TMZ reports that Bill Gates transferred nearly $2 billion worth of stocks to Melinda on the day she filed for divorce. If Melinda were to sell the stocks today, she’d be pocketing over $1.8 billion. Melinda filed the divorce docs, and there’s no prenup. They signed a separation agreement ahead of the divorce filing, and the stock transfer indicates they are already down the road in dividing assets. The couple’s oldest daughter Jennifer recently broke her silence on the split on Instagram, “By now, many of you have heard the news that my parents are separating. It’s been a challenging stretch of time for our whole family.” In closing, she wrote, “I won’t personally comment further on anything around the separation, but please know that your kind words and support mean the world to me.”
