Jeff Bezos’ Wife Gets $36B In The Biggest Divorce Settlement Ever

The well-publicized divorce between Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, has finally reached a settlement between the couple that has broken all previous records.

Within their agreement, MacKenzie Bezos will retain approximately 4 percent of Amazon’s outstanding common stock, which is reportedly worth around $35.6 billion and will make her the third-biggest shareholder at the company.

Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos will remain the world’s wealthiest person with a net worth above $110 billion, as MacKenzie has agreed to give him all of her interests in the Washington Post and his space exploration company, Blue Origin, in addition to 75 percent of their Amazon stock and voting control of her shares.

The couple took to their separate Twitter accounts to express how grateful they both are now that the process of the divorce is over.
