Jeff Bezos’ GF Lauren Sanchez Files for Divorce

Jeff Bezos' mistress Lauren Sanchez and her estranged husband Patrick Whitesell have filed for divorce - the day after the Amazon billionaire's divorce was finalized, Page Six has confirmed.

She added: "Excited about my own plans". Grateful for the past as I look forward to what comes next, ' MacKenzie said.

The shares will make her the third richest woman in the world -after Bettencourt Meyers (the richest women in the world), and Alice Walton- while Jeff will remain the world's richest person, according to Forbes.

'Happy to be giving him all of my interest in the Washington Post and Blue Origin and 75% of our Amazon stock plus voting control of my shares to support his continued contributions with the teams of these incredible companies.

The pair made a decision to end their 25 year marriage in January of this year.

Divorce documents were reportedly filed on Friday to sever the 13-year marriage between Sanchez and Patrick Whitesell, the co-CEO of the talent agency WME.

Back in January, Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos announced they were seeking a divorce, which left everyone wondering, as in any divorce, how civil it would be.

He said: "I'm so grateful to all my friends and family for reaching out with encouragement and love".

The announcement was made on the show's official Facebook page, which also shared a brief trailer ofThe Hills' upcoming revival. MTV confirmed on Wednesday that the series will air in New Zealand from June 25.


Jeff Bezos, 55, is the largest single shareholder at Amazon with a 16.3% stake as per one of their latest proxy statements. "It means more than you know", Jeff Bezos wrote. "MacKenzie most of all". By 1995, Amazon was operating out of a garage, with MacKenzie Bezos helping out.

'In all our work together, MacKenzie's abilities have been on full display.

The divorce deal dwarfs a previous $3.8bn record set in 1999 by art dealer Alec Wildenstein and his wife Jocelyn, who became well-known for her cosmetic surgery.

Jeff Bezos, in a Twitter message of his own, said his now ex-wife has been "an extraordinary partner, ally, and mother".

The tweet concluded with: "She is resourceful and brilliant and loving, and as our futures unroll, I know I'll always be learning from her".

After Mr Bezos and his wife announced in January that they would part, a United States tabloid magazine published details, including private messages, of an extramarital affair with Ms Sánchez.

The couple have four children and have known each other since before Jeff established Amazon in 1994.
