Melinda Gates met with divorce lawyers in 2019, say people familiar and documents reviewed by WSJ. One concern: her husband's dealings with Jeffrey Epstein.
Melinda Gates had discussions with divorce lawyers in October 2019 around when Bill Gates’s ties to Jeffrey Epstein became public.
Thesplit between Bill and Melinda Gates, announced last week, has been in the works for a long time.Ms. Gates consulted with divorce lawyers roughly two years before she filed for divorce from Mr. Gates, saying their marriage was “irretrievably broken,” according to people familiar with the matter and documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.
The 56-year-old philanthropist has been working with lawyers at several firms since at least 2019 to unwind the marriage of more than 25 years, according to these people and the documents.Last Monday, the billionaire couple announced they were ending their marriage. In a
joint statement posted on Twitter, they said, “we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.”The couple hasn’t said what prompted the split. One source of concern for Ms. Gates was her husband’s dealings with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, according to the people and a former employee of their charity, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Ms. Gates’s concerns about the relationship dated as far back as 2013, the former employee said. headtopics.comRead more: The Wall Street Journal »

Awesome!! Let’s all jump to conclusions because we haven’t learned anything these past several years. I wonder what Epstein did for a multi-billionaire Only thing Gates is sorry about is that he got caught with his hand in the pedo jar. Good acting job for years ... both of them deserve Oscar. hương xinh đẹp mũm mĩm ngực to nhiệt tình cao 1m64 dt i nhà nghỉ 400k anh nào đi đt em nhé em ở nhân chính hà nội
Imagine hypocrisy so blatant ....... so obvious🤣💯😬. Murdoch minions, google before you smear ......🤔? The Democrats are getting rid of the backers who have become a burden on them, Bill Gates and Jeff Bezooz A Marriage License is a License to Steal, If your a Comptroller, And You Misappropriate Funds, You'll get arrested, In a Marriage it's water under the Bridge, I had the Gamut of Evidence, I was Ripped off By my Spouse, She fired her Lawyer, And Didn't Show up for Divorce trial
Its crazy that everyone knows who is guilty - one crowd shouting - melinda, another one bill. You are serious?
Melinda Gates sought to divorce Bill Gates since at least 2019: WSJBusiness Insider tells the global tech, finance, markets, media, healthcare, and strategy stories you want to know. Psh, bet bill gates didn’t buy Siacoin and she realized he had small pp energy. (Not financial advice, just pp advice) God is holy, we must also be holy. Accept Jesus Christ (hope) Holy Spirit ( Righteousnes) Magazin.😊 'Zenginin parası fakirin çenesini yorarmış' çenem yoruldu.😂
One word is enough 'Epsiten' and Exponential Disasters of relationships. QAnon gonna love this.! Nevermind the fact they have 24 and 19 year-old daughters. After every weekend he spent with former girlfriend 😂 And? Are we supposed to care? The people not just for money but because HE or SHE has more issues with mentally illness of understanding in life?
Whelp, guess we know why Microsoft was so gung-ho on Windows Millennial Edition. Lol she just wanted to jump ship before the indictments It really bothers me how little the mainstream media talks about Jeffery Epstein’s ties with powerful people. 👀
Melinda Gates Reportedly Meeting With Divorce Lawyers Since 2019She had repeated conversations with lawyers around the same time as Bill Gates' ties to Jeffrey Epstein became public. He deals with divorce cases too If my husband started hanging out with Jeffery Epstein...after it was reported he was a pedophile...and after I had voiced my concerns about the man years earlier... Our marriage would be history, too. Good luck Ms. Gates.
Oh let’s all tear down BillGates ...can we please tear down RupertMurdoch instead ...oh wait he controls this paper doesn’t he ? Yikes. Epstein was bad. You know it's odd because several times I posted the pictures of Gates with Epstein on both Twitter and Facebook. Each time those posts were flagged by 'fact checkers' Removing them for being 'False information'
Why didn’t Melania Trmp have those similar concerns. Pure garbage No wonder Epstein needed to die ... Ungrateful woman Let the rumors begin 🥁 He couldn’t convince his own wife. I dont even think Hillary cares what Bill does at this point. He has done it all, clearly Their divorce is one of our business, BUT... Bill's philandering may have involved underage girls. THAT matters.
