Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos using yall Amazon Prime membership fees to pay out his soon to be ex wife Mackenzie Bezos on the projected $137 billion dollar settlement that thet have come to agreeable terms with. Well damn.
The two seperated after reports of Jeff knocking off their mutal friend, who was also married at the time. The four would all go out together,and all.
The couple announced their divorce in January 2019 after 25 years of marriage. One month later, Bezos alleged that the National Enquirer tried to blackmail him using intimate photos of him with his mistress, Lauren Sanchez, who was revealed to have been having an affair with the Amazon CEO.
The two got married in 1993 and have four children.
Mackenzie was with Jeff when first started Amazon, and he credits her for the company’s success. She used to manage their books im the beginning.
Mackenzie says she’s “finished the process of dissolving my marriage with Jeff,”
She’s given him all of her interests in the Washington Post, and 75% of their Amazon stock. She’s also surrendered her interest in Blue Origin … the aerospace company Jeff started in 2000.
For clarification she’ really not giving him all of that. Jeff’s probably going to be paying out a nice amount of what was their $149 billion net worth.
At the start the number was originally $137 billion when they announced the split so, it’s been a good year for Bezos. Money wise.
