Saudi Arabia's foreign minister said on Sunday that the kingdom had nothing to do with leaking Jeff Bezos' texts to the National Enquirer, and that the whole saga sounds like a "soap opera."




In his explosive blog last week, Bezos pointed to links between the National Enquirer and the Saudis, as well as to his own publication the Washington Post's coverage of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi.




An attorney for AMI — the Enquirer's publisher — also denied that Saudi Arabia had anything to do with the story in an interview with ABC on Sunday.




He refused to name the source who handed the texts over to the Enquirer when asked if it was Michael Sanchez, brother to Lauren Sanchez, Jeff Bezos' reported lover.




But he let slip that the source is a man who is known to Bezos and Lauren Sanchez.



Saudi Arabia's foreign minister told CBS on Sunday that the kingdom had nothing to do with the leaking of Jeff Bezos' intimate texts to the National Enquirer.
Bezos published an explosive blog last week accusing US tabloid the National Enquirer of "blackmail and extortion." He mentioned links between Saudi Arabia and Enquirer publisher American Media Inc (AMI), including the story that AMI published a glossy pro-Saudi magazine in March 2018.
Bezos also made reference to the story of Jamal Khashoggi, the Washington Post Journalist who was murdered in the Istanbul Saudi consulate last October.
