The Wall Street Journal is reporting that former President of Microsoft and co-chair, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation ( BMGF) Bill Gates had sent incriminating and flirtatious emails to a female employee, asking her to meet him outside of work.
InfactNG cannot independently verify if the said meeting ever took place and if it did, the details of it.
Bill Gates stepped down from his position at the Tech giant in 2008 after revelations of an affair with another employee 20 years prior. The situation allegedly led to the divorce between him and his wife of 27 years, Melinda who is also a co-chair of the BMGF.
The WSJ said the Microsoft co-founder was warned over the “inappropriate emails” by the Board and asked to stop them. Bill Gates allegedly admitted to the facts and promised not to do it again.
“Microsoft has nothing to share beyond confirming the accuracy of the WSJ report,” a spokesman for the IT company told AFP on Monday.
Bill Gates, one of the richest men in the world is also one of the greatest philanthropists of our time. He has committed billions of dollars into helping the world’s poorest overcome life threatening situations, promoting primary health care and financial inclusion to the poor.
Gates has also delved into the COVID-19 rescue providing funds and expertise for a vaccine, however, his involvement has been mired in controversy and mistrust as to his real intentions.
