Melinda Gates posts throwback with her kids as she hails Mother ‘Resilience’
The 56-year-old mother of three – Phoebe, 18, Jennifer, 25, and son Rory, 21 – shared an inspiring note and a snapshot of herself with her children when they were younger.
‘Being their mother is a dream come true for me. ‘I hope your Mother’s Day is as special to you as it is to me—a day to honor a mother, remember a memory, or focus on your own strength,’ she tweeted.
Melinda and Bill declared their divorce with two tweets on Monday. According to a source, Melinda started seeking divorce lawyers in October 2019.
She did so at the same time as news broke of her Bill’s relationship with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. There’s no reason to believe Bill did anything wrong.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Melinda declared her marriage ‘irretrievably dissolved’ in 2019 and has been negotiating with lawyers to dissolve it since then.
Bill travelled with Epstein on his private plane from New Jersey to Palm Beach, Florida, in 2013 – four years after Epstein was sentenced to prison for soliciting a minor under the age of 18 for sexual purposes.
Melinda had been concerned about her husband’s relationship with the pedophile, who committed suicide in his New York jail cell in 2019, since 2013, according to the Journal.
Her worries reportedly come to a head several years later: she had been speaking with New York divorce attorney Robert Stephan Cohen as early as October 2019.
The New York Times reported in the same month that Bill had spoken with Epstein many times and had once stayed late at his New York townhouse.
