TMZ reports the pair don't have a prenuptial agreement which means MacKenzie will be entitled to half of the Amazon CEO's fortune. The couple owned a home in Seattle and have socialised with the Bezoses in the past, the New York Post reported.
"Jeff remains focused on and engaged in all aspects of Amazon", a company spokesperson said in a statement.
Jeff and Lauren reportedly got close after Lauren and her husband separated.
Should Amazon's shares keep rising, Jeff Bezos could return to his spot as the world's richest man.
Her other credits include hosting the first season of "So You Think You Can Dance" and co-hosting "Good Day L.A." on FOX.
Sanchez, 49, also a helicopter pilot with her own aerial production firm, was hired to shoot aerial shots for Blue Origin, a private space company Bezos founded in 2000, the Post reported.
Despite her alleged affair with Bezos, a friend close to Sanchez told DailyMail.com she is still on friendly terms with her husband and the two were spotted speaking at the billionaire's Golden Globes after party on Sunday night. She also has a 17-year-old son with ex Tony Gonzalez.
Jeff and Mackenzie announced Wednesday that they are divorcing, adding that they have been separated for a while.

He said he's working to bring back inspectors as early as next week to restart inspections of the high-risk facilities. It's the rotten result of hundreds of FDA inspectors having been furloughed.
No information is available on how the couple are dealing with the financial implication of the divorce.
Whitesell, Sanchez and Bezos were photographed together in 2016 while promoting the Amazon-distributed award-winner Manchester by the Sea, which starred Whitesell's client Michelle Williams.
The divorce deal could significantly dilute his ownership and control of Amazon.
"After a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have made a decision to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends", the couple said in the statement issued today via the Amazon CEO's Twitter account.
"We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other", the statement reads.
Last year, the couple announced plans to commit US$2 billion to fund existing non-profits that help homeless families and to create a network of preschools in low-income communities.
Even though Bezos wasn't rich at the time, the divorce is likely to make his ex-wife the richest woman in the world.
"As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have chose to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends", they said.
