A marriage of decades should be able withstand anything, so when it was announced that famous billionaire couple Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda are heading to divorce(or already have)- the news left the world in shock. Reportedly. Bill allegedly was doing the ultimate no, no in the working environment. Bill who has been known as living a squeaky clean life apparently was living a double- life for years.
The billionaire and former Microsoft founder reportedly made advancement on his subordinates, and it goes that he was successful one time in landing the woman he desired. According to a report based off an internal investigation, it was discovered that Bill had an affair with a company employee, who was a Microsoft engineer employee. Bill was reportedly a board member at Microsoft at the time. As mouths leaked, its said:
“Microsoft received a concern in the latter half of 2019 that Bill Gates sought to initiate an intimate relationship with a company employee in the year 2000. A committee of the Board reviewed the concern, aided by an outside law firm to conduct a thorough investigation. Throughout the investigation, Microsoft provided extensive support to the employee who raised the concern.”
Bill’s representative made sure to takle one inaccuracy being spread about him being kicked as a board member due to his affair with an employee. The representative made it clear in saying:
“decision to transition off the board was in no way related to this matter. In fact, he had expressed an interest in spending more time on his philanthropy starting several years earlier.”
And, in regards to the affair Bill was having with his employee, his representative confirming the affair said this:
“There was an affair almost 20 years ago which ended amicably.”
However it may seem- Bill’s spokesperson is putting it out there that his pending divorce has nothing to do with his affair with the Microsoft engineer employee, which has now ended. Who knew Bill had that kind of stamina.
