Bill & Melinda Gates DIVORCE - Marriage ‘is irretrievably broken’ and they have NO prenup.

BILL and Melinda Gates are getting divorced - and she could get a multi-billion dollar settlement from the fourth richest man in the world.

The Microsoft co-founder, who is worth a whopping $124billion, posted the news to his official Twitter account on Monday as the Gates empire and fortune now hang in the balance.

Gates said they decided to "end our marriage" after a "great deal of thought and a lot of work" - two years after his wife admitted that marital life was "really hard."

He noted that they had raised "three incredible children" and worked to help people all over the world with their philanthropy work.

"We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives," Gates wrote.

"We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life," he concluded. Melinda tweeted an identical statement to her account.
