Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has been mingling with Hollywood elites and other stars at recent high profile events including fashion shows, award shows and after-parties, according to Page Six.

One “family source” told Page Six: “Jeff has clearly ‘gone Hollywood.’”

“Risky fashion choices, lunch with Anna Wintour, a nonstop barrage of shameless selfies with A-listers,” the source reportedly added. “He’s ... a narcissist with poor judgment and Lauren is calling the shots.”

In December, Bezos reportedly threw a 50th birthday for Sanchez, inviting celebrities including Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom and Timothee Chalamet, according to Page Six.

The couple has also recently been seen at Tom Ford’s fashion show, the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party and the Super Bowl, where they’ve spent time with the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Anna Wintour and Lizzo.

A former colleague of Bezos reportedly told the Post: “I’ve known Jeff since the early days of Amazon and his recent behavior is nothing that I would expect from him — this is not the Jeff that I knew.”

Meanwhile, another source told Page Six that Sanchez loves Los Angeles and “the life it affords her.”

Other celebrity friends of Bezos and Sanchez include big names in Hollywood such as media mogul David Geffen and record executive Scooter Braun and his wife Yael, according to Page Six.

However, it isn’t Bezos’ first home in Beverly Hills. He and his ex-wife, MacKenzie Bezos, previously paid $24 million for an 11,891-square-foot mansion there and later bought the house next door for $12.9 million.
