On January 9th Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and wife, Mackenzie Bezos released a joint public statement via Twitter confirming their separation and divorce – more news came out,
“We want to make people aware of a 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. We’ve had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures. Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends.”
Now this news came as a surprise to fans but it has now been revealed that the couple was separated for quite some time as Jeff Bezos has been in a serious relationship with Lauren Sanchez. The National Enquirer reported hours after the divorce news that the billionaire CEO had been seeing his friend Patrick Whitesell’s wife, Sánchez, for eight months prior to the announcement of the divorce. According to the magazine, Jeff and the former host of Extra, were spotted together across five states at various hotels, restaurants and private estates. The report also went on to mention that both MacKenzie and Whitesell were made aware of their spouses’ affair with each other in the fall.
The Enquirer also obtained several text messages that Jeff sent Sánchez in the spring of 2018. In one message, the Amazon CEO reportedly wrote, “I want to breathe you in. I want to hold you tight…. I want to kiss your lips…. I love you. I am in love with you.” This relationship is much more serious than we thought and there are more reports saying that the couple of 8 months will be walking the Oscars Red Carpet together. We will just have to wait and see as this love, square, plays out.
