THE YCEO: Jeff Bezos settles divorce with wife MacKenzie, giving her $32billion of his Amazon shares

Jeff Bezos settles divorce with wife MacKenzie, giving her $32billion
World’s richest man, Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie have officially ended their 25 years marriage after settling their divorce.

Jeff, 55, will keep 75 percent of their Amazon stocks, leaving 48-year-old MacKenzie, with just a quarter which represents a four percent stake in the company worth around $32billion at current value.

According to Daily Mail, Jeff’s 12 percent stake is now worth around $100billion which allows him to retain his title as the richest man in the world because he still has $4billion more than Bill Gates.

He will also take voting control of her remaining quarter and has been given her stock in The Washington Post and Blue Origin.

The pair took to their Twitter pages on Thursday afternoon to announce the details. But there was no mention of how they will divide their sprawling property portfolio or other investments and why they did not divide them equally.

In their tweets, the estranged partners said they were ‘grateful’  after finishing the process of their divorce.
Back in January, it was claimed Jeff Bezos’ affair with TV host Lauren Sanchez led to his divorce from wife of 25 years. Lauren is also in the process of divorcing her Hollywood agent husband Patrick Whitesell.
