Jeff Bezos Accuses National Enquirer Of Extortion For Threatening To Show Emails Of Naked Photos

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is accusing publisher National Enquirer for extortion and blackmail for threatening to publish sexual photos of billionaire that was texted to his mistress, Lauren Sanchez. 


Jeff Bezos and his long-time wife, MacKenzie, announced their divorce on Jan. 9 after Bezos was seen with his mistress publicly. Parent company of National Enquirer, AMI, insisted that the brand didn't do anything illegal. 


In a statement, AMI stated  "American Media believes fervently that it acted lawfully in the reporting of the story of Mr. Bezos." The CEO of Amazon wrote in a post "In the AMI letters I'm making public, you will see the precise details of their extortionate proposal: They will publish the personal photos unless Gavin de Becker and I make the specific false public statement to the press that we 'have no knowledge or basis for suggesting that AMI's coverage was politically motivated or influenced by political forces."  


National Enquirer is published and owned  by David Pecker, who is close friends with Donald Trump. Trump has been attacking Bezos, because Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post where Trump feels his name is being badly used in the publication. 


Jeff Bezos accused AMI for "weaponizing journalistic privileges" in a blog post. "These communications cement AMI's long-earned reputation for weaponizing journalistic privileges, hiding behind important protections, and ignoring the tenets and purpose of true journalism. Of course I don't want personal photos published, but I also won't participate in their well-known practice of blackmail, political favors, political attacks, and corruption. I prefer to stand up, roll this log over, and see what crawls out," Bezos stated. 


Amazon shares were down 2 percent on Friday's early trade!
