Bankman-Fried’s net worth has plummeted from an estimated $26 billion to approximately $0. However, many who have heard about the news of FTX’s collapse and if the founder could land in jail or not have also heard of his ex-girlfriend.
Sam Bankman-Fried is rumored to have dated a top executive at FTX’s affiliate trading company, Alameda Research. The woman is named Caroline Ellison.
According to a CoinDesk report, Ellison and Bankman-Fried dated at one stage, citing those close to the FTX hierarchy. However, they are no longer thought to be romantically involved.

“And a lot of them are like really uncertain, which is kind of terrifying.”
The Stanford Alumnus, who later earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 2016, also spoke of her love for reading, especially the Harry Potter books.
She later admitted that she never thought she’d go into trading.
