A new love is like a new life…
If Jürgen Marcus’ song didn’t already exist, it would have to be invented for Jeff Bezos (59).
Until 2019, the Amazon boss was married to his first wife MacKenzie Scott. Their luck lasted 25 years, they have four children together. Since the couple didn’t have a prenuptial agreement, he gave her a $40 billion Amazon stake when they divorced – making MacKenzie Scott the third richest woman in the world.
So Bezos paid a lot for his new love – he had fallen in love with his neighbor Lauren Sánchez (53). With her husband Patrick Whitesell, their two children and a son from another relationship, she lived right next to the Bezos family.
In his new relationship with Lauren Sánchez, the Amazon billionaire went from shy, limp nerd to toned tech titan. Sánchez prescribed him a special diet and 15- to 20-minute daily workouts with a personal trainer.
Bezos avoids ready meals and eats lots of protein, healthy fats and starchy foods. He reduced his body fat percentage to 13 percent (between 16 and 26 percent is normal) and gained 15 kilos of muscle mass. A real muscle morphosis.
Bezos used to be rather reserved, but today he is much more self-confident and looks healthier. The saying “Behind every successful man is a strong woman” fits him perfectly.
Because the American is not dependent on Jeff Bezos’ 130 billion euro fortune. She is successful herself and has assets of at least 30 million euros. She started her career as a journalist at a local TV station.
She received an Emmy for her work as a news anchor for US network Fox Sports Net, co-hosted “Good Day LA”, hosted the US version of “Let’s Dance” and acted in films such as “Fight Club”, “The Day After Tomorrow” and “White House Down” with.
So, like her lover, she knows exactly what it’s like to be in the public eye. They also share a passion for taking to the skies. He founded the space company Blue Origin and was on board a flight into space in 2021.
She trained as a helicopter pilot in 2016 and founded Black Ops Aviation, a production company for filming from the air – as the first woman ever.
The first sparks are said to have flown back and forth in the air between Bezos and Sánchez. In 2018, the Amazon boss hired his neighbor to film. A few helicopter flights together later, they finally became a couple.
Five years later, their love has matured so much that they take the next step. Jeff Bezos not only had the figurehead on the bow of his new 450 million euro mega sailing yacht “Koru” designed according to her model. On board, he is said to have knelt in front of her and proposed marriage – with a ring whose diamond, according to a luxury jeweller, is between 25 and 30 carats and is worth between three and five million euros.
What was left for Lauren Sánchez but to say yes. Whether or not he wants a prenuptial agreement for his second marriage will certainly not matter to her.
