Jeff Bezos says the National Enquirer’s parent company tried to “blackmail” him by threatening to publish “intimate” photos of the Amazon boss unless his private investigators backed off the newspaper.

The world’s richest person said he was the target of “extortion” by the US tabloid’s publisher, American Media Inc (AMI) whose boss is David Pecker, a friend of President Donald Trump.

It comes after Mr Bezos hired a team of private investigators following a story published by the newspaper detailing his extramarital affair.

He wanted to find out how journalists had got hold of “intimate texts” between himself and former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez.

The investigators working for the billionaire tycoon, who bought The Washington Post in 2013, have suggested the Enquirer’s coverage of his affair was politically motivated.
