- Melinda is reported to be working on leaving their children more than the R140 million quoted earlier
- The mother of three is said to have named top trust and estate lawyers as her representatives in the divorce filing
- Bill and Melinda share three children; Jennifer, 25, Rory, 21, and Phoebe, 18
Bill Gates ex-wife Melinda is willing to leave their kids more than the R140 million ($10 million) their dad promised to reward them.
According to Page Six, divorce experts have noted a clue in Melinda's divorce filling that shows she's angling at changing their kid's inheritance.
The mother of three is reported to have named top trust and estate lawyers as her representatives in the divorce suit.
According to revered divorce attorneys Harriet Newman Cohen and Martha Cohen, it is unusual for trust and estate lawyers to be named in a divorce.
This only means that Melinda has views for her family that differ from Bill, which would mean she wants to protect her children.
Bill and Melinda share three children; Jennifer, 25, Rory, 21, and Phoebe, 18.
When the news was revealed, many headlines included the word "only", which left thousands of internet users puzzled at how much money could be considered too little or not enough.
According to the Microsoft founder, he believes it is not okay to leave their children too much money, and the rest of their wealth will be going to charity.
During a past Reddit talk, Bill said:
“I definitely think leaving kids massive amounts of money is not a favour to them. Some people disagree with this but Melinda and I feel good about it.”
