It was only very recently that the world’s richest man, Jeff Bezos, announced that he and his wife, MacKenzie have been going through a ‘trail separation’ but now it is being reported that Jeff is having an affair with Lauren. That’s right! Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is secretly having a relationship with Lauren Sanchez, a former TV anchor and the wife of Hollywood talent mogul Patrick Whitesell. As reported by Page Six, “Bezos, 54, and Sanchez, 49, – who also works as a helicopter pilot – got to know each other through her WME/IMG husband Whitesell, one of Hollywood’s most powerful men and agent to stars including Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Kevin Costner, Hugh Jackman, plus a host of other A-listers.”
On Wednesday Bezos, took to social media to announce his separation as he wrote, “We want to make people aware of development in our lives. As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends. We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other. If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again.” Back in 2016, Jeff, Lauren, and Patrick were pictured together at an event but according to reports, Lauren and Jeff came closer after the former’s separation from Patrick.
Since Patrick-Lauren and Jeff-MacKenzie live in Seattle, both the couples have socialized with each other in the past and then “Lauren was hired to work on one of Bezos’ projects, ‘Blue Origin’, a space launch company, as a helicopter pilot and Patrick and Lauren Sanchez have been separated for a while. Their marriage has been off and on for a while, and they tried hard to fix things, but in the fall they officially separated. She had told Patrick that she has been recently seeing Jeff Bezos.”
Grapevine is abuzz that Bezos made an official announcement about his divorce on Wednesday, believing that photos of himself and Sanchez could soon be made public and surface online.
