Surprise, surprise. Ashley Madison founder and CEO, Noel Biderman, is the latest name to join the long list of married individuals who have some fessin’ up to do.
In addition to the 37 million usernames and profiles that were leaked last week, hundreds of Biderman’s emails were also released, and the proof is in the pudding: the multimillionaire appears to have had several affairs himself.
Biderman is married and has two young children, and told the Daily News last February that he had never cheated on his wife.
“If I wanted to have an affair, I would have one,” he told the paper at the time.
According to BuzzFeed News, nearly 300 emails spanning from July 2012 to early May of this year show an ongoing correspondence between Biderman and a woman from Toronto.
The woman, who first identifies herself as “Melisa from the spa,” sent her first email to Biderman on July 24, 2012, and the two exchanged numerous emails over the next three years, mostly to set up days and places to meet up.
In September 2014, however, she sent an email to Biderman detailing her guilt over their ongoing affair, specifically with regards to her “very intuitive” boyfriend.
“Hi Noel, I booked the novotel again at 3pm today, but I’m going to have to cancel it,” she wrote. “I feel extremely guilt-ridden because of my boyfriend. He’s very intuitive and almost found out last time. I’m sorry. I don’t want to lose him.”
In the email, the woman also alluded to being paid for their meetups, and asked to borrow $1,500 from the multimillionaire. Subsequent emails show that the woman may have interviewed for a job at Avid Life Media, but ultimately didn’t think “it’s the right kind of environment for me.”
Their correspondence fizzled out shortly afterward.
Biderman’s emails reveal that he may have also been in contact with other women as well over the years — including a Toronto woman whose number is linked to TheEroticReview.com.
