Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt is reportedly ‘dating a lot of women’ in spite of the fact he is still legally married to his wife of 39 years.
Schmidt – who boasts a $13.2 billion fortune – hit headlines last months amid rumours he had proposed to 32-year-old medical school grad Alexandra Duisberg.
But an ex-flame of Schmidt’s told The New York Post on Saturday that it’s unlikely the tech powerhouse is interested in settling down.
‘I think there are a lot of women who date him who think they are going to be the next Mrs. Schmidt,’ the anonymous woman stated.
‘But he dates a lot of women. He likes to have a ship in every port.’
The remark has led the publication to dub Schmidt ‘New York City’s hottest bachelor’.
