Did Jeff Bezos already dump his mistress Lauren Sanchez months ago?

Lauren Sanchez

A few weeks ago, Vanity Fair did an exhaustive story about the Jeff Bezos-Lauren Sanchez affair and how the affair was outed and the investigation into did the outing. Bezos hired Gavin de Becker to investigate and de Becker is also acting as a somewhat informal personal advisor to Bezos now. VF claimed that de Becker encouraged Lauren and Jeff Bezos to stay physically apart for several months while the investigation was ongoing. There are also people in Bezos’ orbit encouraging him to go back to his estranged wife Mackenzie. My point? No one thinks the Bezos-Sanchez affair is good news. And that was before we learned for sure that Lauren’s brother Michael Sanchez was the one to sell the texts and photos to the National Enquirer. Still, when VF did their story, they insisted that Bezos and Lauren Sanchez were still together. Now Page Six is saying… maybe not.

Michael Sanchez, the brother of Jeff Bezos’ lover, confirmed that he made a “deal with the devil” and helped the National Enquirer break the sensational story on Bezos and Lauren Sanchez’s extramarital affair. But Michael insisted to Page Six he did it to benevolently protect Lauren — and the world’s richest man — by ensuring the news of their romance broke only after their mutual spouses were told.

But now it’s unclear whether the couple at the center of the scandal is even together anymore. They have remained apart while Bezos’ security chief Gavin de Becker has conducted an investigation into the mole who leaked Bezos’ racy texts and below-the-belt selfies. A clandestine meeting in Manhattan between Bezos and Lauren that we reported on last month has been strongly denied by his camp.

A source told us the two “haven’t seen each other since the story broke. A lot of this has to do with their decision to lay low and spend time with their kids, who didn’t get a warning about the Enquirer story and now have to deal with the intense public interest and the paparazzi in pursuit.” The source added, “Michael isn’t doing her and Jeff any favors by keeping his sister’s name in the press. He may genuinely believe he is defending Lauren, but in many ways he is actually doing more to … doom her relationship with Jeff.”

Michael Sanchez goes on to tell Page Six that he’s not responsible for leaking the NSFW photos of Bezos, like that’s his moral high ground. I don’t even believe that – Michael Sanchez leaked the whole kit and caboodle. And he likely did it in concert with his sister. What bothers me more, the fact that these two stupid grifters conned Jeff Bezos, or that they’re still lying about it? One thing is for sure – Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez need to be over, if they aren’t already.

    What a f-ing mess. Bravo Jeff. You really messed up.

    I guess the roll out of Lauren as your greatest love didn’t go as planned when your angel turns out to be a self-serving social climber who sold you out to force you to divorce your wife. I hope your children forgive you someday.

  2. Christina says:

    De Becker still appears to work for Bezos. Bezos was charmed, but De Becker likely showed him everything months ago. This has to be over. Even if she didn’t betray him and it was all her brother, the family is too dangerous to have around.

  3. Bubbalouie says:

    Jeff needs to get away from these fuckers !

  4. Cupcake says:

    What a mess! I feel for the MANY kids involved.

    • Kathy says:

      Right? Like, what the heck is this: “A lot of this has to do with their decision to lay low and spend time with their kids, who didn’t get a warning about the Enquirer story…” So you tell your spouse the story is about to break, but you let your kids learn on the playground when they get made fun of? That can’t be accurate. I don’t know the ages of these kids, but even if they are toddlers, you at least explain daddy is moving out. If they are in school, you tell them! Not about the details, but you give them some sort of heads up.

  5. Lisa says:

    Not surprised. It may have worked but things got way too messy and embarassing.

  6. Goldengirlslover34 says:

    When you think you about to secure the mega bag but your brother may have messed it up. This novella is hella interesting.

  7. Erinn says:

    You know. He did his wife dirty. But at the same time, nobody deserves that kind of a leak. It’s disgusting. If I was the wife, I’d only consider a reconciliation if there was some sort of contract offering me a hell of a lot more money if he cheated or anything of that nature. And even then, not sure it’d be worth it.

    • rose says:

      It would not be worth it.

    • Christina says:

      He sure did do her dirty. Not worth it to go back in my mind, but, if she is still in love with her husband, she may take him back. He’s been appropriately humiliated and deserves all of the bad news cycles. His kids and wife have been betrayed, but they have been a family for a long time. There is the marriage and there is the family. He may want to save it now that this has happened unless they are truly checked out of the marriage. Lots of marriages survive humiliating infidelity.

