Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie are getting a divorce and $137 BILLION is on the line! WOW. Here's more from TMZ:
"Bezos said on Twitter after what he called a trial separation he and his wife, MacKenzie have now decided to end their 25-year marriage...The multi-billion dollar question ... is there a prenup? They live in Washington, which is a community property state. That means any assets accrued during the marriage are split 50/50, unless, of course, there's a prenup. There are sign there was NOT a prenup ... Jeff reportedly became a millionaire in 1997. Bezos, the richest man in the world with a $22 billion edge over #2 Bill Gates, says, 'Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends.'"
The couple met when Bezos was the vice president of a hedge fund. They married in 1993 and moved to Seattle where Jeff started an online bookstore in his garage. Of course, that later went on to become Amazon.
