Just a few days ago, we brought you news that Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin had renounced his U.S. citizenship and plans to stay in Singapore. Saverin, who is expected to be worth around $3 billion after Facebook goes public with its Earth-shattering IPO, has been criticized by some who see his decision as simply a means to avoid U.S. capital gains tax. Saverin says that's not the case, but it could mean that he'd be unable to ever return to these United States.
Facebook Co-Founder Eduardo Saverin, who you may remember as "that laptop-freakout guy Andrew Garfield played in The Social Network," is no longer a U.S. citizen. Instead, he has opted to be a citizen of Singapore exclusively. The publication of his name in the Federal register Quarterly Publication of Individuals Who Have Chosen to Repatriate indicates that he renounced his citizenship sometime before April 30th. Why? Probably taxes.
This morning, the blogs were abuzz about what appeared to be the second trailer for The Social Network, the upcoming sensationalist thriller about the sensational and thrilling founding of Facebook, based on the Ben Mezrich novel of the same name. Well, it looks like the second Facebook movie trailer just might be (takes off sunglasses) a Fake-book.
