Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was forced to announce his divorce ahead of a tell-all story about his eight-month affair with a former TV presenter, reports The Telegraph.
The National Enquirer revealed on Thursday (January 10) it had followed the billionaire for four months while he was secretly seeing Lauren Sanchez, a former Fox presenter.
The magazine claimed to have obtained texts exchanged between Bezos, 54, and Sanchez, 49, the wife of Hollywood talent agent Patrick Whitesell.
It claimed to have contacted Bezos informing him of their investigation 48 hours before he publicly announced he was divorcing his wife, Mackenzie.
The couple have been married for 25 years and have four children together. Mrs Bezos, a novelist who was one of Amazon's first employees, is expected to become the richest woman in the world after their divorce settlement.
Bezos has an estimated net worth of US$140 billion and under divorce laws in Washington state, where the family lives, couples without an existing agreement split assets equally.
