Bill Gates' investigated for possible 'intimate relationship' with employee as new report alleges he had affairs with women connected to the company

Possible reasons for Melinda Gates divorce from her billionaire husband, Bill Gates are beginning to come out as new reports allege the Microsoft co-founder engaged in relationships with women connected to the company.

A report in The New York Times on Sunday, May 16, details how Gates allegedly "pursued" several women connected to Microsoft and his foundation, developing "a reputation for questionable conduct in work-related settings," the paper reported.

However, according to the Times, it was Gates' friendship with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein whom Gates allegedly stayed close to even after Epstein was convicted for soliciting sex with girls as young as 14 that annoyed Melinda Gates, reportedly setting in motion the divorce process.

Microsoft's board of directors hired a private law firm to investigate a decades-old "intimate relationship" Bill Gates had with a company employee. The investigation, according to a company spokesman, took place in the months before the billionaire resigned from the board last year.

"Microsoft received a concern in the latter half of 2019 that Bill Gates sought to initiate an intimate relationship with a company employee in the year 2000," a company spokesman told NPR. 

"A committee of the Board reviewed the concern, aided by an outside law firm, to conduct a thorough investigation. Throughout the investigation, Microsoft provided extensive support to the employee who raised the concern."

Another story on Sunday in The Wall Street Journal reported Microsoft's board decided that Gates should step down last year while the prior romantic relationship, that was deemed to be "inappropriate," was still being reviewed
