Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has officially disputed claims that he signed away a majority stake of his $25 billion dollar company to the owner of a wood-pellet fuel store in upstate New York.
“Mark Zuckerberg made it clear that Paul Ceglia’s claims are absurd and we strongly suspect the contract is forged,” Facebook confirmed in an official statement.
“However, we have not seen the original – no one has, including the court. Thus, we’re focusing on the things that are not open to interpretation and are indisputable.
“[Of course], Mark could not have given interest in a company that didn’t exist or an idea he had not thought of yet and, even if he could, the statute of limitations has [long] expired.”
Unsurprisingly, Ceglia continues to maintain that he signed a contract with the young Facebook founder in 2003 which entitles him a whopping 84 percent stake in the multi-billion dollar company.
