Jeff Bezos' Alleged Affair Revealed Hours After Announcing Divorce
10 January 2019, 08:27 | Elsie Buchanan
Jeff Bezos and wife MacKenzie splitting after 25 years
"When you have loving and supportive people in your life, like MacKenzie, my parents, my grandfather, my grandmother, you end up being able to take risks", he said at the time in Berlin, Germany.
The couple said that after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, they have chose to divorce and continue their shared lives as friends.
It continued, "We feel incredible lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for everyone one of the years we have been married to each other".
MacKenzie stands to receive a sizable settlement and support from Jeff Bezos as his wealth has been estimated at $137 billion, CNBC reported. By July 1995, Amazon was operating out of a garage, with MacKenzie lending a hand, according to a review she posted on Amazon in 2013 panning "The Everything Store", a book about Bezos and the company written by Brad Stone.
The Amazon founder announced in a tweet yesterday that he and his wife of 25 years have "decided to divorce".
The couple met in NY and married in 1993, the year before Mr Bezos started the online retail giant in his garage.
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.
Jeff Bezos founded Amazon one year after marrying MacKenzie, which may make her entitled to half his fortune. If that's the case, then Bezos would no longer be the world's richest man (Bill Gates would be) and MacKenzie would become the world's richest woman, per Vox.
Ms Bezos has credited Ms Bezos, 48, for her support when he uprooted the young couple from NY to Seattle so he could launch the online bookseller that grew into one of the world's largest retailers.
Rupert Murdoch's 1999 divorce from wife of 31 years Anna cost $1.7 billion.
Amazon shares were mostly unchanged at market close Wednesday after briefly dipping on the announcement in early trading.
And while the intimate agreements and details about Jeff Bezos' marriage still remain uncertain, we have a pretty good guess as to what Bezos will be up against if he does not have a prenuptial agreement. According to the New York City Bar legal referral service, that's the difference between property that will belong to just one person in the event of a divorce or property that will belong to both partners.
