While Sergey Brin and Larry Page get all the credit for starting Google, software developer Scott Hassan also deserves some of the credit. Most of the foundational code for the search engine was written by Hassan, who served as the main developer. Alison Huynh, Scott Hassan’s former wife, allegedly received a divorce request from Scott 17 years ago. Unfortunately, the divorce proceedings between them have been going on for almost a decade.
The pair were married for 13 years before filing for divorce in 2004. Huynh’s attorney Pierce O’Donnell told DailyMail.com that the two exes’ total assets were worth an estimated $1.8 billion in 2018. As for Scott Hassan, O’Donnell claims he created the harmful AllisonHuynh.com website to smear Huynh. In the site’s defence, it did link to a few glowing profiles of Allison. But it also included links to three papers regarding damaging litigation she was involved in.
