Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft Corporation and philanthropist, has been making headlines not just for his business acumen and philanthropic endeavors, but also for his personal life. Gates married Melinda French in 1994, and their union has been regarded as one of the most successful and enduring marriages in the business world. The couple, who met at Microsoft, have since built a life together and raised three children, while also establishing the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to improve global health and increase access to technology.
In a moment that sent shockwaves through the global community, Bill and Melinda Gates announced the finalization of their divorce in 2021, leaving fans and followers alike in a state of disbelief. This unexpected turn of events sent ripples through the public consciousness, and left many grappling with the reality that one of the world’s most iconic power couples was no more.
In the wake of his high-profile split, Bill Gates has reportedly moved on and has been in a relationship with the widow of late Oracle co-CEO, Mark Hurd, Paula Hurd, for over a year now
A friend of the rumored couple informed the Daily Mail on Wednesday that “they’re inseparable. “They’ve been together over a year, and she’s always described as a ‘mystery woman,’ but it’s no mystery to their inner circle that they’re in a romantic relationship.”
Paula Hurd, the love interest of Bill Gates, previously married to the late Oracle co-CEO Mark Hurd, who passed away at the young age of 62 after a courageous battle with cancer. Despite her loss, Paula has continued to be a prominent figure in social circles, and it is said that her and Bill initially crossed paths due to their shared love for the sport of tennis.
Just last month, the rumor mill was set ablaze as Bill Gates and Paula Hurd were spotted together at the highly-anticipated Australian Open in Melbourne, Australia, as they watched the Men’s Singles Finals unfold.
