Alphabet Chief Executive Officer David Drummond is at the center of a media troop, following a new media release created by a former Google employee who was involved in a longstanding relationship with Drummond more than 10 years ago.  Although the initial affair was reported last fall by the New York Times in the broader context of Google's permitted workplace culture, former employee Jennifer Blakely says in a new and far more detailed account of their relationship that Drummond was a serial Filipino, leaving his wife for Blakely, then leaving Blakely and the son he had born with her for another former Google employee .
She adds that Drummond also had an "affair with his" personal assistant ", who he moved to one of his new homes. ”
We reached out to Google, requesting comment from either the company or Drummond, and we still cannot hear.
This is an extremely incredible port of ait, and it comes at a delicate moment for Google, which last year found itself at the center of the #metoo movement after the Times revealed that another former CEO, Andy Rubin, was awarded a beautiful package for dating sexual offenses, which claim that
In addition to accusing Drummond of neglecting her, Blakely also accuses him of being a missing parent of the child, which she suspects has been trying for years, stating that "[m] ends go where you would not see [their son] or answer my calls th or texts with updates and photographs or even ask how she was doing, let alone how to help, knowing well that I'm alone and in desperate need. "
Elsewhere in his post, Blakely says that after the battle of custody of the boy she won when he was four and a half years old," David began to provide sufficient child support. "
According to several sources familiar with the meeting, she is more nuanced than Blakely describes, and was not a particularly happy union, although the same people admitted that much of her account was true. Drummond, who was Google's chief advisor in 2001
Blakely writes that she had "zero sales experience" and that it was a difficult transition: "I did my best to go on, but I became unwell and became depressed at work. "
She left the company about a year later, in 2008. She says that she and Drummond and their son have been living together by this time, adding that seven months later he split with her via text, saying "Never come back" to their shared home.
"And he doesn't," she writes.
Drummond's star continues to rise on Google, where he is now 17 years old and is now his Senior Vice President, Corporate Development, Ent, and Chief Legal Officer of Google's parent company, Alphabet.
Changes faced by company executives in the past did not face the consequences of sexual misconduct – criticism that it raged last year, prompting an organized exit from tens of thousands of Google employees last November
Among them: Google no longer forces employees to settle disputes with the company in private arbitration, including in cases of sexual harassment or assault; employees can now file complaints of harassment and other misconduct through a dedicated website; and they can bring in colleagues to support them in investigative meetings.
However, Google has never specifically commented on Blakely's claims and will be curious to see if this latest raft is forcing its hand.
The affair and others in the company did not seem to have made dramatic changes to their official contact code, by any means.
