Michael, a close confidant of CEO Travis Kalanick, joined Uber in 2013 and has been serving as Kalanick's "acting number two," according to the Journal. He would be the latest in a string of executives to leave the company as controversies have piled up.

Recode reports that Michael is under pressure to resign, but has not yet decided to do so.
