The richest man in the world is shopping for a love nest in Los Angeles — and he’s not ruling out a nine-figure price tag, The Post has learned.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos has been actively shopping for homes in the Beverly Hills and Bel Air neighborhoods in recent weeks with his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez — and some of the mansions they’ve toured have been listed for more than $100 million, sources said.
There are fewer than 10 houses in the Los Angeles area on the market at any given time that fit Bezos, Gitlin said.
One of those he has visited was the 10.1-acre estate at 750 Bel Air Road known as “Chartwell,” which recently sold for $150 million, confirmed Drew Mandile of Sotheby’s International Realty, the broker on the property. “He is always looking,” Mandile said of Bezos. “He is an energetic man who has a large appetite.”
A FUTURISTIC plan has been released for an incredible superyacht which transforms into a submarine. The extravagant hybrid vessel, dubbed Carapace, is the ultimate billionaire’s retreat and offers total privacy from prying eyes.
This sub-aquatic superyacht looks like it has come straight out of a James Bond movie. The vessel concept represents a “new class of mega yachts,” according to its designer[/caption] With a top surface speed of 16 knots, the ship is almost eight times the length of a double decker bus and will be able to delve into the depths of the ocean for 10 days at a time.

A mega-yacht rumored to cost $400 million and be owned by Jeff Bezos was spotted off the coast of Turkey in photos circulating on Twitter.
The “Flying Fox” yacht was reported to anchor off Datça, a popular tourist destination in Turkey, in early July, but it was unclear whether Bezos was aboard.
Photos of a mega-yacht anchored off the coast of Turkey began circulating on Twitter Saturday, with rumors that the vessel belonged to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and was worth $400 million.
Turkish media first reported that the yacht was anchored off the coast of Datça, a popular tourist destination in Turkey, on July 9. Original tweets claiming that the yacht belongs to Bezos have since been deleted, along with the original photo, but screenshots continue to circulate on social media.
There’s a reason the novel The Talented Mr. Ripley occurs on the Amalfi Coast and that the film adaptation was filmed in Positano. The entire storyhinges upon the prodigal (and privileged) son who refuses to return home to “subways and taxis and starched collars and a nine-to five job,” preferring to stay within the endless summer of the Amalfi Coast: “It isn’t as much fun as sailing a boat in old clothes and being answerable to nobody.”
So many of us love to travel that the thought of sitting in coach for a few hours is the least of our problems — we’re just excited to be going somewhere new! But for celebrities, the idea of sitting in coach is unfathomable. Not only are celebrities constantly used to the star treatment, but sitting in an area with—dare I say—commoners would be too much to bare.
Just think about all of the people taking pictures of them and watching everything they do. As soon as that seatbelt sign goes off, you know fans of the star will be going up to them, asking for pictures and autographs.
