Microsoft founder Bill Gates and his wife Melinda Gates say they are getting divorced after 27 years of marriage.
According to the power couple, they decided to take the vital step because they “no longer believe we can grow together as a couple”.
“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” they wrote on Twitter.
