Lauren Sanchez, the brother of Jeff Bezos’ mistress, equipped the couple’s racy texts to the National Enquirer, some sources inside AMI, the tabloid’s parent firm, instructed The Daily Beast. One other supply which has been in intensive communication with senior leaders at AMI confirmed that Michael Sanchez first equipped Bezos’ texts to the Enquirer.
The leaked texts, printed last month, included notes from Bezos like, “I wish to odor you, I wish to breathe you in. I need to maintain you tight.” AMI has beforehand refused to establish the supply of the texts. However, a lawyer for the corporate strongly hinted at Sanchez’s function throughout a Sunday morning interview on ABC.
Requested immediately whether or not Sanchez was the supply, Abramowitz mentioned, “I can’t focus on who the supply was. It’s confidential inside AMI.” An AMI spokesperson declined to remark for this story. Requested immediately greater than a half-dozen instances whether or not or not he provided the texts to the Enquirer, Sanchez refused to take action.
As The Daily Beast was the primary to report, Bezos launched his investigation into who leaked the texts. The safety marketing consultant he employed, Gavin de Becker, has repeatedly declined to reveal the findings of his research, together with whether or not or not it had decided Sanchez was the offender. However, he did say the probe is over, and the outcomes will probably be turned over to the authorities.
Paperwork reviewed by The Daily Beast present that Michael Sanchez believed the Enquirer pursued its story about Bezos with “President Trump’s information and appreciation”—a chase inspired, in Sanchez’s estimation, by Republican operatives “who THINK Jeff will get up each morning and has a WaPo assembly to plot its subsequent diabolical assault on President Trump.”
