Amazon CEO Challenges Tabloid Over Alleged Blackmail

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos says tabloid National Enquirer is blackmailing him over nude photos. In a blog post titled “No thank you, Mr. Pecker” (you can’t make this up) the world’s richest man says he was threatened with the publication of nude pics of him and suggestive photos of news anchor Lauren Sanchez, his mistress. Bezos alleges the threats are an attempt to blackmail him into silence over the tabloid’s investigations into his personal life, which Bezos believes are motivated by the parent company’s connections to President Trump.
