Multimillionaire Tumblr founder, David Karp has split with his girlfriend of five years. The 28-year-old whiz kid started dating psychology graduate student and trained chef Rachel Eakley in 2009 but the couple broke up at the end of 2014, Dailymail reports.
The low-key couple, who lived together in a small West Village apartment before they moved to a $1.6 million loft in south Williamsburg in 2012, with their French-English Bulldog, were quiet about the breakup, but Eakley spoke about it briefly on her Tumblr page.
She posted a message from another user remarking on the split. The user wrote;
'They really suck, right? And you built a house together, and probably got left with nothing since you weren't married…
Her comment was;
'Maybe it's better to hear someone agree that it sucks instead of someone telling you time heals all wounds blah blah blah?'
Karp sold his company for $1.1 billion to Yahoo! under CEO Marissa Meyer in 2013 and he is worth an estimated $200 million, according to Forbes. But broke up with his live in lover and left her with nothing, reports say.
