Since Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on charges of sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy in July, billionaire Bill Gates has downplayed his relationship with the late financier.
Now, contrary to Gates’ assertion last month that he and Epstein “didn’t have any business relationship or friendship,” The New York Times reports that the two met multiple times beginning in 2011, and at least three times at Epstein’s Manhattan residence.
One meeting included billionaire Eva Andersson-Dubin and her then-teenage daughter. The family has been closely linked to Epstein since Dubin dated Epstein in the 1980s, though they’ve attempted to distance themselves in recent months.
In an email obtained by The Times that Gates sent to colleagues after he met Epstein face-to-face for the first time, he noted that “a very attractive Swedish woman and her daughter dropped by and I ended up staying there quite late.”
Epstein also reportedly met with teams from Gates’ charity, pitching an idea that would involve seed money from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the bank JPMorgan Chase.
