Bill Gates and his wife Melinda French tied the knot on a golf course on the Hawaiian island of Lanai on January 1, 1994. But now almost 30 years down the line, the pair have announced they are going their separate ways in a post on Twitter. The shock update came just a week after the recent public appearance together at a virtual event for healthcare workers.
The statement said: “After a great deal of thought and a lot of work, we have made the decision to end our marriage.
“Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives.
“We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue to work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.
“We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life.”
