Why the Divorce of Bill and Melinda Gates makes it to the TOP news? Reasons are here...

"After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage," the pair tweeted. Oh no. This is not the ordinary pair, they're extraordinary couple in this world.

By posting the same identical message on their twitter accounts on 3rd May 2021, Bill and Melinda Gates have announced that they are getting divorce after 27 years of marriage, saying "we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple".

While we don't know what exactly happened between two of them, but, social medias have been flushing about this divorce all day long. And, we won't write about the relationship, but we will write about what is related to $$$$$$$$$

The three reasons why this divorce make it to the TOP news!

  1. Among the World's Wealthiest Person Couple

    The founder of Microsoft Corp, Bill Gates, 65, was formerly the world’s richest person and now he is the 4th wealthiest person in the world, according to Forbes, and is worth a whopping of USD 130 billion at the time of writing this post.

    Meanwhile, Melinda Gates has a reported net worth of $70 billion.

  2. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

    Questions immediately sprang up about how the couple would settle their estate and if it would have any impact on the Gates foundation. Why? This is simply because "The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation" is one of the most influential private foundations in the world, with an endowment worth nearly $50 billion.

    Yeah. You read it correctly. The amount is greater than the annual GDP of many countries in this planet. Wow! However, news sources mentioned that the couple said that they would continue to work together at their Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

  3. Comparable to Jeff Bezos's 2019 Divorce

    Before Gates' divorce, another world's wealthiest person - Amazon founder Jeff Bezos split from MacKenzie Scott in 2019 was the most expensive divorce in history. Simply because of this split, Scott received US$38 billion and currently has a net worth of US$6.1 billion, making her the third-wealthiest woman in the world.

    Naturally, people will compare that of Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates now. Another world's wealthiest woman is in the making?

"Coincidentally, both are founders of tech-giant listed companies. The advancement of technologies really caused us losing human touch? Lolzzz."
