NEWS– Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates and his wife Melinda French Gates, said they are divorcing after 27 years.

‘We no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in the next phase of our lives,’ Bill and Melinda Gates said in a joint statement on their decision to end their marriage.

However, they said they will continue to work together at the massive philanthropic foundation the two built to improve global health, combat climate change and bolster U.S. education.

The Gates family has a net worth approaching $150 billion, and their separation could set records for the largest divorce settlement to date.
