AceShowbiz - Jeff Bezos was among the lucky attendees at Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z's private Oscars after-party. But instead of bringing his rumored side chick, Lauren Sanchez, with him, the billionaire was spotted arriving at the bash with another woman.
In pictures which surfaced online, Bezos looked dapper in a classic black-and-white suit while making his way to the party venue. Meanwhile, his brunette companion was dressed in a black dress with ruffles. Outside the bash, the Amazon CEO was pictured talking to Natalie Portman and her husband Benjamin Millepied.
Earlier in the night, Bezos attended Vanity Fair Oscars after-party. While Lauren was nowhere in sight, he was allegedly spotted near her estranged husband, Patrick Whiteshell, though they kept their distance from each other. "They were earshot of each other but never spoke," a source said of the two men to PEOPLE.
Bezos and Sanchez have been keeping low profile ever since their affair scandal hit the internet, though Page Six recently reported that the pair had a secret meet-up in New York City earlier this month. They allegedly got together in one of the four condos Bezos owns in a historic Manhattan building overlooking Central Park. Sanchez was then seen leaving New York to celebrate her son Nikko's 18th birthday in Mexico.
Earlier this month, Bezos broke his silence over the affair rumors by claiming that National Enquirer attempted to extort and blackmail him. As a remainder, the publication was the one which leaked a series of dirty messages that Bezos and Sanchez texted to each other.
Explaining why he decided to speak out against the National Enquirer and its parent company, he said, "Any personal embarrassment AMI could cause me takes a back seat because there's a much more important matter involved here. If in my position I can't stand up to this kind of extortion, how many people can?"
