Bill Gates blames himself as he opens up about divorce

Bill Gates blamed himself for “messing up” as he opened up about his messy divorce.

The billionaire spoke last week at the exclusive Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference, widely known as “summer camp for billionaires”, in Sun Valley, Idaho. 

One attendee at the camp said the Microsoft founder was “emotional” and on the verge of tears as he spoke about his divorce.

During an “off the record”  Q&A session that follows Gates’ talk on climate change, asking the billionaire about 

his divorce from Melinda, his wife of 27 years, and the future of the Gates Foundation. 

“He fessed up to messing up,” an attendee said. “He basically referred to the fact that it [the divorce] was his fault.”

Also “He did seem a bit emotional about it,” the attendee added, and also the attendee went further to say he looks he might have been on the verge of tears.

The attendee said Bill Gates did not use the word “affair” when discussing the end of his marriage.

Another attendee described Bill Gates’ confession as “very moving.”

The impression of the attendees was not the same towards Gates’ overall attitude, however, with one guest saying the legendary tech tycoon was appearing “agitated” throughout his stay and brushing off other attendees who tried to come up and talk to him.

“Bill Gates was pretty much a total a–hole,” the attendee said.

In attendance at The “summer camp for billionaires” were some of the most powerful people in sports, technology, and media.
