‘It’s A Huge Mistake Leaving Melinda’ — Bill Gates Finally Speaks On Divorce


Bill Gates, billionaire businessman and co-founder of Microsoft, says he made a huge mistake associating with Jeffrey Epstein, a disgraced American financier, and convicted sex offender.

Speaking about Epstein, Gates said: “I had several dinners with him, hoping that what he said about getting billions of philanthropy for global health through contacts that he had might emerge.

“When it looked like that wasn’t a real thing, that relationship ended. But it was a huge mistake to spend time with him, to give him credibility. There were lots of others in the same situation, but I made a mistake.”

In July, the foundation released a statement claiming that the duo will work together at the Gates Foundation.
