It is not moon and beaches when it comes to the personal life of Patrick Whitesell; not at least as of recent reports. As such Whiteshell is not quite on speaking terms with his estranged wife, Lauren Sanchez, a top powerbroker in Hollywood who is known for representing some of the world’s biggest movie stars.
Sanchez’s name didn’t surface until the divorce announcement by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie. On January 9, 2019, the Amazon chief split from his wife MacKenzie and later in the day Page Six alleged Bezos was romantically involved with Patrick’s wife, Sanchez which in the long run indeed turned out to be true and hence came the end of Patrick and Lauren’s love story. Further, they filed for divorce in April 2019.
Lauren and Patrick Whitesell had wedded back in 2005 in an elaborate $2 million Santa Barbara affair and acquired multiple properties during the marriage.

Back at the beginning of his marital life with Lauren, (in the year 2006), the then happy couple paid $11 million for a Beverly Hills mansion. In 2017, they exchanged $4.5 million for the vacant lot next door to extend their yard. The lot was formerly owned by the late director Tony Scott who bought in 2003 for $800,000. Tony's widow then sold the property for $2.85 million to a real estate developer who in turn traded it to the Whitesell/Sanchezes for $4.8 million; a $2 million profit for holding the lot for one week.
In 2013, Patrick and his dad spent $65,000 to buy (and $500,000 to renovate) a bankrupt Iowa movie palace.
