Billionaires’ Eldest Child, Jennifer,To Inherit Less Than 1% Of Their Wealth by postbox: 5:54am On May 05
Jennifer Gates, a daughter, and eldest child of Bill and Melinda Gates, alongside her two other siblings, are not set to inherit a fortune on their father’s death.
Jennifer has stated that the family has been going through “a challenging stretch of time”.

The statement comes as her parents announced on Monday their separation after a 27-year marriage.

Brand Spur Nigeria recalls that less than two weeks after they (Bill And Melinda) made their last public appearance, virtually, at a COVID event for healthcare workers.

The 65-year-old Microsoft founder and his 56-year-old wife announced the split on Twitter, where they both posted the same joint statement.

Meanwhile, taking to her known Instagram page, Jennifer Gates said, “I’m still learning how to best support my own process and emotions, as well as my family members at this time and I, am grateful for the space to do so.”
Refusing to comment on the divorce, the 25-year-old said, “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.”

“Thank you for understanding our desire for privacy while we navigate the next phases of our lives,” she added.
Bill and Melinda have three children: Jennifer, 25, Rory (male), 21, and Phoebe (female), 18.

Jennifer is a medical student. Having graduated from Stanford University in 2018 with a degree in human biology, she is attending medical school in New York City.
She got engaged to Nayel Nassar, a professional Egyptian equestrian, in January 2020.

She once said of her childhood: “I was born into a huge situation of privilege, and I think it’s about using those opportunities and learning from them to find things that I’m passionate about and hopefully make the world a little bit of a better place.”
Rory is believed to be studying law.

His mother penned an essay about him for Time magazine on his 18th birthday, which read: “Rory is compassionate and curious. He’s intelligent and well-read and deeply informed about the wide range of issues that interest him.

“He’s a great son and a great brother. He’s inherited his parents’ obsessive love of puzzles. But one of the things that makes me proudest is that Rory is a feminist.”

While Phoebe studied at The School of American Ballet as well as the prestigious Juilliard School.

Children Will Only Get “A Minuscule Portion” Of Gates Family Billions
Bill Gates is currently the fourth richest man in the world with a fortune of $124billion. But his children aren’t set to inherit a fortune on his death. In fact, the couple has raised their children in surprisingly modest ways.

The three weren’t allowed phones until they were 14 and help wash the dishes every night.

And they will ‘only’ inherit $10 million each as Bill has made clear his children will only get “a minuscule portion” of his wealth, with the rest going to charity.

What's charity if it doesn't begin at home?
You'd never imagine the length people go for clout.
Just like one champion of giveaway on IG whose siblings are broke.

Also reminds me of one mumu I know who tips all the petrol attendants each time he goes for a fuel refill, he does the same in banks when he withdraws and at malls when he shops, yet he never leaves even 100naira at home for his wife.

But this here, is the biggest case of having efulefu oka-nma-n'ilos as parents.
See the fools sponsoring vaccine costs and other scientific reasearches, donating billions of dollars to charity when there's nothing for their own children. Tufiakwa!!!

God knows if they were my parents, I'd disown them. Isn't it better to be a poor man's child, than to have rich parents and still have the fate of a poor man's child.

In as much as it looks small, we should also not that, that's like Anambra State IGR for 50 years.

And with a 60% down payment with 10 year credit financing, she would be able to afford South-East Nigeria

But their children are not poor brother.

You dont need to keep billions for your children or unborn generations if the system is working for every citizen irrespective of their classs as the case in developed countries.

Do a Google search : bill gates made it clear that his kids will not inherit his properties. That was almost 6 years ago he said that.

Google it.

And don't use your Nigerian mentality to judge American way of life.
