This has been confirmed from Bill Gates’ social media account, and signed by the couple.

According to the statement, the decision came after a “great deal of thought and work.” But the couple no longer believes they can grow together as a couple in this “next phase” of their lives.

The statement reads ;

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.
