WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- The brother of Jeff Bezos’ girlfriend has allegedly leaked the x-rated self-portraits of the billionaire to a tabloid newspaper for $200,000.
- Lauren Sanchez’s brother denies the claim, saying that American Media, Inc. legally obtained the private photos of Jeff.
- AMI claimed that the private selfies of Jeff Bezos were legally acquired.
Michael Sanchez, the brother of Jeff Bezos’s new partner, has repeatedly said that he had nothing to do with the leaking of the multi-billionaire’s penis photo.
The denial by Michael is amidst the apparent hacking scandal that now involves Saudi Arabia, as reported on Sunday.
Michael, brother of the Amazon head’s girlfriend Lauren Sanchez, has been continually accused the one responsible for the leaking of Bezos’ private self-portraits. He spoke of non-involvement recently as federal prosecutors in Manhattan have reportedly acquired evidence that links the younger Sanchez to the exposure.
Sources told the Wall Street Journal that the prosecutors believe that Michael acquired the photos from his sister. Bezos, who was still legally married at the time of the incident, claimed that Michael used the photos to blackmail him by offering the portraits for $200,000 to the National Enquirer.
As told by the younger Sanchez to The Sunday Telegraph, he acknowledges working with the Enquirer for the story but asserted that the obscene photos didn’t come from him; instead, American Media, Inc. (AMI), Enquirer’s owner, got them through illegal means.
Sanchez also told the UK outlet that he made himself available for all the investigations, and he proved all the time to not having Jeff’s penis selfies.
He further told the paper that legitimate journalists should concentrate on how the AMI got hold of illegally-obtained photos and how it will be used for blackmail.
Michael’s statement pertains to last week’s report that indicates Jeff’s iPhone had been compromised in 2018 through a WhatsApp malware, which allegedly came from Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Crown Prince.
Sanchez then blasted the Wall Street Journal for indicting him right away following the United Nations’ demand for an investigation into the cybersecurity conspiracy between Enquirer and Saudi Arabia’s alleged partnership to pin down Jeff Bezos.
Michael further claimed via the Telegraph that the investigation by the Wall Street Journal continues to be false as deceits and lies from anonymous sources are still on the line despite the UN report’s publication.
Meanwhile, officials for the Kingdom of Saudi have asserted that they found the hacking reports are ridiculous.
Likewise, AMI has denied allegations that they illegally obtained the photos, and said that there was no intention to extort the Amazon chief or anyone.
