According to the statement, the two will remain "partners in ventures and projects". His tweet suggested the split would be amicable parting, saying "we remain a family and we remain cherished friends". "If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it again".

And there has never been more money than in this case.

However, earlier this week it was reported that Amazon surpassed software firm, Microsoft, as the most valuable company on Wall Street.

The Washington Post could be one of the Jeff Bezos assets at risk in his divorce.

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 Bezos also bought a mansion in a swanky Washington D.C. neighbourhood past year for $US23 million.

The couple have four children together, ranging in ages from 13 to 18. It has not been made public whether Bezos and MacKenzie had a prenup when they married before moving to Seattle and founding Amazon. Amazon didn't respond to inquiries about how the divorce may affect that stake. They have not yet formally filed for divorce.

When Elaine Wynn divorced casino mogul Steve Wynn, the pair split their 20 per cent stake in Wynn Resorts Ltd., with Elaine giving him voting control over her shares and agreeing to limit her stock sales. So, the news of his costly divorce sparked a slew of hilarious comebacks from Twitter users, who speculated over how the separation will impact the tycoon's fortune.

A divorce could reshape the wealth rankings.

He also owns The Washington Post, which has been a target of criticism from US President Donald Trump. The couple announced the news on Twitter Wednesday just three days shy of Bezos' 55th birthday. "How could you not fall in love with that laugh?" she told the publication. While his wife did the cross-country driving, Bezos wrote a business plan on the way to Seattle - chosen for its abundance of tech talent. She has released two novels, the first of which, The Testing of Luther Albright, collected an American Book Award in 2006.
