Bill Gates is alleged to have had more meeting with Jeffrey Epstein than he initially claimed. In these meeting with Epstein, Gates was advised by the then convicted sex offender to end his “toxic” marriage to Melinda Gates. It is being reported that Gates also advised Epstein to rehabilitate his public image by working with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
It was previously reported that Bill Gates had met with Jeffrey Epstein a handful of times starting in 2011 through 2014, it is now being reported by those familiar with the meetings that the two had meet dozens of times.
From The Daily Wire:
Gates reportedly “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,” said one source apparently at the meetings, noting that the pair “were very close.”
Gates has denied 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 for the billionaire told The Daily Beast.
The high profile divorce between Bill and Melinda Gates has brought Bill Gates’ relationship with Epstein to the forefront of the national conversation.
