  • Amazon Boss Jeff Bezos Announces He Is Divorcing Wife Of 25 Years

"How could you not fall in love with that laugh?" It's not clear whether Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos signed a prenuptial agreement or formed another arrangement regarding what would happen if they split.

There is no set formula in Washington law as to how assets should be split, said Jennifer Payseno, a partner with McKinley Irvin in Seattle who handles high-net worth divorce cases for the firm.

A stockholders agreement stipulated they would vote jointly on company matters, including stock sale, but Elaine filed court documents in 2016 to get control of her shares after she was voted off the Wynn Resorts' board of directors.

MacKenzie Bezos performed accounting for Amazon in the first year of its existence, but reportedly does not hold any shares directly. Most high-ranking employees saw her at social events the couple hosted at their Medina home and elsewhere.

Carlos Ghosn: Ex-Nissan chair faces 'two new charges'
The charges add to an earlier charge of under-reporting his income by around half over the five years through March 2015. Another accusation - that he rolled personal investment losses onto Nissan - came to no cost to the company, Ghosn said.


The Enquirer says it trailed Bezos across five states for four months in what it calls the "largest investigation" in the magazine's history, with its photographer catching the lovebirds "doing the dirty on their spouses together no fewer than six times in 14 days". Bezos, 54, owns roughly 16 per cent of the business, which comprises more than 95% of his fortune. But without an agreement stipulating otherwise, their wealth would nearly certainly be divided equally, according to Karin Lundell, a partner at law firm Rower LLC in NY. The book, she told Vogue, took her 10 years and "a lot of tears" to write. MacKenzie, who was 23 at the time, asked Jeff out to lunch.

An anonymous person close to Mackenzie was quoted explaining in a Bloomberg report that Mackenzie was aware of Bezos and Sanchez living together. Lauren was there but wasn't with Jeff all the time.

The response from the Twitterverse was greeted with both heartfelt sympathy and some amusement and speculation, including whether or not Bezos and his wife had a prenup, what singledom would look like for Bezos, and how the announcement will affect Amazon's worth.

Bezos bought The Post in 2013 in a $250 million deal. But this time she made a decision to not share her work with her husband until it was finished. "Successful couples are good friends, they manage conflict well, they share a sense of meaning, they build trust and they are committed to the relationship". "By the last three months, they were so real and important to me, I could start crying just thinking about them while driving to pick up the kids from school".
