Jeff Bezos, Wife MacKenzie Bezos Divorcing After 25 Years

Jeff Bezos, Wife MacKenzie Bezos Divorcing After 25 Years The Richest Man in the World, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Could Lose His $137B

The world's richest couple, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie Bezos, have announced that they are divorcing.

MacKenzie was one of Amazon's first employees and worked on the firm's accounts as the venture took shape. "I presume it will be business as usual, and wouldn't expect any lingering reaction".

According to Refinitiv Eikon data, Ms Bezos does not hold any Amazon shares directly.

Nobody really knows what "loving exploration" is or why these two broke up, and quite frankly, they probably don't care.

The billionaire executive and his novelist wife have four children; one daughter, who they adopted from China, and three sons.

An exclusive source told the Post "Patrick and Lauren have socialised with Jeff Bezos and his wife for a few years, because both (now former) couples have houses in Seattle".

"People get prenuptial agreements when they have assets to protect", Slotnick said. The couple own a home in a wealthy Seattle suburb within the county. There's already speculation that matters may be influenced by MacKenzie's foundational role within the company, and that she may be entitled to as much as AUD $92 billion. But sources say Lauren became closer to Bezos after she separated with Whitesell in the fall.

If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would it all again.

Bloomberg estimates Bezos is worth $137 billion and Amazon has reached a $792 billion market cap.

The divorce could reshape the wealth rankings. Bezos eclipsed Gates in October 2017.

According to the law in Washington State, where the couple reside, the spouses will have to equitably divide "community property" - including all income earned during their marriage.

In 2012, they donated $2.5 million to a Washington state campaign to legalise same-sex nuptials there.

But the language in their announcement suggests they may have had a postnuptial agreement, similar to a prenup but arranged after earnings and finances change or bad acts in a marriage occur, she said.

It turned ugly and stretched on for years after Elaine was granted nearly half of Steve's ownership in the company back when they divorced in 2010.

An equal division of such a fortune would be unprecedented. "Especially in the case of a public company, they're not going to want information to leak because it could ultimately affect stock prices".

Oil industry magnate Harold Hamm's separation from Sue Ann Arnall was far messier. Arnall later sought to reopen the case but the Oklahoma Supreme Court dismissed the appeal in 2015.
