You know that Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, are getting a divorce - we told you that yesterday. We also know that they were separated beforehand...but community property aside, his relationship with Lauren Sanchez may play a part in how much of his $137-billion fortune MacKenzie gets.
Apparently, Lauren is separated high-powered Hollywood agent Patrick Whitesell – a friend of Jeff’s – but the question is when the respective separations happened...and when the relationship began. Oh...AND when she and the Amazon mogul began exchanging racy text messages.
- In one? He said, “I love you, alive girl. I will show you with my body, and my lips and my eyes, very soon.”
- Another offered, “I want to smell you. I want to breathe you in. I want to hold you tight. I want to kiss your lips.”
- And lest you think it’s just sexual...he also told her, “I love you. I am in love with you.”
Depending on whom you ask, Patrick and MacKenzie have known about the Jeff/Lauren relationship...just found out...or were about to find out, which is why everything's out in the open now. According to one report, MacKenzie suspected something was up and when she got a gander at a plane manifest for Jeff's private plane...and discovered that Lauren was the only other passenger, the jig was up.
