There has been a lot of speculation around the Bill and Melinda Gates situation as of late because of their divorce announcement. I do wonder what happened in the relationship that led to this, but recently a new development was revealed that has really thrown a spanner in the works.
Shelly Wang is apparently the lady who led to the divorce between Bill and Melinda Gates. Wang is a translator who works for the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation so that is awkward. Wang is 36 years old and did not take the rumors about her seriously and assumed that after a while they would disappear. Apparently not. They have actually gained traction and Wang is now considered the main reason for the breakup.
In my opinion the most interesting thing is obviously the Gates fortune. Bill Gates is currently the world's fourth richest person. He and Melinda do not have a prenup though. Assuming that nothing diabolical happens, the fortune will be split down the middle as well as their assets. Pretty crazy. If I had anywhere near that amount of money I would buy a Lamborghini and then look into more responsible purchases. That is probably why I do not have that much money.
