Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has admitted he made “a huge mistake” in spending time with sex offender and disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.
Mr Gates told CNN he had “several dinners” about a philanthropy project that did not emerge, and should not have given him “credibility”.
Epstein hanged himself in jail in 2019 while awaiting a sex-trafficking trial.
Mr Gates also discussed his divorce with Melinda French Gates, calling it “a source of great personal sadness”.
