Washington, D.C. (eTruePolitics) – The world’s richest man, Jeff Bezos, is denying he has an ownership stake in a new national tabloid, The American Informer.

The tabloid made a splashy debut yesterday with a headline implying that the owner of the powerful National Enquirer, David Pecker, was “dying.”

Pecker’s Enquirer has published stories about a Bezos affair, which broke up a long marriage, and now, according to Bezos, is attempting to blackmail him to stop publication of lurid photos. Bezos is not going along with the Pecker program.

“Let’s say I own American Informer,” Bezos told eTruePolitics, “can you blame me?”
