In his bombshell Medium post on Thursday, Jeff Bezos seemed to allege there’s an unsavory connection between the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and American Media Inc., the publisher of the National Enquirer.
Bezos accused AMI of “extortion and blackmail,” claiming it threatened to publish naked photos of him.
The National Enquirer in January 2019 released an exposé on Bezos’ affair with the former news anchor and helicopter pilot Lauren Sanchez. Subsequently, the billionaire owner of Amazon and the Washington Post launched an investigation into how the tabloid obtained intimate information on his relationship with Sanchez. He alleges that AMI attempted to blackmail him into ceasing the inquiry.
