A previously unseen photo of Bill Gates has emerged that shows the Microsoft co-founder posing with one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims.
The image was revealed in a report by the Wall Street Journal.
The WSJ has unearthed disturbing details about deceased sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s continued exploitation and abuse of women and children.
The abuse persisted unabated until his arrest in 2019, despite his previous conviction for child sex crimes.
Despite the claimed beliefs of his high-profile associates, Epstein’s predatory behavior did not cease after he was jailed in 2008.
Epstein was exploiting his vast network of influential connections.
The convicted pedophile promised numerous young women and underage girls career opportunities.
Those “opportunities” included roles in Woody Allen films, positions at the United Nations, and modeling contracts with Victoria’s Secret.
One notable case involves a Polish model who was lured in 2014 with promises of career advancement.
The victim, whose identity remains anonymous for legal reasons, was promised a role with the Gates Foundation.
The newly released image captures Gates in a seemingly casual pose alongside a young Polish model.
The model is identified as a victim of Epstein.
According to the WSJ, the photo was reportedly taken at Gates’s Seattle office in March 2014, years after Esptein’s well-publicized conviction for pedophilia.
The report states that the Polish victim met Epstein before the snapshot was taken.
She soon found herself entangled in a series of promises concerning career advancement through Epstein’s powerful connections.
This modus operandi aligns with other victims’ accounts of Epstein’s grooming strategies.
Photographs with influential figures were often used to lend credibility to his claims and further ensnare his victims.
The most famous example is Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s photo with Britain’s Prine Andrew.
The Polish model alleges that her abuse at the hands of Epstein and his associates lasted for a period of approximately eight months.
During this time, she says she encountered a world of manipulation and deceit.
She was taken to academic conferences, Epstein’s private “Pedophile Island,” and photographed with prominent figures like Woody Allen and former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak.
Both Allen and Barak have denied knowledge of Epstein’s criminal activities, despite the international media coverage of his child sex crimes conviction.
However, the model says Epstein’s true intentions emerged as his false promises failed to materialize.
Epstein subjected the model to sexual exploitation and pressured her to alter her lifestyle, she recalls.
He eventually suggested she become a mistress for one of his powerful friends, whose name she didn’t reveal.
But she says she recognized this proposal as a trap.
Her attempts to sever ties with Epstein were met with intimidation and threats to her career, she says.
Unfortunately, this story is not isolated.
Epstein’s private calendars, managed by his executive assistant Lesley Groff, reveal hundreds of appointments with young women and girls.
These appointments were easy to identify as they were often referred to only by first names and phone numbers.
These meetings were sandwiched between Epstein’s engagements with powerful corporate and political elites.
The Polish model’s entry into Epstein’s orbit began with an introduction to Ramsey Elkholy.
Elkholy presented himself as a modeling scout with connections to Harvard University.
What she didn’t realize at the time, however, was that Elkholy was funneling attractive young women to Epstein.
During a recent interview, Elkholy claimed ignorance of the full extent of Epstein’s predatory behavior.
This stance was echoed by his lawyer, Bruce Rosen.
Wall Street Journal reported:
In the years after the Polish model left, the schedules show Epstein continued having appointments with aspiring models.
In 2015 alone, the schedules show more than 60 appointments with young women.
Several of the women told the Journal that they didn’t report Epstein because they feared deportation or consequences for their careers because of his connections.
Some said they blamed themselves for not being good enough to get the jobs they thought Epstein was pursuing for them.
After the Miami Herald reported that dozens of women said they were abused by Epstein, calling into question the leniency of his 2008 plea deal, prosecutors charged Epstein in July 2019 and indicted him on federal charges of sex-trafficking underage girls from 2002 to 2005.
That August, he died in jail in what the New York City medical examiner ruled a suicide.
In late 2022, Edwards and Henderson filed class-action lawsuits on behalf of the women, accusing JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank of enabling sex trafficking by Epstein.
In settlements with the banks, more than 200 accusers who said they were abused from the 1990s to 2019 are eligible to receive compensation—a process that requires them to provide emails, photos and other material to support their stories.
In 2017, long after the Polish model last communicated with Epstein, Elkholy reached out to her on Facebook.
“Jeffrey is always asking about u, he thinks we are friends, lol,” Elkholy wrote in a message.
“Why don’t you email him?”
Elkholy doesn’t recall the exchange, his lawyer said.
Bill Gates and his team have responded to the emergence of the photo in the WSJ by denying knowledge of the interactions.
A spokesperson for Gates told the WSJ that Gates did not meet with the model during her visit to his offices, despite the photo evidence.
