Melinda Gates opens up about her divorce and journey to healing

Melinda French Gates is speaking for the first time since her divorce from one of the richest men in the world, Bill Gates.

In an interview with CBS, Melinda opened up about her decision to separate from her difficult journey of healing.

“I had many tears for several days. There are days when I slept on the floor and on the carpet,” she explained.

“It’s part of the mourning process. You mourn the loss of something you thought you had all your life,” she added.

Additionally, Melinda noted that she was well aware of Bill’s relationship, but that was not the only reason for their divorce.

“I thought we had gone through some of that. It is not a special moment or event that happened. It came at a time when it was weakening and I could not believe what we had again, ”she said.

She says she is now on her way to recovery.

“I have started this healing journey and I feel like I am starting to move in the other direction, and I feel like I am opening a page in the next chapter now,” she noted.

Melinda and Gates were married for 27 years before their high-profile divorce in May 2021.

The couple posted similar posts on Twitter announcing the end of their marriage, saying, “After much thought and work on our relationship, we have decided to end our marriage.”
