A former Google employee elaborated on previous allegations about her relationship with a powerful executive at Google parent Alphabet Inc., saying that she was forced out of the company and that he refused to help raise their child.

Jennifer Blakely, who worked in Google’s legal department, posted a detailed account of her involvement with Alphabet Chief Legal Officer David Drummond, claiming he broke company rules about workplace relationships and declined to pay child support for several years after abandoning her and the son they had while they were together. In her post on the blogging site Medium, Blakely alleges that Drummond went years without seeing the child or participating in his upbringing.
