Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos accuses National Enquirer publisher of 'extortion' over naked photos in extraordinary blog post (AMZN)

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has accused AMI, the publisher of the National Enquirer, of attempting to extort him over leaked naked photos in an extraordinary statement.
The National Enquirer recently published an investigation into an affair between the billionaire tech exec and Lauren Sanchez, and suggested it had somehow obtained intimate photos Bezos had sent her.
In a Medium post published on Thursday, Bezos alleges that AMI attempted to extort him over the photos. He claims that the publisher threatened to publish the photos unless he made "the specific false public statement to the press that" that he has no basis to believe AMI's coverage was politically motivated.
It is an extraordinary intervention from the 55-year-old exec into the tabloid saga, who has so far refrained from commenting and is rarely gives media interviews or makes public statements.
Here's Bezos' blog post, in part:
