Bill Gates is reportedly dating Paula Hurd, the widow of Mark Hurd, the CEO of the software company Oracle, who died in 2019. According to a report by People, the 67-year-old Microsoft co-founder has been in a relationship with Paula Hurd,60, for more than a year.
A source told People, “It’s widely known that Bill Gates and Paula Hurd are dating, but she hasn’t met his kids yet.”
The duo was seen together at the Australian Open last month. The alleged couple was seen watching the game side-by-side.
“They’re inseparable,” a friend of the rumored couple told the news.com.au. “They’ve been together over a year, and she’s always described as a ‘mystery woman’, but it’s no mystery to their inner circle that they’re in a romantic relationship.”
Ms. Hurd’s husband died at the age of 62 in October 2019 after a long battle with cancer. She works as an event planner and philanthropist, and once worked as a tech executive.
Last month, they were photographed at the Men’s Single Final at the Australia Open in Melbourne. They sparked the romance rumor when they were seen walking together around the city, but she was not identified.
