Oh, how the cards have fallen. There’s a new report that says the man formerly known as everyone’s favorite nerd, Bill Gates, is now being investigated by his own Microsoft board over an alleged affair with an employee.
And no, Melinda Gates has not run off with a random science teacher a la MacKenzie Scott, but that sure enough can happen. Here’s what you need to know.
According to new reports, Microsoft’s board of directors hired a private law firm to investigate a decades-old “intimate relationship” Bill Gates had with a company employee. Who that employee is, we don’t know yet. But the investigation did take place a few months before the billionaire resigned from the board last year.
Bill Gates Is Now Being Investigated By Microsoft Board For Alleged Affair With Employee
“Microsoft received a concern in the latter half of 2019 that Bill Gates sought to initiate an intimate relationship with a company employee in the year 2000,” the company said in a statement.
“A committee of the Board reviewed the concern, aided by an outside law firm, to conduct a thorough investigation. Throughout the investigation, Microsoft provided extensive support to the employee who raised the concern.”
And it looks like an affair did happen, but the details around it just remain sketchy.
A statement from the man who once gave us Microsoft Windows viruses said, “There was an affair almost 20 years ago which ended amicably. Bill’s decision to transition off the board was in no way related to this matter. In fact, he had expressed an interest in spending more time on his philanthropy starting several years earlier.”
Bill and his wife Melinda Gates announced their divorce earlier this month. As many fans know, he is one of the richest people in the world with a net worth of $144 billion.
