Bloomberg has removed Bill Gates from their billionaire list after announcing that he and Melinda Gates are getting divorced.
The business platform took the action shortly after news of Gates divorce to his wife of 27 years went viral.
Financial details of their divorce are not yet clear but Melinda Gates may take half of her estranged husband’s wealth.
Bill Gates became the youngest American Billionaire in 1987 before he got married, a record he held until Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder came to the billionaire status in 2007. He got married to Melinda in 1994, after already being named the richest man in America. They have three children together.