The Polish victim says she is now married with a family and employed at a prominent financial services company.
She revealed that she strives to put that chapter of her life behind her.
“He abused me for so long that I don’t understand myself and how I let this happen,” she told the WSJ.
“I’m never going to get rid of those thoughts.”
The Polish model was also photographed with other prominent Epstein-linked individuals such as pedophile Woody Allen and former CBS News journalist Charlie Rose.
Jeffrey Epstein Never Stopped Abusing Women—and His VIP Circle Helped Make It Possible

This is not the first time allegations have been made about Gates related to Epstein-linked young women, however.
Earlier this year, new information emerged suggesting that Epstein used his knowledge of an extramarital affair between Gates and a Russian bridge player who was 30 years his junior.
As Slay News reported at the time, Epstein allegedly used the information to intimidate and bribe Gates.
According to sources familiar with the matter, after discovering the affair, Epstein approached Gates with the proposal to contribute to a multibillion-dollar charitable fund in 2017.
Epstein allegedly threatened to expose the extramarital affair with Mila Antonova unless Gates agreed to the proposal.

Wall Street Journal reported in May:
The Microsoft co-founder met the woman around 2010, when she was in her 20s.
Epstein met her in 2013 and later paid for her to attend software coding school.
In 2017, Epstein emailed Gates and asked to be reimbursed for the cost of the course, according to the people familiar with the matter.
The email came after the convicted sex offender had struggled and failed to convince Gates to participate in a multibillion-dollar charitable fund that Epstein tried to establish with JPMorgan Chase.
The implication behind the message, according to people who have viewed it, was that Epstein could reveal the affair if Gates didn’t keep up an association between the two men.
“Mr. Gates met with Epstein solely for philanthropic purposes. Having failed repeatedly to draw Mr. Gates beyond these matters, Epstein tried unsuccessfully to leverage a past relationship to threaten Mr. Gates,” said a spokeswoman for Gates.
The Daily Mail reported on “a potentially disturbing and unexplained link between Gates’ erstwhile Russian ‘lover’ [Antonova] and Kremlin spook Chapman.”
The report revealed that Antonova is tied to the notorious Russian spy Anna Chapman.
While Bill Gates’s affair with Antonova is a private subject, the Mail notes that “a relationship between […] one of the most influential businessmen on the planet, and a woman who appears to have connections to a Kremlin intelligence agent is troubling.”
Especially so in the context of his relationship with Epstein, famous for “providing” young women to the rich and powerful, and himself someone with deep ties to the intelligence community.
It’s relevant that Gates’s affair with young Antonova was taking place at the same time that Chapman was operating her long-term, deep-cover assignment inside the U.S.
Meanwhile, Gates’s ex-wife Melinda specifically cited her former husband’s relationship with Epstein as an issue that destroyed their marriage.
Melinda Gates revealed that she told her ex-husband she was having “nightmares” about Epstein.
She said she warned Bill Gates that Epstein was “evil personified.”
After Bill repeatedly met with Epstein, Melinda demanded her husband introduce her to the billionaire hedge fund manager in 2011.
“I did not like that he had meetings with Jeffery Epstein,” Melinda Gates told CBS Mornings host Gayle King.
“I made that clear to him,” she continued.
“I also met Jeffery Epstein exactly one time.
“I wanted to see who this man was and I regretted it from the second I stepped in the door.
“He was abhorrent, evil personified,” Melinda said.
“I had nightmares about it afterward.
“That’s why my heart breaks for these young women.
“That’s how I felt, and I am an older woman. He was awful.”
Bill’s decision to continue his friendship with Epstein is one of the main issues that ended their 27-year marriage, Melinda claimed.
Earlier this year, Sarah Ferguson from ABC Australia unexpectedly confronted Bill Gates about his ties to Epstein during a live television interview, as Slay News reported.
Gates thought he was on the show to promote his climate agenda when the host suddenly turned the tables on him.
Ferguson cornered Gates by asking him if he regretted the relationship that he “maintained” with Epstein “against Melinda’s advice and wishes.”
“You’re going way back in time, but yeah, I will say it for the over 100th time, yeah, I shouldn’t have had dinners with him,” Gates said.
“Epstein had a way of sexually compromising people,” Ferguson responded.
“Is that what Melinda was warning you about?”
“No, I mean it’s…(pause),” Gates said as he squirmed in his seat.
“No, I had dinner with him, and that’s all.”
He also dismissed any ties between the Gates Foundation and Epstein.
“[And that you regret] the relationship between the foundation and Epstein?” asked Ferguson.
“There never was any relationship of any kind,” Gates responded.
