Melinda Gates was recently interviewed by CBS where she was asked about her billionaire ex-husband’s relationship with the deceased Jeffrey Epstein. Melinda commented on the time when she encountered Epstein stating she met him, “exactly one time because I wanted to see who this man was. I regretted it from the second I stepped in the door.” She said Epstein was “abhorrent” and explained, “He was evil personified. I had nightmares about it afterward. So my heart breaks for these young women.”
The interviewer asked, “You know, it was also widely reported that go ahead, friendship or business or some kind of contact with Jeffrey Epstein and that you were not that that was very upsetting to you. Did that play a role in the in the divorce at all in this process?”
“Yeah, as I said, it’s not one thing. It was many things that I did not like that you’d have meetings with Jeffrey Epstein.”
“I made that clear to him. I also met Jeffrey Epstein. Exactly one time. Yes, because I wanted to see who this man was. And I regretted it from the second I stepped in the door. He was he was evil personified. I had nightmares about it afterwards. So you know, my heart breaks for these young women because that’s how I felt and here I’m an older woman. Oh my god, I feel terrible for those young women it was awful.”
“Any of the questions remaining about what Bill some relationship there was? Those are familiar to answer. Okay. But I made it very clear how I felt about them.”
Melinda had made it very clear that Bill Gates’ association with Epstein was a contributing factor to their eventual divorce. What’s interesting is that Melinda indicates Bill may have met with Jeffrey Epstein many times. The Microsoft founder has maintained that he has only had a few dinners with him.
Gates recently gave an interview where he addressed questions regarding his relationship with Epstein. He deflects the questions with very tense, uncomfortable body language.
Gates was asked, “One of the issues that’s dogged you is that of your relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. Do you regret the relationship that you maintained with him against Melinda’s advice and wishes?”
The billionaire responded, “Oh I’ve said that I mean, this is you’re going way back in time. But I will say for the, you know, over the hundredth time, yeah, I shouldn’t have had dinners with him.”
The host continued, “Epstein had a way of sexually compromising people. Is that what Melinda was warning you about?” Gates succinctly responded, “No. I mean, it’s no I had dinner with him. And that’s all. There was never any relationship of any kind.”
Bill adamantly claims he had no significant relationship with Epstein of any sort. However, his ex-wife, whose divorce was in part related to Gates’ interactions with Epstein, seems to think it wasn’t as simple as that. Bill Gates and Jeffrey Epstein connections may be investigated in the future, but only if authorities think it’s necessary.
