In what will be the most expensive divorce since Jeff and Mackenzie Bezos called it quits, Bill and Melinda Gates are filing for divorce. The couple put out a joint statement on Twitter on Monday announcing the separation.
“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,” they wrote.
After 27 Years of Marriage, Bill Gates and Melinda Gates Announce Divorce
This multi-billion dollar divorce is comparable to that of Jeff Bezos and Mackenzie Bezos in 2019. The Gates’ are worth a reported $150 billion (give or take a mill) including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation that was founded in 2000 and is now worth over $40 billion.
“We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation,” they promised.
The Gates divorce has potential enormous implications for their philanthropy, their foundation being the most powerful in the world. Over $5 billion a year is spent by the foundation on causes like worldwide disease eradication and US education.
Or, for those who choose to believe, the dollars are spent on placing tracking devices in your Covid-19 vaccination and attempting to kill the Earth by blocking out the sun.
The joint statement continued, saying of their marriage, “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,” they concluded in the statement.
The Microsoft made billionaires married on New Years Day in 1994. They share three children: son Rory, 21, and daughters Phoebe, 18, and Jennifer, 25.
Bill Gates has reportedly been quietly buying up farmland and is now the U.S’s top private farmland owner. Maybe he’ll chose to move to one of the 242,000 acres to retire and relax alone.
