Jeffrey Epstein tried to threaten Bill Gates over an alleged affair with a Russian bridge player

An alleged affair between Bill Gates and a Russian bridge player sparked an attempt by Jeffrey Epstein to threaten one of the world’s richest men, according to a report on Sunday.

According to the wall street journal the Microsoft founder and the woman in question first made contact in 2010, when she was in her twenties.

Disgraced financier Epstein therefore met her in 2013 and then paid her to attend software coding school, the report says.

In 2017, Epstein emailed Gates and asked to be reimbursed for the cost of the course, according to people familiar with the matter who spoke with the Log. The report then states:

The email came after the convicted sex offender struggled and failed to convince Gates to participate in a multibillion-dollar charity fund that Epstein tried to establish with JPMorgan Chase.

The implication behind the message, according to people who saw it, was that Epstein could reveal the affair if Gates did not maintain an association between the two men.

A spokeswoman for Gates flatly denied the allegation.

“Mr. Gates met Epstein solely for philanthropic purposes. Having repeatedly failed to lure Mr. Gates beyond these issues, Epstein unsuccessfully attempted to leverage a past relationship to threaten Mr. Gates,” she said.

This is not the first time that the relationship between the two men has been in the spotlight.

As Breitbart News reported, earlier this month details emerged regarding Epstein’s daily schedule and four of the country’s richest men, whom he was due to meet in 2014.

Bill Gates was on the list of scheduled meetings.

Six years before that calendar date of meetings, Epstein pleaded guilty to soliciting and procuring a minor for prostitution and registering as a sex offender.

Therefore, these people would have met Epstein after he became a sex offender.

The wealthy group also reportedly included Thomas Pritzker, Leon Black and Mortimer Zuckerman.

Meanwhile, visitor records would show Epstein visited Bill Clinton’s White House about 17 times, and their first meeting was a month after Clinton’s inauguration in 1993.

“The new revelation comes as Clinton’s ties to Epstein are once again under the microscope thanks to the trial of British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, who faces charges accusing her of recruiting teenage girls for Epstein,” according to a report by Breitbart News published in 2021.

In May 2022, Gates expressed remorse for his relationship with Epstein and said, “I made a mistake meeting Jeffrey Epstein,” as reported by Breitbart New.
