Bill Gates admits meeting disgraced Jeffery Epstein and having dinner with him. Bill Gates said he regrets it, but insists it was just that one time. Bill seems like he tried to downplay it as nothing, despite all the horrendous things Epstein was charged with. Melinda Gates previously suggested that the relationship between Bill and Jeffrey could have contributed to her divorce from Bill, despite what Bill says in this news interview.
As previously reported, there were a number of factors that led to Melinda French Gates’s decision to divorce her husband of 27 years, Bill Gates, as she said, which includes his work with the late disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. In a new interview with Gayle King that aired recently on ‘CBS This Morning,’ the philanthropist addressed their divorce publicly for the first time, and she explained that it was “not one thing but many things” that led to the demise of their marriage. “I did not like that he had meetings with Jeffrey Epstein, no. I made that clear to him,” Melinda explained.
She met with the convicted trafficker “exactly one time,” she added, because she “wanted to see who this man was.” “I regretted it the second I walked in the door. He was abhorrent. He was evil personified. My heart breaks for these women,” said Melinda.
On the other side, Bill said in a statement to CBS that “Meeting with Epstein was a mistake that I regret deeply. It was a substantial error in judgment.” Melinda’s ex-husband had an affair with a staffer 20 years ago, which a spokesperson for the Microsoft co-founder confirmed in May 2021, and she also spoke openly on that topic, reported Vanity Fair.
“I certainly believe in forgiveness, so I thought we had worked through some of that,” confessed Melinda. “It wasn’t one moment or one specific thing that happened. There just came a point in time where there was enough there where I realized it just wasn’t healthy, and I couldn’t trust what we had,” she added.
