Bill and Melinda Gates' eldest daughter, Jennifer Gates, has spoken out about her parents' divorce.
"By now, many of you have heard the news that my parents are separating. It's been a challenging stretch of time for our whole family," Jennifer's statement begins. "I'm still learning how to best support my own process and emotions as well as family members at this time, and am grateful for the space to do so. 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," she continued.
