Recently, in early May, Bill and Melinda Gates announced their divorce. Many mysteries revolve around this separation after 27 years of marriage. Although speculations revolving around the possible reasons for this divorce are numerous, nothing has yet been formalized by the couple. A source at the New York Post claims Bill Gates confided in his golf friends. Indeed, before the announcement of his divorce, the Microsoft co-founder reportedly said that he and Melinda led separate lives.
According to the New York Post report, Bill described his marriage as loveless. “Bill spoke to his close friends on the golf course,” the source told The Post. “He told them some time ago that his marriage was loveless, that it had been over for some time and that they were leading separate lives,” the source said.
“A difficult relationship”
According to another source at Page Six, Bill Gates was in his $ 12.5 million mansion at the Vintage Club when news of his marriage broke. The billionaire would have stayed there for nearly 3 months.
An article on Post about his source’s revelations joins the explanation of a difficult relationship between Bill and Melinda. This contrasts with the public statements made by the couple. Recall that in 2019, Melinda gave an interview to Insider where she admits that Bill was an incredible support. He would have greatly encouraged him to develop his career. On May 3, Melinda said in divorce papers that her couple was irreparably broken.
