Before anchorwoman Lauren Sanchez snagged the richest man in the world, she dated former NBA star Derek Fisher (among other men), according to a report on Page Six. The gossip column reports Sanchez and Fisher had an on-again, off-again romance after she split from her NFL star fiancé Anthony Miller.
Miller tells Page Six he didn’t trust Sanchez during the four years they were together. Miller claims he met Sanchez while she covered the Super Bowl as a sports reporter in 1996.
“I couldn’t really trust her. She gets around,” he said, adding that she cheated on him with other guys.
One of those guys was apparently Fisher, who played for the LA Lakers at the time.
A source tells Page Six: “Lauren was with Derek Fisher for a while [after] things went south with Anthony Miller. Then she traded up to ‘NYPD Blue’ star Henry Simmons, and they were engaged. Then she was getting married to Patrick Whitesell.”
Sanchez and Whitesell were married in 2005. They share two minor children. Whitesell is one of the most powerful men in Hollywood.
Fisher also got married in 2005, to Candace Fisher. They divorced in 2016, and he is now engaged to “Basketball Wives” star Gloria Govan, who recently lost custody of her twin sons to former NBA star Matt Barnes.
Fisher now coaches the LA Sparks WNBA team.
Amazon founder Bezos, whose personal wealth is around $140 billion, recently announced his separation from his wife, MacKenzie Bezos, after a tabloid threatened to go public with steamy photos of him and Sanchez together on his yacht.
Bezos denied cheating on his wife with Sanchez. He claimed he and his wife separated over the summer. But The National Enquirer published steamy text messages that prove they were together before the summer.
An attorney for Bezos and MacKenzie confirmed the Amazon boss did not sign a pre-nup agreement prior to marrying MacKenzie. Bezos and MacKenzie have four children.
At least half of his $140 billion net worth is up for grabs in a divorce settlement.
