Last year, Melinda and Bill Gates shocked the world when the billionaire couple announced that they were filing for a divorce. After the initial divorce announcement, there were several reports about Bill Gates having an affair with a Microsoft employee and Melinda also stated that Bill’s previous relationship with Epstein also added to the decision to divorce her husband of 27 years.
Well, now in an exclusive interview with Gayle King, Melinda has given more details about her ex-husband’s relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein. In the interview, Melinda described the day Bill brought her to a meeting where Epstein was present.
In her own words, Melinda declared that when she walked into the same room and saw Epstein it was as if she saw “evil personified”. CBS News reported more details regarding Melinda’s comments on Epstein and Bill.
Melinda Gates was asked about how she felt about her former husband’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein and whether that contributed to the decision to divorce. She said she made it clear that she did not like him meeting with Epstein.
“As I said, it’s not one thing, it was many things. But I did not like that he’d had meetings with Jeffrey Epstein, no,” said Melinda Gates.
She, herself, met Epstein one time because she wanted to “see who this man was.”
“I regretted it from the second I stepped in the door. He was abhorrent. 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. My god, I feel terrible for those young women. It was awful,” Melinda Gates said.
She said any further questions about Epstein and Gates’ relationship should be addressed with Gates.
