The person who gave the National Enquirer Jeff Bezos' steamy Sexten was the brother of the lover of the Amazon billionaire, according to a report.
It was not known how Lauren Sanchez & # 39; Siblings Michael received the racy messages, but several sources told The Daily Beast that he was the one to take care of them.
Michael Sanchez allegedly believed that the tabloid's January report revealing Bezo's and Lauren's affair had been encouraged by Republican activists, as evidenced by the documents received by the Beast. He also believed that the Enquirer's story was about Bezos had followed with "the knowledge and esteem of President Trump," the beast said, citing the documents he reviewed.
Michael was suspected of having leaked the intimate lyrics between the Amazon founder and Lauren. Shortly after publicly accusing Enquirer's parent company, American Media Inc., Bezos threatened to divulge treacherous images of the illegal couple, unless his investigation was halted as the tabloid received the private text.
The brother was also questioned by Gavin de Becker, the security adviser Bezos had commissioned for his private investigation into the Enquirer.
Sources confirmed The Post on Sunday that the investigation is over now, but they would not say if Michael was the person who submitted the news.
"There are Trumpians in Michael's orbit, and at least one of them was informed of the affair in September 201
No sources who spoke to the beast hinted that Michael hacked his sister's phone, a crime, the news site said. Several insiders said there was no evidence to support this theory.
