After Bill and Melinda Gates announced their split, reports surfaced as to why Melinda Gates filed for divorce. According to news sources, Bill Gates pursued employees while married to Melinda, and threw pool parties with strippers. Gates also met with Jeffrey Epstein on several occasions.
Microsoft founder Bill Gates and his wife announced that they would be getting a divorce after twenty-seven years of marriage. Gates has donated over $50 billion to charities and philanthropic endeavours in the last twenty years, and gave $1.75 billion to fighting COVID-19, most of which went to “crucial medical supplies.”
However, reports have surfaced that Gates was involved in numerous scandals that were not covered by the media.
The Daily Wire reports that a Bill Gates biographer stated that Gates had a “wild lifestyle” but that the New York Times tended to ignore the reports. However, Gates reportedly had pool parties with strippers for his friends, was involved with prostitutes, and frequented the wildest strib clubs in the area. Biographer James Wallace stated that Gates continued the lifestyle after his marriage to Melinda, adding, “He continued to play the field for a while, especially when he was out of town on business, when he would frequently hit on female journalists who covered Microsoft and the company industry.”
Reports have recently surfaced of Gates having asked out women who worked for him, including a relationship with a staffer that resulted in the Microsoft board wanting him to resign. The Hill writes that a woman came forward in 2019 and claimed to have a years-long relationship with Gates.
Wallace stated that Gates’ “womanizing was well known, although not well reported,” and that newspapers would choose to not cover the material so that the “flow of information” would continue from Gates.
According to the New York Post and The Hill, Melinda Gates began the process of divorce from Bill Gates nearly two years ago, after reports surfaced of his connection with Jeffrey Epstein, including flying in Epstein’s jet and attending parties at his house.
“Several members of Microsoft's board of directors believed last year that founder Bill Gates should not sit on the board after it was revealed that he had a sexual relationship with a female employee… The news of Gates's affair comes just days after it was reported that his now-estranged wife met with divorce lawyers as far back as two years ago after reports emerged linking her husband to Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted sex offender and accused sex trafficker who died in federal prison in 2019.” - The Hill, May 16th
