The outlet was the first to expose the extramarital relationship between Bezos and Lauren Sanchez in January 2019. The revelation led Bezos to end his decades-long marriage to MacKenzie Bezos.
The lawsuit claimed that Bezos and Lauren Sanchez had been dating for months before the photos were leaked and emphasized that Lauren had a role in leaking their intimate texts and photos. The court document state:
While Mr de Becker's initial asserted theory was that Mr. Sanchez had sold out his sister for $200,000, Mr de Becker soon realized this theory would not hold up because, among other reasons, it was inconceivable that Mr. Sanchez would ruin his relationship with his sister and her current fiance, the richest man in the world, for financial gain
It was only a small section of his lawsuit where he referred to Bezos as Lauren's "current fiance." Meanwhile, Lauren Sanchez was snapped wearing a large ring on her ring finger of the right hand while they were vacationing in St Barth.
The Amazon boss, however, hasn't revealed his engagement to his girlfriend of more than a year. Bezos and Sanchez were first rumored to be dating in January 2019 and were first spotted together in the public in May 2019.

A year later, they got married and in 1994, they moved to Seattle, Washington where Bezos founded Amazon. After around 25 years of married life, Bezos and MacKenzie divorce in April 2019.
