Amazon multi-billionaire Jeff Bezos’s divorce was sparked by an eight-month affair with a married American TV star, it is claimed.
The world’s richest man and Lauren Sanchez, 49, were cheating on their spouses since June, according to the National Enquirer magazine.
Yesterday it alleged that 54-year-old Bezos – said to be worth £125billion – sent the former So You Think You Can Dance presenter erotic selfies “too explicit to print” and whisked her off on holidays in his £51million jet.
One message, it is claimed, said: "I miss you. I want to kiss you right now and tuck you in slowly and gently.
And in another message he reportedly wrote: "I am so full of love for you. My heart is growing just so it can have room for you.
"It’s bigger than it’s ever been and still swelling."
"And maybe in the morning wake you up and not be quite so gentle with you."
The magazine alleges that he also sent her an ‘unsparing’ picture of his genitals, as well as shirtless pictures.
On Sunday the pair were together at Amazon’s Golden Globes party.
Bezos is reported to have begun the affair after splitting from novelist wife MacKenzie, 46, following what he called “a long period of loving exploration and trial separation”.
But the Enquirer alleged he sent Sanchez texts saying “I want to smell you” and “I want to breathe you in” as early as April 2018.
Accomplished helicopter pilot Sanchez is married to Hollywood talent mogul Patrick Whitesell.
They are said to have “separated this fall”.
The pair, who have not filed for divorce, have two children.
She also has a teenage son from a first marriage. The two couples, with homes in Seattle, Washington, have known each other for years.
An unnamed source told the New York Post: “Patrick and Lauren…tried to fix things but in the fall they officially separated.
“She told Patrick she had recently been seeing Bezos.”
On Wednesday Bezos said he and MacKenzie, who helped found Amazon, were splitting after 25 years.
The divorce settlement could make the mum of four the world’s richest woman.
The National Enquirer said it trailed Bezos for 16 weeks in a bid to prove he and Sanchez were “doing the dirty”.
It allegedly followed them for 40,000 miles as they travelled by private jet, limo and helicopter for “quality time in hidden love nests”.
Sanchez and Amazon did not respond to requests for comment. A representative for Bezos said he remained “focused on all aspects of Amazon”.
