The tweet which has nearly 48 thousand likes and 13 thousand retweets in just under an hour, the pair continued their tweet asking for privacy for their family.
“We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives. We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life,” they concluded in the statement.Bill and Melinda Gates
