It’s been a challenging stretch of time…Bill Gates’ daughter reacts to parents’ divorce


Jennifer Gates, the eldest daughter of Billionaire Bill Gates and estranged wife, Melinda Gates, has reacted to the divorce statement issued by her parents.

Bill and Melinda issued the statement yesterday announcing that their marriage of 27 years is over. They, however, said they would continue to work together on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The estranged couple posted the same joint statement about their divorce on Twitter, 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.”

“I’m still learning how to best support my own process and emotions as well as my family members at this time and am grateful for the space to do so,” she wrote on Instagram.
