How's this for a sign of the times? The NEW YORK POST's Page 6, its popular show biz/reality show gossip column, has reported that FACEBOOK Founder MARK ZUCKERBERG and NAPSTER Co-Founder and current SPOTIFY honcho SEAN PARKER got into a public shouting match outside a WEST HOLLYWOOD nightclub. The argument concerned FACEBOOK’s current relationship with SPOTIFY.
Sources told THE POST that the two left the SPOTIFY launch announcement to go to THE BEVERLY club in WEST HOLLYWOOD. "They spent a lot of money on alcohol, and as the night went on they got into an intense discussion, which turned into a loud argument as they left," the source recalled. "SEAN argued that all SPOTIFY users should not be forced to sign up for a FACEBOOK account, but MARK wouldn’t budge. It was a full-on screaming match outside the club, but stopped short at coming to blows. They then stormed off in different directions."
A rep for PARKER admitted to the POST that "Most stories have a grain of truth. There were together at THE BEVERLY, they did discuss SPOTIFY and FACEBOOK, but they did not have an argument. They have spoken several times since. Sean is looking forward to seeing MARK at a wedding this weekend."
