(Liberty Bell) – Unless you’re completely disconnected from social media sites, you’ve heard the news that Bill and Melinda Gates are getting divorced.
We’re all supposed to care very deeply about the personal lives of Bill and Melinda Gates so today we’re reporting to you that their divorce just may be linked to Jeffery Epstein.
Yes, you read that correctly. Since his death, Epstein has shown a remarkable propensity for keeping his memory alive via all manner of scandals.
Now it looks like Epstein may have been one source of contention for the Gates.
According to the Daily Beast, Melinda Gates was not a fan of the infamous sex trafficker and financier, Epstein.
As a matter of fact, she hated him so much that she was “furious” over her husband’s relationship with him.
Bill Gates has vehemently denied having “any business relationship or friendship” with the convicted sex offender. However, Gates and Epstein met up on numerous occasions since meeting in 2011, three years after Epstein admitted to procuring an underage girl for prostitution in Florida.
Friends of the now broken-up Gates have told the Daily Beast about a previously “secret” meeting between Bill, Melinda, and Epstein at Epstein’s Upper East Side apartment in Manhattan in September of 2013.
The meeting supposedly took place on the same day the Gates were awarded the Lasker-Bloomberg Public Service prize for their philanthropic work.
Melinda is reported to have warned her husband about making a connection with the notorious sex trafficker and signaled that she wanted “nothing to do” with Epstein.
In October 2014, Bill Gates made a $2 million donation to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Media Lab and university officials at that time reportedly described this as being “directed” by Epstein.
In 2019, then-spokeswoman for Bill Gates, Bridgitt Arnold, denied this and said there was no specific request for the financial gift “to be controlled” by Epstein.
It’s been reported that many of the proposed charity initiatives discussed between Gates and Epstein never came to fruition and the New York Times even reported that in 2014, Epstein complained that Gates had stopped communicating with him.
Naturally, Arnold insisted that Gates really regretted “ever” meeting with Epstein and has since acknowledged that it “was an error in judgement.”
One tech insider who spoke to the Daily Beast on condition of anonymity, said that lots of people who knew Epstein claimed they were completely unaware of what Epstein really did but in reality they “had a varying spectrum of what they knew and what they didn’t know and how they rationalized it.”
“If you ask Bill Gates, he’ll say, ‘Oh I had absolutely no idea he wasn’t up to anything of the highest moral character.’ But I seriously doubted Epstein’s moral character,” the insider said.
The same source told the Daily Beast that they could understand why Melinda Gates was no fan of Epstein’s.
“He just was an obnoxious guy. He almost made a point of having bad manners, not paying attention at dinner… I could see how anybody, even without suspicions, would not want to be around him.”
Now Bill and Melinda Gates have called it quits after 27 years of marriage. While nobody knows what led to the dissolution of their union, we can only speculate that Bill’s lack of judgement when it came to shady characters might have been a contributing factor.
