But today, 65-year-old Bill shocked the world with a tweet.

The Microsoft founder said after a great deal of thought and a lot of work, “we have made the decision to end our marriage”.

“We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue to 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”, the statement said.
