Melinda Gates is one of the world’s wealthiest women, but she’s no longer available… we’ve learnt the billionaire and ex-wife of Bill Gates has a new boyfriend in her life.
According to those with firsthand knowledge… Melinda has been seeing Jon Du Pre for several months, possibly longer. Du Pre describes himself as a Strategic Communications Specialist with 35 years of experience in radio, writing, video production, public speaking, and other areas. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, he worked as a TV correspondent for Fox News Channel.
Melinda hasn’t been seen in public much since her and Bill’s divorce was finalised in August. Melinda and Jon were spotted together at a Nets-Celtics game in April, so you have to assume they’ve been seeing each other since then.
What’s more … we know Melinda, Jon and some members of their families recently hit Pelican Hill — the 5-star hotel in Newport Beach.
It’s unclear how 58-year-old Melinda and Jon — who is in his 60’s — first met, but nonetheless … they appear to be getting along just fine.
TMZ broke the story — things between Bill and Melinda were nasty leading up to their divorce — including a private island trip Melinda planned for her family to avoid the media onslaught once the divorce became public … a trip Bill was not invited to join.
