Amazon boss Jeff Bezos yesterday announced his split from wife MacKenzie after 25 years of marriage.
And it’s now been claimed that the 54-year-old billionaire is dating news anchor Lauren Sanchez, who’s own 12-year marriage to top Hollywood agent Patrick Whitesell ended last autumn.
“Lauren and Jeff have been spending a lot of time together over the last year and especially the past few months,” the source told People magazine of the pair, who were spotted looking cosy at a Golden Globes after-party on Sunday.
“At first it was socially at parties… here and there. But their time together has definitely seemed to evolve, raising some eyebrows.
“Jeff has met a small group of Lauren’s girlfriends, too. The two of them are sort of thick as thieves right now.
But who is the stunning brunette who appears to have stolen his heart?
Lauren, 49, started out as an entertainment reporter on Extra – a position currently held by ex-TOWIE star Mark Wright.
She married Patrick in a star-studded ceremony in 2005, where guests included Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Hugh Jackman and Jessica Alba.
Gushing about their relationship, she once said, “I’d always ask my friends, ‘How do you know it’s the right one?’ Then when I met Patrick, I told them, ‘I so get it.’”
That same year she stepped down from hosting So You Think You Can Dance after just one series to have her second child, and has starred in films including Fight Club, The Day After Tomorrow, Ted 2.
In 2016 she took her career in an unexpected direction by becoming a helicopter pilot and setting up her own aerial film and production company, Black Ops Aviation.
“I had my job, I had my career, and then I found a calling. I loved entertainment and I loved filming, and so I got to combine all of it,” Lauren – who worked as a consultant on Dunkirk – told The Hollywood Reporter.
“I want to be in a helicopter all the time,” she said. “Life can be so chaotic with so much going on. Lift off and you’re in an energy space that no one else is in. It’s calming. When I’m up there, I’m completely satisfied. I’m like, ‘This is where I need to be.’”
The twice married mother-of-three is said to have met the Bezos’ through her husband, and she, Jeff and Patrick were spotted together at a party for the movie, Manchester by the Sea in 2016.
And Patrick apparently knows all about her new love.
“Patrick and Lauren have been on and off for a while and have been separated. [Patrick] knew they were seeing each other,” the insider told People.
For his part, Jeff revealed that he and MacKenzie, 48, – who have three sons and a daughter adopted from China – had a trial separation before agreeing to go their separate ways.
“After a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends,” tweeted the world’s richest man, who’s estimated to be worth £107billion.
“We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other,” he continued.
“If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again. We’ve had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects… though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends.”
The pair met in 1993 at investment firm D.E Shaw, where, in his role as vice president he interviewed her for the position of research associate.
“I think my wife is resourceful, smart, brainy, and hot, but I had the good fortune of having seen her résumé before I met her, so I knew exactly what her SATs were,” he quipped to Vogue in 2013 of his novelist ex.
It is not known if they have a pre-nup, but in Washington all assets accrued during the marriage are considered to be owned equally by all spouses.
