The fete took place at the $125 million lakefront eco-mansion Melinda once shared with her ex-husband Bill Gates. Their daughter is set to wed fiancé Nayel Nassar.

Jennifer’s celebration comes over a month after her parents finalized their divorce in which they divided their $130 billion wealth, leaving Melinda with $65 billion from the estate.

PROPERTY EVALUATIONS

Reports online revealed the party location was initially for Bill, 65, to keep; therefore, it suggests his former wife still has access to it.

The property, based in Washington, is one of the several luxury mansions owned by the former couple who had homes in other cities across the country, including Wyoming, Florida, and California.
