Nayer's win isn't just for himself -- it's for the whole Gates family, whose matriarch and patriarch's divorce made headlines yesterday.

Bill and Melinda's $130 billion divorce was made final on Monday, just three months after the 56-year-old philanthropist filed to end their nearly three-decades-long marriage.

During their nasty divorce war, their children's inheritance money was reportedly a big topic of conversation.

Despite their father being one of the richest men in the world, Bill allegedly was only giving them $10 million each, something that Melinda allegedly did not like.
