Bill Gates had an affair with an employee 20 years ago

A spokesperson to the Microsoft founder, Bill Gates has revealed that the billionaire had an affair at Microsoft almost 20 years ago.⁣

According to Bill Gates’ spokesperson, “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.”

Independent reports that the affair ended “amicably” and is not connected to Bill Gates’ decision to step down from the company’s board.

This comes after Bill Gates and his wife of 27 years, Melinda, announced their divorce in a joint statement issued on the 3rd of May, 2021.

Members of the Microsoft board began an investigation into Gates’ affair after they were informed of a letter sent by a female employee in 2019.⁣

According to The Wall Street Journal, the employee alleged that she and Gates had a sexual relationship over the years.⁣

This allegation reportedly concerned several board members at Microsoft and felt that Gates should step down from leadership roles at Microsoft, pending the outcome of an investigation.
