After 27 years of marriage and raising 3 children together, Bill and Melinda Gates have announced they are getting a divorce.

Apparently, money can’t buy happiness as the hugely successful billionaires released a shock statement this morning stating they “have made the decision to end our marriage.”

Bill Gates posted on Twitter that “over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children…but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.”

They concluded the statement asking for privacy during the challenging time, “We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life.”
