    Facebook co-founder to marry next month

    SORRY, ladies. Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin is off the market, a source close to him has confirmed.

    The 33-year-old Brazilian will marry Elaine Andriejanssen, an Indonesian Chinese based in Singapore, in France next month. The source, a friend of the couple, said the pair threw an engagement party in Bali last month.

    But Mr Saverin's relationship status on his Facebook page says he has been engaged to her since March 27, 2014.

    Page Six, an entertainment website, reported on Tuesday that he would marry Miss Singapore Universe 2009 Rachel Kum in France on June 27.

    This is not true, said the source who asked not to be named. "Ed is definitely not marrying Rachel."

    The source refused to reveal more about the fiancee, except that she is living in Singapore with her family.

    Mr Saverin, who has been living in Singapore since 2009, renounced his United States citizenship in 2012 and is said to be worth US$5.1 billion (S$6.9 billion).
