AceShowbiz - Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez are currently not seeing each other, literally. The lovebirds are said to have agreed to stay apart from each other until both of their own divorces are finalized. In the meantime, the Amazon CEO and the former news anchor talk to each other through phone calls and messages and remain "deeply in love" with each other.
As for the reason why they decide not to spend time together, a source shares to Page Six that "it's mostly to protect the privacy of their children, but also because they felt it was the right thing to do." According to the insider, the pair haven't seen each other since news of their affair earlier this year and will continue to stay that way until "a few weeks," when their divorces are expected to be finalized.
Reps for both Jeff and Lauren have yet to respond to this report.
Report of their affair first hit the web hours after Jeff and estranged wife MacKenzie announced their split, with one publication leaking the racy texts and photos that the two shared to each other. It was reported that her brother, Michael Sanchez, was the one who leaked the pics and got around $200,000 for that, but he debunked the rumor.
"I had nothing to do with leak of the d**k pics. That's the important thing... I never had access. It's clear they were sent to others," he said in an interview with Vanity Fair. "There are, like, 20 d**k pics. Lauren likely shared them with multiple girlfriends, not in a malicious way. I'm not saying I didn't do something. Until I go under oath, what I can tell you now is that ever since April 20, when I met Jeff, my only goal has been to protect Jeff and Lauren."
