Jeff Bezos sent shirtless selfies, a photograph of his genitals and gushing, sexual text messages to Lauren Sanchez while the pair carried on an eight month affair which involved private jet rendezvous, intimate dinners and sleepovers at each other’s marital homes, it has been claimed.
The Amazon billionaire and his mistress, whose relationship was laid bare by the National Enquirer on Wednesday and Thursday, also stayed in hotels together – including one in Boston hours after the rest of the Bezos family had left.
The magazine, which followed the pair for four months after snapping Sanchez and her sister getting off Bezos’ private jet in October, claims that at one stage, Bezos’ wife of 25 years MacKenzie uncovered their affair when she looked at his plane’s flight manifest and found Sanchez’s name was the only one on the passenger list.
According to the Enquirer’s sources, Bezos is ‘in love’ with Sanchez and has told her, in less explicit language than his other texts: ‘We don’t have to worry about the parachute opening because we are jumping together.
‘We are sharing the parachute and it will land safely. We have chosen each other.’
In addition to going to each other’s homes, he once booked a private bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel for them to spend the night in just five blocks from his marital mansion.
The Enquirer claims that Bezos only announced his divorce on Wednesday morning because he knew it was about to expose his affair with Sanchez.

The magazine also alleges that he tried desperately to stop it from running its series of photographs which document their affair, apparently asking one friend: ‘Can’t I buy the story from them?’
The 54-year-old, who is worth $140billion, has not commented on the story but a source insisted to DailyMail.com that he and Sanchez began seeing each other after he and MacKenzie had parted ways.
In their divorce statement on Wednesday, the couple said they had been under a trial separation and ‘loving exploration’ for some time.
His allegedly raunchy text messages to Sanchez, who is married to Hollywood mega agent Patrick Whitesell and has three children (two with him and one from a previous relationship with a NFL star), date back to April.
In one, he reportedly told the 49-year-old: ‘I love you, alive girl. I will show you with my body, and my lips and my eyes, very soon.’
In another, the magazine claims he said: ‘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.’
Others are more X-rated including one where he is said to have told the former Extra and Fox host: ‘I miss you. I want to kiss you right now and tuck you in slowly and gently.
‘And maybe in the morning wake you up and not be quite so gentle with you.’
In another, he allegedly said: ‘Your energy and ideas and competence and SPIRIT turn me on.
‘You make me better. You’re meant for me.’
Another is said to have read: ‘I am so full of love for you. My heart is growing just so it can have room for you.
‘It’s bigger than it’s ever been and still swelling.’
Other reported remarks include: ‘I want to hold you tight.… I want to kiss your lips…. I love you. I am in love with you,’ and ‘You know what I want? I want to get a little drunk with you tonight. Not falling down. Just a little drunk. I want to talk to you and plan with you. Listen and laugh … I basically WANT TO BE WITH YOU!!! Then I want to fall asleep with you and wake up tomorrow and read the paper with you and have coffee with you.’
In addition to shirtless photographs he took standing in front of mirrors, including one in a steamy room where the magazine claims he was wearing just a towel, he also sent Sanchez an ‘unsparing’ photograph of his genitals which it said was too graphic to publish.
It was previously reported that the pair had been dating since June, months before she separated from her husband, Hollywood mega-agent Patrick Whitesell, and nine months before Bezos announced his split from his wife, MacKenzie, on Twitter.
According to the Enquirer, the pair met several times for illicit trysts as often as six times in two weeks.
Its investigation began after Sanchez was seen getting off his private jet on October 18.
She was wearing a WME hat which represents her husband’s talent agency.
