Jeff Bezos Is Allegedly Looking At Buying His Girlfriend A $150 Million Mansion For Valentine's Day

Source  -The richest man in the world is shopping for a love nest in Los Angeles — and he’s not ruling out a nine-figure price tag, The Post has learned.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos has been actively shopping for homes in the Beverly Hills and Bel Air neighborhoods in recent weeks with his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez — and some of the mansions they’ve toured have been listed for more than $100 million, sources said.

That’s an upgrade from last March, when Page Six reported that Bezos, 56, and Sanchez, 50, secretly toured an $88 million Bel Air estate without Bezos’ security team knowing.

“I know Jeff is out there. He’s seen everything that is relevant,” Los Angeles high-end real estate broker Drew Gitlin of Berkshire Hathaway told The Post.

There are fewer than 10 houses in the Los Angeles area on the market at any given time that fit Bezos, Gitlin said.

One of those he has visited was the 10.1-acre estate at 750 Bel Air Road known as “Chartwell,” which recently sold for $150 million, confirmed Drew Mandile of Sotheby’s International Realty, the broker on the property. 

The lovebirds had only been out as a couple since January 2019, after Bezos, worth an estimated $124 billion, announced he was divorcing MacKenzie Bezos, his wife of 25 years — two days after the National Enquirer reportedly reached out for comment about a story it was planning to publish on the Sanchez affair.

How poor is Portnoy, huh? $100 million? Psshhh. God he must feel like such a loser. That’s why I choose to be a hundredaire. Because I don’t want to get into a dick measuring contest with other wealthy people. I prefer the simple life. One where I eat cans of tuna for dinner and look forward to bagel Monday because it “saves me ten bucks.”

Still, a $150 million dollar Valentine’s Day present is a flex I’d like to be able to make. Imagine walking into a Remax office and telling the agent your budget is no budget. Actually think about that for a second. Think about what it would be like to have truly unlimited money. The kind of money where you can dream up the craziest house you can possibly think of and make it come true. Imagine being so wealthy you have to sneak away from your own security to go house shopping because you’re too rich to be alone in public.  Now imagine being the real estate agent on the other end of that. Even if he/she takes a 3% commission, which is on the LOW end of what realtors gets, they’re still making $4.5 million. That’s life changing money.

Whenever I hear a crazy Bezos spending story it reminds me of one of my favorite Warren Buffet quotes of all time. He said, “There are athletes, and then there are the guy’s who sign the athletes’ checks. I’m the guy who signs the checks.” Completely irrelevant to what I’m talking about, but I digress..

Bezos is also looking at a few other behemoths in the LA area…

Other LA homes that could be on Bezos’s radar include Bel Air’s Casa Encantada, an eight-acre estate at 10644 Bellagio Road that has twice set the record for highest residential sale in the nation — first in 1979, for $12.4 million, and then in 2000, when it sold for $94 million.

The 40,000-square-foot mansion with pool house, tennis court and 18-foot ceilings is asking for $225 million, which could make it the second-highest residential sale after hedge fund manager Ken Griffin’s 2019 purchase of four floors at 220 Central Park South for $239 million.

You can read about that one here. Whatever they end up doing, I’m sure Lauren will be happy. Jeff seems like he’s in a really good place lately. I guess it’s tough not to be when you’re worth $130 billion.

PS: Love this.
