(Page Six) Bill Gates has been hiding from the fallout from his divorce at an ultra-exclusive California golf club for a number of months, according to a source.
An insider said the 65-year-old billionaire Microsoft founder has been holed up at The Vintage Club in Indian Wells, which bills itself as “one of the United States’ most prestigious and ultra-exclusive private country club communities,” a veritable 712-acre oasis of wealth.
A source exclusively told Page Six, “Bill clearly saw this divorce coming for a long time because he’s been there for around three months.”
Bill was this week spotted at The Vintage Club with his 25-year-old daughter Jennifer Gates and her fiancé, Egyptian millionaire Nayel Nassar, according to the Page Six spy.
Gates owns a private home on the property, which also boasts members such as billionaires Charles Koch, Philip Anshultz and Dennis Washington…
Bill signed his divorce papers in Palm Desert, California — where The Vintage Club is based — while Melinda signed her divorce petition in Bellevue, Washington, near the Gates’ $130 million family home and their foundation headquarters.
The Wall Street Journal just reported that Melinda Gates consulted with divorce lawyers for roughly two years before she filed for divorce, saying their marriage of 27 years was “irretrievably broken.”
A source of her concern was reportedly Bill’s previous dealings with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein…
Bridgitt Arnold, a spokeswoman for Gates, said in 2019 that the software mogul and Epstein had met multiple times to discuss philanthropy. “Bill Gates regrets ever meeting with Epstein and recognizes it was an error in judgment to do so,” she said at the time.