Bill and Melinda Gates have been working on their divorce since 2019, WSJ reportsBill and Melinda Gates have been in the process of getting divorced for two years, according to The Wall Street Journal. It's sad when a couple breaks up. It had to be horrible when it's in the spotlight all the time. I feel for them. They've done a lot of good. A billion here a billionaire there -pretty soon it's real money.
Ooops they have been on this for sometime now. 5 will get you 10 she wanted to get ahead of Ghislaine testimony. I know i would Bill must've discovered something. Under the bus script playing. Lol The wealthy Olympics. Any human interfering with a child should be put in front of a military guard, NO blind-folds, and fucking put on a timer unless all piss don't worry about the shit, that blows out naturally!!!
If she's such a good convent educated Catholic she should be meeting with the Curia in Rome to obtain an annulment. 😂😂😂 Add my naughty Snapchat premium - juicyrebeccca for exclusive content!😈😈😈 Well, at least we now know why Microsoft was so hung ho on Windows Millennial Edition. Hmm so you are telling me the super safe vaccine I need to take that has been pushed by that nice evil billionaire Bill Gates who hung out with Jeffrey Epstein.....too tired to even make sense.
Melinda was complicit till there was divorce talk probably had Epstein on speed dial 🙄
The Separate Worlds of Bill and Melinda GatesBill Gates and Melinda French Gates were stuck at home. When the pandemic hit last March, the couple retreated to their 66,000-square-foot home on the shore of Lake Washington, venturing out infrequently to minimize their potential exposure to the virus. From their home offices they continued running the influential foundation that bears their name, video chatting with world leaders to secure financial commitments for vaccine distribution, and talking about the health of American democracy with their youngest daughter, who was finishing her senior year of high school remotely. For a couple who had spent much of the past three decades traveling the world, so much time together at home was an abrupt change of pace. “Working from home — that was a piece that I think we hadn’t really individually prepared for quite as much,” she told The New York Times in October. Sign up for The Morning newsletter from the New York Times In a November podcast, Bill Gates also spoke about adjusting to life at home after decades on the road. “My life has changed utterly,” he said. “It’s very abnormal.” Now, life has changed in another way, too. The news on Monday that the power couple of global philanthropy would be dissolving their marriage sent shock waves through the field. For those who, unlike the Gateses, had never thought about mRNA vaccines before COVID-19 hit, the pandemic brought home in the clearest way possible just how influential their foundation is in the field of global public health. And the divorce announcement, and subsequent spotlight, has made clear how dependent such an essential organization is on its ultrawealthy founders. Foundation staff members were surprised by the announcement. Bill Gates, 65, and Melinda French Gates, 56, are both hands-on leaders, and much of the power of the foundation lies not just in the billions of dollars they have given it but also in their public standing and connections. But for years the couple had already been building out closely Essential to the pandemic in way more than we know, I'm sure.
Jasetweetz alexeiauld KidNate eugeneSrobinson The Shoes Fit! Oh hey! More news about that guy who was assassinated by the Washington elite in order to cover up their collusion with him regarding his child sex slave island. Yeah no shit. These rich assholes are all into extremely shady, disgusting shit because it takes a special kind of shady, disgusting person to hoard over a billion dollars while people starve, as if he somehow needs billions of dollars.
what. a. shocker bettyaberlin - Add another name to the list... Flat-earther WSJ is on quest to destroy anything to do with BIG TECH, has history of promoting opinions that contradict the scientific consensus on climate change, acid rain, ozone depletion, and health harms of pesticides and asbestos - rings a bell?. RememberJan6
There may be evidence from Epstein trial that could hurt Bill. So they are getting ahead of the train wreck that’s coming...

Liberals mad he got exposed TimJDillon Who'd have thought. The man desperately trying to get everyone to have an untested vaccine pumped into their veigns for a cold also likes to shag kids. If you can't trust a billionaire narcissist who can you trust. 👀👀👀 oh wsj just going for it! So... could the divorce be just to protect assets? Is another bomb about to explode in the Epstein saga? Nothing would be surprising at this point...
There are no good billionaires I really can’t bear the thought.... I’m going w/ it was all about business. Clearly And here come the Qberts, out in force. Melinda Gates is Q Anon?
