Be­zos ‘on date with TV star be­fore split up’

Sunday Express - - CRIME - Mike Parker

AMAZON multi­bil­lion­aire Jeff Be­zos and a woman said to be his mis­tress were seen “mak­ing out like teenagers” at a Los Angeles hotspot six weeks be­fore he an­nounced his di­vorce, it was claimed last night.

Be­zos, the world’s wealth­i­est man, was al­legedly seen en­gag­ing in “pub­lic dis­plays of af­fec­tion” with TV news an­chor Lau­ren Sanchez at a packed Italian restau­rant.

One wit­ness said: “They were in the mid­dle of the restau­rant, mak­ing out like teenagers. It was weird, be­cause it would have been odd for any adults to be do­ing that at this restau­rant, which is one of the hard­est in LA to get into.”

The al­leged sight­ing oc­curred at the end of Novem­ber, nearly a month and a half be­fore Be­zos last week an­nounced his split from wife MacKen­zie after 25 years of mar­riage.

Le­gal ex­perts be­lieve the Amazon founder’s mas­sive for­tune – es­ti­mated at £107bil­lion – could now be di­vided in two in what is likely to be­come the most ex­pen­sive di­vorce in his­tory.

A US mag­a­zine re­cently claimed he had been cheat­ing on her for months with Ms Sanchez, 49.

Be­zos, 55, who launched Amazon in 1994 – one year after mar­ry­ing Macken­zie – has not pub­licly re­ferred to Ms Sanchez.
