The Social Network led audiences to believe that Facebook co-founders Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg would forever harbor bad blood between each other. After all, Saverin was made out to be the main (personal) casualty of Zuckerberg’s business dealings and diluting of shares. And earlier this month, private e-mails confirmed this, as Zuckerberg was revealed to have written his lawyer at the time, “Is there a way to do this without making it painfully apparent to him that he’s being diluted to 10%?’
Yet, according to a recent interview with Brazilian newspaper Veja, Saverin insists that the conflict is over.
“I have only good things to say about Mark, there are no hard feelings between us,” said Saverin. “His focus on the company since its very first day is nothing short of admirable.”
As for the more contentious incidents portrayed in the movie, Saverin said, “I would never throw a laptop at someone,” adding, “Not even at Mark.” Perhaps time heals all wounds. Or the $4 billion he made from Facebook’s IPO.
