Who Is Elizabeth Holmes' Husband, Billy Evans?

Disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes made headlines first with her signature black turtlenecks, then due to her staggering net worth as CEO of the medical disruptor company, and later as the mastermind behind an alleged multi-million dollar fraud. Theranos, once the acclaimed unicorn start-up for blood testing, has become the subject of various documentaries, miniseries, and film adaptations because of its complicated criminal connections. Just add Holmes amongst the latest celebrities to be tried for supposedly duping the public!

Yet Holmes' trial has been delayed three times, most recently due to the announcement of her pregnancy. Holmes is reportedly expected to give birth in July 2021, the same month her trial was slated to proceed following the COVID-19 pandemic postponement. As for the father of her child? Well, look no further than husband Billy Evans. The San Diego-based hospitality heir tied the knot with Holmes in 2019 amidst her Theranos scandal, per Insider. So who is Evans?
