Winklevoss Twins

Mark Said

He Wanted to F**k Us

4/20/2011 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss are not giving up on their claim ... Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook defrauded them in settling their beef with the social network -- and they point to two damning IMs.

Facebook

The Winklevosses say in new legal papers - obtained by TMZ --  Zuckerberg and Facebook intentionally withheld instant messages sent by Mark in 2004, saying, "Yeah, I'm going to f**k them ... probably in the [ear]."

In another IM, Zuckerberg told a friend, "But they [the twins] made a mistake haha.  They asked me to make it for them.  So I'm like delaying it so it won't be ready until after the facebook thing comes out."

The Winklevosses settled their dispute with Zuckerberg and Facebook for $65 million, but they've been trying to undo the settlement on grounds they were defrauded. 

The twins lost several rounds in court, but now they are asking a federal appellate court to look at the settlement again, and acknowledge the IMs are proof of fraud and therefore the settlement should be invalidated.

people that are saying "oh deal with it" to the twins are stupid. You wouldn't say that if that happened to you! I would bet $65 million on it.

$32.5 million a piece sounds good to me. They need to take it and run. Stop spending the money on attorneys! Should have launched Facebook themselves.. shoulda, woulda, coulda!

They are the stupiest men ever. Please I wish they would fall off the face of the earth for being so damn greedy. Many wish they had 65 million dollars to help themselves out and families. Here these rich old hard cracked up face boys being so selfish and cant take what was handed to them. They need to be shot dead and they are ugly as F**k as well as Mark.

NO 65 million is not enough when Zuck is worth over a billion after committing fraud and screwing them out of billions. Not one person here would take 65million over a billion dollars and if you say you would you are lying. Justice needs to be served.

$65 million for an idea.. they didn't do work, couldn't do the work, the look like a couple of douche bags who probably spent their entire youth picking on kids just like Mark.. they agreed to the settlement if they couldn't make $65 Million work for them they are morons and FB would have gone into the toilet if they'd been running it anyway.
