Jeff Bezos was sued for defamation by his girlfriend’s brother in a lawsuit accusing the Inc. chief executive officer of falsely claiming the brother provided lurid photographs to the National Enquirer.

The lawsuit was filed late Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court by Michael Sanchez, the brother of Lauren Sanchez and subject of media reports that he was a source for the Enquirer’s splashy report last year revealing the affair between his sister and Bezos. The story has expanded into an international controversy, now involving allegations that Saudi Arabia’s crown prince participated in a hack of Bezos’ phone and an investigation by federal prosecutors in New York.

The lawsuit also names Gavin de Becker, a security consultant who works for Bezos, as a defendant. It accuses Bezos and de Becker of telling journalists that Michael Sanchez provided graphic nude photographs of the Amazon CEO to the tabloid.

In the filing, Michael Sanchez acknowledges he entered a confidential agreement to “cooperate strategically” with American Media Inc., the National Enquirer’s parent company, but said he did so to “get ahead of the story” in an effort to limit the backlash against his sister and Bezos.

He says he didn’t provide the photographs to the Enquirer and couldn’t have been the source for them because he never possessed them.

A lawyer for Bezos, William Isaacson, said Bezos would respond to the accusations in court.

‘Unforgivable Betrayal’

“Michael is my older brother,” Lauren Sanchez said in a statement provided by her lawyer, Terry Bird. “He secretly provided my most personal information to the National Enquirer — a deep and unforgivable betrayal. My family is hurting over this new baseless and untrue lawsuit, and we truly hope my brother finds peace.”

De Becker did not respond to a message seeking comment.

A United Nations report last month accused Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of possible complicity in the hack of Bezos’ phone, based on an analysis conducted by a consulting firm hired by Bezos. Saudi Arabia has denied the allegation, and the report did not link Saudi Arabia’s alleged actions to the Enquirer report.

Federal Case

At the time the Bezos story was published, AMI was already operating under a non-prosecution agreement with the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office, after admitting its role in hush-money payments made to women who allegedly had affairs with President Donald Trump.

In a blog post shortly after the Enquirer’s story about the affair, Bezos accused the tabloid of extortion and blackmail in their handling of the story. That prompted prosecutors to reopen their investigation to determine if AMI had violated its non-prosecution agreement. That investigation was still ongoing as of late last year, according to people familiar with it.

A lot of money does not guarantee good taste, as can be seen in this case.


Supra-National Corporate Power Structure (AKA NWO) war with the nation state is going “hot”. In the other video Alex and Alex are puzzled as to why the UN is investigating this, if you view it in the above context, its so obvious a child can see it. The UN has been the administrative arm of the NWO since Rockefeller donated the land to put the building on, and anyone who has managed to get their head far enough out of their ass to realize what’s actually going on, knows this as they know the sun will rise in the east.… Read more »


Come on guys, if we’re talking about Bezos it should be about his secret underground mini city and 10,000 yr clock nobody on the surface can reach once sealed. Let’s talk about why the elites are building in earth “apocalypse”ehomes/connected tunnels in the new valley of the sun, new Zealand etc.


More that a little truth to this, and at the same time that the US military establishment is talking about “limited tactical nuclear weapons” with a straight face.
God help all the good little globalist climate change whackjobs, they almost ALL cluster in large urban centres, so they can be sure of only rubbing elbows with “their own kind” in the local Starbucks.

Okay I am going to say it because no one else has. Lauren Sanchez looks like Michael Jackson. There are so many gorgeous females who look like actual women. Why on earth did he have to break up his marriage for HER? I do not understand what goes on in the minds of people who drop everything of intrinsic value for the stuff of nightmares like this woman (if you can call her that). It’s really absurd. All else aside.


Funny, I was just looking at the photo and thinking more or less the same thing. Plastic tits and botox lips, cripes, she looks like a blow-up android. If this is the future, I’m gonna go live in a cave.

I wish to share an opinion which I also believe provides a key: The Saudis have teamed with Netanyahu to destroy Israel. Before you regurgitate years of CNN/MSM narratives and a geopolitical mish-mash in protest, hear me out… Why would they want to do that? To manufacture an apocalyptic war that they believe will usher in the anti-christ. Yes, I know this sounds like tin foil hat territory, but I see all these Middle East incongruities of the past decades as bigger than greedy oil, water, natural gas grabs and/or incompetent foreign policies. On the contrary, I believe the bugs… Read more »
