According to the New York Post, Gates was something of a womanizer and was known for throwing pool parties where he’d invite strippers to swim naked for him and his friends, even after he met his future wife, Melinda. Despite this being a relatively open secret, the folks at the New York Times sat on this information but decided to never cover it:
The Microsoft co-founder’s wild lifestyle was well known among his inner circle — but newspapers like the New York Times hid the unflattering reports to continue getting “spoon-fed stories,” James Wallace wrote in the 1997 biography, “Overdrive: Bill Gates and the Race to Control Cyberspace.”.
They “didn’t report on the wild bachelor parties that Microsoft’s boyish chairman would throw in his Seattle home, for which Gates would visit one of Seattle’s all-nude nightclubs and hire dancers to come to his home and swim naked with his friends in his indoor pool,” Wallace wrote.
It was a continuation from his time at Harvard, where he “did like to frequent Boston’s notorious Combat Zone, with its porn shows, strip joints, and prostitutes,” Wallace wrote
This lifestyle continued even after he began dating Melinda.
Bill Gates' relationship with pedophiles was enough to destroy his marriage of 27 years, but not enough to get governments & coronahysteric scientists & intellectuals to stop obeying his orders to lockdown until you take the vaccines he's invested in.https://t.co/ey8SoLhPVj— Saifedean.com (@saifedean) May 10, 2021

The announcement that Bill and Melinda Gates are getting divorced came as a surprise last week, but she has reportedly been talking to lawyers for at least two years—since around the time her husband’s dealings with Jeffrey Epstein made headlines https://t.co/nyvUj2fzqf— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) May 11, 2021

The Gates' divorce is NOT amicable. Apparently, the whole family are on Melinda's side and are 'furious' and 'very angry' at Bill for unspecified things he supposedly did. Melinda has gone into hiding from the press with her family. Sounds like some startling revelations ahead. pic.twitter.com/EWuBfm1fHR— Lynn Brittney (@LynnBrittney2) May 7, 2021
