Bill and Melinda Gates have announced their divorce after 27 years of marriage, with the ex-CEO of Microsoft taking to Twitter to announce the news.

The now-split couple wrote together, but published on Bill Gates' personal Twitter: "After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, 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 our 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 couple has a net worth of around $130 billion, with Bill Gates having influence not just in the tech sphere but the medical sphere as one of the lead faces of COVID-19 through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This news came out of nowhere, and is sure to send shockwaves over the coming weeks and months.
