It looks like Bill Gates, 67, has found a love match with 60-year-old fellow tennis buff Paula Hurd, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
Hurd is the widow of former Oracle co-CEO and president Mark Hurd, who died at the age of 62 in 2019 after a reported battle with cancer.
‘They’re inseparable,’ a friend of the couple tells DailyMail.com.
‘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.’
Her late husband, who spent most of his career at tech company NCR and later Hewlett-Packard before joining Oracle in 2010, had an estimated net worth of $500million at the time of his death.
And it’s no surprise that the paths of the Microsoft founder and Oracle executive -both prominent Silicon Valley figures – and his wife had crossed over the years.
Mark, a former college tennis scholar, and Paula were even pictured behind Gates at a tennis match in California in 2015.
But last month, it was Paula and Bill who were matched together when they were seen watching the Men’s Singles Final together at the Australian Open in Melbourne during a trip Down Under.
The pair also traveled up to Sydney where the billionaire met with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.
