From the London Mail [caution, tabloid]:
A source told the New York Post news of the couple’s divorce was ‘no surprise’ because Bill’s links to Epstein had been a ‘bone of contention’ in their marriage.
‘The split is no surprise to me,’ they said.
‘And any friendship with Epstein would have been a bone of contention for Melinda. There is no way that Melinda would have wanted to spend time with Epstein.’
However, despite being upset about Epstein, Melinda reportedly struggled with her decision to divorce Bill because of her strict Roman Catholic faith, claimed another source. The insider said Melinda is hoping to get an annulment from the Vatican after their civil divorce is finalized.
