Bill Gates and wife,Melinda are divorcing.
The Editor Nigeria reports that Billionaire tech pioneer and founder of Microsoft Bill Gates and his wife Melinda Gates have announced they are divorcing. The couple had been married for about 27 years and both manage the multibillion-dollar philanthropic organization, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The only reason they gave for the shocking divorce news is that ‘ …no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives’.
See excerpts of the notice shared via the Twitter handle of Bill Gates.
After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, 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 our 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.
