Billionaire Jeff Bezos made a rare public appearance in Washington, D.C. on Thursday to make a startling pitch: It’s time for humans to start colonizing the moon—and soon.

The founder of Amazon explained that his call for a permanent extraterrestrial population is rooted in his belief that Earth alone cannot sustainably feed, shelter and power billions of human beings.

“Earth is the best planet,” Bezos quipped. “It is not close. This one is really good. Don’t even get me started on Venus.”

Jeff Bezos Publishes Emails From National Enquirer Threatening to Leak Salacious Photos

The dispute between Jeff Bezos and the National Enquirer just took an appropriately tabloid-ish turn.

In a detailed essay posted to Medium, the 55-year-old Amazon founder and owner of The Washington Post alleged that The National Enquirer recently threatened to release racy photos of Bezos and girlfriend Lauren Sanchez. Bezos described the attempt as “extortion and blackmail.”

“I was made an offer I couldn’t refuse,” Bezos wrote. “Or at least that’s what the top people at the National Enquirer thought. I’m glad they thought that, because it emboldened them to put it all in writing.” He added: “I’ve decided to publish exactly what they sent me, despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten.”

Bezos then printed an email exchange, purportedly from Dylan Howard, an employee at American Media, Inc. (AMI), the company that owns the National Enquirer. In the message, Howard notes the publication had acquired several potentially embarrassing photos of Bezos and Sanchez, including “a full-length scantily-clad body shot [of Bezos] with short trunks” and “a naked selfie in a bathroomwhile wearing his wedding ring.”

AMI chairman and CEO David Pecker is a long-time friend of President Donald Trump. Last year, Pecker received immunity for testifying in a federal investigation into his role in payments made to two women who claimed to have had affairs with the president.

Pecker has also sought to forge deep connections with businesses in Saudi Arabia. Bezos said he’d been informed that Pecker was “apoplectic” about the Post‘s recent investigation into the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. “We were approached, verbally at first, with an offer,” Bezos wrote. “They said they had more of my text messages and photos that they would publish if we didn’t stop our investigation.”

Instead, Bezos decided to pre-emptively publish descriptions of the embarrassing materials himself.

Bezos’ missive is the latest in a lengthy feud between the Amazon honcho and the popular supermarket tabloid. Last month, after months of research, the Enquirer published an investigation detailing an affair between Bezos and Sanchez, a news personality and pilot. The report, which included several steamy texts between the couple, was released shortly after Bezos announced he’d split from MacKenzie Bezos, his wife of 25 years.

Earlier this week, the Bezos-owned Washington Post published its own investigation into the Enquirer‘s investigation, trying to determine whether the piece was a “political hit” on Bezos, and how his personal messages were compromised.

The Post‘s coverage apparently didn’t please representatives of the Enquirer. In his essay, Bezos also included an email purportedly sent by an American Media lawyer, demanding a “mutually-agreed upon acknowledgment from the Bezos Parties, released through a mutually-agreeable news outlet, affirming that they have no knowledge or basis for suggesting that AM’s coverage was politically motivated or influenced by political forces.”

Bezos has strived in the past to distance himself from the work of the Post, in order to maintain the paper’s objectivity. He notably published his column not in the newspaper, but on the independently owned website Medium.

But Bezos acknowledged that his ownership of the paper “is a complexifier for me,” adding: “It’s unavoidable that certain powerful people who experience Washington Post news coverage will wrongly conclude I am their enemy. President Trump is one of those people, obvious by his many tweets.”

Still, Bezos wrote, he was determined not to back down on his dealings with tabloid. “Any personal embarrassment AMI could cause me takes a back seat because there’s a much more important matter involved here,” he wrote. “If in my position I can’t stand up to this kind of extortion, how many people can?” He ended his essay with a determined salvo: “I prefer to stand up, roll this log over, and see what crawls out.”

Patrick Whitesell Emerges After Reports That Wife Cheats With Jeff Bezos: Pics!

Putting on a brave face. Patrick Whitesell stepped out for the first time since the news of his wife Lauren Sánchez’s affair with Jeff Bezos broke.

The WME co-CEO appeared carefree while out for a drive in Beverly Hills on Thursday, January 10. Whitesell sported a huge smile and sunglasses behind the wheel of his black Mercedes-Benz.

The National Enquirer broke the news on Wednesday, January 9, that Bezos was cheating on his now-estranged wife, MacKenzie Bezos, with Sánchez. The magazine reported that the Amazon CEO and the former Extra host have been seeing each other for eight months and their spouses found out about the dalliance in the fall.

“Patrick was totally blindsided. He had no idea how serious the affair was or how long it was going on for,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively after the Enquirer’s findings came to light.

The insider noted that Whitesell and Sánchez “were having problems in their marriage for the last year.” However, they “were trying to work things out.”

Meanwhile, another source told Us that the talent agent “introduced Lauren to Jeff and suggested they work together on a documentary.”

Hours before news of the affair came out, Jeff announced his plans to divorce MacKenzie, whom he wed in 1993. “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,” the businessman wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. “We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other. If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again.”

The joint statement continued: “We’ve had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures. Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends.”
