As this outlet revealed, the 67-year-old billionaire is dating Paula Hurd, 60, the widower of the late Oracle co-CEO and president Mark Hurd. He died in 2019 after reportedly losing a battle with cancer.

One of Paula's daughters is Kathryn Hurd, an award-winning investigative journalist.

According to Daily Mail, Mark was accused of making "aggressive romantic advances" toward the adult film star-turned-consultant and was forced out as the CEO of tech giant Hewlett-Packard in 2011 after their two-year affair came to light.

Fisher later alleged that Paula's husband had allegedly asked for sexual favors in exchange for giving her contracts. Mark reportedly paid her $1 million to keep quiet.

Despite his scorned history, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison ignored the allegations and hired Mark with a $3 million salary.

"They're inseparable," an insider spilled to Daily Mail. "They've been together over a year and she's always described as a 'mystery woman,' but it's no mystery to their inner circle that they're in a romantic relationship."

According to reports, she has yet to meet Gates' three children.

Paula's investigative journalist spawn isn't the only daughter Gates has to worry about. Her other one, Kelly, allegedly married into a politically connected family with ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton.
