Jeff Bezos' racy texts to Lauren Sanchez revealed

Sundance Party in Park City Utah Jan. 22 2005

His wife of 13 years, Lauren Sanchez was revealed to be having an affair with Bezos shortly after the billionaire announced he was divorcing his wife Mackenzie, 48, on Wednesday.

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. They had been separated but were now making it official, their statement said.

The National Enquirer publication which is found in its latest issue released today, said that its team tracked Jeff and Lauren across five states and 40,000 miles, tailed them in private jets, swanky limos, helicopter rides, romantic hikes, five-star hotel hideaways, intimate dinner dates and "quality time" in hidden love nests.

In their statement on Wednesday, Jeff and MacKenzie said they had been going through a "trial separation" in recent months. 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. The couple owned a home in Seattle and have socialised with the Bezoses in the past, the New York Post reported.

The other woman: former So You Think You Can Dance host Laura Sanchez.

Sanchez and Bezos reportedly became close after he hired her to shoot aerials for one of his projects.

President Donald Trump wished Amazon Inc. founder Jeff Bezos luck in his divorce from his wife MacKenzie, predicting the proceedings will be "a beauty".

Jeff is now dating ex-news anchor Lauren Sanchez, 49.

Bezos has a current net worth of $137 billion (down from last year's $160 billion), while Amazon is the most valuable company in the world with a total worth of $810 billion.

The divorce is further complicated by the fact the couple reside in Washington in the U.S. which is a "community property state" which means all assets and debts accrued during the marriage are considered equally owned by both spouses, unless a prenuptial agreement states otherwise.

The couple could have devised a postnuptial agreement to do so on their own, and likely have a deal meant to not rock Amazon.

And, should Amazon's shares continue to rise, Fortune noted, he could again overtake Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates as the world's richest man.
