A video of Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sánchez interacting with Leonardo DiCaprio at the LACMA Art+Film Gala in Los Angeles went viral over the weekend – as people couldn’t help but notice that the Amazon founder’s girlfriend appeared fixated on the movie star.
In response to the clip, Bezos took to Twitter on Monday to send a playful shot at DiCaprio: “Leo, come over here, I want to show you something… @LeoDiCaprio,” he captioned a photo showing him standing in front of a sign reading “Danger...Fatal drop.”
In January 2019, just days after announcing his divorce from MacKenzie Bezos, rumors spread that the Amazon founder was having an affair with Sanchez, as sources told Page Six that Bezos “has secretly been seeing Sanchez” for at least several months.
The two reportedly met years ago through Sanchez’s ex-husband Patrick Whitesell, a talent agent and co-CEO of William Morris Endeavor. After becoming friends, Bezos hired Sanchez to work on a project for his aerospace company, Blue Origin. However, insiders say their relationship eventually went from professional to romantic. The couple reportedly became closer in the fall of 2018, after Sanchez officially called it quits with her husband.
Bezos finalized his divorce months later, with a settlement that secured MacKenzie $35 billion worth of Amazon stock, making her the third richest woman on the planet.
