Young, attractive, cunning, full of confidence. Mila Antonova knew all too well who the man in front of her was and still asked his name. "Bill Gates," the Microsoft founder replied with a flirtatious smile in 2010. Later, he posed with her in a photo, a 26-year-old Russian bridge expert whom he had met a year earlier at a card tournament in Washington and with whom he may have had an extramarital affair when he was still married to Melinda Gates. Antonova also had important connections, such as pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who threatened to make the affair public if Gates did not accede to his financial requests.

The extortion case has been exposed by The Wall Street Journal, a thorny issue in which Epstein, the man who committed suicide in prison in 2019 after being convicted of sexual abuse of minors, learned of the relationship between the billionaire and Antonova and tried to exploit it in his favor.

Both Epstein and Gates had coincided on several occasions to discuss philanthropic matters, something that the billionaire now regrets. Epstein asked Microsoft's owner via email to take care of the bill he had previously paid by covering tuition for a software school for Antonova. Despite being an amount that the New York banker himself could have covered more than enough, he insisted that Gates do so under threat of airing his relationship with the Russian. In the background lay the pedophile's resentment at the Microsoft leader's refusal to participate in a multibillion-dollar philanthropic fund through JP Morgan Chase.

It is known that, in addition to being an accomplished specialist in card games, she studied between 2000 and 2005 at a Russian university – according to her LinkedIn profile – that she moved to the United States to work in a software company in San Francisco and that she founded a bridge club already in US territory.

About the 67-year-old billionaire has not wanted to confirm or deny their relationship. She did clarify that she had no idea Epstein was a criminal when she met him in 2013. "I just thought he was a successful entrepreneur and wanted to help," he said. "I'm disgusted with Epstein and what he did."

The only document that exists between Antonova and Gates, who finalized their divorce in August 2021 after 27 years of marriage, is a video in 2010 during the bridge tournament in which the young woman asks the tycoon several questions about her love for cards. However, it is not the first to talk about affair and unethical behavior in relation to the figure of the Seattle entrepreneur when he was in charge of Microsoft and in the foundation he still manages with his ex-wife.

According to sources close to him, Gates was behind several women who worked for him at the foundation. The case of one of them in particular reached the board of directors in 2019. According to a Microsoft spokesman at the time, Frank Shaw, Gates was looking to start an intimate relationship with a Microsoft employee in 2000, which forced him to launch an investigation with a lawyer involved. "That was an affair from 20 years ago that ended amicably," a member of the millionaire's team later confirmed.

Melinda also didn't like her then-husband's relationship with Epstein, three years after he had pleaded guilty to prostitution with an underage girl. It was the tip of the iceberg of what was about to be uncovered years later. Epstein was able to create a pyramid scheme of child abuse that splashed even Prince Andrew of England. A hedge fund manager with a fortune close to $500 million, with properties in Florida, New York, Paris and a private island in the Caribbean, he recruited girls between 13 and 16 years of age for 200 or 300 dollars in exchange for "a simple massage", easy money without asking too much in return, a priori. Once at home, he masturbated in front of them and groped them until he penetrated them and got them to perform oral sex, regardless of their age.

The complaint of a father of one of the girls, a 14-year-old girl in 2005, uncovered part of the plot and caused her to eventually serve a symbolic sentence of 13 months in prison thanks to her network of contacts in the highest spheres of power. Then, in July 2019, he was arrested at the Teterboro airport in New Jersey, with federal charges against him for new indications of sex trafficking of minors from 2002 to 2005, a plot in which employees and acquaintances of the businessman participated. He even had a madame, Ghislaine Maxwell who got the girls. In June last year she was sentenced to 20 years behind bars by a New York court.
