At least one inquiring mind wants to know how the National Enquirer got its hands on Jeff Bezos' racy texts to a woman who is not his wife.
Sources told the site that Bezos, 55, is personally funding a probe into the leak, using his personal security team to look into the matter. Three sources contacted by The Daily Beast familiar with the investigation claim that there was some suspicion that Bezos' phone was hacked, but that it seems unlikely after the preliminary investigation.
There is also no evidence that Sanchez, 49, was involved in the leak, leading Bezos and his team to believe the leak may have been "politically motivated," as Bezos owns The Washington Post, an outlet famously critical of President Donald Trump.
The Daily Beast pointed to that fact that the National Enquirer's chief executive, David Pecker, admitted last month to using the tabloid to "facilitate a hush money payment to one of Trump’s alleged mistresses during the final weeks of the 2016 campaign."
Pecker is reportedly a longtime pal of Trump, and the Enquirer called Bezos a "schmuck" in one of their stories, which insiders claim was much harsher than the magazine's normal coverage of other boldfaced-names — and may echo Trump's gleeful "Jeff Bozo" tweets about the scandal.
Investigators are reportedly looking into anyone with both political ties and access to Bezos' or Sanchez's phones in the probe.
Sources previously told Page Six that Sanchez and Bezos were going strong despite the press scrutiny and allegations that she'd flaunted his messages to friends.
Amazon reps did not respond to requests for comment from The Daily Beast or Fox News on the investigation into the leaked messages.
Bezos tweeted in early January that he and his wife Mackenzie were divorcing. “We want to make people aware of a development in our lives," Bezos wrote. "As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends,” read the statement signed by both of them."
After the tweet, reports came out that Bezos, who in addition to being CEO of Amazon and Blue Origin, had been seeing Sanchez.
