Love nest? Be­zos buys $165 m es­tate

The Free Press Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

Jeff Be­zos has dipped into world's rich­est cof­fers to splurge a whop­ping $165 mil­lion to buy the Warner Es­tate in Bev­erly Hills, where he is spend­ing plenty of time lately with girl­friend Lau­ren Sanchez on board a $200 mil­lion yacht ‘Ris­ing Sun’.

The Warner prop­erty is thought to be the love nest where Be­zos and Sanches -for­mer TV news an­chor -will ini­tially move in to.

This is seen in me­dia as some­thing of a style makeover for Be­zos, 56, whose once-low-key per­sonal life has been a source of fre­quent head­lines since he and MacKen­zie Be­zos di­vorced in 2019.

He’s been walk­ing red car­pets with Sanchez and has even been drawn into geopo­lit­i­cal con­tro­ver­sies over al­le­ga­tions that the crown prince of Saudi Ara­bia was in­volved in hack­ing his phone, me­dia re­ports say. Ac­cord­ing to the For­tune magazine, Be­zos’s real-es­tate em­pire al­ready fea­tures homes on both US coasts, such as a Wash­ing­ton, D.C., man­sion where he re­cently hosted a party for cap­i­tal elite in­clud­ing Jared Kush­ner and Ivanka Trump. He also owns 170,000 hectares (420,000 acres) of desert scrub in Texas.

While the deal may ap­pear way too ex­pen­sive to or­di­nary mor­tals, it may not pinch Be­zos much whose net worth is $131.9 bil­lion even af­ter his mar­i­tal split.
