The National Enquirer's parent company said Friday it was in "good faith" negotiations to resolve issues with Jeff Bezos at the time the Amazon billionaire accused the tabloid of trying to blackmail him. 

American Media Inc., or AMI, said it "believes fervently that it acted lawfully in the reporting of the story" of Bezos, who says the company threatened to publish embarrassing photos of him unless he stopped trying to find out how the tabloid obtained salacious text messages between him and his mistress. 

Nonetheless, the company's board said in a statement, it will "promptly and thoroughly investigate the claims."

Along with ending Bezos' investigation, the publisher also demanded that the Amazon founder agree publicly that its previous coverage of him wasn’t politically motivated, he wrote Thursday in a post on the website Medium that included copies of emails from AMI representatives.
