There are speculations that former world’s richest man, Bill Gates had multiple affairs with women linked with Microsoft and that may be a possible reason for his divorce to his wife of 27 years, Melinda Gates.

A report by New York Times detailed how Bill Gates chased women connected to both Microsoft and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

However the times reported that it was the friendship between convicted child sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Gates that set the chain in motion for their eventual divorce.

Microsoft’s board of directors contracted a private law firm to investigate a more than decades-old “intimate relationship” Bill Gates had with a company employee. The investigation, according to a company spokesman, took place in the months before the billionaire resigned from the board last year.


“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,” a company spokesman told NPR. 


“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.”

Melinda Gates said in a court filing that their 27 year old marriage had irretrievably broken down.
