‘I want to smell you, …I want to kiss your lips’: Jeff Bezos’ racy lines to cost him half of his wealth – Times Now
New Delhi: Amazon boss Jeff Bezos’ text message sent to his rumoured girlfriend Lauren Sanchez, 49, a former news anchor, could be the likely reason behind his divorce from MacKenzie and may cost him half of his wealth. According to a report in the Times of India, US tabloid National Enquirer has claimed to have obtained text messages sent by Jeff Bezos to Lauren Sanchez. One of them allegedly was, “I want to smell you, I want to breathe you in. I want to hold you tight… I want to kiss your lips… I love you. I am in love with you.”
Amazon chief Bezos is currently the world’s richest person with estimated wealth of around $137 billion (according to Bloomberg Billionaires Index). In case of divorce, his wealth could be equally split between him and wife MacKenzie, as they don’t have a prenuptial agreement, said celebrity news outlet TMZ.
National Enquirer has revealed that 54-year-old Bezos has been dating Lauren, who is separated from her husband Patrick Whitesell, a Hollywood talent agent and reportedly a friend of Bezos.
Meanwhile, MacKenzie has been with Bezos since 1992, before he became an entrepreneur. From Amazon’s humble beginnings in 1994 from a garage in Seattle to becoming world’s biggest e-tailer, MacKenzie was with Bezos’ side for the entire adventure.
Bezos currently own 16 per cent stake in Amazon, the bulk of his assets, valued at around $130 billion. Any divorce settlement would include his stock portfolio also. If it were split in half, that would leave Bezos with an eight per cent stake and MacKenzie will get the other 8 per cent stake, valuing nearly $65 billion, the AFP report said.
Other than Amazon stake the former couple, according to TMZ, own 400,000 acres of property, which would also be equally split between them. Worth mentioning here that Bezos and MacKenzie have four children – three sons and an adopted daughter.
