It's official, Bill and Melinda Gates signed off on their divorce on August 2, and now they're two of the wealthiest people on the market. Court documents revealed that neither party will get spousal support, and Melinda will not be changing her last name. According to TMZ, all property is divided pursuant to their "Separation Contract," which is a private document they signed after deciding to split which outlines who gets what.
The announcement that the wealthy pair were to separate after nearly three decades of marriage came as quite a shock. But what isn't so much of a surprise is they aren't the only celebrity couple to part company after age 50. Several well-known names from the worlds of music, cinema, and industry also ended up divorcing in their later years, some after many years of happiness together.
