The Bezos divorce: MacKenzie Bezos gets $35 billion

The Bezos got divorced. The National Enquirer revealed that Jeff Bezos has been seeing his friend Patrick Whitesell’s wife, Lauren Sanchez for eight months. The reveal included photos of Jeff (54) and Sanchez (49) across five states and a claim that respective spouses have known about the secret affair since the fall.

So what is the big deal?

MONEY. Jeff is the richest man on Earth and the Washington State law (where they live) says that Jeff would have to divide everything he’s earned during his marriage by 50%. However, the couple reached an agreement. This is important because a divorce without settlement would’ve made Mackenzie Bezos the richest woman in the world.

So what are the terms?

The Bezos had 16% of Amazon’s stock. She’s kept the 4%– this is $35 billion worth of stock– & Jeff Bezos has kept the 12%.

Can this affect Amazon?

Not really. Jeff will continue to be the leader & decision maker as MacKenzie has given him voting rights over her shares.

What else?

MacKenzie has resigned Jeff’s space travel company Blue Origin & its interests in The Washington Post, bought by Jeff in 2013.
