Bill Gates Confirmed Accusation's His Ex-Wife Made
Bill and Melinda Gates announced their divorce in 2021 after 27 years together. Over multiple interviews, Melinda Gates humiliated Bill by leaking details about their troubled relationship and Gates's sketchy relationship with prolific pedophile Jeffery Epstein.
During an interview with “Today” co-anchor Savannah Guthrie Gates confirmed everything his ex-wife told reporters, starting with his affair:
“Were you unfaithful in your marriage? Was that one of the reasons there was the divorce?” Guthrie asked Bill during their conversation, which was mostly to promote the entrepreneur’s new book, “How to Prevent the Next Pandemic.”
“I certainly made mistakes, and I take responsibility,” the 66-year-old replied, as Page Six reported.
“I don’t think delving into the particulars at this point is constructive, but yes, I caused pain, and I feel terrible about that,” he continued.
Just after the Gates separated last year, Bill admitted to having “an affair almost 20 years ago” with a fellow Microsoft employee.
In March Melinda Gates also said that she questioned why he had held meetings with disgraced financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
"I did not like that he had meetings with Jeffrey Epstein, no. I made that clear to him", she told CBS in March.
Asked about the meetings, Mr Gates described talking with Epstein as a "mistake".
"I made a mistake ever meeting with Jeffrey Epstein. You know, maybe her [Melinda's] instincts on that were keener than mine.
"Any meeting I had with him could be viewed as almost condoning his evil behaviour. So, that was a mistake."
"My life is very different. My kids are gone from the house, the last one left for college a year ago. The divorce is very hard. It was a tough year," he says.
Call me heartless, but I find it hard to feel any sympathy for Gates. I'm also not buying that his relationship with Epstein didn't extend beyond Gates pandering for funds. I will say, after spending time reviewing Epstein's flight manifest and did not find Gates on there—Some are only identified by initials so who knows. I just don't see why Gates, one of the world's largest richest men, needed to beg a pedophile for money.
