The brother of Jeff Bezos’ mistress is speaking out yet again, this time revealing intimate details of the relationship between his sister and the Amazon billionaire.
In a interview with Vanity Fair, Michael Sanchez says that Bezos and his sister Lauren Sanchez had been discussing marriage in recent months while also claiming that the world’s richest man had sent ’20 dick pics’ to his paramour.
The sometimes manager for his big sister also used the interview to deny claims that he had leaked news of the affair to The National Enquirer.
It was just last Friday that esteemed security Gavin de Becker fingered Michael as the individual who likely alerted American Media president David Pecker and his top deputy Dylan Howard about the affair between Bezos and Sanchez.
The most shocking claim however may be that Bezos and Sanchez considered purchasing AMI to discover who had leaked the story.

Confess: He also admitted that he worked with The National Enquirer before the tabloid broke the story about Bezos’ affair with his sister Lauren Sanchez (Michael and Lauren with their mother at Amazon headquarters in June)
‘We discussed the possibility to buy A.M.I.—not to kill the story, but to find out the source. They said that’s not a bad idea,’ says Michael.
‘We discussed numbers and the name of the LLC that we’d use. It would be called BOBO LCC, that’s the level of detail we went into.’
The BOBO name came from combining Sanchez’s helicopter company Black Opps, with Bezos’ rocket company, Blue Origin.
‘I had nothing to do with leak of the dick pics. That’s the important thing. I never had access. It’s clear they were sent to others. There are, like, 20 dick pics. Lauren likely shared them with multiple girlfriends, not in a malicious way, that’s not her style, but when she’s in love, she got a kick out of sharing them. One time she tried to show me one and I was like, “What the f*** is wrong with you? I don’t want to see that!”‘

Sanchez calls the fd between her lover and Pcker a ‘c***ight,’ claims Michael.
Michael also goes into great detail about those nude texts sent by Bezos to his sister.
‘I had nothing to do with leak of the dick pics. That’s the important thing. I never had access. It’s clear they were sent to others. There are, like, 20 dick pics,’ claims Michael.
‘Lauren likely shared them with multiple girlfriends, not in a malicious way, that’s not her style, but when she’s in love, she got a kick out of sharing them.’
He then adds: ‘One time she tried to show me one and I was like, “What the f*** is wrong with you? I don’t want to see that!”‘
Michael also plays coy at times, at one point saying: ‘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.’
He also clams that Bezos ‘never blinked about losing $70 billion’ in his divorce, after declaring: ‘The truth will come out about my motivations and how much I believe in Jeff and Lauren’s love. It’s a legendary romance that will blow your mind as to just how in love they are.’
In an interview with the Fox News show MediaBuzz over the weekend, Michael said that he had been trying to ‘soften the blow’ of the piece outing the relationship between the world’s richest man and his sister when Bezos’ security consultant ‘launched World War III.’
He did this, according to Michael, by telling Bezos to get out ahead of the story and announce that he an his wife MacKenzie were separating after 26 years of marriage.
Michael said that the statement Bezos released about his ‘long period of loving exploration and trial separation’ was ‘misleading,’ but did not elaborate on that claim.
Lauren and Jeff called me like 911. They were terrified. We discussed the possibility to buy A.M.I.—not to kill the story, but to find out the source. They said that’s not a bad idea. We discussed numbers and the name of the LLC that we’d use. It would be called BOBO, that’s the level of detail we went into.

Michael said that Bezos is a ‘brilliant man who doesn’t bow down to bullies,’ but in this case Gavin de Becker has ‘a strange puppetmaster control control over Jeff.’
He also called de Becker a ‘very powerful bully,’ and blamed him for details of his sister’s affair being made public.
‘Everything Gavin has gotten Jeff to do has only magnified the amplitude of the scandal,’ said Michael.
He went on to state that it is a ‘disgrace that filthy rich and uber powerful men are using the media to take shots at one another.’
De Becker dismissed that criticism, stating that photographers had been tipped off and that hiding his clients from photographers s not part of his job.
This interview occurred just before it was revealed that de Becker’s investigation had concluded that Michael was behind the leaked texts.
Michael has denied that claim, which was first reported by The Daily Beast.

A lawyer for AMI meanwhile described the source on Sunday by stating: ‘The story was given to The National Enquirer by a reliable source that had been giving information to the National Enquirer for seven years prior to this story. It was a source that was well known to both Mr. Bezos and Miss Sanchez.’
They were talking marriage. The three of us had discussed before that, at some point, this was going to be a scandal. My advice was, let’s get to the other side. Our analogy was always that they were landing a 747. I told them, “You’re both pilots and you’ve never landed a 747, but that’s what we’re trying to do here.”‘

His sister is actually the second person close to Michael whose texts have shown up in The National Enquirer recently, with the tabloid also running racy exchanges between Fox Business Network host Charles Payne and Scottie Nell Hughes.
American Media defended the emails sent by the National Enquirer’s Chief Content Officer and the firm’s legal team threatening to publish nude photos of Bezos and Sanchez if he did not drop an investigation into how editors learned of the billionaire’s affair.
‘American Media believes fervently that it acted lawfully in the reporting of the story of Mr. Bezos. Further, at the time of the recent allegations made by Mr. Bezos, it was in good faith negotiations to resolve all matters with him,’ the company said in a statement released on Friday.
‘Nonetheless, in light of the nature of the allegations published by Mr. Bezos, the Board has convened and determined that it should promptly and thoroughly investigate the claims. Upon completion of that investigation, the Board will take whatever appropriate action is necessary.’

The American Media board is comprised of four individuals, including: owner David Pecker; Evan Ratner, a partner at Chatham Asset Management; Barry Schwartz, also a partner at at Chatham Asset Management; and David R. Hughes, the former executive vice president, treasurer and chief financial officer of Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc.
Chatham Asset Management has an 80 percent stake in American Media according to Bloomberg.
Meanwhile, it was revealed on Friday that federal prosecutors were reviewing the emails sent by AMI to Bezos in order to determine if the company violated its immunity deal by blackmailing Bezos.
Bezos meanwhile said that he believed Saudia Arabia played a role in AMI’s decision last week.
‘Several days ago, an AMI leader advised us that Mr. Pecker is “apoplectic” about our investigation. For reasons still to be better understood, the Saudi angle seems to hit a particularly sensitive nerve,’ wrote Bezos in a post on Thursday.
‘A few days after hearing about Mr. Pecker’s apoplexy, we were approached, verbally at first, with an offer. They said they had more of my text messages and photos that they would publish if we didn’t stop our investigation.’
When asked if there was any Saudi involvement in the leaking of Bezos’ texts on Friday, the Saudi Minister for Foreign Affairs Adel Jubeir said ‘I doubt it,’ and then a short while later said ‘no.’
