Joking is not funny, Bill Gates ‘faced’ Mark Cuban for more than 20 years

In a recent interview, billionaire Mark Cuban explained why he and Bill Gates haven’t spoken since 1999.

Cuban said that the billionaire Microsoft founder became “the king of technology” after the Windows developer went public in 1986. The two had met once, but Cuban’s joke then made Gates very angry and never spoke again.

Specifically, in a conference, both billionaires were invited to speak. Bill Gates was scheduled to speak first, then when it was his turn, Cuban said: “I was so excited to sell the company, and finally, after all these years, Bill Gates opened the door for me.”.

The joke made Gates angry and the two never spoke to each other again until now. At the time, Cuban had just sold his Internet radio company to Yahoo for $5.7 billion.

Not stopping, Mark Cuban also confirmed that 100% of Bill Gates “cracked” his girlfriends. “I’ve known the girls since before Microsoft listed. Before that, no one knew who Bill Gates was, but after one night he became the ‘king’ of the technology village and took all my girls.”

Billionaire Bill Gates, 66 years old, is one of the richest people in the world with a personal fortune of about 103.2 billion USD. Meanwhile, Cuban’s net worth is “only” about $4.7 billion.

Gates married Melinda French Gates in 1994, before divorcing in 2021. However, this billionaire still runs the same charity with his ex-wife. He also said he would give away most of his wealth and be off the list of the richest people in the world.
