MacKenzie Bezos and world richest man Jeff Bezos finally revealed some details about their divorce settlement, as the two who have been married for 26years and built some of the most successful companies in the world revealed some eye popping figures.
MacKenzie Bezos who just opened a Twitter account, confirmed the agreement with now ex-husband Jeff Bezos.
From what we have gathered, Meckenzie Bezos will be going home with $35.8billion as she settles for just 4% of the $144billion of the Amazon founder’s wealth.
Jeff, 55, keeps 75 percent of their joint $144billion Amazon stake, leaving MacKenzie with just a quarter which represents a four percent stake in the company worth $35.8billion.
Jeff’s 12 percent stake is now worth around $107.5billion which allows him to retain his title as the richest man in the world.
According to dailymail, he will also take voting control of his ex-wife’s remaining quarter and has been given her interest in The Washington Post, which he bought for $250million in 2013, and Blue Origin, his space travel company which he is currently investing in.
