Melinda Gates Finally Speaks Out on Her Ex-Husband Bill Gates' Affair

Melinda Gates Finally Speaks Out on Her Ex-Husband Bill Gates' Affair

Melinda Gates, billionaire, philanthropist, and ex-wife to Bill Gates recently interviewed with Gayle King. She opened up about their divorce and Bill's affair.

During her interview with King, Melinda revealed she had reached a breaking point prior to filing for divorce after 27 years of marriage. She also shared how she was feeling after their announcement of the divorce.

Melinda said she thought to herself while lying on the carpet:

"How can this be? How can I get up? How am I going to move forward?"

She added that she was an 'emotional wreck' and shed "a lot of tears for many days."

King then asked Gates about her now ex-husband's affair with a company employee in the year 2000, which was ultimately confirmed by Bill Gates.

Melinda replied that the couple "worked through some of that," but there "came a point in time where there was enough there that I realized it just wasn't healthy, and I couldn't trust what we had."

Melinda then compared dealing with the divorce to grieving a loss, saying,

“You're grieving a loss of something you thought...you had for your lifetime” according to CBS Mornings

She added:

"At the end of the day though, I started on this journey of healing, and I feel like I'm starting to get to the other side. And I do feel like I'm turning a page in the chapter now. I mean, it's 2022, and I'm actually really excited about what's to come and life ahead for me."

The full interview is said to air tomorrow, Thursday, March 3rd, 2022 on CBS Mornings. Check out the preview of the interview down below!
