Melinda Gates Trades Geek For Rugged New Boyfriend

  • One year after Melinda French Gates announced that she and Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates were getting a divorce, she may be taken once again – and her rumored new boyfriend appears to be the complete opposite of her ex-husband.
  • According to TMZ, the computer scientist, 58, has been secretly dating a former Fox News reporter named Jon Du Pre, 68, for months now.
  • Melinda split from her husband of 27 years, Bill, 66, in May 2021, and if she is dating Jon, her new romance couldn’t be more different from her last. Not only does the journalist have severely contrasting looks to her ex – he has a ripped body with a tattooed bicep – but his interests are also polar opposite to Bill’s.
