Invoice & Melinda Gates name it ended after 27 years
TSR Breakup: After 27 years of marriage, Bill and Melinda Gates have decided to end their union. The billionaires posted a joint message, shared on each of their social media accounts, stating that they have essentially thrown in the towel.
The couple share three adult children and a foundation.
“After much thought and work on our relationship, we made the decision to end our marriage,” the message begins. “Over the past 27 years we’ve raised three amazing children and built a foundation that works around the world to help everyone live healthy and productive lives.”
The couple began dating in 1987 and got married on January 1, 1994.
The split appears to be amicable enough as despite the split, the couple continue to plan to continue their humanitarian work through their foundation.
“We continue to share the belief in this mission and will continue our collaboration at the Foundation, but we no longer believe that we can grow together as a couple in the next phase of our lives,” the message reads. “We ask for space and privacy for our families as we begin to find our way in this new life.”
The Gates’ net worth is estimated at over $ 130 billion.
Bill and Melinda Gates immediately started trending social media after sharing the key announcement.
While some people were jokingly testing whether Bill needed a sugar baby, others mentioned another recent divorce involving billionaires Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos.
The Bezos split up a little less than two years ago and cost Jeff a whopping $ 35 billion!
Now I’m not saying it’s a hot girls’ summer for Melinda and MacKenzie, but the ladies definitely have a hefty bag to enjoy this season!
