Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie Bezos have officially finalised their divorce.
We have discovered that Jeff‘s now ex-wife has walked away with a substantial amount of money … in an announcement on Twitter, she explained her shares in Amazon are no more.
MacKenzie said, “Grateful to have finished the process of dissolving my marriage with Jeff with support from each other and everyone who reached out to use in kindness, and looking forward to next phase as co-parents and friends.
Happy to be giving him all of my interests in the Washington Post and Blue Origin, and 75% of our Amazon stock plus voting control of my shares to support his continued contributions with the teams of these incredible companies. Excited about my own plans. Grateful for the past as I look forward to what comes next.”
They announced their divorce in January this year, and speculation began that Jeff would need to forfeit a huge portion of his wealth — but it would seem the outcome is quite the opposite.
Jeff is now dating Lauren Sanchez, former So You Think You Can Dance host and the soon-to-be ex-wife of Patrick Whitesell. The couple started dating in 2018 whilst Jeff and MacKenzie were on a trial separation.
In terms of the overall figure that MacKenzie has received, we couldn’t even provide a guestimate — but Jeff still remains one of the richest men in the world.
