The steaming text messages from Jeff Bezos to the TV anchor with which he had a relationship for eight months before his divorce from his wife became public, were revealed Thursday and contain comments from the billionaire such as & # 39; I want to smell you & # 39 ; and & # 39; I want to breathe you in & # 39 ;.
The messages, which were published by The National Enquirer, date from April 2018, nine months before Bezos announced his divorce from his wife MacKenzie.
In them he told Lauren Sanchez, the former anchor of Fox 11 & # 39; s Good Day, among other things: I love you, living girl.
& # 39; I will show you soon with my body and my lips and eyes, & # 39; he said in the text.
In another he said: "I want to hold you tight … I want to kiss your lips …. I love you. I love you. & # 39;
Earlier it was reported that the couple had been dating since June, months before she separated from her husband, Hollywood agent Patrick Whitesell, and nine months before Bezos announced his divorce from his wife, MacKenzie, on Twitter.
Bezos, 54, and Sanchez, 49, have denied both denial of their husbands since the details of their romance appeared on Wednesday night.
According to the Enquirer, the couple came together several times for six times in two weeks against illegal rides.
He reportedly took her on vacation in his $ 65 million private jet and sent her erotic selfies that & # 39; too explicitly & # 39; were even for the magazine to print.
A source near Bezos told DailyMail.com that the Amazon founder only started to see Sanchez after he was divorced from his wife – although the National Enquirer claims that the affair has continued behind the backs of their partners.

Bezos released a statement that revealed the split on his Twitter account yesterday in an effort to put the news in a favorable light.
The National Enquirer publishes photo's of Bezos and Sanchez in this edition, which is on the stands on Thursday. Bezos announced his divorce in anticipation of the release of the photos
He and his wife described each other as & cherished friends & # 39; and gave the impression that it was amicable.
& # 39; If we had known that we would divorce after 25 years, we would do everything again, "they said in a joint statement that he published on Twitter.
The Enquirer says that for four months it left Bezos and Sanchez in what they do the largest research & # 39; in the history of the magazine mentions, in which the photographer the lovebirds' perverted on their husbands & # 39; got caught.
They say, however, that they have evidence of the affair that began to stare several months before their investigation.
They say they followed Bezos and Sanchez in five states and 40,000 miles, followed them in private jets, chic limousines, helicopter flights, romantic walks, five-star hotel guides, intimate dinner dates and & # 39; quality time & # 39; in hidden love nests. & # 39;
The magazine also claims that they have met at the same hotel in Boston, Massachusetts, where the Bezos family stayed when they visited their son on MIT before the parents' day.
Sanchez is married to Hollywood talent magnate, husband Patrick Whitesell, and sources say that they & # 39; this fall & # 39; divorced – months after her exchanges with Bezos began.
Sanchez, pictured above on a holiday in 2012, has three children from two relationships. They are between 10 and 17 years old

& # 39; Patrick and Lauren Sanchez have been divorced for a while.
& # 39; Their marriage has been going on for a while and they have tried hard to solve things, but in autumn they were officially separated, & # 39; told a source to the magazine.
The couple has two children together, a 12-year-old son and a 10-year-old daughter.
Sanchez has another child from her romance with former NFL tight end Tony Gonzalez. Their son was born in 2001.
In 2003 she dated the former actor Henry Simmons and the couple was committed but disbanded.
She married Whitesell in 2005, the CEO of the WME entertainment agency.

She worked for many years as a TV reporter before moving to the film industry.
Now she combines her passion for flying helicopters with film production with her company, Black Ops Aviation, that shoots aerial photographs.
In an interview in May 2018 she explained: & # 39; When I first became a reporter, I did it because there was no one else, I thought, which looked like me. & # 39;
Bezos and Sanchez were together with her husband Whitesell during a festival for the Amazon movie Manchester by the Sea in 2016 together.
Whitesell is a CEO of William Morris Endeavor whose clients include Michelle Williams, one of the stars of the film.
The two couples have known each other for years, and have grown up close because they both have homes in Seattle.
In their statement on Wednesday, Jeff and MacKenzie said they had a & # 39; trial separation & # 39; had gone through.
& # 39; As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and separation of processes we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends, & # 39; according to the statement.
& # 39; If we had known that we would divorce after 25 years, we would do it all over again. & # 39;
Bezos has a value of almost $ 140 billion. The statement did not mention how the two would split that fortune, although experts thought it had already been wiped out.
There was no sign of Sanchez in her house in Beverly Hills on Wednesday when the divorce from Bezos was announced
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and writer MacKenzie Bezos have announced that they are divorcing, through a joint statement on Wednesday, after 25 years of marriage. They are shown on the left in 2003 and are depicted to the right of the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar party in Beverly Hills, California in March.
