  • Update Jeff and Mac Kenzie Bezos $137B Divorce Involves No Prenup

National Enquirer magazine had been set to release an exclusive story in its latest edition, which will hit the newsstands on Thursday, revealing the eight-month affair of Bezos, 54, and Lauren Sanchez, a helicopter pilot and former Television anchor.

Amazon shares seesawed on Thursday as investors questioned how the impending divorce of company founder Jeff Bezos would affect his control of the most valuable company on Wall Street and its ambitious expansion plans. "I will show you with my body, and my lips and my eyes, very soon", the tabloid reports.

The divorce is further complicated by the fact the couple reside in Washington in the U.S. which is a "community property state" which means all assets and debts accrued during the marriage are considered equally owned by both spouses, unless a prenuptial agreement states otherwise.

The twice-divorced commander-in-chief is a frequent critic of Bezos, who also owns the Washington Post - accusing his paper of being Amazon's "chief lobbyist" and claiming his online emporium is ripping off the US Postal Service.

According to CNBC, Bezos would have to shell out billions in cash and shares to MacKenzie, 48.

No information is available on how the couple are dealing with the financial implication of the divorce.

But the New York Post, citing legal experts and insiders, Bezos' wife will likely want to keep the family fortune essentially intact.
