MacKenzie Bezos Reportedly Receiving $36 Billion In Divorce
Someone’s probably just fine with her hubby’s alleged Amazon Prime piping.
MacKenzie and Jeff Bezos announced the terms of their highly publicized divorce today. Jeff will maintain 75% of Amazon’s stock along with voting control of MacKenzie’s shares. MacKenzie also relinquished to him all of her interests in The Washington Post and the Blue Origin aerospace company reports CNBC.
She will still have a 4% stake in Amazon that while doesn’t sound like much, is worth an estimated $35.6 billion. That makes MacKenzie the fourth richest woman in the world.
MacKenzie tweeted that she’s “looking forward to what comes next.”
In a separate statement, Jeff Bezos said he’s looking forward to co-parenting with his ex-wife.
“I’m grateful for her support and for her kindness in this process and am very much looking forward to our new relationship as friends and co-parents,” Bezos said.
If you can remember Jeff was outed by the National Enquirer for allegedly having an affair with former Extra TV host Lauren Sanchez. Bezos is said to be super smitten with Lauren and was reportedly Amazon Prime piping her during his marriage.
The Enquirer said its reporters followed the couple “across five states and 40,000 miles” and “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”.
At least they’re free to be together now.

Why am I wearing pajamas to an Amazon board meeting? September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and each year Amazon partners with @ACCOrg to raise awareness of childhood cancer – second leading cause of death for kids in the U.S. between ages 4 and 14. Today, Amazonians across the globe show their support by wearing their pajamas to work – also known as #PJammin. Another way we’re raising awareness is through our special #GoGold boxes – you may receive one during September. Never have I been more comfortable at an Amazon board meeting!
What would YOU buy first if you divorced Jeff Bezos???
