10 Most Famous Jilted "Spouses" in Business

10 of 10

Steve Fambro and Chris Anthony and the board of Aptera Motors

Just like in Hollywood, sometimes headlines turn out to be not-so-close to reality. In late 2009, Wired ran a story titled "Aptera Founders Ousted in Boardroom Showdown," which detailed a brutal head-to-head confrontation between Aptera founders Fambro (pictured left) and Anthony and the board of directors of the motor company. A few days later, Popular Mechanics posted a story: "Aptera's False Rumors: Founders Not 'Ousted'—On Vacation." Fambro told the outlet that there was some restructuring, but no break ups, adding: "I think some people read into this situation a little further than they should have." —Nicole Carter
