Bill & Melinda Gates Source Is Spilling All the Tea About What Happened in the Weeks Leading Up to the Split Announcement

There’s some drama behind the scenes with Bill and Melinda Gates, who announced their split after decades of marriage just last week.

The couple – who had been married for 27 years – had already had a separation agreement in place when the news was announced, but now some tea is being spilled.

A source is telling TMZ that the plan to announce the split was actually supposed to go down in March of 2021. At the time, Melinda had rented a private island in Grenada in the Caribbean, costing $132,000 a night, to escape all the media attention.

The plan was to have Melinda, the couple’s adult kids, son Rory, and daughters Phoebe, and Jennifer, and their partners come to the island to avoid media questions. Bill was allegedly not invited on this trip.

The source is adding that there was a “considerable amount of acrimony” with the split and the family all took Melinda‘s side. They all knew about the split at this time, and “they were very angry at Bill, and that’s why he wasn’t invited” to the private island retreat.

The March 2021 split announcement obviously did not happen. The reason why? Their lawyers were still in the middle of hashing out details. Melinda and the family still did go on the trip without Bill.

The source continued, “this was not a friendly split,” and “Melinda and most of the family were furious at Bill for various things they claim he had done.”
