A bit of a light hearted story - well, at least in a way - as a man is suing Uber for causing his divorce. Yeah, you read that right.

The French businessman is suing the ridesharing giant for a huge $48 million, after a notification bug with the Uber app let his wife spy on his whereabouts. The man used his wife's smartphone to order Ubers, and then signed out of the app - but, the notifications continued rolling in, after he thought he had signed out.

 

His wife would've have learned about the affairs from the Uber notifications, with all of his orders, drive names, license plate, and arrival times. His real-time location wouldn't have been tracked, but if he said he'd be working late at the office or catching up with friends for a drink, his wife would know he's lying from his Uber notifications.

 

An Uber spokesperson told French news site Le Figaro: "Uber doesn't comment publicly on individual cases, and especially on cases that involve a divorcing couple".
