With the implosion of Bill and Melinda Gates’s $130 billion marriage, speculation is running rampant that Gates Foundation interpreter Zhe ‘Shelly’ Wang may have played a role in the dissolution of the 27-year relationship. 

Wang, 36, was targeted by Chinese social media sleuths who claim she has been involved in an affair with the 65-year-old Microsoft founder. She has been photographed often with Gates in the capacity of his translator at functions since beginning her freelance position with the foundation in 2015.  

The unmarried Seattle translator simultaneously worked for both the Harvard Business School and the Yale School of Management while interpreting for Gates. Prior to joining the organization, she was employed as a Delta flight attendant and multilingual translator at TED conference events. 

Friends spoke out to defend her after reports of Melinda Gates retreating to a $132,000-a-night private island to avoid media scrutiny added fuel to the rumor mill that Wang was the third party in the marriage.  

“She is a former colleague of mine, a very clean girl, and a person I admire. I don’t believe she would get involved in other people’s marriages,” said friend Li Donglei in a blog post. “I think it is entirely my instinct that Wang Zhe can’t do this kind of thing.”

Internet speculation grew so out of control, Wang took to Chinese social media platform Weibo to deny the accusations on Wednesday.  “I originally thought [the gossip] would be self-defeating from groundless sources, but I didn’t expect it to get more crazy,’ she wrote. “Thank you for your concern over the past 24 hours through private messages, and friends who helped me dispel rumors.”

Our money was stolen long time ago, before they were born. Read the Constitution.

If you are making all that money why don’t you pay for your own advertising instead of interloping into these posts like a thief?

Seeing as how Microsoft is so ubiquitous in defense, government, and business, it’d make sense for the CCP to pace an agent close to Bill.

So this guy who thinks he’s the smartest person in the world is just a pervert. I’m not surprised.

He’s just a man, with his vanity and a lot of money and power. The CCP trains up these beautiful experts at manipulating men. No doubt she is reporting to the CCP..

The elite billionaires is where there is the most perverts. The more money they have the more power they get, and when one gets so much power it warps, twists the brain to insanity. See the best examples of insanity in Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, Joe Biden and family, Bill & Hillary Clinton and family, George Soros and family, Eric Stalwell, Bernie Sanders, Al Sharpton, Bezos, Dorsey, Zuckerberg, Coumo, Lemon, to just name a few. But, you get the picture, they have all made themselves above and exempt from our laws and are using their power to shut us up. They spoon feed us communist lies and if we don’t obey them they persecute us, punish us for having the audacity to think for ourselves.

We should NEVER allow these people to have any kind of power over us. WE made THEM rich from our patronage, WE gave them riches and power from OUR patronage. If we the people do not boycott these radicals who have wielded this power over us, we are fools. Boycotting them is the only voice we have to make them pay attention. They don’t listen to our pleas or to our suffering, the only thing they see is numbers, $$$$$ signs making them richer and more powerful. Turn them off, vote the demonRATs out, but be sure that when you turn them off, don’t EVER look back…. KEEP them off.