"As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends," said the statement on Jeff's Twitter account. placed on Wednesday. & # 39; If we had known that we would divorce after 25 years, we would do it again & # 39;
A large part of that amount comes from its 16 percent share in Amazon, which briefly became the second US-based company to reach $ 1 trillion in September, behind Apple in August.
The share of Amazon fell Wednesday to $ 2.84 and closed at $ 1,659.42.
Bezos still wore his wedding ring at the Golden Globes on Sunday
That gave Amazon a market value of $ 811 billion, more than any other publicly traded company in the US. The company passed Microsoft this week to become the world's largest publicly traded company by market capitalization.
The divorce should have no material impact on the company and its shares, said Thomas Forte, an analyst at DA Davidson & Co.
Amazon Vice President Corporate Communications Drew Herdener told DailyMail.com in a statement: "Jeff remains focused on and involved in all aspects of Amazon."
Twice author MacKenzie Bezos, 48, who won an American Book Award in 2006, was one of Amazon's first employees at the time of founding, approving the bookkeeping for the start-up.

Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos married in 1993, one year before he founded Amazon, starting in 1994 from a garage in Seattle. Jeff is portrayed with piles of books in 1997
The two, both six years of graduate from the University of Princeton, live in Washington, a community owned state, and that means that all assets acquired by one of the two spouses during the marriage are split equally, unless there are marital conditions that determine otherwise .
The distribution of Bezos's assets will be complicated because the two joint ventures will continue to pursue, according to the joint statement.
The shares of Amazon fell by 1.49 percent Thursday morning
"We are incredibly lucky that we have found each other and are extremely grateful for each of the years that we are married together," the statement said.
"We have had such a wonderful life together as a married couple and we also see beautiful future prospects, like parents, friends, partners in companies and projects, and as individuals who pursue adventures and adventures.
& # 39; Although the labels may be different, we remain a family and we remain beloved friends. & # 39;
Toby Yerburgh, partner and head of the family at Collyer Bristow LLP, told DailyMail.com:
& # 39; Not since the & # 39; deliberate decoupling & statement from Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have released a high profile couple such a positive and positive statement announcing their divorce as that released today by Jeff Bezos and his wife.
& # 39; Such agreed statements are often part of the negotiation of a financial split and are linked to an NDA. They show how important lawyers of divorce couples with a high profile work who go hand in hand with their PR agents. & # 39;
Jeff Bezos has a value of almost $ 140 billion. The statement did not mention how the two will split that fort.

Robot series maker Sam Esmail (left), head of Amazon Studios Jennifer Salke (second from left), and the star of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Rachel Brosnahan (second from the right)
Most of the assets currently at stake in this financial split include nearly 79 million Amazon shares, currently worth about $ 130 billion, along with Rocket ship maker Blue Origin and The Washington Post.
According to information from Refinitiv Eikon, MacKenzie does not own Amazon shares directly.
Liat Sadler, a lawyer in San Francisco, noted that spouses owe a fiduciary duty to each other.
& # 39; They have the duty not to waste or devalue marital funds, and to keep the value of matrimonial goods as high as possible, & # 39; she said.
I do not think there is a concern for shareholders about what will happen to Amazon because of the divorce. & # 39;
Sadler said that the main options for the pair regarding Amazon's shares were for Jeff to buy his wife or for MacKenzie to keep shares.
& # 39; If she trusts that he will manage Amazon well, he or she must pay her for her share in the shares, or they can enter into a more complicated agreement in which she keeps the shares and retains voting rights, & # 39; she said.
It is unlikely that many details about the divorce will be made public, said the New York lawyer Bernard Clair, who represents Judith Giuliani in her divorce with the former mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani.
& # 39; These two are divorced for a not insignificant time, and I assume that they … had taken the time to reach a confidential private agreement, & # 39; said Clair.
Less than two years ago Jeff and MacKenzie could not love each other during their holiday in Italy in May 2017
Less than two years ago the two could not keep their hands off each other during their holiday in Italy in May 2017.
And now, on Sunday night, Jeff smiled at the Golden Globe Awards, looking for celebrities without MacKenzie next to him.
Amazon Prime Video & # 39; hosted its own afterparty at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 6 in Beverly Hills, where he was photographed with Mr. Robot series maker Sam Esmail, head of Amazon Studios Jennifer Salke, and the star of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Rachel Brosnahan.
Jeff came from almost nothing to become the homemade billionaire, a hundred times more than he is today.
