Bill Gates was called out by the New York Times on Sunday alleging that he asked women who worked for him out on dates. He was not successful at shooting his shot in either occasion.

This new report that Gates was trying to pick up subordinates at work comes amid the ongoing divorce with his wife Melinda Gates. Bill has since started to pay Melinda big, moving over $1 billion in stocks to her on the day she filed for divorce.

Gates was described as attention a presentation in 2006 held by a female Microsoft employee. It is alleged that he emailed her directly after the event and asked her to dinner.

Then he allegedly wrote in the email, “If this makes you uncomfortable, pretend it never happened.” She did not respond to his email at all.


Another alleged incident said that Gates went to New York City with a woman that he worked with in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. They were going to a cocktail party and this is where he allegedly made his move. “I want to see you. Will you have dinner with me?” he asked under his breath. She did nothing but laugh to avoid giving an answer.

To his credit, Bill Gates seemed to take no for an answer.
