Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was sending racy sexts to his glamorous neighbor months before announcing the end of his marriage this week, according to a new report.
“I want to smell you, I want to breathe you in. I want to hold you tight.… I want to kiss your lips…. I love you. I am in love with you,” the billionaire messaged former “Extra” anchor Lauren Sanchez on May 13 last year, according to the National Enquirer.
In April, he also texted her, “I love you, alive girl. I will show you with my body, and my lips and my eyes, very soon,” the tabloid reports.
The tech tycoon and his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie, announced the end of their marriage in a tweet Wednesday — right before Page Six revealed that Bezos is now dating Sanchez, the wife of Hollywood talent mogul Patrick Whitesell.
Bezos’ lawyer told the Enquirer it was “widely known” that Bezos and MacKenzie were “long separated.”
But sources told Page Six the couple were spotted celebrating their wedding anniversary at a Miami nightclub as recently as September — months after the Enquirer says the richest man in the world sent these messages to his new flame.
Sources previously told Page Six that Bezos and Sanchez became close in the fall after the TV anchor separated from Whitesell, an agent to stars including Matt Damon and Hugh Jackman.
