“I made a mistake in judgement that I thought that those discussions would lead, literally, to billions of dollars going to global health,” he said. "It turned out to be bad judgement.

“And I gave him some benefit by the association. So I made a doubly wrong mistake there.”

The 64-year-old was speaking at the the New York Times Dealbook Conference on Wednesday.

He said he had hoped the meeting with Epstein would help raise money for his fundraising work.

However, he then said: "That was a mirage. None of that money ever appeared."

Gates had told The Wall Street Journal: "There were people around (Epstein) who were saying, hey, if you want to raise money for global health and get more philanthropy, he knows a lot of rich people"'

It has previously been reported Epstein met with the Microsoft founder more than once after serving time in jail for soliciting an underage prostitute.

The alleged discussions happened four years after the millionaire money manager spent 13 months behind bars, reports the New York Post.

There is absolutely no suggestion Gates was involved in any of Epstein's sordid behaviour.

It was laterreported flight records show Gates flew with Epstein from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey to Palm Beach on March 1, 2013.

The flight was said to have been on Epstein's luxury Boeing 727 - dubbed the Lolita Express because it's been claimed it was used as a mid-air sex lair.

The jet's detailed sale prospectus, as seen by The Sun Online, describes the 29-passenger interior as "tailored to enhance the experience during long range travel".

Exactly what happened on the flights where Epstein courted his famous friends and underage girls alike, remains a closely guarded secret.

However, recently resurfaced accounts detail wild orgies and padded floors purposely designed for sex mid-flight.

Esptein killed himself in his New York prison cell while awaiting sex trafficking charges - but some are convinced he may have been murdered.
