People Are Sliding Into Bill Gates' DMs After He And Wife Melinda Announce Divorce

The couple released a joint statement on social media and it quickly became a massive news topic.

But people wasted literally no time in trying to slide into the Microsoft co-founder's DMs in the hope of becoming the next Mrs or Mr Gates.

Jesus, give the guy a bit of time.

Users on Twitter have been quote tweeting Bill's statement and offering to date him whenever he's ready and some responses are hilarious.

Bill said he is proud of what he and Melinda have achieved over nearly three decades but admits they can't continue into the next phase of their life as a couple.

In their joint statement to Twitter, the tech billionaire wrote: "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."

They founded the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which states its aims as 'improving people's health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty in developing countries'.

The Foundation has also invested billions of dollars in fighting infectious diseases and getting vaccines to children in need.

The couple met in the late 1980s, when Melinda joined her soon-to-be husband's Microsoft firm, before marrying on 1 January 1994. They have three children.

More recently, Bill has declared his concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, warning that the world needs to be better prepared for future pandemics.

In an interview with Sky News, the billionaire - who correctly predicted the greatest risk of 'global catastrophe' over the next few decades would be a highly infectious virus - said there were lessons that could be learned about how things were handled.
