Media reports revealed that Melinda Gates rented a private island for 132 thousand dollars per night, so that she and her family could avoid media attention after her decision to separate from her husband, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, after 27 years of marriage.
The couple announced their decision to end their marriage on Monday, writing in a joint statement at the time: “After a great deal of thought and a lot of work about our relationship, we made a decision to end our marriage.”
The island spans 80 acres and provides guests with 25 exquisite suites and country houses that can be reached on a five-minute boat ride from Grenada.
On the day they announced their intent to divorce, the Microsoft investment company transferred $ 1.8 billion in shares to Melinda, according to Bloomberg.
Bill Gates, the fourth-richest person in the world, has a net worth of $ 124 billion, according to Forbes.