He was born as a 16-year-old mother, Jacklyn Gise, and a deadly father, Ted Jorgensen, in Texas on January 12, 1964, as Jeffrey Preston Jorgensen.
When Jeff was 17 months old, his mother separated from Jorgensen, who belonged to a unicycle gang and earned $ 1.25 per hour in a store, according to CNBC.
About three years later Gise remarried with Miguel Bezos in 1968.
Miguel arrived in Miami from Cuba in 1962 and he only knew one word of English: & # 39; hamburger & # 39 ;.
When Jeff was four, Jorgensen agreed to have Miguel adopt his son, and so Jeff Jeffrey became Preston Bezos.
& # 39; Although the labels may be different, we remain a family and we remain beloved friends, "the statement read. Jeff (second from right) and MacKenzie Bezos (third from left) are pictured with their three sons, of which the oldest is Preston, 18 (second from left), and their adopted daughter from China (third from right), attending the premiere of & # 39; Star Trek Beyond & # 39; from Paramount Pictures at Embarcadero Marina Park South on July 20, 2016 in San Diego, California
MacKenzie was born as MacKenzie S. Tuttle on April 7, 1970 in San Francisco, California. Her father was father of a financial planner and she had a mother who was at home.
In high school she moved to the east and in 1988 she graduated from the Hotchkiss School in Connecticut.
MacKenzie graduated from the University of Princeton with an undergraduate degree in English, with the highest honor in 1992.
She studied Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Toni Morrison at the university, who said she was one of the best students I've ever had in creative writing lessons & # 39 ;.
Morrison, who was MacKenzie's thesis advisor, was the one who put her in touch with the famous literary agent Amanda & # 39; Binky & # 39; Urban.
Jeff also graduated from Princeton, but in 1986, and the two never met while studying.
Jeff and MacKenzie met at work in New York City in 1992. Jeff was the first to interview MacKenzie at the investment management firm DE Shaw.
At that time Jeff was a vice president there and MacKenzie came on board as a research assistant, reported Business Insider.
The two Princeton graduates were engaged three months later and married in 1993.
Transformation: when Bezos' net assets reached $ 105.1 billion in January 2018, CNN reported that it was the richest person in history. Jeff is shown on the left at a press conference on August 23, 2000 and on the right at the Allen & Co. Media and Technology Conference in Sun Valley, Idaho on July 13, 2017
That was all before Jeff founded, which he started in 1994 from a garage in Seattle. Since then, the two have experienced a striking style transformation.
Portraits of the CEO of Amazon who were taken in 1997 – the year in which his company went public – show him how he wears a blue button-down shirt, pleated khaki pants and a black leather wristwatch while he's next to stacks of books poses.
Fast forward to 2017, and Jeff set fire to the Internet as he came to the annual Allen & Company Sun Valley conference with bulging muscles peeking from his polo shirt.
With his shaven head and tinted sunglasses – plus the bulging biceps – many on Twitter could not compare the Amazon CEO with the action star Vin Diesel.
Gone were Jeff's baggy shirts and receding hairline, and there, among the richest and most influential people in the world, he seemed to be reborn.
Meanwhile, MacKenzie went from frumpy divorces to sleek, tight-fitting sheath dresses which she often accessorizes with a pair of classic pumps.
The two were most recently seen at the funeral of Senator John McCain in early September. Jeff wore a classic black suit with a blue tie, while MacKenzie wore a long sleeve with black shell and matching heels.
Speaking about their first years at an event in Berlin in April, Jeff said that MacKenzie's support was instrumental when he founded Amazon and that she ran the bookkeeping for the company in the first year.
& # 39; If you have loving and supportive people in your life, such as MacKenzie, my parents, my grandfather, my grandmother, you can take risks & # 39 ;, & # 39 ;, he said during the event.
If the two divorces in their home state are Washington, their possessions may be subject to the splitting laws of the community property.
In Washington, all income earned and property acquired by one of the spouses during a marriage is the property of both spouses, and will be split equally by divorce, unless that standard rule is canceled with a prenuptial agreement.
But since the fortune of the duo was amassed after they met, it is very likely that they did not prepare a pre-nup before they got married.
Jeff's wealth has grown exponentially over the last five years, with Forbes estimating its net worth at $ 32 billion in March 2014.
When his net worth reached $ 105.1 billion in January 2018, CNN reported that Jeff was the richest person in history.
Now he is worth $ 136.9 billion, and he and MacKenzie would own more land, than almost anyone in the United States, according to Business Insider.
Als zijn vermogen van 137 miljard dollar gelijk wordt verdeeld met MacKenzie, zou dat betekenen dat Jeff de titel zou verliezen als 's werelds rijkste persoon, en MacKenzie zou de titel krijgen van' s werelds rijkste vrouw.
