Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez made their relationship official on Sunday, seven months after the philandering spouses were exposed by the National Enquirer.
Sitting courtside at one of the most hallowed venues in sport while two of the greatest players in the history of tennis battled it out was far less interesting to Bezos however than the prospect of kissing his paramour, which he was photographed doing throughout much of the match.
This marks the first time the two have publicly attended an event together, and came just a few days after Bezos finalized his divorce with wife Mackenzie, who walked off with a settlement that included $38 billion worth of Amazon stock.
The two snagged some amazing seats too, winding up just three rows behind Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge.
Tennis has been a big part of Sanchez’s life, as her estranged brother Michael still plays competitively and her estranged husband Patrick Whitesell owns the company that represents Djokovic.

Sanchez was allegedly spotted last week at the annual Allen & Co conference in Sun Valley, though DailyMail.com has yet to confirm that report.
Bezos also attended the annual gathering, but flight records obtained by DailyMail.com show his plane heading in and out of Idaho, making it difficult to confirm whether Sanchez attended the conference or joined him after the event.
He arrived in Sun Valley just before midnight in Tuesday, and on Thursday the plane made a quick round trip to Seattle.
On Friday, Bezos left the conference after just two days. He did not head to Wimbledon though until the last second, arriving approximately an hour before the match began on Sunday.
And while Bezos was able to avoid being pictured at Sun Valley, that was not the case once he arrived at Wimbledon.
The pair seemed ready for the photographers however, in their matching looks from high-end Italian design house Brunello Cucinelli.
Sanchez sprang for the luxury house’s classic $2,500 dress in a striped pattern as well as a $2,500 Napa crossbody bag, while Bezos went with a $895 leisure-fit shirt and $2,500 deconstructed blazer from the luxury brand.
A $350 tie and $225 pocket square added some flourish to Bezos’ look, while Sanchez jazzed up her ensemble with massive diamond stud earrings whose value appeared to be well into the five-figure range.
Once the match is over, the couple will be invited to the clubhouse for lunch, tea and drinks along with the 72 other guests in the Royal Box.
Not among those invited into the box on Sunday however were members of the Middleton family, who despite the slight still manged to grab courtside seats.
The guests who are lucky enough to secure seats in the Royal Box are not invited by the monarchy however, with the decision instead being made by the Chairman of the All England Club.

Quiet on the court: Sanchez and Bezos matches their looks, with the pair both opting for stripes on Sunday
Stripers: Sanchez was outfitted in a $2,500 striped dress from Brunello Cucinelli and massive diamond stud earrings, while Bezos was also outfitted in Brunello, wearing a $895 leisure-fit shirt and $2,500 deconstructed blazer

Bag lady: Sanchez also also carried a Brunello Cucinelli purse, opting for one of the brand’s Napa bags, which retail for around $2500
Who wore it better: Bezos (above staring at a similarly-attired attendee) arrived in England just before the start of the match
Prior to his trip to Sun Valley and then Wimbledon, Bezos spent the day with his kids, much like any other divorced dad.
‘Binged Stranger Things Season 3 yesterday with my kids and a few of their friends. God, Eggos are good, and the show was even better. Awesome season,’ wrote Bezos.
Divorce documents and an SEC filing obtained by DailyMail.com reveal that Bezos transferred shares equal to four percent of the company’s outstanding common stock when his split was finalized by the court.
That could not happen however until 90 days after the initial filing under state law in Washington, where the two own a massive Mercer Island property.
This means that the $35.85 billion settlement Ms. Bezos was reported to be receiving on April 4 was not an accurate sum, with that number drastically increasing and deceasing every time Amazon stock fluctuated over that three-month period.
In the end, Mackenzie managed to pocked an additional $3 billion because of that waiting period, with stock increases putting the value of her stock at $38.3 billion when a King County judge signed the divorce order last Friday.

The Petition for Divorce was filed by Mackenzie on March 28 in King County, Washington.
There were few surprises in that filing, save for the fact that the richest man in the world was still living in the same house as his estranged wife.
‘We were married on September 4, 1993 at Palm Breach Florida,’ read the petition.
‘We currently live in the same household.’
The two at the very least had their space despite being under the same roof, as their marital home in Mercer Island is a $80 million compound with boat house, guest house, docks, and a pool on close to 10 acres of land.
Mackenzie also confirmed that the couple did not have a prenuptial agreement, and that the two parties instead relied on a Separation and Property Settlement Agreement to split their marital assets.
That meant that Mackenzie could have made a case to walk off with more than half of her husband’s wealth, but instead opted not to receive any spousal support or even have her lawyer’s fees covered by her ex.
The lawyers hired to handle the split were also not Hollywood heavy hitters like some reports had initially claimed, and instead two local law firms represented the couple.

On April 4 the pair went public with the news, the same day that the Petition was formally filed in King County.
Mackenzie claimed on Twitter that she handed all of her interests in the Washington Post and space-exploration company Blue Origin to her husband, but that was not detailed in any of eh divorce filings.
The two also had to take a class regarding the parenting of their four children, just like every other divorced couple is required to do in Washington.
One day after Bezos announced he had filed for divorce, Sanchez followed suit.
The two were almost forced to confirm their relationship back in February, when the Enquirer threatened to publish photos of the two.
The images that the Enquirer has obtained, according to an email sent to Bezos,included:
- ‘the ‘below the belt selfie’
- Mr. Bezos face selfie at what appears to be a business meeting; Ms. Sanchez response – a photograph of her smoking a cigar in what appears to be a simulated oral sex scene
- A shirtless Mr. Bezos holding his phone in his left hand — while wearing his wedding ring. He’s wearing either tight black cargo pants or shorts — and his semi-erect manhood is penetrating the zipper of said garment
- A full-length body selfie of Mr. Bezos wearing just a pair of tight black boxer-briefs or trunks, with his phone in his left hand — while wearing his wedding ring
- A selfie of Mr. Bezos fully clothed
- A full-length scantily-clad body shot with short trunks
- A naked selfie in a bathroom — while wearing his wedding ring. Mr. Bezos is wearing nothing but a white towel — and the top of his pubic region can be seen
- Ms. Sanchez wearing a plunging red neckline dress revealing her cleavage and a glimpse of her nether region
- Ms. Sanchez wearing a two-piece red bikini with gold detail dress revealing her cleavage.’
‘Of course I don’t want personal photos published, but I also won’t participate in their well-known practice of blackmail, political favors, political attacks, and corruption,’ wrote Bezos in an open letter at the time.
‘I prefer to stand up, roll this log over, and see what crawls out.’
A few weeks after he published that open letter, it was revealed that Sanchez’s brother had leaked the news of the affair.
The pictures meanwhile never saw the light of day.
