TV anchor Lauren Sanchez, who is in a relationship with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, filed for divorce the day after Bezos' divorce was finalised.

Sanchez and talent agent Patrick Whitesell, her husband of 14 years, both filed divorce papers Friday.

The divorce of Bezos and wife MacKenzie Bezos was finalised Thursday.

Sanchez has been a news anchor and sports reporter, and hosted Fox TV's "So You Think You Can Dance.
