Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in a blog post Thursday claimed to be the target of extortion and blackmail by the publisher of the National Enquirer. Bezos, 55, said the tabloid threatened to publish explicit personal photos of him unless he stopped investigating how the Enquirer obtained texts between him and his mistress. The National Enquirer on Jan. 9 published a story about Bezos and his affair with former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez, who is married. That same day, Bezos announced on Twitter that he and his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie Bezos, were planning to divorce.
