‘A lot of folks are shocked’ by Bill and Melinda Gates’ divorce

Washington Post Technology Reporter Jay Greene says “a lot of folks are shocked” by Bill and Melinda Gates’ divorce which “wasn’t expected at all”. “I’ve been chatting with them over the years for the last 20 plus years and I didn’t see this one coming at all,” he said. “This is a couple that has been well known philanthropically over the years. They appeared jointly during the coronavirus pandemic to push for science-based solutions, you’d see them on talk shows together and other things and so I think there’s a bit of shock”. Mr Greene told Sky News it was yet “unclear” what effect the separation would have on the working of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation although the pair will continue to work there. “According to the divorce filing that they filed today, they’ve signed a separation agreement, so terms are probably pretty close to being settled. “It’s clear that they’re going to split up quite a large sum of money and Melinda Gates will become one of the wealthiest women in the world”.
