Bezos probe concludes mistress’s brother leaked intimate text messages

Private investigators working for Jeff Bezos have determined that the brother of the Amazon chief executive’s mistress leaked the couple’s intimate text messages to the National Enquirer.

That is according to a source who spoke to the Associated Press.

The Enquirer published a story last month that included racy texts between Mr Bezos and former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez.

Mr Bezos said the tabloid later threatened to expose his revealing photos if he did not instruct his private investigators to back off.

The source said those investigators identified Michael Sanchez, a California talent manager, as the person who leaked the texts.
