As the co-founder of one of the world's largest private foundations, Bill Gates has had his sights set on winning a Nobel Prize — an aspiration he once divulged to Jeffrey Epstein, a source tells PEOPLE.

Though Gates, 65, has denied any substantial ties to Epstein, the insider says their conversations were enough to irk his wife Melinda French Gates, 56, from whom he announced his divorce on May 3.

"It was a business connection and had to do with fundraising," the source says of Bill and Epstein. "There was a legitimate philanthropic side to this, and they had spoken about the Nobel Prize and what they could do to work towards that."

Still, the source adds, "Melinda didn't want him having anything to do with Epstein."

A former employee of the Gates Foundation told the Daily Beast that the prize "is what Bill wants more than anything else in the world."

Spokespersons for both Melinda and Bill did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment, though Gates in 2019 denied having "any business relationship or friendship" with Epstein, a billionaire financier who died by suicide inside a jail cell that August while awaiting trial on federal conspiracy and sex trafficking charges.

‘Mortal Kombat’ & ‘Demon Slayer’ Continue To Duke It Out In Second Weekend Of Box Office

  ‘Mortal Kombat’ & ‘Demon Slayer’ Continue To Duke It Out In Second Weekend Of Box Office SATURDAY AM UPDATE: Though the numbers aren’t as big as their opening weekends, an interesting tale continues at the weekend box office during the pandemic with New Line’s Mortal Kombat and Funimation/Aniplex’s Demon Slayer bound for a photo-finish of $6.1M each in their second weekends. Really, it’s too close to call No. 1 right now. Mortal Kombat had the slight upper hand yesterday with $1.85M, -80%,  and 8-day total of $29.7M at 3,114 locations (+41 from last weekend). The second weekend for the Simon McQuoid-directed pic will be off a steep 74%. Demon Slayer did $1.81M on its way to a second weekend drop of -71% at 1,879 venues (+281).

However, reports have emerged indicating that the two men met multiple times beginning in 2011, and discussed a proposal from Epstein to help raise funds for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which never came to fruition.

A source previously told PEOPLE that Epstein "is definitely a sore spot" for Melinda, and that anything involving Epstein was "major trauma" for the philanthropist.

"She was totally opposed to what she considered shady dealings and some other issues he wanted to pursue in the business area," the source said. "She was not afraid to speak up about it either."

Gates' Epstein connection made headlines once again this week in a New York Times report that claimed that Bill "remarked in Mr. Epstein's presence that he was unhappy in his marriage" at least one time.

Judge to hear evidence on actor Danny Masterson rape charges

  Judge to hear evidence on actor Danny Masterson rape charges LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors on Tuesday are set to begin presenting evidence to a judge as they attempt to show “That '70s Show” actor Danny Masterson should stand trial in the rapes of three women. Masterson, 45, who has pleaded not guilty and has been free on bail since his June arrest, is charged in a Los Angeles County court with three counts of rape by force or fear. At his preliminary hearing scheduled to begin Tuesday morning, prosecutors say they will present evidence that he raped a 23-year-old woman sometime in 2001, a 28-year-old woman in April of 2003, and a 23-year-old woman between October and December of 2003.

The newspaper also reported that Melinda was "unhappy" when the two men's relationship became public knowledge in 2019, and subsequently consulted with divorce lawyers.

In 2019, when the Times reported on the relationship between Epstein and Gates, the Microsoft cofounder's spokeswoman Bridgitt Arnold said that Gates "regretted the relationship with Epstein," and was unaware that a private jet he'd flown on had belonged to Epstein.

Arnold also denied to the outlet that Gates ever socialized or attended parties with Epstein, and said they only ever met to "discuss philanthropy."

A statement shared with PEOPLE on Monday from a Gates spokesperson doubled down on that claim, saying that the newspaper's "characterization of his meetings with Epstein and others about philanthropy is inaccurate, including who participated."

How MCU Actors Landed The Role

  How MCU Actors Landed The Role The order of this list was determined by 0 votes on Ranker.com. Sure, you know your Robert Downeys from your Chris Hemsworths, but do you know how MCU actors were chosen in the first place? The Marvel Cinematic Universe might be the biggest film franchise in the galaxy now, but it wasn't always that way, and the iconic actors who brought the comics to life haven't always been household names.

A source previously told PEOPLE that the Gateses would likely put on a united front because "they were really interested in trying to win a Nobel Prize."

"So one thing that was part of this is, if it gets worse, then it ends that," the insider added. "It seems as if that was on the agenda, and that's for both of them."

Bill and Melinda, who first met while both were working at Microsoft in 1987, announced their split earlier this month after 27 years of marriage.

Melinda said in court documents that her marriage to Bill was "irretrievably broken," and that while they do not have a prenuptial agreement in place, their assets will be divided according to a separation agreement.

The estranged couple shares three children, daughters Jennifer, 25, and Phoebe, 18, and son Rory, 21.
