“After much thought and work on our relationship, we decided to end our marriage. In the last 27 years, we have raised three children and set up a foundation fund to help people around the world lead healthy and productive lives, ”said the couple’s statement, which Microsoft founder Gates posted on Twitter.
The couple met in the late 1980s, when Melinda joined Microsoft. They jointly manage the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. One of the richest charities in the world is also involved in the current fight against the pandemic covid-19 disease.
The couple add that they will continue to work together in the foundation, but no longer as a couple. At the same time, they asked to give the family privacy. The reasons for the breakdown of the marriage of the prominent couple, but also how the fairytale property will be divided during the divorce, were not disclosed to the Gates.
Since 1987, Gates has been ranked among the world’s richest people by Forbes magazine. Between 1995 and 2017, he repeatedly held the first place. According to the last ranking, he is in fourth place, his assets exceed the value of $ 100 billion.
Gates is not the first billionaire whose marriage has broken down recently. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos divorced two years ago, and his ex-wife, MacKenzie Scott, remarried in March.
