No, Bill Gates is not related to Ghislaine Maxwell


The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation says this claim “is false” and has been circulating since March 2021

  • According to several posts on Facebook, billionaire Bill Gates is the cousin of Ghislaine Maxwell, accomplice of Jeffrey Epstein.

    A proof that “powerful elites have been working together for a long time”.

  • Contacted, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation indicates that this assertion "is false" and has been circulating since March 2021.

  • Mary Gates, born Maxwell in 1929 in Seattle in the United States, had no brother or sister.

    The British media magnate Robert Maxwell - and father of Ghislaine Maxwell - is therefore not his brother.

He is again the target of a false assertion.

Billionaire Bill Gates, who had become one of the scapegoats during the Covid-19 pandemic, would be the cousin of Ghislaine Maxwell, according to several posts on Facebook.

Accomplice of Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell was convicted of sex trafficking of minors and appealed last July.

This supposed family link between Ghislaine Maxwell and Bill Gates would be proof that “powerful elites have been working together for a long time” and that they “stick together”.

According to this allegation, the maiden name of Mary Gates, the mother of Bill Gates, is Mary Maxwell.

She would be the “cousin” or the “sister of Robert Maxwell, father of Ghislaine Maxwell”, presented as the “British media owner, former member of Parliament, alleged spy and fraudster”.

“Ghislaine Maxwell and Bill Gates are cousins,” says the posts, whose message is the same copy/pasted.

In addition to this family tie, mention is made of the fortune of Mary Maxwell's father, who was a banker.


Contacted, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation indicates that this assertion "is false" and has been circulating since March 2021. English-language media such as USA Today or Reuters have already verified it.

This supposed relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell was also mentioned about the wife of Anthony Fauci, the White House Covid-19 adviser, of whom she would have been the sister (a false assertion).

If the birth name of Bill Gates' mother is indeed Mary Maxwell, there is no proof of a relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell.

According to the Gates family tree (visible on, Mary Maxwell, born in 1929, had no brothers or sisters.

His father, James Willard Maxwell, was a bank manager in Seattle, Washington, USA.

The 1960 obituary published in the

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

(found here by

USA Today

) confirms that he left behind only one daughter, Mary Gates.

In The

New York Times

or The

Seattle Times

, the obituary of the college professor and businesswoman, who died of cancer in 1994, also does not mention any siblings.

The troubled life of Robert Maxwell

Ghislaine Maxwell is the daughter of controversial media mogul Robert Maxwell.

The turbulent life of this former British parliamentarian has been told in newspapers and books, but contains gray areas.

Son of Slovak Jewish peasants, Robert Maxwell, born in 1923 Jan Ludvik Hoch, fled Czechoslovakia with the Nazi invasion.

He joined the British Army during World War II, where he adopted the name Ian Robert Maxwell.

Almost all of his "immediate family" lost their lives in the Auschwitz concentration camp, reports the New York Times in 1991, the year of the mysterious death of the businessman.

Robert Maxwell is therefore not, in all likelihood, the brother of Mary Maxwell.
