National Enquirer Publishes Alleged Texts Between Jeff Bezos and 'Mistress'

Lauren Sanchez Jeff Bezos and Mackenzie Bezos

Bezos, whom Forbes lists at the world's richest person, worth an estimated $136.2 billion U.S., said via Twitter on Wednesday that he and his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie, will divorce.

'Their marriage has been off and on for a while, and they tried hard to fix things, but in the fall they officially separated, ' a source told the magazine.

A report from the National Enquirer details that Bezos, 54, was having an affair with his friend Patrick Whitesell's wife, former Extra host Lauren Sanchez, during his marriage.

Bezos and his wife announced they would divorce on Wednesday.

According to CNBC, Bezos would have to shell out billions in cash and shares to MacKenzie, 48.

How the New York Post reported the story.

Bacarella, however, said he is not concerned because even if MacKenzie Bezos liquidated a stake that could be as high as 8 per cent, there would be no fundamental reason behind the sale.

Her other credits include hosting the first season of "So You Think You Can Dance" and co-hosting "Good Day L.A." on FOX.

Other woman Sanchez is married to a Tinseltown talent big wheel named Patrick Whitesell. The 49-year-old has also appeared as a guest host on "The View".

She and Bezos were seen together in Los Angeles on Sunday, the day of the Golden Globes and at Amazon's after-party, the Post reported.

Bezos, who was recently named the richest man in the world, and wife MacKenzie Bezos announced their split in a statement on the billionaire's Twitter account on Wednesday, writing that they had chose to continue their "shared lives as friends". He drafted the company's original business plan on a laptop while driving cross-country in the early 1990s to Seattle with MacKenzie Bezos at the wheel.

That means in the state of Washington where there are "community property rules", couples without a prenup split assets down the middle, thus meaning the Amazon CEO's fortune of $137B could be cut directly in half with a 50/50 split.

The divorce deal could significantly dilute his ownership and control of Amazon.

Jeff and Lauren reportedly got close after Lauren and her husband separated.

"It's unlikely there's any risk to the company", said Stuart Slotnick, chairman of the matrimonial department of law firm Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney in New York City.

The net worth of Jeff Bezos has been estimated at $137 billion.

Mr Bezos is the founder and chief executive of Amazon, which recently took Microsoft's spot as the most valuable United States firm.
