The National Enquirer has his sexes and, it seems, cheeky photos. His upcoming divorce is the talk of Wall Street.
Jeff Bezos, the Amazon boss, announced Friday that he had turned to a unique figure – a "bodyguard of the stars" and a Los Angeles-based security adviser Gavin de Becker
Bezos and his longtime Ms. MacKenzie divorces, and the National Enquirer has revealed his extramarital affair with TV personality Lauren Sanchez. Bezos wrote that he wrote on the website Medium that the editor of the National Enquirer had threatened to publish sexual photos that he and Sanchez shared when he did not cancel De Becker, whom Bezos referred to as a 20-year-old friend.
