In the late '90s and early 2000s, Du Pre worked as a correspondent for Fox. Back in April, Gates and Du Pre were seen together at a Nets and Celtics game. The publication further stated that Gates, Du Pre and some family members recently visited Pelican Hill, a five-star hotel in Newport Beach. Although it's unknown how Gates, 58, and Du Pre, who is reportedly in his 60s, first met, they seem to be getting along just well.

According to Otaku Kart, Gates admitted during an interview that she never imagined being divorced on the day she was married. However, when questioned if she would be open to dating in the future, she replied in the affirmative. She added that she hoped it happened for her once more. She stated that at this time, she was just putting her toe in the water and found the water to be interesting. Therefore, her love life was currently being kept a secret, but it was obvious that she may be looking forward to getting herself back out there. 

Though the exact cause is unknown, it is reported that one of the major contributing factors of Gates divorce from Bill was her ex-husband's business contacts with financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, which she was against. She also further discussed her husband's 20-year-old affair with a staffer, which came to light just before he resigned from the board in 2020. She stated that she definitely believed in forgiveness in relation to that. She continued by stating that she believed Bill still needed to address a number of other issues.
