‘He Was Evil Personified’: Melinda Says Bill Gates Friendship With Jeffrey Epstein Played Role In Divorce
Melinda Gates, the former wife of billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates, is telling her story – and it does not paint a pretty picture of her ex-husband.
Melinda Gates acknowledged in an interview that her divorce from Bill Gates came about in part because of his relationship with Jeffrey Epsteien: “It was many things. But I did not like that he’d had meetings with Jeffrey Epstein. I made that clear to him,” she told CBS’s Gayle King.
She Met Epstein
Melinda Gates said she does not blame herself for the end of the marriage.
Gates said she met Epstein “exactly one time, because I wanted to see who this man was. And I regretted it from the second I stepped in the door.
“He was abhorrent. He was evil personified. I had nightmares about it afterwards. So my heart breaks for these young women.”
