Some guy in France is suing Uber for an incredible amount of cash. How much dough? The headline suggests “Over 47 million,” because this man is suing for exactly $47.89 million. That’s 45 million in euros. Wow. All that coin, just because an app glitch informed the wife about all those times he went to see his side chick(s). Good deals, huh? Definitely for not for Uber or that guy’s now ex-wife.

How did all this craziness come about? The suit alleges that a bug in the Uber app informed this man’s wife of her husband’s cheating ways via notifications of his pickups and destinations. Apparently, he logged into wife’s phone once to use Uber. He logged out of the app, however, the notifications kept on coming to his wife’s phone. Yikes!

After she was absolutely convinced that he was cheating, she dumped his ass and filed for divorce. Those notifications were enough to seal the deal.

“The information made his wife suspect he was having an affair and ultimately led to the breakup of their marriage, the man claims.
It is unclear what caused the malfunction but Le Figaro suggests it is an issue with iPhones running iOS versions older than December 2015. Philanderous Android users, or iPhone users running up-to-date software appear to be safe from detection using this method. It is unclear how many Uber’s 40 million monthly active customers might be affected.
A spokesperson for Uber has declined to comment on the issue, telling Le Figaro that, “Uber doesn’t publicly comment on individual cases, and especially those which concern things such as a divorce procedure.” via The Independent

But if this guy wins the lawsuit, what are we learning from all this? That is pays to cheat? What is the world coming to?
