Is Bill Gates who he says he is?

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.
