Jeff Bezos is hosting a huge space-themed party to celebrate the rocket flight
Lauren Sanchez is hosting a huge costume party this weekend to celebrate the successful space launch of Beau Jeff Bezos, Page Six has learned exclusively.
The party for the 57-year-old Amazon founder is themed “Out of this world,” and his guests have to dress to impress.
The party takes place in California and is set to celebrate the billionaire’s 10-minute journey into space with his younger brother Mark last month.
The news comes after Bezos lost his title as the richest man in the world – he was replaced by LVMH’s French fashion mogul Bernard Arnault, whose net worth recently hit $ 195.8 billion, while Bezos’ net worth was $ 192.6 billion, according to Forbes US dollars is valued.
VARNEY: AMAZON IS “UNDER ATTACK”
Amazon shares fell 7.6 percent last Friday after the company reported second-quarter results Thursday afternoon – which cut its founder’s net worth by $ 13.9 billion in just one day.
But Bezos will shrug it off this weekend as he celebrates his space mission alongside Sanchez, who is now reportedly his fiancée.
In February 2020, Bezos broke a California record with his $ 165 million purchase of the Warner estate, a piece of Hollywood history that once belonged to billionaire David Geffen.
Then, in July 2020, Bezos bought a $ 10 million home next to the Warner estate, which gave him the opportunity to build a huge lot.
Bezos stepped down as CEO of Amazon last month despite remaining chairman of the company.
He then became the second billionaire in just over a week to go into space after Sir Richard Branson narrowly defeated him.
Unlike Branson’s piloted rocket plane, Bezos’ capsule was automated and did not require official personnel on board to fly.
His New Shepard rocket, operated by his company Blue Origin, reached an altitude of about 66 miles, which was more than 10 miles higher than Branson’s July 11th ride.
The 60-foot booster sped up to Mach 3 or three times the speed of sound to get the capsule high enough before it separated and landed upright.
Passengers had several minutes of weightlessness to orbit the spacious white capsule before returning to Earth.

Bezos was accompanied by his brother and 82-year-old Wally Funk, one of 13 female pilots who underwent the same tests as NASA’s all-male astronaut corps in the early 1960s but never made it into space.
Born in the Netherlands, Oliver Daemen, 18, was a last-minute filler for the mysterious $ 28 million charity auction winner who pulled out at the last minute, leaving Daemen’s father behind to buy him a seat.
“Best day ever!” said Bezos as he sat up.
