1) Who is Evan Spiegel?

Evan Spiegel was born in Los Angeles, California in June 1990 to attorneys Melissa and John W. Spiegel and was raised an Episcopalian.

He studied product design at Stanford University, where he met Bobby Murphy and Reggie Brown.

As part of his undergraduate studies, he proposed the idea of ​​what would later become known as Snapchat as a class project — back then called “Picaboo.”

The idea reportedly came about after Brown walked into his college room and told him about a photo he wished he wouldn’t send.

Spiegel left university shortly before completing his degree in 2012 to focus on the photo-sharing application.

He founded the multinational technology and social media company Snap Inc., of which he is CEO.

Court documents reportedly showed Spiegel would serve as chief executive, Murphy as chief technology officer, and Brown as chief marketing officer, the company said LA times.

But Brown, who is credited with the original idea for the missing photo messages, was reportedly locked out of the company’s servers and accounts when Spiegel and Murphy changed passwords.

He sued the couple for breach of contract in 2013 and was awarded a £128.2 million ($157.5 million) settlement, the newspaper reported.

The Snapchat CEO’s fortune was estimated at over £2 billion by Forbes in 2018.

2) What is Evan Spiegel Net Worth?

Evan Spiegel became a multi-billionaire after his company, Snap Inc, went public in March 2017, flogging 200 million shares for £13.90 ($17) each.

Spiegel rejected a £2.4 billion ($3 billion) takeover bid from Facebook in 2013.

The deal alone would have netted him £611m ($750m) personally.

Today, according to Forbes, Spiegel’s market value is around 2.8 billion US dollars.

3) Is Evan Spiegel married?

Spiegel met Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr at a Louis Vuitton dinner in New York in 2014 and became friends before eventually dating.

The model tied the knot with Snapchat billionaire Evan Spiegel in May 2017.

The Australian supermodel, 34, confirmed their engagement by posting a photo of her ring on Instagram in July 2016.

It included a custom Snapchat filter that showed a Bitmoji cartoon proposal and the words “Marry me!”.

The couple bought a $12 million mansion in LA in 2017.

On May 10, 2018, Miranda gave birth to a boy named Hart — her first child with mirrors.

Kerr was previously married to Orlando Bloom between 2010 and 2013 and they have a six-year-old son named Flynn.

She became one of the highest-earning models in the world when she accepted the position of Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2007.

During an interview with GQ Magazine in 2014, she came out as bisexual.
