Members of Microsoft’s board expressed they held the urge to eliminate Bill Gates in the board after rumors of an alleged affair with an employee, based on The Daily Wire.
“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 Microsoft spokesman said.
“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.”
“There was an affair almost 20 years ago which ended amicably,” a Gates spokeswoman stated.
“[Gates’] decision to transition off the board was certainly not associated with this matter.”
“In actuality, he’d expressed an interest in spending more time on his philanthropy beginning several years earlier.”
Bill and Melinda joined together and offered a statement regarding their recent announcement of divorce,”After a lot of thought and plenty of work on the relationship, we’ve made the choice to end our marriage.”
“Over the past 27 years, we’ve raised three amazing children and built a base that works all around the world to allow all people to lead healthy, productive lives.”
“We continue to share a belief in that assignment and will continue our work together in the base, but we no longer think we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives”
“We request privacy and space for our family as we start to navigate this new life.”
