(RoyalPatriot.com )- Bill Gates, the billionaire founder of Microsoft, reportedly told his golfing friends that he was in a “loveless” marriage with his wife Melinda Gates long before the pair announced their divorce on Twitter last month.
A report from the New York Post reveals how Gates opened up to a small group of friends about his relationships, telling them that the marriage had been over for some time and they have long lived completely separate lives.
“Bill did talk to his close friends on the golf course,” a source told the New York Post. “He told them a while back that the marriage was loveless, that it had been over for some time and they were living separate lives.”
However, a conflicting report came from Fox Business, where another source was cited as saying that the phrase “loveless” was ”completely inaccurate from the perspective” of Bill Gates.
65-year-old Bill Gates has long enjoyed his timing golfing and even married his wife at the Manele Bay Hotel golf course in Hawaii back in 1994, but the marriage wasn’t to last…and some reports have claimed that it might have something to do with the tech billionaire’s relationship with dead sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
The New York Post reported on a source who said that Melinda Gates “wants to get an annulment from the Vatican following the civil divorce.”
That sounds pretty serious.
One source told the press how “any friendship with Epstein would have been a bone of contention for Melinda.”
“There is no way that Melinda would have wanted to spend time with Epstein,” the source added.
Nobody really knows what happened in the Gates’ relationship. Bill Gates denies having a close relationship with Epstein, having only met with him to discuss philanthropy. Nonetheless, the Microsoft founder admitted that he regretted the meetings and “recognizes it was an error in judgment to do so.”
