From Lauren Sanchez to wild superyacht parties – is Jeff Bezos having the best time of his life?

Here’s an epic understatement: Jeff Bezos has had a busy year.The world’s richest man has continued to helm Amazon and invest in advancements like space exploration. But he may be less proud of the way his personal life has overshadowed his professional achievements.In 2019 Bezos’ personal life became subject to a harsher shade of spotlit glare. Within days of finalising his divorce to wife MacKenzie Bezos in July, he stepped out in earnest with new girlfriend Lauren Sanchez – beginning a long summer of international travel and extravagant excess.

And, what do you wear if you’re a billionaire taking trips to Venice and yachting around the coast of Spain? In Bezos’ case, it looks like the answer is octopus-print Vilebrequin swim trunks and Prada flip flops that cost roughly US$500.

Here’s a look at what Bezos has been up to this summer, from the exotic locales he’s visited to the famous friends he’s spent time with. A company representative declined to comment on Bezos’ summer travels when reached by Business Insider.

In January, Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos announced that they were divorcing after 25 years of marriage. Their record-breaking divorce agreement was finalized in July, kick-starting a new phase of life for the Amazon CEO.

The settlement left MacKenzie, a novelist, with a roughly US$37 billion stake in Amazon and made her the third-richest woman in the world. Jeff is still the richest man in the world.

The settlement left MacKenzie, a novelist, with a roughly US$37 billion stake in Amazon and made her the third-richest woman in the world. Jeff is still the richest man in the world.

That new phase of Bezos’ life includes exclusive events and travelling extensively with his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez.

In addition to being a former TV anchor, Sanchez is a licensed helicopter pilot who also founded an aerial filming company.

Bezos started the summer early by attending the Met Gala in May. While he didn’t participate in the “camp” theme, he did mingle with several members of the Kardashian family – including sisters Kim, Kendall and Kylie, as well as Kanye West – and Jared Leto.

While Bezos was in New York City for the first Monday in May, he spent the weekend before in Louisville at the Kentucky Derby.

While there, he attended a gala and met the superstar NFL quarterback Tom Brady.

Later in the month, he rubbed elbows with Hillary Clinton, David Letterman, Michael Bloomberg and Oprah Winfrey at the Statue of Liberty Museum opening.

He also spent time with close friends like the billionaire Barry Diller and his designer wife, Diane von Furstenberg, according to The Wall Street Journal.Then Bezos and Sanchez went to Wimbledon in early July.The pair sat behind the royals at the five-hour men’s Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic (incidentally, the richest and highest paid tennis players, ever, respectively).

The happy couple were all smiles at their first public post-divorce outing.

Photos of the couple at the event show them laughing and whispering to each other.

Bezos and Sanchez weren’t the only famous faces in the crowd that day — Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch were also at the match.

Since then, Bezos and Sanchez have been travelling all over together. In early August, they were pictured partying with the entertainment mogul David Geffen aboard his superyacht off the coast of Spain, in the Balearic Islands.

Like many people with money, Bezos likes to associate with powerful figures, such as Hillary Clinton.

He also spent time with close friends like the billionaire Barry Diller and his designer wife, Diane von Furstenberg, according to The Wall Street Journal.Then Bezos and Sanchez went to Wimbledon in early July.The pair sat behind the royals at the five-hour men’s Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic (incidentally, the richest and highest paid tennis players, ever, respectively).

Bezos and Sanchez weren’t the only famous faces in the crowd that day — Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch were also at the match.

Since then, Bezos and Sanchez have been travelling all over together. In early August, they were pictured partying with the entertainment mogul David Geffen aboard his superyacht off the coast of Spain, in the Balearic Islands.

Other guests on Geffen’s megayacht, the Rising Sun, included former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein and the founder of Thrive Capital, Josh Kushner, along with his supermodel wife, Karlie Kloss.

Geffen’s Rising Sun, which reportedly cost US$590 million, can accommodate 18 guests and even has a basketball court.

When Bezos was spotted aboard, he was already making headlines when reports surfaced that he owned a US$400 million megayacht himself.

Photos of the yacht in question went viral after being spotted off the coast of Turkey, but Amazon denied that it belonged to its boss.

In any case, Bezos continued to spend plenty of time on yachts this summer. Shortly after cruising the Balearics with Geffen, he and Sanchez were seen off the coast of Italy on Diller and von Furstenberg’s superyacht – the largest privately owned sailing yacht in the world, at 305 ft (93 metres), according to Architectural Digest.

The two couples spent time exploring Venice, Page Six reported.

Not much is known about the yacht, but it is said to have a glass staircase and a private jacuzzi and can accommodate up to 16 guests.

That means there was plenty of room for other guests to join the outing. According to reports, the entrepreneur Ricky Van Veen and the movie producer Jason Blum were on board too.

Bezos also partied with Katy Perry and Lil Nas X in Seattle at the end of August. The two celebrities performed at a concert for roughly 45,000 Amazon employees to celebrate a successful Prime Day.

Bezos even threw on the graffiti jacket Lil Nas X wore during his performance for a fun Instagram post.

Now the question is: Where will Bezos be spending his winter months?
