Bill Gates is not really the type to speak about his private life and sticks to promoting his actions through his foundation.
In 2021, the creator of Microsoft however announced to separate from his wife Melinda Gates, without ever specifying the reasons for this divorce. The only clue to the state of their relationship: Melinda, despite the separation, remained to work for their Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which fights against poverty and supports health systems in areas of the world in need.
This Thursday, September 8, Bill Gates came out of the shadows and confided in our colleagues at Paris Match for a long time. He gave an update on his relationship with his ex-wife. “We are constantly exchanging e-mails in relation to the foundation”, he delivered. “Mélinda is a valuable partner in ensuring that the money I have invested is spent in the most effective way. I praise the way he works with me, seeing what I don’t see.”
In this interview he also felt a man proud of his personal journey. “I also have three wonderful children and a very good relationship with Melinda, despite all the mistakes I may have made.. So I consider myself very lucky that she chose to stay with the foundation.” Feelings of peacefulness rarely exposed in broad daylight.
