Bill and Gates were married in 1994, and in May 2021, after 27 years of marriage, they announced their separation. Melinda Gates is an American philanthropist who Forbes magazine has labeled “one of the most influential women in the world.” Bill and Gates founded Microsoft. She appears to have discovered love once more, though.
Gates has kept her new boyfriend’s identity a secret for a while. TMZ claims that Jon Du Pre and Gates have been dating for at least a year. Du Pre, a former reporter who has 35 years of experience in broadcasting, writing, video production, public speaking, and more, calls himself a strategic communications professional.
Du Pre was a Fox correspondent in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Gates and Du Pre were spotted together at a Nets and Celtics game back in April.
The article also mentioned Gates’ recent vacation to Pelican Hill, a five-star hotel in Newport Beach, with Du Pre and a few family members. Du Pre, who is supposedly in his 60s, and Gates, 58, appear to get along just fine despite the fact that it is unknown how they originally met.
Gates acknowledged in an interview with Otaku Kart that she never envisioned being divorced the same day she got married. But when asked if she would be open to dating in the future, she gave a positive response.
She continued by saying she hoped it will occur for her once more. She claimed that she was only dipping her toe into the water at the time and that she thought it was interesting.
As a result, she was currently keeping her love life a secret, but it was clear that she might be eager to start dating again.
While the precise reason for her divorce from Bill Gates is unknown, it is said that she objected to her ex-business husband’s dealings with billionaire and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. She also went into more detail about her husband’s 20-year relationship with a staff member, which was exposed just before he resigned from the board in 2020.
In relation to that, she declared that she certainly believed in forgiveness. She went on to say that she thought Bill still had a number of other difficulties to deal with.
