Let’s just say that putting your name in the same sentence with a man like Jeffrey Epstein is never a good look. And that’s what Bill Gates is dealing with right now as the Microsoft co-founder is facing scrutiny over his ties to disgraced financier, Jeffrey Epstein.
As a matter of fact, Bill Gates denies ever having late night discussions with Epstein about the state of his marriage to his now estranged wife, Melinda Gates. Here’s what you need to know.
Just like Prince Andrew, Bill Gates is completely denying any association with Jeffrey Epstein, even though it appears as though he might have once considered him to be a good friend. There’s a new report that suggests Jeffrey might have even given Bill Gates advice on how to end his marriage to Melinda Gates.
Bill Gates Denies Discussing His Toxic Marriage With Jeffrey Epstein
Apparently, Bill Gates and Epstein met dozens of times from 2011 to 2014, the report said, with Gates treating the get-togethers as an escape. Most of the gatherings occurred at Epstein’s Upper East Side pad, according to the Daily Beast.
“[It’s] not an overstatement. Going to Jeffrey’s was a respite from his marriage. It was a way of getting away from Melinda,” a source told the outlet.
This shouldn’t surprise anyone, but a spokesperson for Bill Gates denies that the meetings ever happened, even though there is one photo of the Microsoft co-founder with Epstein that has been making the internet rounds for quite some time.
“Bill never received or solicited personal advice of any kind from Epstein — on marriage or anything else. Bill never complained about Melinda or his marriage to Epstein,” the spokesperson said.
The representative added: “Similarly, any claim that Gates spoke of his marriage or Melinda in a disparaging manner is false.”
Bill and Melinda Gates announced their divorce last month after almost three decades of marriage, and rumors about their relationship have been swirling ever since.
“We no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives. We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this next life,” the pair said in a joint statement on Twitter announcing their split.
