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 ...

Bill Gates says Trump should be allowed back on social media ‘at some point’

Billionaire Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates has stated that former U.S. president, Donald Trump should eventually have his social media accounts re-activated. Twitter cut the former president off from some 88 million followers after the deadly riot on Jan. 6, when a group of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol while Congress was certifying President Biden's victory, leaving five people, including a U.S. Capitol Police officer, dead. At the time, Twitter said that Trump's tweets posed "the risk of further incitement of violence." Facebook, Snapchat and Reddit also suspended Trump's online presence indefinitely following the attack. Now Gates says that social media companies should let President Trump back on their platforms, despite his "corrosive" election fraud claims. &...

Elon Musk Overtakes Bill Gates As The 2nd Richest Man In The World

Elon Musk has passed Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to become the world’s second-richest person, only a week after he overtook Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to become the third-richest as Tesla's share price continues to soar. The electric car company's value has risen following the announcement that it would join the S&P 500 index of leading US companies, driving its market value close to $500bn. Mr Musk, 49, is now worth more than $128 billion (£95bn) as he owns 20% of all of the company's shares, which have risen by more than 675% since 25 November last year, when they were valued at $67.27 (£50.33) each. Tesla’s share price is currently valued at $521.49 (£390.20) a share, and if the growth continues, Musk could net a bonus deal worth a record $55.8bn. To trigger the max...

Bill Gates Sr., Father Of Microsoft Co-Founder Dies At 94

Bill Gates Sr., a lawyer and the father of Microsoft’s co-founder, who stepped in when appeals for charity began to overwhelm his billionaire son and started what became the world’s largest philanthropy, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, died on Monday at his beach home on Hood Canal, in the Seattle area. He was 94. The cause was Alzheimer’s disease, his family said in an announcement on Tuesday. In 1994, Mr. Gates was 69 and planning to retire from his prestigious law practice in a few years when, one autumn evening, he and his son, Bill, and his daughter-in-law, Melinda, went to a movie. Standing in the ticket line, Bill told his father that he was being inundated with appeals for charity but that he was far too busy running Microsoft to answer them. His father suggested ...

Coronavirus Fears Cost The World’s 5 Richest People $36bn This Week

The world’s five richest people finished their worst week ever in terms of dollars lost on Friday, hemorrhaging a combined $36.5 billion as the spread of the epidemic punished stocks and stoked worries about a global recession. That’s a sum that dwarfs the market capitalization of any number of US corporate giants, including Ford Motor Co., Clorox and Snap Inc. The week’s biggest loser was Amazon chief Jeff Bezos, who lost $11.7 billion during five blistering days of stock trading, leaving him with a fortune of $116 billion that nevertheless remained the world’s biggest, according to Forbes. Bezos — who earlier this month shelled out $165 million for a Beverly Hills mansion — was seconded by Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, the world’s No. 2 tycoon, who is down $5.7 billion wi...

Boat’s Designer Denies Any Links To Bill Gate’s $645M Hydrogen-powered Super Yacht

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is hoping to hit the seas in the the world’s first hydrogen-powered superyacht, according to the Sunday Telegraph, and it’ll set him back around $645 million. He’s reportedly commissioned a 370-foot Aqua luxury ship designed by Dutch marine architects Sinot. However, Sinot denied in an email to CNET that it had sold the Aqua concept to Gates. The designer “has no business relationship” with the billionaire, it said, adding that reports about the vessel are “incorrect.” The Aqua designs include a pair of 28-ton vacuum-sealed tanks to store liquid hydrogen at minus 420 Fahrenheit. The vessels’ fuel cells will combine hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity, and water will be the only byproduct of the process. If Gates gets one, it will apparently ...
