Amazon CEO JEFF BEZOS and his wife MacKenzie are getting divorced after 25 years of marriage, and to say a lot of money is at stake is a MASSIVE understatement.
Jeff is by far the richest man in the world, worth over $136 BILLION. Most of that is tied up in Amazon stock, so that's probably how MacKenzie will be paid whatever settlement she's getting.
If she gets even HALF her husband's fortune, she'll be the 5th richest person in the world, and by far the richest WOMAN in the world. She'll also be worth more than Facebook founder MARK ZUCKERBERG.
If Jeff and MacKenzie settle amicably and without the aid of the courts, we'll probably never know the terms. And it sounds like that's what's happening. Because when they announced their divorce yesterday, they talked about remaining friends and partners, and said, quote, "If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again."
News broke last night that Bezos is seeing TV personality LAUREN SANCHEZ, who's also getting divorced. But sources say the relationship happened AFTER Jeff and MacKenzie called it quits, and MacKenzie was aware of it.
