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.
Cristiano Ronaldo ‘Admits He Paid Rape Accuser $375k Settlement As His Lawyers Demand Her Civil Lawsuit Is Dismissed’
Cristiano Ronaldo, 34, has admitted he paid his rape accuser Kathryn Mayorga $375,000 in hush money in 2010.
This comes after Las Vegas authorities announced last month that there was not enough evidence to bring criminal charges against the Juventus striker.
American model, Mayorga claimed the football star raped her in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009 but Ronaldo strongly denies the claims. She also admitted that she took $375,000 from Ronaldo back in 2010 as part of a private settlement and also signed a confidentiality agreement vowing to keep her mouth shut about the alleged incident.
While Mayorga is pressing ahead with a civil case, Ronaldo’s lawyers want to have it thrown out over claims that they already settled it with a payoff and confidentiality agreement in 2010.
In newly filed court documents obtained by TMZ, Ronaldo’s camp acknowledged the $375,000 figure. His lawyers say the payment was not an admission of guilt, but merely an effort to keep the story from public attention.
“Mr. Ronaldo paid Plaintiff the sum of $375,000 and both parties agreed to be bound by explicit confidentiality and non-disparagement obligations,” the new court docs filed by Ronaldo state.
Mayorga’s lawyers now want the agreement thrown out.

Nana Appiah Mensah’s Full Speech At Menzgold Press Conference
Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen of the Press.
Thank you for coming to this event meant to provide you with the detailed state of our companies especially, what has bedeviled Menzgold for the past twelve months and the way forward.
May I state humbly that, this communication is without Prejudice.
First of all, let me start by praying the almighty God for grace today and to thank him gratefully as we count our many blessings.
Let me also take the opportunity to thank the Government of Ghana; Ambassador of Ghana to the United Arab Emirates; His Excellency Alhaji Ahmed Ramadan, for the consular services extended to me during my eight months detention in Dubai. I thank the Ghana Police Service for the warm reception and the exhibit of professionalism in the discharge of their duty on my arrival to Ghana on the 11th July, 2019.
I express my greatest form of immense gratitude to the ruler of Dubai, His Royal Highness Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, in his gracious name the Dubai Prosecutions and the Dubai Courts exhibited the highest form of integrity, by boldly upholding the rule of law, handing me justice before the Dubai first instance and superior Courts in the case number 68807/2018, an acquittal and discharge. May Allah, ever merciful, most compassionate bless and prosper Dubai forever. Allah Kareem.
I owe an immense debt of gratitude to the people of Ghana, our legal team abroad and in Ghana, led by Mr. Kwame Boafo Akuffo, my brother and my good friend; who has been resolute, exhibited loyalty and courage in the face our adversity, exhibiting his service and commitment to nothing but the law.
Today, I cannot forget to bless the over one thousand staff of Menzgold, Zylofon Media, Brew Marketing Consult and all our other companies in Ghana, as well as our families for their unwavering support, since the unfortunate events of the past few months. To you all I say; you made a good choice which would be well rewarded by God almighty, especially Mr. Kwame Boafo, like the biblical Moses, you chose to side and share in the afflicting of God’s people, instead of enjoying the temporary pleasures of sin. Thank you so much.
I also reserve my biggest gratitude to our cherished Menzgold customers for their continued support, encouragement, loyalty and prayers through the trying times. Thank you.
Even though I am still receiving the much-needed medical attention, swellings-blood clots in my pelvic region and knees with excruciating pains following a past surgical procedure, due to my well-publicized long nine-months detention in Dubai and Ghana. Regardless, I deem it very fit to make this address to the general public, especially to Menzgold customers in a bid to keep them abreast with the on goings.
Menzgold Ghana Company Limited is a licensed reputable Ghanaian gold dealership firm, with six years of impeccable and enviable service delivery and gold trading record. It would interest you to know that in five years, Menzgold consistently met the demands of its customers, suppliers and foreign partners who do business with us, but for the force majeure; the regulatory questions raised by the Bank of Ghana and the Securities and Exchange Commission; regulatory intervention of which we respectfully contested and is still before the Ghanaian courts of law. A question of statutory interpretation of; as to whether or not the trading of gold collectibles or jewelry and the return of monthly profits on same to traders is, “Deposits-Taking” or “Deposits Mobilization” Activity or “trade in Securities”. As to whether or not the exports of tons of gold dore bars of very fine percentage purity, with many evidence of inflows in forex via the bank of Ghana is a “Ponzi scheme?”, praying the just and august Ghanaian Courts to make consequential orders to repair Menzgold damage, if any.
