On Saturday, it was Woody Harrelson making faces for the entire tennis-watching world to see. On Sunday, it was Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man, making his first public appearance with his girlfriend since his divorce.
The Amazon founder and Lauren Sanchez were photographed sitting behind the royals at the five-hour men’s Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic at the All England Club.
Bezos’ record-setting divorce from MacKenzie Bezos, his wife of 25 years, became official a few days ago, after news leaked earlier this year about his infidelity.
Sanchez, a former TV anchor, also this year filed for divorce from Patrick Whitesell, a Hollywood agent.
Jeff Bezos is definitely familiar with the titans of tennis. In 2001, he paired up with the tennis legend Pete Sampras to play a doubles match against the Microsoft founder Bill Gates and the tennis star Andre Agassi for charity.
This is another major sporting event Bezos has made an appearance at in 2019. He attended a well-known Kentucky Derby eve party earlier this year along with plenty of athletes and musicians.
Bezos and Sanchez were not the only famous, non-royal people in the crowd. The actors Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch also attended the Federer-Djokovic tilt.
