Bill Gates was reportedly seen in New York City wearing his wedding ring despite announcing his divorce weeks prior, according to the New York Post.
Bill and Melinda Gates announced that they were getting a divorce in early May on Twitter. However, Gates was spotted leaving a hotel in New York Saturday and was wearing his ring, according to the New York Post.
He was also seen at a restaurant Saturday with a young woman who is likely his daughter Phoebe, 18, the New York Post reported.
This was the first time Bill Gates was seen in public since announcing his divorce. For weeks prior, he had been staying at an exclusive golf club in Indian Wells, California, according to the New York Post.
Gates also joined US Chamber of Commerce CEO Suzanne Clark virtually for an interview Wednesday. Bill Gates can be seen wearing his wedding band in the video, the New York Post reported.
Allegations that Bill Gates made advances on female co-workers at Microsoft and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation surfaced just before his trip to New York, according to the New York Post.
Bill Gates reportedly admitted to having an affair with one of his Microsoft employees 20 years ago. The employee sent a letter to the company’s board in 2019 explaining her relationship with Gates.
She urged the company to hire a law firm to conduct an investigation, according to the New York Post. Bill Gates resigned from the board before the investigation was finished.
Earlier Joy Behar suggested Monday that Bill Gates’ philanthropic contributions trumped any concerns about his personal habits — including ties to the late Jeffrey Epstein.
Behar argued on ABC’s “The View” that she did not have a problem with accusations of adultery and other “personal peccadilloes” because Gates had donated so much money and time to good causes.
“New details have evolved in the details of the divorce of Bill and Melinda Gates,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg began, noting that Bill Gates admitted to having an affair some 20 years ago and that an article accused him of inappropriate behavior in the workplace and hitting on employees.
“You know, this guy saves countries. He saves countries,” Behar protested. “I don’t think his personal peccadilloes had any effect negatively on what he does for the world with his money. I’m a fan of his.”
Behar went on to argue that it was unfair to judge Gates’ personal habits because no one could ever measure up to perfection.
“I mean, this sort of idea that people have to be perfect, besides me, Whoopi, who else do you know that’s perfect? Nobody. Am I right or wrong?” she asked.
Goldberg joked that she was pretty close to perfection, but Behar continued.
“Right. Some of us are more perfect than others. Take FDR for example,” she added. “I happen to know from reading about FDR he had a tootsie on the side. Does that diminish the fact that guy saved the United States from depression? I’m not judging people who commit adultery and still do great things.”
In addition to an affair and inappropriate workplace behavior, Gates reportedly maintained a personal relationship with the late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein despite Epstein’s conviction for soliciting underage girls for sex.
