Jeffrey Epstein attempted to blackmail Bill Gates by threatening to expose an alleged affair he had in 2010 with a Russian bridge player in her early 20s, according to a shocking new report from the Wall Street Journal.
The Wall Street Journal reports that notorious pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead in a jail cell in 2019, asked Bill Gates to participate in a multibillion-dollar charitable fund in 2017 and reportedly threatened to expose the Microsoft billionaire's infidelity if he declined.
In 2010, Gates allegedly entered into an affair with a woman named Mila Antonova after meeting her at a bridge tournament. Antonova was in her early 20's at the time of the affair, according to the outlet. Gates was married to his ex-wife Melinda Gates at the time.
In 2013, Antonova met Epstein when she was trying to raise funds for a business venture that included an online bridge platform. Esptein did not fund this project but paid for Antonova to attend a software coding school, WSJ reports.
