According to a new report, billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates had secret meetings with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who advised him on his marriage with Melinda Gates, which according to Epstein was a “toxic” relationship.
The meetings, which were more often than originally reported, also centered around Gates’ persistence to convince Epstein to join him with his foundation.
According to the Daily Beast, Epstein gave Gates “advice on ending his marriage with Melinda after the Microsoft co-founder complained about her during a series of meetings at the money manager’s mansion, according to two people familiar with the situation.”
“Gates used the gatherings at Epstein’s $77 million New York townhouse as an escape from what he told Epstein was a “toxic” marriage, a topic both men found humorous, a person who attended the meetings told The Daily Beast.”
“The billionaire met Epstein dozens of times starting in 2011 and continuing through to 2014 mostly at the financier’s Manhattan home—a substantially higher number than has been previously reported,” the report added. “Their conversations took place years before Bill and Melinda Gates announced this month that they were splitting up.”
Gates had “encouraged Epstein to rehabilitate his image in the media following his 2008 guilty plea for soliciting a minor for prostitution, and discussed Epstein becoming involved with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.”
“[It’s] not an overstatement. Going to Jeffrey’s was a respite from his marriage. It was a way of getting away from Melinda,” a source told the outlet, adding that the pair “were very close.”
A Gates spokesperson has responded to the allegations.
“Your characterization of his meetings with Epstein and others about philanthropy is inaccurate, including who participated. Similarly, any claim that Gates spoke of his marriage or Melinda in a disparaging manner is false,” a spokesperson said.
“Bill never received or solicited personal advice of any kind from Epstein— on marriage or anything else. Bill never complained about Melinda or his marriage to Epstein,” they added.
This bombshell new report is supported by another report which alleges Gates “made numerous advances toward women employed at his computer company and his foundation.”
The Daily Wire reports:
Gates and his wife, Melinda, announced their intention to get a divorce earlier this month. Bill Gates’ reported pursuit of other women was one of several behaviors that strained his relationship with his wife to the breaking point, according to The New York Times.
“Multiple people said that during their marriage, Mr. Gates engaged in work-related behavior that they said was inappropriate for a person at the helm of a major publicly traded company and one of the world’s most influential philanthropies,” the Times reported.
