When the richest man in the world Jeff Bezos announced that his marriage to MacKenzie Bezos was over, we learned that he was with Lauren Sanchez. Things got more awkward from there. Lauren’s brother, Michael Sanchez got wrapped up in an alleged plot to bring down Jeff Bezos. The scheme involved Donald Trump, American Media Inc. and its owner David Pecker. Michael is the one who originally leaked Jeff and Lauren’s sexy text messages which led to Jeff revealing his divorce. So allegedly Michael did the same thing with the dick pics, and now he’s suing over the accusations. And yes, we should all file a class-action suit against everyone involved for making us picture the richest dick’s dick.
Michael was accused of selling the text messages and dick pics to the National Enquirer for a cool $200,000. Jeff then accused AMI (who owns the Enquirer) of trying to blackmail him with the pics. The federal government investigated this and confirmed evidence pointed to Michael as the original source. Now, Michael is not happy with how he was painted in all of this. TMZ says that he’s suing Jeff, along with private investigator Gavin de Becker, claiming he was defamed due to false claims he was the source of “graphic texts, some containing nude images of Jeff.” Michael says he was Lauren’s “dutiful brother and manager” at the time of the text scandal and claims to have cooperated with authorities during investigations of the leaks but says that ultimately he was “scapegoated.”
Michael claims to have “suffered substantial harm” and says he was:
“Subjected to an FBI raid at his house in full view of the neighbors, he’s received backlash from friends and business associates.”
He also accuses Jeff of:
“Peddling rumors to reporters that Mr. Sanchez was involved in a conservative conspiracy with high-profile political operatives, including Roger Stone and Carter Page, and the Saudi government to take down Mr. Bezos.”
Michael wants punitive damages in the form of “an amount appropriate to punish and make an example of defendants.” Take away the $13 billion Jeff made the other day!
Jeff had no comment, but Lauren’s attorney gave this statement to TMZ on behalf of her:
“Michael is my older brother. He secretly provided my most personal information to the National Enquirer–a deep and unforgivable betrayal. My family is hurting over this new baseless and untrue lawsuit, and we truly hope my brother finds peace.”
Michael is clearly filing the wrong frivolous lawsuit. He has a much better case trying to sue his sister for: unwanted exposure to Jeff’s penis. How could Lauren inflict Jeff’s penis on her brother like that?! Talk about a familial betrayal.
