During the interview, he was asked about the stories that related the news of his divorce to his meetings with Jeffrey Epstein.

“It was a huge mistake to spend time with him, to give him the credibility of being there,” he said.

“I had several dinners with him, you know, hoping that what he said about getting billions of philanthropy for global health through contacts that he had might emerge. When it looked like that wasn’t a real thing, that relationship ended,” he continued.

He also spoke about his divorce from Melinda Gates, and bullying accusations at Microsoft.

“It’s a time of reflection, and at this point, I need to go forward. Within the family, we’ll heal the best that we can and learn from what’s happened,” he said, adding that he hoped he and his ex can work together on their foundation.

“That would definitely be the best thing for the foundation. Melinda has incredible strengths that she brings that help the foundation be better.”

The two officially divorced this week amid months of reported drama.
