Filthy Rich: Did Bill Gates know about Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes?
In a recent interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, billionaire Bill Gates disclosed his friendship with the filthy rich and recently deceased Jefferey Epstein, and how his wife Melinda had actually tried to warn Gates of Epstein years ago. “I had several dinners with him, hoping that what he said about getting billions of philanthropy for global health, through contacts that he had, might emerge,” Gates stated.
He continued: “When it looked like that wasn’t a real thing, that relationship ended. But it was a huge mistake to spend time with him, to give him the credibility of being there . . . you know, there were lots of others in that same situation, but I made a mistake.”
Bill Gates and the filthy rich Jefferey Epstein met back in 2011, where the two became good friends over the years. Epstein also reportedly gave Gates advice on how to end his marriage. So, advice aside, why was Bill Gates ashamed for having a personal relationship with the filthy rich Jeffrey Epstein? Here are all the details from his emergence into the world of money to his mysterious death in 2019.
Jeffrey Epstein 101
Born on January 20th, 1953, in Brooklyn, NY, Jeffrey Epstein began his professional career as a teacher before shifting to finance & banking, working for Bear Stearns before eventually establishing a firm of his own.
Epstein had linked himself with multiple famous personalities, rumored to have been friends with the likes of Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Prince Andrew, Tom Barrack, Woody Allen, Bill Barr, Harvey Weinstein, and many others.
In 2019, just before his death, Jeffrey Epstein’s net-worth was estimated to be north of $559 million.
Jeffrey Epstein crimes
Initial developments in the crimes of filthy rich Jeffrey Epstein began sometime in 2005 when a woman claimed Epstein had sexually abused her fourteen-year-old daughter in his mansion. This was the ugly beginning of Epstein’s case, as far as the public was aware of his predatory history.
In 2008, Epstein had plead guilty to procuring the prostitution of a girl who was younger than eighteen years-of-age, which earned Jeffrey Epstein a prison sentence of eighteen months before being released on house arrest after serving only thirteen of the months.
As we know, Jeffrey Epstein notoriously went on to be the center of multiple civil cases & trafficking charges, eventually warranting his arrest on July 6th, 2019, in New Jersey and earning him a jail sentence at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City.
Jeffrey Epstein’s death
On August 10th, 2019, Epstein was found dead in his cell after what was deemed an apparent suicide by hanging.
Rumors have circulated over the years on whether Epstein actually did the deathly deed himself or was murdered, seeing as the two cameras in front of Epstein’s cell were “malfunctioning” that night. To add to suspicion, only three weeks prior Epstein was found unconscious in his cell with neck injuries, claiming that he was attacked by his cellmate before being put on suicide watch.
Oddly enough, many people out there still believe in conspiracies that the filthy rich Jeffrey Epstein is still alive, lurking out there somewhere in the shadows as if he were Lord Voldemort reincarnated. Honestly, we wouldn’t be surprised if this was one day revealed to be the truth, as evil works in mysterious ways. Hopefully Bill Gates knows the right spell to put Epstein to bed once and for all if this is the case!
