World's richest man Jeff Bezos is getting divorced

While most people are familiar with Jeff Bezos (and certainly the ultra-convenient front-door service offered by his company), most aren't as familiar with his soon-to-be ex-wife.

Overnight Bezos and his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie, announced on social media that their marriage would end.

The couple has four children: three sons and one daughter adopted from China.

Sanchez's husband, Whitesell, is one of Hollywood's most powerful agents. "Patrick and Lauren have socialized with Jeff Bezos and his wife for a few years, because both [now former] couples have houses in Seattle".

The couple were last photographed in public together at the funeral service of Senator John McCain in the United States capital, when Ms Bezos was seen linking arms with her husband as they walked into Washington Cathedral.

In any case, the couple will have to go through quite a lengthy legal process to work all this out.

"Patrick and Lauren Sanchez have been separated for a while". "They separated last summer".

The Enquirer said it had trailed Bezos and Sanchez for some time, and on Thursday published images of the pair together. All of this can make for a complicated divorce.

Bezos and MacKenzie announced in a statement on the billionaire's Twitter account that they had chose to continue their "shared lives as friends".

The sheriff's statement says the motion caused the main rotor blades to strike Disi in the head, killing him instantly. He said Disi "had an interaction" with the aircraft and "died nearly immediately, if not immediately".

Bezos, according to Bloomberg Index owns fortunes worth $137 billion. The statement did not mention how the two will split that fortune, though experts believed that's already been hashed out.

According to Forbes Africa, she would be worth more than $68 billion if she received half of Jeff's estimated $136.2 billion net worth.

Amazon's stock edged up $2.84 on Wednesday to close at $1,659.42.

But the Bezos divorce seems likely to attract more attention than when Google co-founder Sergey Brin - now worth $49bn - divorced his former wife Anne in 2015.

The company passed Microsoft this week to become the world's biggest publicly traded company by market capitalisation.

At a Business Insider event in Berlin last April, Jeff Bezos said MacKenzie's support was instrumental when he founded Amazon as an online bookseller in 1994, and that she did the accounting for the company in its first year.

"Jeff remains focused on and engaged in all aspects of Amazon", said Drew Herdener, vice president of communications for the company.

By July 1995, Amazon was operating out of a garage, with MacKenzie Bezos lending a hand, according to a review she posted on Amazon in 2013 panning The Everything Store, a book about Bezos and the company written by Brad Stone.
