Are Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg still friends?

Eduardo Saverin indicted Facebook over breach of fiduciary responsibility. While other holders had their shares intact, it was Eduardo's share that was diluted. Facebook & Saverin settled, and he walked away with 4% or 5% of the corporation. Also, Saverin was made to sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement). So currently Mr. Saverin can't say anything bad about Zuckerberg or Facebook it shows they are good friend so far. If he does so, he might face lawful action.

Also, Eduardo has refused his American residency and is now living in Singapore.  So the association would be of mutual reverence for each other’s works.

Facebook's overseas co-founder, Eduardo Saverin, lastly addressed publicly the rift between himself and Facebook CEO Zuckerberg, said there were "no hard emotion” among the two.

Saverin, 30, 1 of the social network hulk's original four founders, spoke of his association with Zuckerberg, how it was depicted by Hollywood, his recent choice to give up his U.S. residency and his current work in Singapore in a cover story for the Brazilian journal Veja (link in Portuguese).

Saverin, who said he could not formerly speak publicly due to contract fetters with other Facebook shareholders, offers nothing but admiration for his past Harvard classmate and his running of the corporation the two founded in 2004, in the piece, whose online complement was published this weekend.

“I have only decent things to say about Mark, there are no bad feelings between us," Saverin said, according to conversions by Forbes. "His focus on the corporation since its very first day is everything short of estimable. He was a visionary; he permanently knew that the only way for Facebook to grow was to keep its central idea, that of people actually presenting themselves as they are, without nicknames or pseudonyms. That’s a Facebook’s major strength, what allowed us to change it into an instrument of complaint, like what happened in Egypt, but also in a tool of business, not to mention a way of obviously connecting with friends.”

About the 2010 film "The Social Network" that dedicated to Saverin's separation from Facebook, the Brazilian native thought it was a "Hollywood fantasy" and not rather to be taken as a documentary.

"Facebook wasn’t made out of a Harvard dormitory window," he said. "And I would not ever throw a laptop at somebody, like it seems in the movie.

Saverin also spoke about his choice to give up his U.S. citizenship, which made news soon before Facebook's first stock offering earlier this month. Saverin received much blame for the move, which was perceived by numerous as a way by him to dodge paying taxes for his Facebook wealth.

“The decision was severely based on my interest of living and working in Singapore," he said. "I am grateful and I will pay hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes to the American management. I already paid and I will keep paying whatsoever taxes I owe based on my time as a U.S. citizen.”
