It was on Mother’s Day that Melinda Gates decided to break her silence. On Twitter, Melinda, mother of 3, shares a personal message to all the moms. On her publication, we see in particular a photo of her with her children with the caption “I love being their mother”. “Whatever Mother’s Day means to you – a day to celebrate a mom, honor a memory or reflect on your own resilience – I hope your day is full of meaning,” she shared.
Recall that Bill and Melinda had announced their divorce earlier this month. This ends the 27 years of marriage between the founders of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It is on a joint statement via Twitter that each had entrusted that they “no longer believe they can evolve together”.

“An always mysterious rupture”
“After having thought a lot and worked on our relationship, we made the decision to end our marriage,” the couple announced on the networks. The mystery of the real reason for this divorce still hangs over. Relatives of the couple say this decision is not the result of a specific incident, but of a set of circumstances.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Melinda would have already consulted divorce lawyers in 2019. Among the big names with whom she would have spoken, there is Robert Stephan Cohen. At this same time, Bill Gates was particularly close to Jeffrey Epstein.
