Since Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on charges of sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy in July, billionaire Bill Gates has downplayed his relationship with the late financier.
Now, contrary to Gates’ assertion last month that he and Epstein “didn’t have any business relationship or friendship,” The New York Times reports that the two met multiple times beginning in 2011, and at least three times at Epstein’s Manhattan residence.
One meeting included billionaire Eva Andersson-Dubin and her then-teenage daughter. The family has been closely linked to Epstein since Dubin dated Epstein in the 1980s, though they’ve attempted to distance themselves in recent months.
In an email obtained by The Times that Gates sent to colleagues after he met Epstein face-to-face for the first time, he noted that “a very attractive Swedish woman and her daughter dropped by and I ended up staying there quite late.”
Epstein also reportedly met with teams from Gates’ charity, pitching an idea that would involve seed money from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the bank JPMorgan Chase.

New details and documents obtained by The New York Times reveal a much closer connection between Bill Gates and the late Jeffrey Epstein than what the Microsoft founder had previously admitted.

The Times reported that the billionaire met with the disgraced financier at least three times. Epstein also hatched a plan with JPMorgan, which never came to fruition, to use Gates’ foundation money for a charitable fund.

Gates spokeswoman Bridgitt Arnold told Business Insider in a statement that the men met “multiple times” to discuss philanthropy, but they did not socialize or attend parties together. She also said it appears that “Epstein misrepresented the nature of his meetings with Gates while also working to insert himself behind-the-scenes without Gates’s knowledge.”

She did not say say how many times Gates and Epstein met.

“Bill Gates regrets ever meeting with Epstein and recognizes it was an error in judgment to do so,” Arnold said. “Gates recognizes that entertaining Epstein’s ideas related to philanthropy gave Epstein an undeserved platform that was at odds with Gates’ personal values and the values of his foundation.”

She told Business Insider in August that, while Epstein aggressively pursued a relationship with Gates, “any account of a business partnership or personal relationship between the two is categorically false.”
