Lauren Sanchez and Patrick Whitesell have filed for divorce.
The estranged couple has been married for 13 years — but are now arranging their divorce to be finalised.
According to legal documents, Lauren filed for divorce on Friday, exactly one day after MacKenzie Bezos announced her divorce with Amazon chief, Jeff Bezos, had finalised.
Jeff started dating Lauren last year, and Patrick actually introduced her to Jeff 10 years ago.
Patrick seems to have allowed Lauren to submit the documents and it’s interesting because the documents submitted are the same as Patrick’s — both ask for joint custody of their two children — neither ask for child or spousal support.
The strange element to their divorce is, no lawyer filed the documents — typically in Hollywood, a divorce, like most non-celebrities, has a lawyer that files the legal documents.
We’re told the former couple are on “great terms” and the divorce is more of a “formality” since they are “happy living their new lives”.
