WASHINGTON – Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates sent ‘flirtatious and inappropriate’ emails to a female employee at the company in 2007, a report of Wall Street Journal revealed.

Reports in international media said American business magnate and philanthropist was reportedly advised by Microsoft executives to stop flirty communication with a female subordinate.

It was reported that two of the senior executives of the tech firm discovered inappropriate conversation between a mid-level staff member while Gates did not deny these exchanges, saying “they were a bad idea in hindsight and wouldn't happen again”.

However, Gates's spokesperson negated the allegations terming them “false and recycled rumours”.

Meanwhile, the matter was later closed, and no further action was taken because there had not been any physical interaction between the two sides.
