Bill Gates’ friendship with Jeffrey Epstein rumoured to be part of reason behind divorce

7 News AU

Bill Gates’ friendship with notorious paedophile Jeffrey Epstein was reportedly part of the reason for his divorce from wife Melinda, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The multi-billionaire couple announced their divorce last week in a joint statement posted on Twitter.

The Wall Street Journal has reported that Gates’ friendship with the disgraced financier and convicted sex offender did not sit well with his wife of 27 years.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Melinda Gates began working with divorce lawyers more than a year ago, with her unease over her husband’s friendship with Epstein dating back as far as 2013.

The Wall Street Journal’s source, a former employee of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, told the publication Melinda Gates was not comfortable with Epstein after meeting him in 2013.

However, her husband continued a relationship with Epstein despite his wife’s concerns.

The New York Times reported in 2019 that Gates and Epstein met up on numerous social occasions and on one occasion the Microsoft billionaire had stayed at Epstein’s New York townhouse.

Gates told The Wall Street Journal in 2019 that he had met Epstein but “didn’t didn’t have any business relationship or friendship with him”.

Microsoft spokeswoman Bridgitt Arnold told The New York Times that their meetings had revolved purely around philanthropy.

“Bill Gates regrets ever meeting with Epstein and recognises it was an error in judgment to do so,” Arnold said in 2019.

Days before Epstein died, he named venture capitalist Boris Nikolic as a backup executor of his will.

Nikolic has worked as a science advisor to Bill Gates.

After Epstein’s death, Nikolic sent an email statement to Bloomberg saying that Epstein had not consulted him about the will and he would not be fulfilling the role of executor.

The Gates’ Twitter statement did not go into specifics about why they were deciding to split.

“Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives,” the statement reads.

“We continue to share a belief in that mission, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.”

Bill and Melinda met at Microsoft and began dating in 1987 following a trade fair in New York.

They married in Hawaii in 1994 after Bill Gates, according to Melinda, weighed the pros and cons on a blackboard.

Together, they have three children; Jennifer, Phoebe and Rory Gates.

  1. this man bitch is lying , she knew full well of the sicko she married,,, shes a sicko too

    all about covering their tracks

    1. Closeted pedaphile and tranny enthusiast. Quite a departure from global tryannist, and commie romper. Underneath that Mr. Rogers sweater is a black lace sweeti pie training bra and matching panties.

      1. Thanks Mark!….

        what a visual


        anyone got some eye bleach ..or mind bleach handy ?

        Makes me wonder if the lid is about to blow off hells kitchen on this whole sick pedo island shit

  2. BS! All of it! The “wife” goes on National TV wearing a clearly visible upside-down cross necklace & we’re expected to believe that Bill’s friendship with Epstein was the cause of a split? LOL! They’re ALL sick f*cks who need to be “helped” the same way we “help” rabid dogs ASAP!

  3. What do Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates divorces have in common? Liquidation of stock options!

    Both are rich, on paper. Their wealth is tied directly into their companies stock prices. If the stock crashes, so does their wealth.

    So how do you cash in massive amounts of your companies stocks without needing to notify shareholders?


    Get divorced.

    Two of the richest people in the world just so happen to be getting divorced in the same 365 days. Literally moments before an economic collapse is scheduled to happen is a little too coincidental for me.

    If you aren’t reading between the lines, they’re selling stock to save their asses.

    Something very large is on the horizon. Be prepared.

    1. Yep, well said GSC! 😉 When I look around I see heaps of new houses & commercial developments being built at breakneck speed all around me but there’s uneasy feeling in the air like a calm before a storm & maybe it’s all for nothing (or for something that we’re not scheduled to be part of!)
