Brin and Shanahan, 37, share a daughter, who was born in 2018, and the Google founder has asked to share custody of her as part of the divorce arrangements, which they are fighting to keep private out of fear that their daughter will be put at risk of 'harassment' or 'kidnapping'. However he has not asked Shanahan for child support and has requested that she do not receive any from him in the future.

According to Insider, Brin and Shanahan are intent on keeping the details of their divorce hidden from the public, with the outlet reporting that they are fighting to keep many details of the legal proceedings sealed, citing the tech mogul's status as 'one of the wealthiest and most famous technology entrepreneurs in the world' as being behind the need for privacy.

The couple are shelling out for a private judge to oversee their divorce in a bid to keep the details closely guarded, with Insider reporting that they are paying $950 an hour to employ the judge, as well as an additional $300 an hour for the judge's assistant. While costly, the use of a private judge can also help speed up divorce proceedings, which can take months, if not years, when handled by the public court system. The arrangement is one that Brin is well-versed in; the Stanford-educated tech mogul also employed a private judge for his first divorce from entrepreneur Anne Wojcicki (pictured), with whom he shares two children, in 2015.

Most of the details of the former couple's divorce remain under wraps and the Google co-founder is no doubt hoping that this will also be the case in his second marriage split. The tech mogul began dating Shanahan in 2015 soon after his first divorce was finalized, and they secretly tied the knot on November 7, 2018, only revealing the news of their nuptials to the world in October the following year. Brin and Shanahan went public with their relationship in 2016, when they made a glamorous debut as a couple at the Met Gala, appearing on the red carpet alongside the Google co-founder's ex wife Wojcicki and her then-boyfriend Alex Rodriguez. Sergey Brin, Google Inc. co-founder, left, Larry Page, Google Inc. co-founder, center, and Eric Schmidt, Google Inc. chairman and chief executive officer in 2010.

The tech baron is being represented by law firm Hanson, Crawford, Crum Family Law Group, LLP in his second divorce, while Shanahan has enlisted the services of two law firms: Spector Law Firm, APLC and Meyer, Olson, Lowy & Meyers, LLP.

When Bezos split from his ex-wife MacKenzie Scott (pictured) in 2019, he had to hand over $38 billion to her, quickly rocketing her to 22nd richest person in the world, while Gates is understood to have split his $130 billion fortune with his ex-wife Melinda when they finalized their divorce in August 2021. It is currently unclear which assets Brin and Shanahan will be divvying up during their divorce proceedings - however property will likely play a key role in the arrangement.

News of Brin's second divorce comes two and a half years after he and his Google co-founder Larry Page announced that they were stepping down from their roles as CEO and President of the website's parent company, Alphabet.

In 2018, Shanahan and Brin founded the Buck Institute’s Center for Female Reproductive Longevity and Equality, after going through their own infertility struggles. Both Brin and Shanahan invested in the project, which was aimed at researching how to prevent aging women from becoming infertile. Shanahan was told by doctors at age 29 that she had a low number of active ovarian oocytes and would unlikely be able to conceive naturally, prompting her to try IVF, which failed.
