Google co-founder, Larry Page has reportedly been living off the grid and hiding out in Fiji on isolated islands for more than a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Page, 48, is said to be avoiding being photographed except for a handful of times since stepping down as CEO of Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc. in 2019.
Sources told Insider that he has spent months in Fiji during the coronavirus pandemic, mostly on the island of Tavarua and it has been rumored the billionaire has bought at least one island in the country’s Mamanuca archipelago.
Page has also been spotted on a smaller island called Namotu which a sailor named Lorenzo Cipriani claimed Page bought in a blog post in August.
According to Insider, he took his private jet to donate COVID-19 medical supplies to Fiji last month as a second wave of the pandemic hit the country – which was reported by Fijian Broadcasting Company News on June 19.
However, that story has since disappeared from the state-owned news site – and sources told Insider that health officials in Fiji asked for it to come down, claiming that the information should not have been made public.
A source confirmed to DailyMail.com that the article had been removed after health officials asked for the story to be taken down because ‘they didn’t want the donation highlighted.’