  8. line says:

    I think she is involved because how her brother can take her phone without her realizing but if he’s not an accomplice then she’s incredibly stupid what an idea to tell your brother who is a supporter of Trump that you have a liason with Jeff Bezos. In both cases she shows that she was not a trusted person.

  9. Jennifer says:

    As someone divorced due to infidelity…if my husband had gotten down on his knees and begged me to take him back, I would have…divorce is hard when you are surprised by infidelity and still love your spouse :( Sharing custody of small children is hard, too.

    • Jb says:

      Sorry to hear that Jennifer…can’t imgaine the betrayal you must have felt. I don’t know you but no one deserves to be hurt that way and hoping that even though divorce is hard, it’s shown you’re stronger than you think. It’s too bad your ex didn’t realize how great you are but hopefully you’ll find happiness solo or with someone new :)

    • Dani says:

      @Jennifer: I’m sorry to hear about your divorce. I hope you are doing ok now.

      As an aside, my parents divorced when I was a teenager (due to infidelity among other reasons) and I wished that they had divorced sooner because they were so miserable with each other.

      Your children may not understand now, but hopefully they will as they get older.

    • Sayrah says:

      I’m sorry. Infidelity is hard to deal with whether you divorce or try to work it out. I’m still dealing with the work it out side almost 2 years later.

  10. smee says:

    Didn’t he have a woman (that looked just like his wife) as a date to Oscar parties?

  11. MCV says:

    If I was Mackenzie I would get my well deserved money and be done with him.

  12. Jan080 says:

    Mr. Bezos will never know if a woman loves him for his fine personality or billions of dollars. I feel for him. He messed up.

  13. Annie says:

    Yes. I don’t see a an alternative reality where Lauren doesn’t have anything to do with this. Since when do our siblings have access to our texts and actually make copies of them to sell to tabloids? How do you let someone take your phone for that long and not know it? I would not be surprised if she’s in on it. We’re talking about the richest man in the world here.

    And rich married men stay perpetually dumb. Women want your money, dude. Not you. Don’t leave the person who was there before you became rich. Other women will just use you.

  14. Lindy says:

    I cannot imagine him staying with this cheap social climber knowing that her brother sold them out. And it’s hard to believe she wasn’t in on it. I’m not a fan of Bezos and his ruthless capitalism and employee exploitation, but he definitely got played.

  15. Lena says:

    Laurens brother was the leaker to all the tabloids about how madly in love they were and “it is a love story for the ages” etc etc. Plus he knew about their affair from the very beginning. He must really hate his brother in law Patrick Whitesell, a big time agent, to promote this affair like he did like her marriage of 13 years was nothing. I feel sorry for (whitesell) too as well as their two kids. Lots of victims of this gross affair.

  16. Jaded says:

    I cannot believe he got conned by these 2 pieces of lying trash. Richest businessman in the world and he gets grifted. Ain’t nothing like a stiff pr*ck to cloud your judgement. I’ve been cheated on several times and in each case I left the relationship like a bullet out of a gun, no looking back. I hope that’s what Bezos has done ‘cuz there isn’t enough polish in the world to get the tarnish of the Sanchez siblings off him.

  17. Sam says:

    These nerds that end up with a little power are easily flattered. “Oh, Jeff, I love your kooky alien eyes. And with that bald head, hellllllooo Captain Picard!”

  18. Felicia says:

    I hope McKenzie has lawyered up and divorces his pathetic ass. She has said zero in her own voice since this came out.

  19. Danielle says:

    Its hard to conjure up any sympathy for Bezos. He had a good woman, who supported him through everything and he threw it away for what? He deserves everything he is getting now, for the betrayal to his family and his shitty, exploitive business practives. He is human garbage. Thank the Gods his wife is free now, hopefully she gets what she deserves.

  20. Vintage says:

    She’s such a cookie cutter bit from the Mistress R Us catalog.

  21. Suzieq359 says:

    Of course she was involved. She’s a social climber and wanted the notoriety. I’m sorry but do you know anyone her age that would be without their phone for that long that he could gathet that much info? And what about password. Nope, not buying it. She was in on ot and It backfired on her.

  22. Miss Gloss says:

    Wow, so dirty. What awful humans. All of them.
