Charles Phillips, the co-president of Oracle Corporation, got some unwanted press last week when giant billboards popped up in New York’s Times Square, San Francisco and Atlanta displaying photos of the executive with YaVaughnie Wilkins, the woman with whom he had an eight-year affair.

The billboards included quotes from Phillips to Wilkins, including “You are my soul mate forever” and a web site with photos and videos of the two together. The web site, which has since been taken down, was commissioned by Wilkins as a present to Phillips, reports Business Week. Images from the site were preserved by Gawker.

Phillips has since issued a statement acknowledging the eight-year relationship with Wilkins, which has since ended. His wife, Karen, began divorce proceedings in 2008, though it’s been speculated that the couple was heading toward a reconciliation.

Phillips sits on the boards of Viacom and Morgan Stanley, as well as President Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board. None of the companies affiliated with Phillips has commented on the developments.
