When Melinda Gates began meeting with divorce lawyers in 2019, two years before she eventually filed, it was due in part to her concern over her husband’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, as reported in October 2019 in The New York Times.
It was a former employee of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation who told the Wall Street Journal that Melinda had worries about Bill’s relationship with Epstein, a convicted sex offender. Those revelations came to light in an article in The New York Times in 2019.
