Melinda Gates Celebrates 'Resilience' In Mother’s Day Post Amid Bill Gates Divorce

Eldest daughter Jennifer penned her own tribute, posting a photo of her and her siblings with Melinda to Instagram, captioning it: "Our queen, hero and mum- every day".

Those sources said Melinda told her husband she was uncomfortable with Epstein after the couple met him that year, but Bill reportedly continued a relationship with Epstein, despite her concerns. Arnold said, "Bill Gates regrets ever meeting with Epstein and recognizes it was an error in judgment to do so".

The couple announced their split in a joint statement posted to Twitter last Monday, saying they "will continue to work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in the next phase of our lives".

"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". A source said to People that this was the former couple's plan to keep things as civil and private as possible, as they still plan to work together at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

According to the WSJ, the divorce filing shows that Bill and Melinda were around 1,250 miles apart when they finally signed it-Bill was in Palm Desert, California, while Melinda did so near the foundation headquarters and family home in Bellevue, Washington.

"I love being their mother", she tweeted, alongside a throwback photo of her with the three as children.

Her concerns apparently came to a head several years later and she started talking to NY divorce lawyer Robert Stephan Cohen in October 2019. Gates' eldest daughter, Jennifer Gates called it a challenging time for the family as she reacted to the news of her parents' divorce. "She had other boyfriends, and I had Microsoft".

Bill previously played down his relationship with Epstein, telling The Journal in 2019 that he had met him but "didn't have any business relationship or friendship with him".

"It got hot. We both got angry".

How much money is at stake?

Bill Gates, who co-founded Microsoft, has an estimated net worth of $124 billion, according to Forbes.

It is publicly unclear why the couple is divorcing. The duo shocked the world earlier this month when they announced that they are getting a divorce after being together for more than 27 years.

Instead, the two have signed a separation contract for dividing their property and possessions, but the terms of that agreement have not been publicly disclosed in court documents.
