Who Is Jeff Bezos’ New Girlfriend Lauren Sanchez?

New details about Jeff Bezos' divorce have surfaced and many are expecting it to be very expensive.

Bezos, whom Forbes lists at the world's richest person, worth an estimated $136.2 billion United States, said via Twitter on Wednesday that he and his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie, will divorce. The couple owned a home in Seattle and have socialised with the Bezoses in the past, the New York Post reported.

"This is such an over-owned company and this gives them an excuse to say "Maybe I'll trim some back because it adds a new question mark", he said.

The magazine claimed that the lovers had been dating since a year ago and that Bezos met Sanchez for illicit trysts as often as six times in two weeks, took her on exotic holidays on his $65 million private jet and sent her erotic selfies "too explicit to print". Forbes magazine's lists Jeff Bezos as the world's richest person with an estimated $139 billion.

"I wish him luck", Trump said outside the White House to reporters who asked Thursday about the personal headlines swirling around Bezos, whom the president has regularly demonized both for Bezos' fortunes at Amazon and his ownership of the Washington Post, which has closely and critically covered Trump's administration.

The other woman: former So You Think You Can Dance host Laura Sanchez. She also founded Bystander Revolution, an organization dedicated to combatting bullying that counts Monica Lewinsky and actress Lily Collins as ambassadors.

Bezos, 54, and Sanchez were even spotted together this weekend at Amazon's Golden Globes party after the awards show along with Whitesell.

As for her personal life, Sanchez was previously in a relationship with former National Football League tight end Tony Gonzalez, with whom she has a son, Nikko, who was born in 2001.

But Bezos' divorce bill may have the lovelorn web lord reaching for the Pepto Bismol.

"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", they said.

"Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends", the statement concluded.

Last year, the couple announced plans to commit US$2 billion to fund existing non-profits that help homeless families and to create a network of preschools in low-income communities.

It was through her husband that Sanchez is believed to have met the richest man in the world.

"We feel incredible lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for everyone one of the years we have been married to each other", the duo's message stated.
