‘I also met Jeffrey Epstein exactly one time… and I regretted it from the second I stepped in the door.’
Melinda Gates claims she sensed “evil” when she met deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
In a CBS Mornings interview Thursday, the former wife of billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates discussed accompanying her husband during a meeting with Epstein, who she says later gave her nightmares.
“I did not like that he had meetings with Jeffrey Epstein,” Gates confessed, adding, “I made that clear to him.”
Gates continued: “I also met Jeffrey Epstein exactly one time. I wanted to see who this man was, and I regretted it from the second I stepped in the door.”
“He was abhorrent, evil personified. I had nightmares about it afterwards. So, you know, my heart breaks for these young women, cause that’s how I felt, and here I’m an older woman. My god I feel terrible for those young women. It was awful… and he was awful.”
Gates did not answer whether her husband continued to meet with Epstein after she’d made her feelings about him known, saying, “Any questions remaining about what Bill’s relationship there was – those are for Bill to answer, but I made it very clear how I felt about him.”
Gates went on to say Bill’s relationship with Epstein was just one of many factors that led to their divorce, including her husband’s alleged multiple affairs.
Following Epstein’s untimely demise behind bars in 2019, Bill Gates has attempted to distance himself from the financier whose private jet he flew on more than five years after he was convicted of child sex crimes.
Epstein’s perverted madam Ghislaine Maxwell faces up to 65 years in prison after being convicted of sex trafficking a minor and other child sex crimes last December. Her sentencing hearing has been set for June 28.
Meanwhile, former Epstein associate Jean-Luc Brunel was found dead in his cell in a French jail last month. Brunel was being investigated for sex trafficking and raping minors.
