The National Enquirer made stunning headlines when it revealed information about the private life of Amazon founder and Chief Executive Jeff Bezos. Now the publication is ending speculation about the source of that information.
American Media Inc. is the publisher of the National Enquirer and revealed that there was only a single source for the Bezos information and that source was Michael Sanchez, brother to Lauren Sanchez who is the now-girlfriend of Bezos.
AMI admitted that Michael Sanchez “tipped the National Enquirer off to the affair on Sept. 10, 2018, and over the course of four months provided all of the materials for our investigation,” adding “there was no involvement by any third party whatsoever.”
This declaration comes as AMI seeks to end rumors started by Bezos security chief Gavin De Becker. De Becker alleged that private information from Bezos’s phone had been accessed by Saudi Arabia’s government.
