Microsoft founder, Bill Gates is reportedly in a romantic relationship with Paula Hurd, the widow of former Oracle co-CEO Mark Hurd, who died in 2019.
The two were spotted in January looking cozy at the Australian Open in Melbourne and sightseeing in Sydney. Bill Gates and Hurd were said to have been longtime tennis fans and have been seen attending the same tournaments over the years.
Recall that the American businessman ended his 27 years marriage two years ago, following a divorce suit filed by his then wife, Melinda.
According to report, the 67-year-old Microsoft co-founder has been dating Paula Hurd, for more than a year.
“It’s widely known that Bill Gates and Paula Hurd are dating, but she hasn’t met his kids yet.”
The duo was photographed together at the Australian Open last month. The alleged couple were seen sitting side-by-side as they watched the game.
Ms Hurd’s husband died at the age of 62 in October 2019 after a long battle with cancer. Hurd had once worked as a tech executive, she currently works as an event planner and philanthropist.
According to report, Paula Hurd and Bill Gates run in the same circles and had crossed paths before Mark’s death because of their love for tennis.
