Gates divorce: Bill and Melinda split after 27 years
After 27 years of marriage, the billionaire couple is no more. Yesterday the Gates announced their separation in a joint statement and on their social media accounts.
“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,” the statement read. “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.”
The Gates met at Microsoft in 1994.