Knew Billy is disgusting Looks like Gates is falling victim to a classic fallacy: Guilt by Association Apparently, part of their marriage agreement allowed Bill to go on a yearly “coupes retreat” with an ex girlfriend. Not a normal marriage The playbook of billionars divorce strategy: A personal divorce is going to break up Microsoft and the Gates foundation that anti-trust laws can't do for other tech monstrosities?
Those conspiracy theories looking less crazy Republicans everywhere suddenly have a boner Next on SNL, Bill Gates.....
Extreme wealth nearly always ends in debauchery. When people think they are above the law it matters not the laws they break. This is like a QAnon fever dream.. . BillGates Epstein MelindaGates Thislilbirdies1 you might have been on to something! geeezzzzz shaunking 🤷🏾♀️ Epstein's like Lazarus or an unbidden shade, he keeps rising from the legally dead.
My hunch is that chomo Bill Gates is a distraction from coming MASSIVE tax evasion and fraud charges surrounding Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This will make Canada's WE scandal look like small potatoes.
Yes, we remember this article highlighting BillGates TimJDillon I can only think of how many divorces would take place if Jeffrey Epstein little black book is opened. Melinda could be the first. releasethebook Ohhhhhhhhhhh Shit !!!!! It’s abooooot to get crunchy Clickbait, rumor momgering. Didn’t know wsj is now a tabloid.
Bill Gates is a sick man i thought he was just exploiting his workers Isn’t the Canadian court case happening that involves Billy’s $ and covid? He sure gets around doesn’t he? Yikes.
Enough with this bullshit divorce already. Many celebrities and rich ppl did travel to Epstien place. What happen there is unclear or did everyone knew what he was up to? He believed he could get away with it, being on the island without the world finding out. Scary. Who else? Duke of York was busted waving goodbye from the doorway in a bathrobe to a very young female leaving one of the properties. Barr? Cruz? Gaetz?
Didn't Bill Gates fly to Epstein's residence on board Epstein's own private jet, then try to claim later that he didn't even know whose plane he was on? 😂 Gates' life is a good example of the principle 'get your own house in order before you try to change the world.' RutRow... Wow! IndiaWilloughby Jesus christ just because somebody was once associated with a known criminal, dosnt make them a criminal..if they stay associated well that's different, given the nature of Epsteins crimes, 👀
I feel Melinda. Cheating is awful. Men in powerful positions often have issues w loyalty. Happy Mother’s Day Melinda.
She about to spill the tea ☕️ Yea... let's believe an ex wife and her lawyers....lmao He boned epstein, he gay now. That why he divorced. Read carefully Old news. TrueHoop called it Oh. Gee. Wow. Billionaires hanging with other billionaires and doing unsavory things? People playing “your guy/my guy” in the comments with who was the more pedo-y pedo? Everyone sucks and I trust no oneee. 😖
Epstein Epstein FuckingCreeps ...not just Bill and not just Jeffrey
PeopleSearches BillGates Who fucking cares. This is billionaires problems. GatesDivorce Oh just stop. Let these people have a private ending to their marriage. Not everything is for public consumption. TheStalwart Gates deserves full accountability for his relationship with Epstein, which only began AFTER he was arrested and plead guilty to child prostitution. But I’m not naive. Rules don’t apply after you reach a certain level.
A typical hypocrite！ Let them deal with their issues privately, we do not really care. If he is indicted at some point, maybe. At this stage, true or not, it’s gossip. amlivemon Oof 👀 TheStalwart waiting until 2019, post-arrest, to be concerned? 🤔 concerned epstein or maxwell had video? madisongesiotto Wow Jeffey_epstein kind of relationship was that?
Gates to to jail
Là người trầm tính, kín đáo, có học thức, chung tình When a man wants to divorce, he goes to the wife and tells her.When a woman want to divorce she goes to the lawyer, and a month later she tells the man Interesting🤔 Guess Bill should have “Binged” Epstein. Its getting interesting... WTF Bill Gates hanging out with Jeffrey Epstein? Talk about irreconcilable differences and a FULL fault divorce. One of Melinda’s top passions in her philanthropic work is the betterment of woman and girls globally, and her husband was hanging out with a likely predator?
Dealing with Clinton was OK. Et tu Brute? But why would that a concern ? You didn’t seem to think it was a big deal when trump had clear connections to the human trafficker. So why? 🤔
All centi billionaires ensnared looks like? Elongate especially
