A "bookish and shy" MacKenzie Tuttle first met Jeff Bezos when she interviewed with him for a job as a research assistant at NY hedge fund D.E. Shaw in 1992.

The magazine claimed that the lovers had been dating since past year and that Bezos met Sanchez for illicit trysts as often as six times in two weeks, took her on exotic holidays on his $65 million private jet and sent her erotic selfies "too explicit to print".

LOS ANGELES, CA - DECEMBER 03: WME's Patrick Whitesell, Lauren Sanchez and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos attend Jeff Bezos and Matt Damon's "Manchester By The Sea" Holiday Party on December 3, 2016 in Los Angeles, California.

It should also be noted, that the Bezos additionally own 400,000 acres of property, which makes them 2 of the biggest landholders in the United States.

National Enquirer who first broke the news, says that the relationship began before both couples separated and they have proof.

He and his wife described each other as "cherished friends" and gave the impression it was amicable.

"We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other", the statement reads.

Sanchez is still married to Hollywood talent mogul husband Patrick Whitesell, and sources say they separated this late previous year.

TMZ also reports that Jeff and MacKenzie did not sign a pre-nuptial agreement before their marriage, which means Jeff's $137 billion fortune, by all rights, will be split in half, making MacKenzie the richest woman in the world.
