Saudi Arabia,Jeff Bezos,Amazon

Prior to that, Bezos had published a post on Medium decrying the Enquirer's methods, which seemed to suggest they were holding the "sexts" hostage to influence Bezos in regards to the Washington Post, which he owns and whose op-ed page is often critical of President Donald Trump.

According to sources with knowledge of what Bezos's investigation uncovered, Lauren Sanchez's brother Michael Sanchez was the individual who was supplying the texts to AMI.

Michael Sanchez did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment on Monday.

The battle between the National Enquirer and Bezos went nuclear when the outlet published a lengthy expose piece on his affair that it proudly presented as its "largest investigation" ever. The Associated Press, whose Tuesday report named Michael Sanchez as the source of the leak, cited a person familiar with the matter. In the interview, attorney Elkan Abramowitz said the source was "well known to both Mr. Bezos and Ms. Sanchez". "We have turned our conclusions over to our attorneys for referral to law enforcement", he told the outlet Sunday, but declined giving further details.


American Media, Inc., which owns the National Enquirer, fired back at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Friday after he publicly accused the publication of extortion and blackmail.

The same day, the Daily Beast reported that multiple sources at AMI, the National Enquirer's parent company, pointed to Michael as the source who leaked the intimate text messages to the tabloid. A person familiar with the matter told the newspaper "The New Kingdom" issue fawning over Prince Mohammed was "done to kiss his ass when he came to visit in the hopes he'd invest in the company and it didn't work".

Jeff Bezos may be minting billions, but he fantasises about being a bartender and making craft cocktails.A look at some fantasies - achieved or otherwise - of other big guns in the business world. The Malaysia-based businessman said, "To hear kids saying I have inspired them. Dreaming is good. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't dream". The airline entrepreneur also said that starting a no-frills airline was also one of his dreams that became a reality and paved the way for other fantasies to be achieved.
