Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez are reportedly madly in love as they wait to finalize their divorces. While the two have elected to remain apart until their marriages are officially over, they still take time to talk with each other every day.
“Lauren and Jeff talk all the time, but she wants to stay low-key until their divorces are final, when they will be together,” an insider shared.

The insider added that Sanchez has been telling friends that she has not seen Bezos since their affair made headlines back in January. According to Page Six, Sanchez is optimistic that their divorces will be finalized in a few weeks. When that happens, she will finally be able to reunite with her lover and start the next chapter in their lives.
Sanchez and Bezos are staying away from each other out of respect for their children. The source claims that they mutually agreed to stop seeing each other so that their kids could retain a sense of privacy throughout the divorce proceedings.
Sanchez’s divorce from Patrick Whitesell, a high-profile agent in Hollywood, is sealed, though the status of Bezos’ divorce from his wife remains unclear.
Back in January, racy text messages surfaced that showed Bezos had been cheating on his wife with Sanchez for quite some time. It is still unknown who leaked the texts, though Sanchez’s brother, Michael Sanchez has been implicated. There are also rumors that officials in Saudi Arabia leaked the information, though the government has denied any involvement.

Michael has admitted to working with media outlets, but he claims that there were others sources that corroborated his story. There are also reports that Enquirer paid Michael around $200,000 for the texts – allegations he has denied in public. Given all the fallout from the leaks, insiders say that Michael no longer talks to his sister.
Jeff Bezos has remained quiet about the affair. Sanchez has refused to comment as well, though it is clear both parties are looking to end their marriages and move on.
