MacKenzie Bezos has sold $400 million of her Amazon shares

The story. MacKenzie Bezos, ex-wife of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, has sold $400 million of her Amazon shares. Reminder: in 2019, she became one of the world’s wealthiest women following her divorce from Jeff Bezos.

Why did they get divorced? It was revealed that Jeff was having an affair with Lauren Sánchez, a media personality. Btw, she was Patrick Whitesell’s wife who was very good friends with Jeff.

Back to the story. After the divorce, Mackenzie received a 4% stake in Amazon (19.5 million shares). That is $37 billion. Now, she is selling 200,000 shares. That is about $400 million.

What is she gonna do with all the money? She hasn’t said yet. But after the divorce, MacKenzie said she was going to give half her fortune to philanthropic causes (aka charity).
