It has now been revealed that billionaire tech entrepreneur Bill Gates flew on Jeffrey Epstein's plane, Lolita Express, four years after the disgraced financier served his jail term for soliciting a minor for sex.
Gates flew with Epstein from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey to Palm Beach on March 1, 2013, as per flight records, the Daily Mail reports.
The pairing is rather odd considering the humanitarian work undertaken by the Bill & Melinda Gates' foundation towards young women around the world.
However, it was not the first time when Gates and Epstein spent time together. Previously, they had met with each other at the annual Edge Dinner event, which welcome billionaires from across the globe to discuss advancements in math, science, and technology and how they are contributing towards the same.
Although the 2013 dinner took place just two nights before the duo flew to Florida together, neither Epstein nor Gates was pictured attending the event.
Epstein at one point had actually claimed that he had worked as a financial adviser to Gates for some time, but a representative for the Microsoft founder later shot down the claim.
That said, both men own property in southern Florida, with Gates having a five-property compound in Wellington worth $40 million and Epstein owning two homes including a $12 million mansion in Palm Beach.
A biography previously published on the website for Edge noted that Epstein "founded the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation in 2000 to fund and support cutting edge science around the world."
The article was later taken down from the website.
Furthermore, he is also said to be "one of the largest supporters of individual scientists, including theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking and Nobel Laureates Gerard ‘t Hooft, David Gross, and Frank Wilczek."
During the 2002 dinner, Epstein traveled with distinguished guests including architect David Rockwell, author Michael Wolff, journalist Richard Cook, and literary agent John Brockman - who was reportedly also the editor of the Edge website.
That said, Gates was not the only famous name to get on board Epstein's infamous plane, as the notorious pedophile also welcomed former POTUS Bill Clinton, famed newsman Walter Cronkite, Naomi Campbell, Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker and Prince Andrew.
The disgraced financier was found dead on Saturday, August 10, after an apparent suicide in the New York jail cell where he was being held without bail on sex-trafficking charges.
