Wow! Who saw this coming!? Microsoft founder, and billionaire tech junkie Bill Gates is hitting the single lifestyle as he and his wife (Melinda, 56 years old) filed for divorce. Bill and Melinda have been married for 27 years, and seemed so connected publicly. Then came the tweet below by the couple shot out on Twitter making the world know that they are going through a divorce.
It’s difficult not to think of the dollars signs when you hear of a divorce process taking place with a well known public figure as Bill Gates with billions to his name. Bill is 65 years old and has a net-worth upwards to a whopping $150 billion dollars. And! GET THIS!? Bill had no pre-nuptial agreement with Melinda. It wouldn’t be wrong if Bill is crossing his fingers hoping for the best. After all, Melinda is in a position to clean half and possibly more of his hard earned wealth away. The couple released a statement on their divorce through Bill’s Twitter account saying:
Bill and Melinda have 3 kids together; two girls and a boy. No longer children, the Gates children ages are 18, 21 and 25 years old- and they are all said to be millionaires many times.
over in their own right. Oh, in case you still cannot grasp how rich Bill Gates is…he is the fourth richest man in the world. Wonder if the might of COVID got to this couple, which they had no power of withstanding.
The long talk since COVID-19 arrived is that it has not only destroyed lives- but also relationships. People are forced in tight communication with each other ever than before- and an overwhelming more amount of time with each other- due to lock-downs and workplace layoffs. COVID has not only proven to kill lives, but has also proved to test the strength of relationships.
