Microsoft founder and billionaire Bill Gates and his wife Melinda Gates recently announced they would be divorcing, saying they could no longer grow together. We thought it was quite a shame to see such a power couple split. Now we’re questioning everything we thought we knew about Bill Gates after a New York Times expose this week alleged he pursued a number of women who worked for him and created an “uncomfortable working environment”.
His conduct at work-related meetings was also questioned after he asked one of his women employees out for dinner. His office denied the allegations of mistreatment of employees. A representative for Bill Gates also confirmed the mogul had an affair with a staffer about 20 years ago. Gates was married to Melinda for 27 years. 🤐 Previous reports noted that Gates also met with convicted sex offender Jeffery Epstein on several occasions, which made Melinda uncomfortable. Bill, a little word of advice: no amount of money makes that kind of behaviour OK.
