Bloomberg yanks Bill Gates off Billionaire list after divorce

Bloomberg has yanked Bill Gates, co-Founder of Microsoft, off its billionaire list.

The highly respected business platform took the action shortly after the news of Gates divorce to his wife of 27 years, went viral.

Bill and Melinda announced their decision to go separate ways on Monday night, seeking privacy.

“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,” they said in a joint statement.

Before he was taken off the list, Gates was on the fourth spot after Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Bernard Arnault.

Financial details of their parting ways are not yet clear but Melinda may take half of her estrange husband’s wealth.

Gates, who has a net worth of $130 billion, owns 1.37% of Microsoft’s outstanding shares, which are worth more than $26 billion.
