Jeff Bezos' racy texts to Lauren Sanchez revealed

Meanwhile, Jeff and his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie, made it clear in their statement that they had been separated for a "long period". (See their full statement below.) They have yet to file any official paperwork with the courts, confirming expectations that they will seek to handle the matter privately so as to avoid attracting unwanted attention to the company.

The National Enquirer revealed on Thursday it had tailed the billionaire for four months across five states as he engaged in secret trysts with Lauren Sanchez, a former Fox presenter.

The couple, who have been married 25 years, announced their divorce on Wednesday over Twitter. 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 U.S. 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 wife of Patrick Whitesell, executive chairman of WME-IMG holding company Endeavor, Sanchez is a former anchor of Good Day L.A. on KTLA Channel 5.

Bacarella, however, said he is not concerned because even if MacKenzie Bezos liquidated a stake that could be as high as 8 per cent, there would be no fundamental reason behind the sale.

President Donald Trump, who has frequently attacked Bezos and Amazon while in office, was asked by reporters about the divorce today.

Bezos reportedly propositioned Sanchez behind her husband's back while they honored the Oscar-winning film Manchester By The Sea. The 49-year-old has also appeared as a guest host on "The View".

That means in the state of Washington where there are "community property rules", couples without a prenup split assets down the middle, thus meaning the Amazon CEO's fortune of $137B could be cut directly in half with a 50/50 split.

No information is available on how the couple are dealing with the financial implication of the divorce.

Sources told the New York Post that Bezos and Sanchez began hooking up in early 2018 after separating from their spouses.

Last year, the couple launched the Bezos Day One Fund, offering a two billion dollar fund to help homeless families and build pre-schools in low-income neighbourhoods.

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.
