Bill Gates appears at the ‘billionaire summer camp’ he takes Melinda with his new girlfriend.
The Microsoft founder was spotted with Paula Hurd at the Sun Valley Conference in Idaho on Wednesday.
The software mogul walked across campus with a file under his arm that contained Mark Zuckerberg’s name.
Later in the evening she was seen enjoying a meal with him and two friends as they looked at pictures from the day.
It comes five months after Newstimesuk.com exclusively revealed Gates, 67, and Heard, 60, were dating after they appeared together at the Australian Open in Melbourne.

And it marked almost two years since Philanthropist and Melinda divorced after 27 years of marriage.
Gates and Hurd are pictured smiling as they walk across the Sun Valley Conference Wednesday afternoon.
The billionaire held hands with his new girlfriend as she tried to shed a coat to enjoy the Idaho sun.
He carried a yellow folder under his arm with the title: ‘Sun Valley. July 12-14, 2023.’
Some documents are stuck from the file, with visible notes ‘upstream noise’, ‘pitch clock’ and ‘baseshift’.
Another page of notes has a list of speakers, which clearly includes ‘Mark Zuckerberg’.
Also featured at the day’s event was Michael Larson, who is the chief investment officer of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

In the evening, Gates and Heard were seen dining with two friends as the sun began to set.
Heard was seen scrolling through photos on her cellphone and showing them to her guests, who smiled and nodded.
Gates, meanwhile, was seen discussing business, with the female friend looking serious and nodding as he spoke.
They all appeared to be drinking iced water with lemon as soft music played in the background.
Another clip shows the pair talking to a waitress who came to check on them, where they tell her they’re not ordering food.
Heard is the widow of former Oracle co-CEO and president Mark Heard, who died in 2019 at the age of 62 after a reported battle with cancer.
Her late husband, who spent most of his career at tech company NCR and later Hewlett-Packard before joining Oracle in 2010, had an estimated net worth of $500 million at the time of his death.

Putting their differences aside: Exes Bill and Melinda Gates reunite to celebrate their daughter Jennifer’s graduation from Columbia University
Jennifer, 27, received her master’s degree in public health this week, and her billionaire parents were by her side to commemorate the achievement.
It comes after a rare display of togetherness between Gates and his ex when they got together to celebrate their daughter Jennifer’s graduation from Columbia University.
Jennifer, 27, received her master’s degree in public health this week, and her billionaire parents rallied to support her – two years after their split.
The graduation ceremony was one of the few occasions they have been seen together since the announcement of their divorce.
In February of this year, Newstimesuk.com exclusively revealed that Gates and Heard were dating.
The pair were spotted watching the men’s singles final during their trip Down Under to the Australian Open in Melbourne and traveled as far as Sydney where the billionaire met Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.
Gates and Heard took the opportunity to take a romantic stroll around the city as they stopped to admire the panoramic view of the harbor and the famous Opera House.
Photos of the two taken at sights were released at the time, but Heard was not identified.
Bill Gates had an affair with Russian bridge player Mila Antonova around 2010 and Jeffrey Epstein tried to blackmail her for the affair. The revelations add to a list of controversies in Gates’ love life
Mila Antonova, who had a relationship with Gates around 2010, showed a photo of them together during a presentation about her passion for the bridge.
Before Heard, Gates had a very checkered love life – from an ‘inappropriate’ relationship with employees that sparked a sexual harassment investigation at Microsoft to claims that Jeffrey Epstein tried to ‘frame’ her for an affair with a Russian bridge player.
Gates’ fling with Russian bridge player Mila Antonova — and Epstein’s attempt to use it against the Microsoft mogul — came to light in May.
Gates, a self-confessed bridge buff, met Antonova around 2010, when she was in her 20s and she was nearly three decades his senior.
The couple played bridge together because of Antonova’s ambition to launch an online bridge school.
Three years later, in 2013, he was introduced to Epstein by Gates’ scientific advisor, Boris Nikolic.
Antonova sought Epstein’s financial support for the bridge project but he did not invest.
Antonova said in 2010 that she did not ‘beat’ Gates on the bridge but ‘tried him to kick my leg’.
Although the extent of their relationship is unclear, Gates’ spokesman admitted that ‘Epstein tried unsuccessfully to use the past relationship to threaten Mr Gates’.
A single photo of Gates with Antonova has surfaced amid reports of their relationship.
Gates, dressed casually in a blue jacket and polo shirt, has one arm around the glamorous young Russian, who is wearing a dress and holding her hair in a band.
Epstein learned of the relationship and alluded to it in an email to Gates in 2017 — hinting that he might disclose it.
The disgraced financier wanted Gates to invest in a multi-billion dollar charity fund and sent the email as he tried to secure his support.
Gates’ affair with a female Microsoft employee came to light two decades later in 2000 – after the woman reported it to the company’s board and an investigation was launched.
Gates stepped down as CEO in 2000 but remained a member of the board. He abruptly resigned from the board in 2020 while an investigation into the incident, which began in 2019, was still ongoing.
His spokesperson confirmed the matter but said his departure was not connected.
Bill and Melinda Gates in 2018, three years before they announced their separation
The couple have three children together – Jennifer, 27, Rory, 23 and Phoebe, 20.
The woman involved in the ‘intimate relationship’ has never been identified.
It emerged just weeks after Bill and Melinda Gates made the shock announcement of their separation in May 2021 and the divorce was sealed in August of that year.
Their initial announcement was followed by a flurry of reports detailing Gates’ treatment of Microsoft employees, details of his 2000 relationship, and scrutiny of his relationship with Epstein.
Melinda has since detailed the ‘incredibly painful’ split but said she ‘couldn’t be in that marriage anymore’.
But she insisted that the divorce had nothing to do with Gates.
