Bill Gates hired women to swim naked with him before he met soon-to-be ex-wife Melinda, biographer James Wallace, who has wrote two books on the Microsoft founder, told MailOnline.
The billionaire was also not faithful to Melinda when they first began dating – but was "proud" of remaining faithful to her throughout their marriage.
Melinda and Bill finally called it quits on May 3 after 27 years and three children together, but according to Mr Wallace their relationship had "ran hot and cold" in the early days.
He claims the pair even "broke up for nearly a year" before coming back together in 1992 as Gates "refused to make any kind of commitment."
The uncertainty surround the pair’s early relationship had much to do with Bill’s "womanising," Wallace told the Mail, claiming the Microsoft founder would hold some "pretty wild parties."
Mr Wallace even said that Bill and his friends would "go out and get strippers in Seattle" and "bring them over" to the Microsoft founder’s house.
He said: "They would have some pretty wild parties, where they would go out and get strippers in Seattle and bring them over to Bill's home."
In Wallace's 1997 book Overdrive: Bill Gates and the Race to Control Cyberspace, Wallace said the strippers would then "swim naked" with him and his friends "in his indoor pool.
He wrote: "Gates would visit one of Seattle's all-nude nightclubs and hire dancers to come to his home and swim naked with his friends in his indoor pool."
The author told the Mail: "He wasn't a choir boy back then, he wasn't just this little computer nerd. He did have a life back then."

Melinda was reportedly "aware" of Gates' antics, the author claims, writing: "French (Melinda's maiden name) was well aware of Gates's womanising, and consequently their relationship ran hot and cold.
"At one point, they broke up for nearly a year, reportedly because Gates refused to make any kind of commitment.
"When they got back together again in 1992, however, the relationship grew closer and stronger."

Melinda and Bill got married two years later in 1994 and went on to have three children together, Phoebe, Jennifer and Rory.
The pair built a multi-billion dollar empire together, with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the most successful in the world as of 2021.
In a statement released by both Melinda and Bill on Twitter, the pair said of their divorce: "After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage.
"Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives.
"We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.
"We ask for space and privacy for our family as we beigin to navigate this new life."
