Patrick Whiteshell had his heart broken by Lauren Sanchez when she ran off with one of the wealthiest men in the world, Jeff Bezos.
But the multi-millionaire Hollywood agent ultimately got the last laugh after finding love with Australian bombshell, Pia Whitesell.
Patrick, 58, and Pia, who is 18 years her husband’s junior, secretly tied the knot in 2021 after going public with their relationship two years prior.
While they’ve remained pretty tight-lipped about their relationship, the pair have been inseparable – with the stunning actress regularly posting sweet and wholesome content with her beau on Instagram.
Pia is a household name in Australia. The model-turned-actress is best known for her stint on the long-running soap Home and Away, playing Senior Constable Katarina Chapman on the show from 2015 to the 2018 season finale.

But Pia’s love life hasn’t always been a fairytale – the mother of two previously went through a highly publicised divorce from footy hero Brad Miller, which was soon followed by a failed engagement to a Sydney businessman.
Before she became a household name in Australia, Pia was a teenage mother who welcomed her first son at the tender age of 19. In 2003, she gave birth to her eldest son, Isaiah.
In 2005, she met AFL legend Brad, the man who became her first husband.
The pair appeared to have a happy life together, with Pia giving birth to their son Lennox in October 2006. She married the retired Richmond player the following year.

However, the couple sadly announced their split in 2015 after 10 years together – the break-up blamed on their hectic work schedules.
Shortly after their split, Pia was linked to film producer and businessman Tyson Mullane. They announced their romance on Valentine’s Day in 2016.
In November 2017, Pia confirmed their engagement in a gushing Instagram post, but the lovebirds never made it down the aisle.
While neither confirmed the end of their engagement, they both quietly unfollowed each other on social media, and Pia was spotted without her ring in April 2019.

Later that year, she met the man of her dreams and now-husband, Patrick.
The pair their public debut at a Halloween party in LA in October 2019.
Pia and Patrick tied the knot in 2021 at an undisclosed location in either the US or Mexico.
They appear to have celebrated her honeymoon with Patrick in Cabo, Mexico, in March.
Her engagement ring alone – a solitaire oval diamond sparkler – is estimated to be worth between US$800,000 (AU$1.10million) and US$1.4million (AU$1.9million).

Patrick is considered one of Hollywood’s most influential celebrity agents, representing the likes of Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, Matt Damon, Michelle Williams, Idris Elba, Jake Gyllenhaal, Hugh Jackman, John Krasinski, Jude Law, Ryan Reynolds, and Denzel Washington.
The handsome businessman acts as the Executive Chairman of Endeavour talent agency and owns a stake in the company worth around US$480million (approx. $735million).
Pia has well and truly healed Patrick’s broken heart after his ex-wife Lauren, 53, left him for Bezos in one of the biggest scandals of 2019.
Patrick’s 14-year marriage came to an end when it was revealed in January 2019 that Sanchez and the former Amazon boss were having an affair.
While it’s unclear when exactly they started dating, Sanchez and Bezos’ romance was first exposed by the National Enquirer in January 2019, while they were both married to their now-exes.

Soon after it came to light, the billionaire businessman divorced his wife-of-over-25-years and the mother of his four children, Mackenzie Scott, while Sanchez left her then-husband, Patrick.
At the time, the bombshell report from the Enquirer claimed that Sanchez and Bezos had been involved in an eight-month affair, which involved him ‘whisking his mistress off to exotic destinations on his $65 million private jet, sending her raunchy messages and erotic selfies, and having secret rendezvous at palatial private estates.’
The outlet said that it had tracked them ‘across five states and 40,000 miles, tailing them in private jets, swanky limos, helicopter rides, romantic hikes, five-star hotel hideaways, intimate dinner dates and “quality time” in hidden love nests.’
As for how Bezos, 59, and Sanchez met, it was said that it was Sanchez’s husband Patrick who was the first to introduce the two at an Amazon studios party for the movie Manchester By the Sea in 2016.
Her production team was then hired to film footage for Bezos’s rocket company, Blue Origin, in 2018.

‘Patrick and Lauren have socialized with Jeff Bezos and his wife for a few years, because both [now former] couples have houses in Seattle,’ a source told Page Six after their affair was first brought to light.
‘Then Lauren was hired to work on one of Jeff’s projects, Blue Origin, a space-launch company. She has been shooting aerial shots for Jeff.’
Sanchez previously revealed to Wall Street Journal that her and Bezos connected over their shared love of flying.
She got her helicopter pilot’s license in 2016, and once called being in the air her ‘calling,’ while Jeff is in the process of getting his own pilot’s license.

DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that Bezos popped the question to his Emmy Award winning journalist girlfriend on board his $500million superyacht earlier this week.
The couple was seen kissing and canoodling on board ‘Koru’ across the weekend, while Sanchez struggled to conceal the rock the size of a Balearic Island that glinted on her ring finger – sparkling proof that she said, ‘Yes.’
The newly minted fiancées were pictured off the coast of Cannes, where they are enjoying a Mediterranean odyssey and the inaugural voyage of Bezos’s half a billion-dollar superyacht.
The pair flew into Europe by private jet and were first seen on the deck of the superyacht last weekend.
