    Ayyadurai has been credited with "inventing" email, but his role in developing the technology behind electronic mail has been disputed.

    Earlier this summer, the couple looked madly in love as they shared a kiss while on vacation.

    "Signing for now dolls," she Tweeted while displaying some PDA. "Be happy b well. B loving"

    That shouldn't be a problem for this duo.
