Jeff Bezos is dealing with just another common, every day problem most Americans are routinely faced with.
You know, where you are forced to sue the brother of the girlfriend you connected with while the two of you were neighbors but both married to someone else, for allegedly hiding assets that should be used to pay for the attorneys and private detectives you had to hire to prove your girlfriend’s brother was the person that was leaking intimate photos of your private parts to the National Enquirer.
Right? Nothing odd about that.
Here’s a refresher on the sordid mess. Before the Amazon CEO’s relationship with current girlfriend Lauren Sanchez became public, embarrassing, intimate messages Bezos sent to his lover were leaked, and the National Enquirer was on the receiving end of many of them and published them.
Bezos accused Sacnchez’s brother Michael of being behind it the leak, so Michael sued Bezos for defamation.
It was a weak case, the judge threw it out, and ordered Michael Sanches to pay all the attorney’s fees for Bezos, and the hefty price tag it took for his private detectives to determine it was Michael Sanchez behind it all.
The total number was $254,404. So far, Michael Sanchez has not forked over any cash to the richest person in the world, so, Jeff Bezos has now filed suit against his girlfriend’s brother in an attempt to make him pay.
The suit claims Michael Sanchez is hiding assets, specifically, he moved the title of his L.A. home to a shell company to avoid a judgement.
And you thought you had it bad simply trying to get your brother in law to fork over the $40 entry fee for a fantasy football league!
