Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has hit the headlines with an explosive tell-all blog post published on Thursday. Jeff has accused the publisher of the National Enquirer for extortion and blackmailing. Jeff took to Twitter and wrote, “I’ve written a post about developments with the National Enquirer and its parent company, AMI. You can find it here.” Jeff Bezos, world’s richest man, titled his post "No thank you, Mr. Pecker, referring to AMI's chairman and CEO, David Pecker.

"Something unusual happened to me yesterday. Actually, for me it wasn't just unusual — it was a first. I was made an offer I couldn't refuse. Or at least that's what the top people at the National Enquirer

thought. I'm glad they thought that, because it emboldened them to put it all in writing," Bezos wrote. "Rather than capitulate to extortion and blackmail, I've decided to publish exactly what they sent me, despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten,” his blog reads.

According to a report in KXLY.com, the National Enquirer said it had been investigating Bezos for four months and claimed that they had evidence of Jeff Bezos "whisking his mistress off to exotic destinations on his $65 million private jet.”

Also Bezos' text messages were made public last month. Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie Bezos, are getting divorced after 25 years of marriage.
