The cat is officially out of the bag. Leaked text messages between Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez prove that they were dating before the Amazon billionaire separated from his wife, Mackenzie Bezos.
A few months ago, Jeff and Mackenzie called it quits after 25 years of marriage. But raunchy texts between Jeff and his new girlfriend indicate he was cheating on Mackenzie months before they decided to end things.

The estranged couple celebrated 25 years together at a night club in Miami last September. Some of the text messages, however, were sent all the way back in April. This suggests that Jeff and Sanchez were getting together long before his marriage was over.
“You know what I want?” Jeff allegedly texted Sanchez. “I want to get a little drunk with you tonight. Not falling down. Just a little drunk.”
According to Page Six, the text messages included photos of a shirtless Bezos and an image of his private parts. The racy photos were not published as part of the original story, but the text messages were released, along with their respective dates.
Bezos announced his divorce this past week. An inside source claims that he and Mackenzie have been separated for months and that she knew about his relationship with Sanchez prior to the cheating scandal.
Sources also claim that Sanchez was the one responsible for leaking the text messages. Sanchez reportedly talked to a lot of her friends about the romance and even sent a few of the images to her closest pals.

After receiving the texts, one of Sanchez’s friends released them to the press, much to her embarrassment. Although she may have been responsible for the scandal, sources say that Bezos and Sanchez could not be happier about how things are going.
Unfortunately, Lauren Sanchez has not released a statement about her ongoing relationship with Jeff Bezos. The two made their first public appearance at last weekend’s Golden Globe awards and looked happy to be at each other’s side.
