Wales' relationship, breakup with journalist Rachel Marsden raises questions about possible improprieties
NEW YORK, March 4 (UPI) -- The New York ex-girlfriend of Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales says that after insisting their relationship be secret he dumped her on the Web site.
Rachel Marsden, a right-wing pundit who recently moved from Canada, decided to go public herself by selling some of her ex-beau's personal items on eBay, the New York Post reported.
"Hi, my name is Rachel, and my (now ex-) boyfriend, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, just broke up with me via an announcement on Wikipedia," Marsden wrote on eBay.
"It was such a classy move that I was inspired to do something equally classy myself, so I'm selling a couple of items of clothing he left behind, here in my NYC apartment, on eBay."
The on-line battle began Saturday. Wales, apparently stung by suggestions that he had edited the Wikipedia entry on Marsden, posted a personal statement: "I am no longer involved with Rachel Marsden."
Marsden told the Post that Wales was "paranoid" about their relationship and had threatened that she could be jailed or deported if she let anyone know personal details.
