Bill Gates might have chosen to go on with the divorce proceedings, but he’s still giving public appearances with his wedding ring on. Perhaps it’s hard to shake off the habit after years and years of being married for the Microsoft CEO.
Gates was present at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce conference, where he got in front of the camera to say his part. What caught everyone’s attention was how he was still wearing his ring.
It was his first public appearance since the announcement of the split between himself and Melinda Gates. Since most people expected that the tech billionaire and philanthropist is ready to get out of the relationship he deemed as “toxic,” he surprised everyone by keeping the ring on.
A few days ago, Bill Gates was criticized after reports suggested that convicted sex offender Jeffery Epstein gave him marriage advice while he was trying to become involved with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Reports also came forth which claimed that he is also being investigated for an affair he had with a Microsoft employee while he was married to wife Melinda Gates. Bill Gates’ divorce situation keeps getting interesting.[Via]
