Bezos' relationship with girlfriend Lauren Sanchez has been front and center following a report that she shared texts with her brother detailing their affair, which her brother then sold to the National Enquirer.

Bezos' guests arrived after the exclusive Alfalfa Club Dinner, a century-old tradition. His guests also included actor Ben Stiller, Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, former Defense Secretary James Mattis and Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo.
Bezos bought the mansion, the former Textile Museum, for $23 million in 2016. His neighbors include Barack and Michelle Obama, as well as Ivanka Trump and Kushner.
