Breaking Up with Julia Allison Is a Good Way to Make MoneyS

Pranky videogame designer Charles Forman has scored another $5 million for his startup, OMGpop. We're beginning to see a pattern here!

Forman broke up with ubiquitous yet pointless media presence Julia Allison last summer, right around the time he raised a round of $1.5 million. Digg founder Kevin rose also briefly dated Allison last year, and then raised a ton of money. The conclusion: Severing ties with Allison is the most sure-fire way for a tech boy to get rich! This is good news for Eater editor and fellow Allison ex Ben Leventhal, who is surely due for more funding.
