The article also provided background to a previously unreported 2019 investigation by Microsoft into Bill’s behavior. 

The board of directors reportedly launched an investigation into whether he “sought to initiate an intimate relationship with a company employee in the year 2000.” In 2020, Bill stepped down from the board of directors.

Sources told The Wall Street Journal about the alleged affair with a female engineer. The employee said she had a sexual relationship with Bill for years. 

Bridgitt Arnold, Bill’s spokesperson, admitted the billionaire had “an affair almost 20 years ago” but said it “ended amicably.” She denied the relationship had anything to do with his decision to leave the board."

She added, “Gates’s decision to transition off the board was in no way related to this matter.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, earlier this month, Melinda filed for divorce from Bill after 27 years of marriage.

The petition filed in Washington court revealed they did not sign a prenuptial agreement before getting hitched. The couple is worth an estimated $128 billion dollars. 

Their assets, which they will have to divide in their divorce, include a compound near Seattle worth $130 million, a notebook used by Leonardo da Vinci, acres of farmland, and billions of dollars. 

Melinda’s decision to pull the plug on their marriage stemmed from her disdain for his relationship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein
