Kim Kardashian and Bill Gates? Fans are freaking out over the newly single billionaires!
Calabasas, California/Medina, Washington – The internet is buzzing over the recent announcements of Bill Gates' divorce and Kim Kardashian's split from Kanye – and "can't stop won't stop" fawning over the outrageous prospect of the two hooking up.
In a major plot twist, could the two singles actually be seen as a potential match?
While Kardashian is 40 and only a newly minted billionaire, Gates, at 25 years her senior, is the fourth-wealthiest person in the world with an estimated $130 billion.
Fans are already giving wind to the rumor mill. Even TV host Jimmy Kimmel got things swirling on his talk show on Tuesday night.
"You know who I’d like to see Bill Gates date? Kim Kardashian. They’d sell so much lip liner," he joked of the entrepreneurs.
"The likes would be through the roof," he added.
Thousands of comments from Twitter users have been trending that imagined the possible power couple. Some even tagged the two and publically encouraged them to chat.
"Bill Gates and Kim Kardashian have gotta be the two hottest singles on the market right now," one user wrote. "I'm calling it."
A punny few can dream big
Kardashian has already been linked to some famous personalities and been hitting the nightclub scene as an unattached lady. The reality star has apparently been inundated with inquiries hoping to set her up with elite eligible bachelors.
Gates is also already a hot commodity himself. According to the Daily News, an online sports betting company is taking bets on his next girlfriend – with single celebs like Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, and – absurdly – even the UK's recently widowed Queen Elizabeth II in the running.
Although the Microsoft founder has stayed quiet since he hit Twitter with his divorce on Monday, thousands of internet users have been shamelessly sliding into Gates' DMs and sharing their screenshots. The pick-up line puns are hilarious.
"Do you work in tech? Because I can't tech my eyes off you," one wrote.
"Hope you're hanging in there. If you're ever feeling down, remember the only Microsoft thing about you is your company," another offered. "It might improve your Outlook."
"I Excel best at being a shoulder to cry on so you have my Word," a third teased.
The two billionaires might not seem like your typical couple, but internet fans sure can dream.
