Steve Jobs has dated

  1. Chrisann Brennan (1972-1977) – Steve Jobs first started dating Chrisann Brennan in 1972 while they were studying in high school. However, their relationship was volatile and very on and off in nature. In 1973, he rented a house near Reed Campus and invited her to live with him. They had been having affairs with others and it was Jobs attempt to make their relationship monogamous. However, she decided against living with him. After a brief hiatus, they got back together in 1975. They had accidentally bumped into each other while being involved with a Zen Buddhist community in Los Altos. They again separated as she went to India with her new boyfriend, Greg Calhoun, who was Jobs’ classmate at Reed College. Jobs himself drove them to the airport. Upon returning from her trip to India, they again started seeing each other. But as he achieved success with Apple, their relationship grew more complex. Their relationship was delivered a final blow when she told him that she was pregnant with his child. He even refused to discuss pregnancy with her. She had to clean houses for money and had to rely on welfare for her existence. She asked Jobs for money on a couple of occasions but he refused to help. He even started telling people that she was sleeping around and he was infertile, therefore, he couldn’t have got her pregnant. In May 1978, she gave birth to Lisa Brennan. He publicly continued to deny paternity. In fact, he even questioned the credibility of the paternity test, after which he had been ordered to pay Chrisann $500 per month. After he was forced out of Apple, he eventually repaired his relationship with her and reached a co-parenting equation with her.
  2. Diane Keaton – While he was living in San Remo apartment building, he wanted to get together with actress Diane Keaton who was living in the same iconic building on Central Park West. However, when she went over to his huge apartment, he kept on talking about the computers and how they were going to take over the world. So, it didn’t lead to anything.
  3. Joan Baez – In his Steve Jobs’ biography, Walter Isaacson claimed that Jobs dated singer Joan Baez for a brief period of time. They were introduced in 1982 by her sister Mimi Farina. They started dating seriously little while later. It was claimed that he was most fascinated by the fact that she had dated Bob Dylan in the past. Their relationship came to an end when he revealed that he wanted children. Baez wasn’t ready for it.
  4. Laurene Powell (1989-2011) – Steve Jobs first met Laurene Powell in 1989 while he was giving a lecture at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. She was one of the students and he couldn’t take his eyes off her during his lecture. After the lecture, he met her in the parking lot and asked her out for a dinner. He proposed to her on the New Year’s Day in 1990 with a bunch of freshly picked wildflowers. In May 1991, they got married in a Buddhist Ceremony. At the end of the ceremony, they went for a hike. In September 1991, the couple welcomed their first child, son Reed. They welcomed their second child, daughter Erin into their family in August 1995. In 1998, she gave birth to their third child, daughter Eve. They remained together until his death.
