Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos and his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez enjoyed an early dinner in Malibu on Sunday while celebrating a friend’s birthday.
The couple appeared to be on a double date when they were spotted dining with two pals at the celebrity hotspot Nobu. The foursome was seated on the outdoor patio, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
Bezos, 58, and Sanchez, 52, held hands as they walked into the Japanese restaurant, with the latter flashing a massive emerald flanked by diamonds on her engagement finger — a ring that she has been wearing off and on for nearly a year.

Sanchez was dressed to impress in a strapless green dress with a butterfly print and an asymmetrical hem
She also previously sparked engagement rumors last summer when she wore a heart-shaped diamond ring to Bezo’s Blue Origin launch. However, the couple has yet to publicly announce any plans to tie the knot.
Sanchez was dressed to impress in a strapless green dress with a butterfly print and an asymmetrical hem. She paired the figure-hugging frock with nude stilettos featuring clear straps and aviator sunglasses.
The pièce de résistance — aside from the bauble on her finger — was her brown Hermès mini Birkin bag, which she carried with her free hand.
The starting cost of a Birkin is around $10,000, but the highly-coveted handbags can sell for $100,000 or more depending on the style.

Sanchez’s long dark hair was worn in loose waves around her shoulders, and she appeared to have large diamond studs in her ears. She also had on a delicate gold ankle bracelet.
Bezos was dressed more casually in a gray T-shirt that hugged his arm muscles, light khaki pants, and white sneakers. Like his girlfriend, he also shielded his eyes from the blazing California sun with a pair of aviators.
Sanchez took a selfie with her friend Laura during the dinner and later posted it on Instagram to wish her a happy birthday.

Earlier this month, Bezos and Sanchez were spotted at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, a celebrated Italian restaurant that also happens to be Rihanna’s favorite place to eat in Los Angeles.
The couple was previously seen out and about in London before returning to LA, where Bezos has been putting down roots.
The Amazon founder and former CEO, who is worth $155 billion, broke California real estate records when he purchased the Warner estate in Beverly Hills for $165 million in February 2020.

Five months later, he scooped up an adjacent home for $10 million while building up his compound.
It’s unclear when exactly Bezos and Sanchez’s first got together, but their affair was exposed by the National Enquirer in January 2019.
Soon after, the entrepreneur and investor split from his wife of over 25 years and the mother of his four children, MacKenzie Scott, 52.
Sanchez was also married when her relationship with Bezos was outed. Her then-husband, Patrick Whitesell, 57, was reportedly the one who introduced her to Bezos in the first place.

Bezos and Scott finalized their divorce in April 2019, the same month that Sanchez and Whitesell ended their marriage. She and Bezos made their first public appearance together in May 2019
Whitesell, a powerful man in his own right, is the executive chairman of Endeavor, the parent company of talent agency William Morris Endeavor Entertainment (WME).
Bezos and Scott finalized their divorce in April 2019 — the same month that Sanchez and Whitesell ended their marriage.
Sanchez shares two children with Whitesell, a son, Evan Whitesell, 16, and a daughter, Eleanor Whitesell, 14. She also has an older son, Nikko Gonzalez, 21, with her ex-boyfriend, retired NFL tight-end Tony Gonzalez.
She and Bezos made their first public appearance together in May 2019, before jetting off to St. Barts for the holidays. Months later, they made their red carpet debut in January 2020.
Bezos and Sanchez have spent the past three years traveling the world together, and he had her full support when he blasted off into space on his company’s rocket last summer.
