Jeff Bezos And Wife, MacKenzie Bezos, Announce Divorce

Jeff Bezos And Wife, MacKenzie Bezos, Announce Divorce”

She moved to New York City and interviewed at the investment management firm D.E. Shaw where Jeff was the first person who interviewed her. They got married a year later, around the same time he started his online bookstore. So who is MacKenzie Bezos, and what will the couples' divorce likely entail?

MacKenzie Bezos is a novelist, and has written books including "The Testing of Luther Albright" and "Traps".

Others chose to base their digs on Amazon's often controversial ways of doing business.

However, much of the family fortune is bound up in Amazon stock, with Bezos still integral to the running of the company. Most high-ranking employees saw her at social events the couple hosted at their Medina home and elsewhere.

Do they have any children?

The two met after MacKenzie graduated from Princeton University with an English degree. "If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again", said the tweet.

"We want to make people aware of a development in our lives". Bezos, 54, also owns rocket ship maker Blue Origin and The Washington Post, which he bought for $250 million in 2013.

Most of the 66 women on the Bloomberg index came into their wealth through death or divorce.

If his $137 billion fortune is split equally with MacKenzie, it would mean Bezos would lose his title as world's richest man. 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.

But although Bezos's worth. It's virtually the same as prenup (it divides earnings and assets), but the only difference is it happens after a couple ties the knot.

"My guess is they've probably have already worked up some sort of framework, and that's why they're announcing it now", Payseno said of the Bezoses. "There would be no reason that the company would be affected by this divorce", Slotnick said. Likewise, Google co-founder Sergey Brin's stake remained unchanged after he and Anne Wojcicki divorced without fanfare in 2015.
