My News Ghana reported earlier that Bill Gates and his wife Melinda are divorcing after 27 years of marriage
The 65-year-old Microsoft founder and his 56-year-old wife announced the split on Twitter.
They both posted the same joint statement which read: ‘After a great deal of thought and a lot of work, we have made the decision to end our marriage.
‘Over the last 27 years, 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. We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue to work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.
‘We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life.’
The business platform decided to delist him shortly after news of Gates divorce to his wife of 27 years went viral.
Before being taken off the list, Gates was fourth on the index with a net worth of $145 billion, having gained over $13 billion in 2021 alone.
Compare the old list with the new list.
