Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and wife of 25 years, Mackenzie, are divorcing, and it may be down to his affair.
Details of Jeff’s affair with Lauren Sanchez was broken shortly after the divorce was announced.
Lauren Sanchez is the wife of Patrick Whitesell, a friend of the Amazon CEO, and their affair has reportedly lasted for 8 months.
Multiple outlets reported that Jeff and MacKenzie did not have a prenuptial agreement, meaning she may be entitled to half of his estimated $144 billion net worth.
The estranged couple live in Washington, which is a community property state where all assets and debts accrued during a marriage are considered equally owned by both spouses unless there is a prenup in place.
The Enquirer obtained several text messages that Jeff sent Emmy winner Sánchez in the spring of 2018. In one message, the entrepreneur 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.”
