World’s richest man and Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie are divorcing after 25 years of marriage.
Jeff who also owns the Washington Post,has announced his divorce which may potentially lead to the costliest divorce settlement in history with $137 billion at stake.
He made the divorce announcement on Wednesday on his Twitter.
“We want to make people aware of a development in our lives. As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends,” read the statement signed by both of them.
The split could lead the costliest divorce in history as there are no reports indicating the couple has a prenuptial agreement, meaning the wealth accumulated during their marriage would have to be split evenly.
Bezos also became a millionaire only in 1997 – four years after they got married. MacKenzie reportedly was one of the first Amazon’s employees.
