Jeff, Lauren secret romantic texts leaked just after the divorce announcement

11 January 2019

Today, TMZ report that the couple did not have a pre-nuptial agreement and a significant chunk of Bezo's fortune could be on the line.

President Donald Trump had a few words for Amazon head Jeff Bezos following news of Bezos' impending $140-billion divorce.

Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder, was forced to announce his divorce ahead of a tell-all story about his eight-month affair with a former TV presenter, it was reported on Thursday.

Bezos reportedly sent the messages to his "mistress", married news anchor and actress Lauren Sanchez, just months before the announcement of his separation with his wife.

A source close to the Bezos told DailyMail.com that the Amazon founder only began seeing Sanchez after separating from his wife, however, the National Enquirer claims the affair went on behind their spouses' backs. It said they took private jet, swanky limo and chopper rides as well as romantic hikes, and spent "quality time" at several hidden locations. "I am in love with you", the billionaire messaged former "Extra" anchor Lauren Sanchez on May 13 previous year, according to the National Enquirer.

In another text, "I want to smell you, I want to breathe you in".

Sanchez and Whitesell married in 2005 and have two children, but have not filed for divorce as of now, Fox News reported.

Indeed, most on Wall Street appear to be betting that the couple - which said in a statement this week they will "continue our shared lives as friends" - won't let their problems become Amazon's. Jeff Bezos, 54, is at the top of most list, and his fortune now hovers around $137 billion. In another, his soon-to-be ex-wife diminishes his clout at the company by selling her half of their 80 million shares, valued at $137 billion.

However, Bezos' wife, MacKenzie, knew the two were dating, the Post quotes an unnamed person close to Bezos as saying.

Lauren Sanchez with then husband Patrick Whitesell and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos attend a movie premiere in 2016. "We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for everyone one of the years we have been married to each other", the duo's statement read. "If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again".
