Who Is Jeff Bezos’ New Girlfriend Lauren Sanchez?

And, according to The Sun, MacKenzie was one of Jeff's first employees at Amazon when he hired her as an accountant for the then start-up online bookstore in 1994. Sanchez has two children with Whitesell, a WWE/IMG agent.

I don't know about that, because she put in some hard yards over the years, but she's certainly reaped the rewards.

According to top NY divorce attorney Shireen Arani, * it is likely that Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos have already resolved the issues incident to their divorce prior to the Tweet, and a full settlement agreement may already have been executed, complete with iron-clad confidentiality provisions.

Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie Bezos, posted a joint statement on Twitter this morning announcing their divorce.

The Enquirer says it trailed Bezos for four months in what it calls the "largest investigation" in the magazine's history, with its photographer catching the lovebirds "doing the dirty on their spouses". The Bezos have four children.

If Bezos and his wife split their finances equally, Bezos could drop down to become the fifth richest person on the planet. Most high-ranking employees saw her at social events the couple hosted at their Medina home and elsewhere.

When Amazon showcased its new biospheres, the plant-filled architectural centerpiece of its Seattle headquarters, the couple toured the building with a horticulturist.

Following the National Enquirer's publishing of Bezos' alleged ongoing infidelity with Sanchez, Whitesell, 53, was said to have been "totally blindsided".

Yet, in lieu of this revelation that Bezos is, uh, seemingly less skilled at the art of seduction than he is at building multi-billion dollar empires, it still stands that he is literally the richest man in the world-and that fact has not been lost on people.

Mr Bezos has been a regular target of the president, in part due to his ownership of the "Washington Post", which frequently criticises the current administration.

TMZ also reports that Jeff and MacKenzie did not sign a pre-nuptial agreement before their marriage, which means Jeff's $137 billion fortune, by all rights, will be split in half, making MacKenzie the richest woman in the world.

"This is such an over-owned company and this gives them an excuse to say "Maybe I'll trim some back because it adds a new question mark", he said.

Bezos and his wife announced they would divorce on Wednesday. It's important to note that there was reportedly no prenuptial agreement.

Bezos is a digital pioneer and reportedly expressed his appreciation of his pneumatic mistress in dozens of raunchy texts and "erotic" selfies, including one which was reportedly too explicit to publish.
