Bloomberg delists Bill Gates from billionaire list after divorce

Bill Gates, one of the world’s richest men has been removed from Bloomberg’s billionaire list after news of his divorce from Melinda Gates. 

The business platform took the action shortly after news of Gates divorce to his wife of 27 years went viral.

Before being taken off the list, Gates was fourth on the index with a net worth of $145 billion, having gained over $13 billion in 2021 alone.

Financial details of their parting ways are not yet clear but Melinda may take half of her estrange husband’s wealth.

An unmarried Gates became the youngest American Billionaire in 1987, 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.
