Bill Gates Faces Sexual Misconduct Claims After Divorce
Bill Gates is currently being accused of a couple of sexual misconduct cases after his divorce to his then-wife, Melinda Gates.
Gates' divorce has put the spotlight on his ties to pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, which allegedly shook his marriage with Melinda, according to a Market Watch report.
Gates was also reported to have developed a reputation for having a misconduct in work-related setting, which is now getting a new look after the divorce of the Gates couple.
Melinda was reported to have been unsatisfied with her husband's handling of a previously undisclosed sexual harassment claim in 2018. The issue involved his long-time money manager, according to The New York Times report.
Melinda said that Gates moved to settle the matter clandestinely while she had insisted on an outside investigation.
People with direct knowledge on the matter said that Gates had pursued women who worked for him at Microsoft and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Sexual Misconduct Claims
Gates had resigned from Microsoft's board of directors after the board hired a law firm to investigate a romantic relationship he had with a Microsoft employee.
Some board members said that it was no longer suitable for Gates to be a director at the software company, according to a CNN report.
The employee was not named in the report.
A spokesperson for Gates had revealed that there was an affair almost 20 years ago, which had ended. The spokesperson said that it was the tech mogul's decision to get off the board.
The spokesperson also added that allegations of mistreatment of employees are also false, and rumors have started becoming absurd.
Six current and former staffers said that the incidents at the time had made the workplace environment uncomfortable.
The employees added that Gates' personal life had become a topic of gossip among employees.
One Microsoft employee was reported to have received an email from Gates, asking her out to dinner.
Gates had reportedly written in an email to the employee that if it makes her uncomfortable, she could pretend it never happened.
Another woman has come out and said that Gates had asked her out to dinner with him during a work trip.
The other woman was working at the time for the Gates' foundation.
The former Gates' foundation employee had reportedly said she was uncomfortable and said that she laughed to avoid answering Gates.
Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Gates
Known sex offender Jeffrey Epstein had allegedly given Gates advice on ending his marriage with Melinda after Gates complained about her during meetings at the money manager's mansion, according to The Daily Beast report.
Gates had met Epstein several times from 2011 to 2014, with their conversations taking place years before the couple had filed for divorce.
The billionaire had also encouraged Epstein to rehabilitate his image in the media after his 2008 guilty plea for soliciting a minor for prostitution.
One of the people who were at the meetings said that Gates' was going to Epstein to respite from his marriage, as well as a way to get away from Melinda.
