    Bill & Melinda Gates splitting up after 27yrs

    Bill Gates and Melinda Gates are splitting up after 27 years
    PUBLISHED MON, MAY 3 20214:34 PM


    ---Bill Gates, co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft, said in a tweet on Monday that he and his wife, Melinda Gates, will be splitting up after 27 years. The two will keep working together on philanthropic work, which has addressed education, gender equality and health care. The decision reflects a personal change at the top of American business. Gates led Microsoft as CEO from its founding in 1975 until 2000, leaving Steve Ballmer to run the company.

    ---Financial details of the Gateses parting ways are not yet clear. Bill Gates owns 1.37% of Microsoft’s outstanding shares, which are worth more than $26 billion, according to FactSet. The couple were creators, along with Warren Buffett, of the Giving Pledge, which involves giving away more than half of their wealth.


    ---Last year Bill Gates stepped down from Microsoft’s board as the coronavirus became a force around the world. He began spending more time on the nonprofit Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation alongside Melinda Gates. The two are co-chairs and trustees of the foundation, which launched in 2000.

    It said they were going to give away half of their money anyway, lol. She will have more money than any one could spend. It's a congenial parting, Bill wrote a nice comment in his Twitter account - which I couldn't copy and paste.
