Last week, the billionaire spoke at the elite Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, branded “summer camp for billionaires.”
The Microsoft founder was “emotional” and on the edge of tears when he spoke about his divorce, according to one camp attendee.
CNBC host Becky Quick asked Gates about his divorce from Melinda, his wife for 27 years, and the future of the Gates Foundation during an “off the record” Q&A session following his address on climate change.
“He fessed up to messing up,” an attendee said. “He basically referred to the fact that it [the divorce] was his fault.”
“He did seem a bit emotional about it,” the attendee added. “He might have been on the verge of tears.”
The attendee said Bill Gates did not use the word “affair” when discussing the end of his marriage.
Another attendee described his confession as “very moving.”
The “summer camp for billionaires” was attended by some of the most powerful people in sports, technology and media.
