Bill Gates’ alleged extramarital affair with a Russian bridge player came to light over the weekend after reports that Jeffrey Epstein had previously threatened to expose the romance.

Gates’ alleged Russian mistress, Mila Antonova, must have been in her 20s when the pair allegedly had an affair.

The billionaire tech titan, respectively, was in his 50s and would still be married to his then-wife Melinda Gates.

Details of the alleged illegitimate couple’s relationship were first revealed to the Wall Street Journal on Sunday.

Antonova, who was born and raised in Russia, is a very successful and well-known bridge player.

She graduated from university in her hometown, where she attended from 2000 to 2005, according to her now-deleted LinkedIn profile.

After relocating to the US, Antonova began working as a software engineer in San Francisco.

She also founded a bridge club sometime after arriving in America.

We know very little about her family or upbringing in Russia.

The billionaire co-founder of Microsoft first crossed paths with the girl in late 2009 at a bridge tournament in Washington, DC.

In a video posted online in 2010, Antonova spoke about meeting Gates at the North American Bridge Championships a year earlier.

“I didn’t hit him, but I tried to kick him with my leg,” she said in the video.

It’s unclear exactly when Gates and Antonova began their alleged relationship or how long it may have lasted.

However, at the time, Gates was married to his wife Melinda, with whom he has three children.

The couple divorced in May 2021 after 27 years of marriage.
