He is married to the Instagram model Priscila Bergmair and lives in London.[3]

Mindgeek

In December 2020, the Financial Times published a report on Mindgeek's ownership structure.[4] Mindgeek is Owner of Pornhub, which has come under international criticism for insufficient protection of improperly uploaded porn videos. The Financial Times report was based on a parliamentary inquiry in Canada of Pornhub's practice, in which Mindgeek directors and minority owners David Marmorstein Tassillo and Feras Antoon named "Bernard Bergemar" as the main owner. As a result, there was a cooperation between the British research platform Tortoise Media and the Austrian "Dossier", which identified "Bernard Bergemar" with Bernd Bergmair.[5] The "Dossier" research showed that he covers 103 hectares of land in Austria and is registered as the owner via various letterbox companies.[1] After it became known that her husband is the owner of the porn company, his wife is reported to have asked him to sell the business.[6]
