Is Bill Gates Related To Ghislaine Maxwell?
Social media users are trying to draw a connection between Ghislaine Maxwell and Bill Gates by claiming that Bill Gates' mother is related to Ghislaine's father because her maiden name is Maxwell. This claim is false.
The claim is backed up by an image of a man identified as Bill Gates in between two rabbis and the post itself reads; "Bill Gates with Rabbi Schneerson the head of the Jewish extremist end times cult Chabad Lubavitch. Gate’s mother is a Maxwell, related to the Israeli Mossad agents Robert Maxwell and his daughter Ghislaine, who used child trafficking to blackmail world leaders with Jeffrey Epstein".
The first statement of this claim is wrong. A Google reverse search of the image led us to an article titled; "Better Energy: The Rebbe’s energy" published by the Jerusalem post in 2014. This article is about the late Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson and the author, Yosef I. Abramowitz is the bespectacled man in the picture.
Additionally, even though Bill Gates mother's maiden name was Mary Maxwell, she's not related at all to Robert Maxwell whose real name was Ján Ludvík Hoch. Robert Maxwell was born in 1923 in Czechoslovakia.
As a teenager, Maxwell fled to France to avoid the Nazi occupation but lost most of his family to the Holocaust. From France, he went to Britain and joined the British army under the name, Ivan du Maurier. In 1946, Maxwell became a naturalized citizen of Britain and in 1948, he officially changed his name to Ian Robert Maxwell.
Mary Ann Maxwell, Gates' mother, was born in 1929 in Seattle, Washington several miles away to Adele Thompson and James Willard Maxwell while Robert Maxwell only changed his name to Ian Robert Maxwell in 1948 when he moved to the United Kingdom.
This claim about the connection between Ghislaine Maxwell and Bill Gates is false.
