Bill and Melinda Gates are each officially a very eligible bachelor and bachelorette … because their bitter divorce is now a done deal.
Court records confirm the judge signed off on their divorce Monday … talk about a way to start your week.
As we reported … Melinda filed for divorce back in May after 27 years of marriage, and there was no prenup. Bill’s net worth is estimated at more than $130 billion, so the divorce settlement could leave Melinda over $65 billion.
Melinda’s been cashing in on the split for months … remember, Bill lined her pockets with nearly $2 billion in stocks the day she filed divorce docs, and the following day, he hooked her up with 25 million shares of Mexican Coca-Cola.
The judge’s signature ties a bow on an acrimonious divorce. As we reported, Bill’s family was extremely upset with him earlier this year, when everyone BUT Bill went to a private island when they thought news of the divorce would be made public.
We’re told the family is upset over allegations he was coming on to different women … some of whom worked at his company.
