The current 2nd richest man in the world, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is demanding that Michael Sánchez, his girlfriend’s brother, pay him $1,676,919.50 and another $36.09.23, OYOGist.com has gathered.
The billionaire made the decision after Michael lost a defamation lawsuit against Bezos over claims the billionaire made against Sánchez.
Jeff Bezos and his head of personal security filed a motion with the Los Angeles County Superior Court to make his girlfriend’s brother pay for the fees he racked up while defending himself against the lawsuit.
In February 2020, Sánchez sued Jeff Bezos for defamation on allegations that Bezos claimed that he had leaked his private photos to the press.
To Jeff Bezos’s favor, a judge dismissed the suit declaring that by making the statement, Bezos had not committed a crime.
The drama started on the heels of the much-publicized affair that went on between Bezos and his journalist girlfriend, which led to his divorce from his wife MacKenzie Bezos.
