Amazon's Jeff Bezos, wife MacKenzie finalise divorce

Share

At Amazon's current share price of US$1,812 a share that would be worth some US$35.6 billion (S$48.2 billion). "Grateful for the past as I look forward to what comes next", she said. "She has been an extraordinary partner, ally, and mother".

Mr Bezos is said to be worth some US$131bn (€116bn) - and was named number one on the "Richest People In The World" list from Forbes. The Bezos fortune is comprised of Amazon stock primarily as the couple owns about 16 percent of the outstanding common stock of the company. "She is resourceful and brilliant and loving, and as our futures unroll, I know I'll always be learning from her".

In a tweeted statement released at exactly the same time as his ex-wife's, Jeff wrote of his continued gratitude for MacKenzie's support and partnership.

MacKenzie, a book author, is now one of the richest women in the world, according to The Washington Post. After Bezos and his wife announced in January that they would part, United States tabloid magazine The National Enquirer published details, including private messages, of the extramarital affair with Sanchez.

Federal prosecutors in NY are probing whether the National Enquirer's parent company violated a cooperation agreement in its handling of the story regarding Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

The couple each released statements on Twitter on Thursday announcing that they have "finished the process of dissolving" their marriage.

Jeff may have walked away with the majority of the Amazon shares, but MacKenzie appears to have won the hearts of Twitter users with an iconic first tweet.

American Media and its CEO David Pecker have had close links to Trump, who on Twitter has attacked Bezos, Amazon, and the Washington Post - the newspaper he owns privately.
