We heard Eric Schmidt was done with girlfriend Kate Bohner around the time he was seen again with his ex Marcy Simon. But a tipster showed us how Schmidt has been funneling some cash in Bohner's general direction.

Here's how it works: Schmidt is an angel investor in Giiv, a Web service for sending gifts via cell phone that recently raised $2.3 million. Schmidt invested his money through TomorrowVentures LLC, a venture capital fund of which Court Coursey is managing director. Court Coursey is a 36-year old entrepreneur, investor — and "dear friend" to Bohner, according to her website.

None of which is to say Schmidt is back with video producer Bohner; there's no telling when he committed the money (his investment was announced in July), whether he met Coursey through Bohner or vice versa, or whether it's all one big coincidence. But connecting the dots is certainly fun. Let us know if you have more clues.
