In another text, "I want to smell you, I want to breathe you in". The Amazon founder has been reportedly seeing Lauren Sanchez, a former TV anchor and the estranged wife of Hollywood talent agent Patrick Whitesell.

According to SEC filings, Bezos owns approximately 80 million shares of the company.