Maar zelfs met een vermogen van $ 69 miljard zou de oprichter van Amazon nog steeds de vijfde rijkste persoon zijn, volgens de Bloomberg Billionaire Index.
De twee, waarvan bekend is dat ze relatief bescheiden leven, ondanks de monumentale rijkdom die ze de afgelopen jaren hebben verworven, woonden naar verluidt in een huurhuis met één slaapkamer in Seattle tot 1999. Tot op heden bezitten ze nu ten minste vijf huizen in het hele land .
Gemeenschapsbezit is de standaardregel in Washington, wat betekent dat alle activa die door een van de partners tijdens een huwelijk zijn verkregen, gelijkelijk worden gesplitst in echtscheiding, maar dat kan worden uitgesloten met een huwelijkse voorwaarden. Jeff en MacKenzie bezitten twee huizen in Medina, een exclusieve buitenwijk van Seattle, waarvan een luchtfoto wordt getoond. Ze betaalden in 1998 $ 10 miljoen voor het onroerend goed
Aan de westkust bezitten ze twee huizen in Medina, Washington, een exclusieve buitenwijk van Seattle, waar ook Bill Gates is gevestigd.
Ze betaalden in 1998 $ 10 miljoen voor 5,3 hectare onroerend goed, volgens de Wall Street Journal.
One of the houses covers 20,600 square feet with five bedrooms and five bathrooms. The other is 8,300 square feet with five bedrooms and five bathrooms. Het laatste gerucht gaat dat het 53 miljoen dollar heeft gekost.
The 310-foot estate of Lake Washington coastline underwent a $ 28 million renovation in 2010.

Tot op heden, de twee eigen vijf huizen in het hele land, waaronder dit tweede huis getoond in Beverly Hills die buiten de markt van een buur werd verworven voor $ 12,9 miljoen
In Beverly Hills hebben de twee vanaf 2007 bijgedragen aan een originele aankoop in Zuid-Californië die hen $ 24,45 miljoen kostte door in 2015 een aangrenzend huis te kopen in een off-market-verkoop van een buurman voor $ 12,9 miljoen.
Het eerste huis is een zevenbed, zeven-baden Spaans herenhuis met een serre, een tennisbaan, een zwembad, een garage voor zes auto's en vier fonteinen.
Buren reportedly contained A-listers Jimmy Stewart, Donna Reed and Walter Matthau.
Het tweede huis is veel bescheidener op slechts 4.568 vierkante meter met vier slaapkamers.
Het grootste deel van het landbezit van het duo bevindt zich in West-Texas, waar de familie een geschatte 400.000 hectare bezit in de districten Culberson en Hudspeth ten oosten van El Paso. Een van de bedrijven is een 30.000 hectare grote ranch van figuur 2 buiten Van Horn (op een luchtfoto te zien)
Figuur 2 is ook de thuisbasis van Jeff Bezos 'ruimteverkenningsbedrijf Blue Origin, dat in 2001 werd opgericht
De meeste grondposities van Jeff en MacKenzie bevinden zich in West-Texas, waar de clan een geschatte 400.000 hectare bezit in de provincies Culberson en Hudspeth, ten oosten van El Paso.
Most of the country in Texas was purchased using limited companies named after famous explorers, according to the Wall Street Journal.
It includes the 30,000-acre Figure 2 ranch of the family outside Van Horn, which serves as a reminder of the summers Jeff spent on growing up his grandparents on the farm.
Figure 2 serves as the home base for Jeff's private space company Blue Origin, which was founded in 2001.
Een deel van het nettovermogen van het duo komt van Blue Origin, dat wordt gewaardeerd op ongeveer $ 1 miljard tot $ 28 miljard.
It is difficult to determine the specific value of the company because of the lack of data about the company, and the fact that Jeff is the sole shareholder, told Chad Anderson, CEO of the Space Angels investment fund, to Bloomberg.
Jeff said in April 2017 that he would finance Blue Origin by selling $ 1 billion a year to Amazon shares.
De Bezos betaalden in 2016 $ 23 miljoen voor het voormalige Textielmuseum in Kalorama, Washington, DC
De ruimte werd gebouwd in 1912 en bezet een plek op het nationaal register van historische plaatsen
Aan de oostkust bezitten Jeff en MacKenzie ook onroerend goed in Washington, DC.
In 2016 daalde Bezos $ 23 miljoen op een vroeger textielmuseum in de buurt Kalorama van Washington, DC.
The 27,000 square feet of space was built in 1912 and occupied a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.
