BREAKING: Bill and Melinda Gates divorce after 27 years of marriage…

Newsonspot.com.ng reports that Bill and Melinda Gates say they are getting divorced after 27 years of marriage, saying “we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple”.

“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” the pair wrote on Twitter.

Bill and Melinda met in 1987. Melinda was 24 and had just started working for Microsoft and Bill was the CEO. They married in 1994, and a year later, Bill became the richest man in the world. They have three children.

Four years later, they started the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a philanthropic organization dedicated to fighting “poverty, disease and inequity around the world.” The foundation, which is considered one of the world’s largest private charities, has invested more than $1.75 billion to fight COVID-19.

Last March, Bill stepped down from his role on Microsoft’s board of directors to focus on his work with the foundation, Newsonspot.com.ng gathered.

They jointly run the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
