Business Insider reached out to Gates for comment, and was told by a Gates spokesman, “These claims are false, recycled rumors from sources who have no direct knowledge, and in some cases have significant conflicts of interest.”

Per the Wall Street Journal‘s reporting:

After Bill and Melinda French Gates announced they were divorcing, multiple outlets reported the Microsoft founder engaged in inappropriate behavior with female employees.

Microsoft’s board hired a law firm in 2019 to investigate if Gates had an affair with a female engineer in 2000.

Gates met with sexual predator  on multiple occasions.

Gates stepped down from the boards of Microsoft and Berkshire Hathaway in 2020.