Kalorma staat bekend als een enclave voor Washington power-spelers, waaronder de Obamas, die een nabijgelegen huis van $ 5.3 miljoen bezitten, evenals Ivanka Trump en Jared Kushner.
Jeff's other big investment in the capital is The Washington Post, which he bought in August 2013 for $ 250 million. The paper is included in its estimated net worth.
De twee kochten drie appartementen in het Century-gebouw op 25 Central Park West (foto) in de Upper West Side in New York in 1999 onder een LLC genaamd 'Jetima'
De aankoop van het huis in New York City in het afgebeelde gebouw was van voormalig Sony Music-hoofd Tommy Mottola voor $ 7,65 miljoen
En in Manhattan kochten de twee drie appartementen in het Century-gebouw op 25 Central Park West in de Upper West Side in New York in 1999 onder een LLC genaamd 'Jetima'.
De aankoop was van het voormalige Tommy Mottola, hoofd van Sony Music, voor $ 7,65 miljoen.
Jeff en MacKenzie delen vier kinderen, waaronder drie zonen en een dochter, die ze uit China hebben geadopteerd. Hun oudste kind, Preston, werd in maart 18.
MacKenzie is de auteur van 'The Testing of Luther Albright', een psychologische roman over de uitdagingen waarvoor een vader van Sacramento, Californië en zijn gezin zich geplaatst zien na een aardbeving, die haar in 2006 de American Book Award heeft opgeleverd.
In 2014 lanceerde ze Bystander Revolution, een anti-pestorganisatie.
In september engageerde Jeff $ 2 miljard via het Bezos Day One Fund om dakloze gezinnen te helpen en met het starten van kleuterscholen voor gemeenschappen met lage inkomens. In 2017, he had gathered ideas on Twitter for ways to donate part of his wealth.
Afgelopen januari schonk het echtpaar $ 33 miljoen om universiteitsbeurzen te financieren voor Amerikaanse middelbare scholieren met een uitgestelde actie voor de status van de jeugd (DACA), een programma uit het tijdperk van de bescherming van jonge immigranten die hun ouders illegaal naar de Verenigde Staten hebben gebracht.
In 2012 hebben ze $ 2,5 miljoen gedoneerd aan een campagne van de staat Washington om homohuwelijken daar te legaliseren.
In november koos Amazon de financiële en politieke hoofdsteden van Amerika voor enorme nieuwe kantoren, die zich aftakelden van de thuisbasis in Seattle met plannen om meer dan 25.000 banen te creëren in zowel New York City als net buiten Washington, DC.

Jeff en MacKenzie worden voorgesteld op de Amazon Golden Globes After Party in Los Angeles op 8 januari 2017
Vrouw die hem hielp een webreus te maken
Zonder MacKenzie Bezos heeft Amazon misschien nooit bestaan. Ze zou haar man Jeff hebben aangemoedigd om het hedge fund te verlaten waar ze begin jaren negentig samenwerkten om zijn idee voor een online boekhandelaar uit te proberen.
Een kwart eeuw later heeft Amazon een revolutie teweeggebracht in de internetverkoop en MacKenzie speelde een grote rol. Maar de 48-jarige schrijver zei dat ze haar fortuin ziet als afkomstig van het hebben van liefhebbende ouders en haar familie, niet van haar rijkdom.
Terwijl ze zelden interviews afneemt, gaf mevrouw Bezos ooit een boek over haar man een eensterrenrecensie op Amazon omdat het 'veel te veel onnauwkeurigheden' had.
Mevrouw Bezos werd geboren als MacKenzie Tuttle en studeerde tijdens Pulitzer Prize-winnende auteur Toni Morrison toen hij in Princeton was. Ze ontmoette haar toekomstige echtgenoot toen ze werkzaam waren bij vermogensbeheerder DE Shaw, waar hij vice-president was en zij onderzoeksassistent was.
Hij interviewde haar en ze begonnen meteen. Ze vroeg hem om te lunchen en drie maanden later waren ze verloofd; drie maanden later trouwden ze.
In een interview met Vogue in 2013 zei mevrouw Bezos dat ze ervan hield om haar toekomstige echtgenoot te horen lachen in het kantoor naast haar, dat ze 'fantastisch' noemde – anderen hebben gezegd dat het angstaanjagend klinkt.
Het echtpaar heeft drie zonen en een geadopteerde dochter uit China en heeft ooit homeschooling geprobeerd, zonder kindermeisjes. Een vriend zei: 'Ze zouden het slecht vinden om kinderen groot te brengen die geïsoleerd zijn door hun rijkdom.'
