Jeff Bezos hosting massive space-themed party to celebrate rocket flight

Jeff Bezos is throwing a huge costume party this weekend to celebrate his successful space launch, Page Six exclusively learned.

The 57-year-old Amazon founder chose the theme “Out of this world” and his guests will have to dress to impress. The party will take place in California, and we are told that he will celebrate the billionaire’s 10-minute trip to space last month alongside his younger brother, Mark.

The news comes after Bezos lost his title as the world’s richest man — being supplanted by French fashion mogul Bernard Arnault of LVMH, whose net worth recently reached $195.8 billion, while Bezos’ fortune is listed at $192.6 billion, according to Forbes.

Amazon shares fell 7.6 percent last Friday after the company reported second-quarter earnings Thursday afternoon, reducing $ 13.9 billion from its founder’s net worth in just one day.

But Bezos will shrug this weekend as he celebrates his space mission alongside his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez, who is now rumored to be his fiancé.

The father of four infamously left his wife, MacKenzie Scott, for Sánchez in 2019, and the 51-year-old entertainment reporter was seen hugging him after his space capsule landed in the remote west Texas desert on 20 May. Julio with his family watching him.

Sánchez was also photographed with a huge diamond ring on her engagement finger, the second time she has been seen wearing it.

“I wasn’t that nervous, but my family was kind of looking forward to this, so it was really sweet to be held by them after landing, especially my kids and Lauren and my mom and dad and really all of you guys. ”Bezos said after returning to Earth.

Although it is not known where Bezos is hosting the party, he has more than enough space at his Beverly Hills home.

In February 2020, Bezos broke a California record with his $ 165 million purchase of the Warner property, a piece of Hollywood history that once belonged to billionaire David Geffen.

Bezos resigned last month as CEO of Amazon, although he remains the company’s president.

He then became the second billionaire in just over a week to go into space after Sir Richard Branson narrowly beat him to it.

Unlike Branson’s piloted rocket plane, Bezos’s capsule was automated and required no official personnel on board for the flight.

His rocket, New Shepard, led by his company Blue Origin, reached an altitude of about 66 miles, which was more than 10 miles higher than Branson’s trip on July 11.

The 60-foot thruster accelerated to Mach 3 or three times the speed of sound to carry the capsule high enough before separating and landing upright.

The passengers had several minutes of weightlessness to float around the spacious white capsule before returning to Earth.

Bezos was joined by his brother and Wally Funk, 82, one of 13 female pilots who went through the same tests as NASA’s male astronaut corps in the early 1960s, but never made it to space.

Holland native Oliver Daemen, 18, was a last-minute substitute for the mysterious winner of a $ 28 million charity auction who withdrew at the last minute, leaving Daemen’s father to buy him a seat.

“The best day!” Bezos said when he landed.
