Bill Gates, in love again two years after his divorce from Melinda: who is his new partner

Her name is Paula Hurd and she is well known within the technology industry. The details.

Two years after his divorce from Melinda Gates, with whom he was married for 27 years and had three children, the founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates, has once again found a woman with whom to share his days.

The 67-year-old magnate has begun a romantic relationship with Paula Hurd, a 60-year-old woman and widow of Mark Hurd, former co-director company executive technology Oracle, who died in 2019 at the age of 62, according to the British newspaper Daily Mail.

Paula Hurd inherited a fortune from 500 million dollars after the death of the businessman, who had previously run Hewlett-Packard from 2005 to 2010. Paula and Mark were married 30 years and had two daughters.

The woman is now dedicated to planning and organizing events. And of course, due to her vast heritage, to philanthropy. She had previously worked as a technology executive.

“They are inseparable,” a friend of the couple told the Daily Mail. He added: “They have been together for over a year, and they always describe her as a ‘mystery woman’, but to her inner circle it is no mystery that they are in a romantic relationship”.

According to a source close to People magazine, “it is widely known that Bill Gates and Paula Hurd are dating, but she has not yet met her children.”

One of the hobbies the couple share is their passion for tennis; They have attended the same tournaments for years.

In fact, it was at the Australian Open held in Melbourne last month when they were photographed together while watching the men’s singles final. The couple also used part of their stay there to tour the city of Sydney.

A few days after returning from Australia, Gates gave an interview to the BBC where he stated that he was open to love. Asked if he would like to fall in love again, the billionaire replied: “Sure, I’m not a robot.”

The news of their new relationship comes almost two years after Gates and his ex-wife Melinda French Gates announced they were divorcing after 27 years of marriage.

Their divorce was finalized in August 2021. The ex-marriage shares three children, Jennifer, 26, Rory, 23, and Phoebe, 20. Jennifer is currently expecting her first child with husband Nayel Nassar and “will give birth in any time,” explains the source consulted by People.

“I certainly made mistakes and I take responsibility,” Gates opened up about the cheating rumors that surfaced about his marriage. He added that explaining some things would do neither party any good.

“I don’t think going into the details right now is constructive, but yes, I caused pain and I feel terrible,” he acknowledged.

The former couple signed a separation contract to divide their fortune without revealing the details of the agreement. Since their divorce, Bill and Melinda have been in touch over their work on their charitable foundation, which they created in 2000 and is worth more than $40 billion.

“I think we have a productive working relationship, and I think it will continue,” French Gates said during an interview last year, describing their relationship as “friendly.” “I certainly wish him the best,” she added.

Melinda has also referred on occasion to the end of her marriage to Bill. “I am grieving the loss of something that she thought she would have for life,” she once said.
