How did Elizabeth Holmes and Billy Evans meet? Billy and Holmes met at a Fleet Week house party to benefit wounded warriors back in 2017. He was 25 at the time and living with roommates. “To say we immediately fell in love isn’t an overstatement,” he told The New York Times.
Billy proposed to Holmes with “his MIT signet ring,” which he “always wore on his pinky finger,” one of his former colleagues at Luminar Technologies told the New York Post. Now, Holmes wears the ring on a chain around her neck.
“He could snap his fingers and have a triple-A diamond engagement ring instantly if he wanted to. But if you give her some extravagant ring, it could end up owned by the feds if she has to give up her material possessions,” the source explained.
Getting all parties to approve of their relationship wasn’t easy for the pair. “Billy’s family is like, ‘What the f–k are you doing?’ It’s like he’s been brainwashed,” one source shared with The New York Post. “He’s had a lot of people very close to him sit him down and have a talk.”
Relatives offered plenty of objections, the insider explained: “‘This could be the biggest mistake you’ll ever make.’ ‘The negativity around her could blow back on you.’ ‘You’ve never encountered anything like this.’ ‘You need to think hard about what you’re doing.’”
Holmes was convicted of fraud in connection to her blood-testing company, Theranos.
