While U2 frontman Bono is set to rake in over a billion bucks with the Facebook IPO, it’s co-founder Saverin that stands to make even more. So much that he’s ditching the US for good in favor of a tax free life in Singapore.

Saverin co-founded Facebook at age 21, then left two years later with a legal settlement that cut him off from Facebook but left him insanely rich.

Saverin was born in Brazil and after his stint in America (where he went to Harvard), became a permanent resident of Singapore.
