Bill and Melinda Gates are getting divorced, future of foundation in question
I find that a surprise.
He needs to pay his fair share of taxes.
Otherwise, I could care less about his personal life. Why do the Gates's feel like they need to make big headlines with this? People get divorced every day. Americans need to stop idolizing corporate oligarchs.
They have a compound of homes nearby my home. They're very low key when they are here. I've seen Melinda out twice at restaurants with one of their kids, a daughter. I believe their kids are grown now.
........I don't think they get to chose what subjects the media report on.
I understand, but they did issue a press release to the news media.
To a lot of people it's news.
Seems weird that they are divorcing, I mean - why bother - something must be up.
Anybody but me find it interesting that the Queen of England is suddenly single and Bill Gates is getting a divorce? Anybody?
Melinda Gates Was Meeting With Divorce Lawyers Since 2019 to End Marriage With Bill Gates
If this is to be believed, and I have read it in multiple news stories and heard it on the radio today, Bill Gates apparently had ties to Jeffrey Epstein (maybe). He doesn't deny he met him but it sounds like this was the impetus for Melinda to decide to divorce.
I'm keeping my eyes peeled for more info linking the divorce to Epstein.
Gates’ divorce had been in works for years; Epstein ties said to be one source of tension
I don't care about the divorce, however, the relationship with Epstein is interesting.

The more I read of this the more respect I have for Melinda Gates for having a plan to get away from him.
His fascination with Epstein seems to be less than innocent and unaware.
This makes me furious
Bill Gates told golf buddies about his 'loveless' marriage before split, insider claims | Daily Mail Online
Why? They grew apart. The only people who know the true reasons are them. His daughter is ok with him it seems.
Interesting. I just figured it was because their youngest is graduating from high school.
