Bezos' Ex-Wife Is Now World's Fourth Richest Woman


It’s official –Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie have finalized their divorce...and it's the biggest divorce settlement in world history. It was reported that the Amazon mogul’s alleged mistress Lauren Sanchez wanted to lay low until they were both single. Her split is “effectively sealed,” and now Bezos has filed his divorce petition with MacKenzie.

For her part, MacKenzie has taken to Twitter to share some of the terms of their split, revealing that she’s given her ex 75-percent of their shared Amazon stock, and voted control of her own shares. The former couple shared a 16-percent stake in the company, with MacKenzie’s remaining four-percent worth around $35-billion (yes, with a B) and making her the fourth richest woman in the world.

As for Bezos, he's also shared a statement on Twitter, full of nothing but praise for his now ex-wife. “I’m grateful for [MacKenzie’s] support and for her kindness in this process and am very much looking forward to our new relationship as friends and co-parents,” he writes. “In all our work together, MacKenzie’s abilities have been on full display. She has been an extraordinary partner, ally and mother.”
