Billionaire Jeff Bezos is engaged to presenter Lauren Sánchez, says website


Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and presenter Lauren Sánchez are engaged. The information was first confirmed by Page Six this Monday (22), after Lauren was photographed wearing an engagement ring.

The couple vacations in the South of France and attended the screening of the film “Killers of the Flower Moon” at the Cannes Film Festival. Over the weekend, the two were photographed on a yacht valued at $500 million (about R$2.5 billion). In the photos, the diamond ring on the presenter’s finger also drew attention.

Bezos and Sánchez made their relationship public in January 2019. At the time, the former Fox News host was also in the process of divorcing then-husband Patrick Whitesell, with whom she was married for 13 years. Currently, Sánchez has joined her fiancé on the philanthropic mission and told CNN that the two are “great teammates.”

The businessman was previously married to philanthropist Mackenzie Scott for 25 years. The two announced their divorce in 2019 and share custody of 4 children. Mackenzie became one of the richest people in the world by receiving about 4% of Amazon shares, valued at US$ 35 billion (about R$ 175 billion) at the time, after the separation. An extramarital affair with Lauren would have been the reason for the end of the marriage.

Jeff Bezos is the third richest man in the world, according to the ranking released by Forbes. His net worth is valued at $137.8 billion (about AU$685 billion). In addition to Amazon, the businessman also owns The Washington Post newspaper and Blue Origin, a space exploration company. Philanthropy is also part of his business, as he has pledged to donate part of his fortune to charity.
