Bill Gates is opening up about his divorce from Melinda French Gates.

Anderson Cooper interviewed the Microsoft co-founder and admitted that Melinda’s divorce after 27 years of marriage was “a source for great personal sadness”.

When Bill was asked how he is doing, Bill said that it was a very sad milestone. “Melinda is a wonderful person, and that partnership ended is a source for great personal sadness. We are still communicating and working on [Bill & Melinda Gates] Foundation. That partnership is something we hope to continue.”

“Melinda brings incredible strengths to the foundation that make it better. He said, “We always enjoyed our work together.” “That would be the best thing for our foundation.”

Anderson brought up another point: Anderson pointed out to Bill that media outlets such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Wall Street Journal reported recently that Melinda was worried about Bill’s social connections with Jeffrey Epstein (convicted sex offender), who died in 2019.

“I had many dinners with him, you see, hoping that what his words about getting billions in philanthropy to global health through the contacts that he had might come out. Bill stated that it was obvious that the relationship had ended when that became apparent. It was a big mistake to spend time together, to give him credibility. Although there were many others in the same situation, I made a mistake.

He said, “It’s an occasion of reflection, at this point, it’s time to move forward.” “Within our family, we’ll heal as best we can.”

ET reported earlier this month that Bill and Melinda had finalized their divorce three months after announcing their split.

ET obtained court documents that show that neither party will pay the other spousal support as part of the divorce agreement. ET has been provided with ET’s copy of these court documents. According to ET, court docs reveal that Melinda has no plans to change her last name.

Bill and Melinda announced in early May that they decided to end their marriage after 27 years. They were married in January 1994. They have three children together: Phoebe, Phoebe, and Rory (22-years-of-marriage).

The couple released a joint statement saying that they had made the decision to end their marriage after much thought and hard work. “Over the past 27 years, we have had three amazing children and created a foundation that helps all people around the globe lead productive, healthy lives.

The statement said that although we continue to believe in the mission of the foundation and will continue to work together at it, we don’t believe we can continue to grow as a couple in the next phase. As we navigate this new life, we ask for privacy and space for our families.
