Jeff Bezos and Wife MacKenzie Headed for Divorce After 25 Years of Marriage, $137 Billion Up for Grabs
A tricky dick is leading to America’s highest priced divorce EVER.
The Amazon CEO is said to be worth $137 BILLION — this this will be the one of the most expensive divorces in history.
Bezos, who is 54, made it clear the divorce is amicable, saying, “We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other.”
And, this is interesting … he clearly views the marriage as a success … “If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again.”
They met in New York when he was vice president of a hedge fund. He had actually interviewed her for a job. They married in 1993 — 6 months after they met — and they quit their Wall Street jobs and moved to Seattle where Jeff opened an online bookstore — the origin of Amazon. Just like Steve Jobs, Bezos started the bookstore in his garage.
They are both super smart … they graduated from Princeton, but did not meet there … she’s 6 years younger than him.
MacKenzie is a novelist, who studied under Toni Morrison and won an American Book Award in 2006 for “The Testing of Luther Albright.” She’s also the Executive Director of an anti-bullying org. called Bystander Revolution.
