With tons of money, an enviable empire, and a gorgeous girlfriend – you wouldn’t imagine Jeff Bezos going green with envy. However, making him fume a bit much recently was Leonardo Di Caprio, who caught Lauren Sanchez’s eye at the 10th Annual Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Art and Film Gala. Yes, that’s right!

A viral clip from the event shows the Amazon CEO’s girlfriend visibly ‘thirsting’ over DiCaprio, 46, while seemingly ignoring her partner Bezos, 57, who was standing right beside her. In response to the clip, Bezos called out to Di Caprio on Twitter and jokingly threatened to throw him off a cliff.
The entrepreneur wrote, “Leo, come over here; I want to show you something… @LeoDiCaprio,” alongside an image of himself posing next to a sign that reads: ‘Danger! Steep cliff, fatal drop.’ Well, someone’s jealous here!

Details of the viral clip:
The clip from the 10th Annual Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Art and Film Gala was uploaded by user @2cooI2blog and has received more than 10.2 million times. In a long-sleeve silver gown and platform heels, it shows Sanchez leaning in towards DiCaprio and smiling as they speak to one another.
While the exact contents of the conversation cannot be heard, Sanchez’s grinning and flirtatious gesturing have got the Twitter world intrigued after all. Bezos can also be seen standing next to her the entire time in the video.

What the Twitterverse had to say:
Unsurprisingly, the clip has received a lot of comments, with one person writing, ‘Sis walked in with the richest man on the planet and risked it all when she got next to Leonardo,’ while another commenting, ‘Leo about to lose his prime membership.’
Other hilarious remarks read, ‘Jeff is going to remove all Leo movies from Amazon Prime,’ ‘Find you someone who looks at you the way Jeff Bezos’ girlfriend looks at Leo DiCaprio’ and Jeff Bezos’ girl literally just forgot she’s holding hands with the richest man in the world as soon as DiCaprio hugged her.’

The Bezos and Sanchez Saga:
Bezos and Sanchez have been in a relationship for nearly three years. Their romance has been turbulent, to say the least, with both divorcing their respective partners to get together with each other. They made it public in January 2019 and have been going strong since then.
While Bezos was quick to react to the viral video with his Tweet, Sanchez, as well as DiCaprio, are yet to share their views on it. However, the former news anchor took to Instagram to share photos from the gala, including one of herself giving her beau a loving look.
