Melinda Gates, the ex-wife of Bill Gates, is now in a new relationship with former Fox News correspondent Jon Du Pre, according to TMZ.

Bill and Melinda Gates finalized their divorce in August this year after announcing the couple would separate in May 2021.

It was announced that they will continue to run their Bill and Melinda Gates philanthropic organization together.

TMZ reports, “Melinda has been dating Jon Du Pre for a few months and maybe longer. Du Pre is a former journalist and bills himself as a strategic communications specialist, with 35 years of experience in broadcasting, writing, video production, public speaking and more. He was a TV correspondent for Fox News Channel in the late 90s and early 2000s.

The pair were spotted by TMZ at a basketball game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Boston Celtics in April, and have been seen in public ever since.

It is also reported that Melinda Gates, Jon Du Pre and some family members recently vacationed together.

The Daily Beast reports that Melinda Gates told CBS’ Gayle King earlier in 2022 that she was “dipping her toe” into dating.

The New York Post reports that Du Pre admitted to “verbally abusing” his ex-wife when they were together. He made the confession in his memoirs.

“I got up and ran across the living room to my pregnant wife, and she cowered as I puffed out hot, angry air and launched the worst verbal attack she had ever endured,” he said in the memoir.

“Welcome to the real world, princess, where not everyone is happy. For once, it’s not about you, you spoon-fed, spoiled-rotten [explaeive]. This one is about me. I will find out why my father [expletive] my life, and piss on you for trying to make me feel guilty.
