Amazon CEO’s ‘fling’ behind split with wife?

Lauren Sanchez Jeff Bezos and Mackenzie Bezos

It claimed that Bezos met Sanchez as often as six times in a fortnight, took her on exotic holidays in his private jet and sent her selfies "too explicit to print".

Bezos announced his divorce from his wife in a Twitter post, Wednesday.

"I think we can assume they did not have a premarital agreement but as the congressman always say, 'A billion dollars here, a billion dollars there, pretty soon you're talking about real money, '" Mindel tells PEOPLE. I want to kiss your lips....

In April, he also texted her, "I love you, alive girl". Washington state, where the couple plans to divorce, has so-called "50-50" divorce laws, meaning couples generally divide their assets evenly. The couple owned a home in Seattle and have socialised with the Bezoses in the past, the New York Post reported. As an officer and director at the company, Bezos could be required to file an SEC Form 4 within two business days of any transfer, though former SEC lawyer Broc Romanek noted a provision of US securities laws exempts share transfers made pursuant to a domestic relations order.

No information is available on how the couple are dealing with the financial implication of the divorce.

Bezos is now the world's richest person, with an estimated net worth of US$137 (A$190.9) billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, which means this divorce could end up being very costly.

"We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other", the statement continued. "As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have made a decision to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends", Bezos declared. Sanchez has two children with Whitesell, a WWE/IMG agent.

The split throws into question how the couple will split their fortune, which includes an approximately 16 per cent ownership stake in Amazon's roughly $811.4 billion USA market capitalization.

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.

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

Over the past four months, the Enquirer has been tracking the new super couple from their private jets to "hidden love nests". Bezos added that "if we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again".
