BILLION DOLLAR BABY: Amazon boss Bezos could face $90B divorce deal

BILLION DOLLAR BABY: Amazon boss Bezos could face $90B divorce deal”

Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder, was forced to announce his divorce ahead of a tell-all story about his eight-month affair with a former TV presenter, it was reported on Thursday. As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have made a decision to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends. (See their full statement below.) They have yet to file any official paperwork with the courts, confirming expectations that they will seek to handle the matter privately so as to avoid attracting unwanted attention to the company.

The National Enquirer publication which is found in its latest issue released today, said that its team tracked Jeff and Lauren across five states and 40,000 miles, tailed them in private jets, swanky limos, helicopter rides, romantic hikes, five-star hotel hideaways, intimate dinner dates and "quality time" in hidden love nests.

Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, did not address the financial terms of their divorce when announcing their split in a joint statement on Wednesday.

President Donald Trump resisted the temptation on Thursday to take a shot at a frequent target of his barbs, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

It was through her husband that Sanchez is believed to have met the richest man in the world.

Sanchez and Bezos reportedly became close after he hired her to shoot aerials for one of his projects.

The other woman: former So You Think You Can Dance host Laura Sanchez.

The New York Post also reported the relationship and said Whitesell and Sanchez are separated. He drafted the company's original business plan on a laptop while driving cross-country in the early 1990s to Seattle with MacKenzie Bezos at the wheel.

Sources close to Jeff however told TMZ that the relationship with Lauren began after Jeff and Mackenzie's separation.

That means in the state of Washington where there are "community property rules", couples without a prenup split assets down the middle, thus meaning the Amazon CEO's fortune of $137B could be cut directly in half with a 50/50 split.

"When you are talking over US$100 billion there is enough to go around". Jeff Bezos, 54, is at the top of most list, and his fortune now hovers around $137 billion.

Even if Bezos were exempted from filing a Form 4, he would be required to update promptly the record of his Amazon holdings on file with the SEC if his position in the company changed by 1 per cent or more, said D.C. securities lawyer Thomas Gorman.
