Jeff Bezos is the founder, chairman, president and CEO of Amazon. Amazon
is an e-commerce and technology company. He is the richest man in the
world. Prior to April of 2019, his estimated self-worth was $166 BILLION dollars!
In 1992, Bezos was working in New York where he met novelist Mac Kenzie
Tuttle. They married in 1993. In 1994, the couple moved to Seattle, Washington
where Jeff founded Amazon. The couple has three sons and an adopted daughter
from China. In January of 2019, the couple announced on social media site
Twitter they were divorcing after 25 years of marriage. The announcement was made
shortly after the tabloid newspaper
The National Enquirer broke the story of Bezos’s affair with TV media celebrity Lauren Sanchez.
On April 4, 2019, Bezos and Tuttle were officially divorced in Seattle,
Washington when their divorce was finalized. Bezos is keeping 75 percent
of the stock in Amazon. His net worth is now at merely $137 BILLION dollars,
and he is still considered the richest man in the world.
The next day, April 5, 2019, according to celebrity website TMZ, Lauren
Sanchez filed for divorce in Los Angeles.
Lauren Sanchez is a media personality, a former news anchor on a local
news station, a frequent guest onThe View, and regular contributor to celebrity-type TV programs. In 2005, she married
Patrick Whitesell, a Hollywood agent and founding partner of
William Morris Endeavor Entertainment. They have two children together, a boy (age 12) and a girl (age 11). Also,
on April 5, 2019, Whitesell filed his Response to Sanchez’s Petition
for divorce. They both filed their documents in pro-per, meaning neither
is represented by an attorney. However, according to TMZ, both documents
list a famous divorce attorney to the stars as their address.
In California, divorcing is made simple as possible by the filing of forms.
The forms include questions regarding most of the usual issues in a marriage
and divorce. In the Sanchez-Whitesell case, both documents list they want
joint custody of their children, and there is no pre-nuptial agreement
TMZ speculates that this famous lawyer mediated the parties before they
filed for divorce, so that all the issues from their marriage would be
settled outside the public eye. There are no issues for the court to settle
between them, so now they just need to wait six months for their divorce
to be final.
In six months, when the Sanchez-Whitesell divorce is final can we expect
an announcement that Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez are marrying each other?
