Bill and Melinda Gates are officially divorced

Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, and Melinda French Gates have finalized their divorce.

CNN said that the action was made public by a Monday filing with the King County Superior Court in Washington. Melinda French Gates filed a divorce petition in King County, Washington.
Bill and Melinda Gates announced in May that they were terminating their 27-year marriage, stating that “we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next period of our lives.”

However, the couple has stated that they would continue to collaborate at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Meanwhile, the foundation announced last month that a two-year trial phase was planned to evaluate if the couple could continue to work effectively together.

“If either decides after two years that they cannot continue to work together as co-chairs, French Gates will quit her role as co-chair and trustee,” CEO Mark Suzman stated. In the weeks following the divorce announcement, Gates faced questionable workplace behavior claims during his early years at Microsoft.
