A former Microsoft engineer is alleging that she had a “sexual relationship over years with Mr. Gates,” according to The , citing sources familiar with the matter.

One Microsoft spokesperson confirmed the company received a letter about the matter in 2019, which said Gates “sought to initiate an intimate relationship with a company employee in the year 2000,” CNN reports.

Microsoft’s Board then hired an outside law firm to conduct a “thorough” investigation, says the spokesperson.

However, Gates resigned before the investigation ended.

Gates’ spokesperson told The Wall Street Journal  that the billionaire’s departure from the company wasn’t because of the relationship.

“There was an affair almost 20 years ago which ended amicably. Bill’s decision to transition off the board was in no way related to this matter. In fact, he had expressed an interest in spending more time on his philanthropy starting several years earlier,” the source said.
