Zynga Founder’s Wife Files for Divorce and Asks to Nullify Prenup

Billionaire Mark Pincus is embroiled in a high stakes divorce battle with his wife, Alison Gelb Pincus.

The Silicon Valley power couple has been married for more than 8 years. They have 3 children together.

Mark is the founder of Zynga and an early Facebook and Twitter Investor. Alison is the co-founder of One Kings Lane, which was sold to Bed Bath & Beyond in 2016 for $30 million.

Alison filed for divorce in San Francisco County Superior Court. The estranged couple is asking for joint custody of the children and Alison is asking the court to invalidate a prenuptial (or premarital) agreement. Mark founded Zynga in 2007, a year before the couple married. Zynga became a $1 billion company within 4 years and Mark is worth $1.28 billion.
