Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world valued at $137 billion. Along with his wife, Mackenzie, the duo is the richest couple in the world. It was an ideal world, but it has now transpired that Bezos was dating Lauren Sanchez, a former Fox presenter for the last ten months. Jeff Bezos is 54 and his date 49. He has been married for 25 years, and the union has borne four children. The Telegraph has revealed that the National Enquirer had tailed the billionaire for four months across five states as he engaged in secret trysts with Lauren Sanchez.

Amicable divorce

The couple has now agreed for an amicable divorce, but the repercussion of this divorce is going to be far-reaching. In the absence of a pre-nuptial agreement, Ms. Mackenzie is entitled to 50 percent of all assets of Jeff Bezos. In other words, she stands to get at least 68 billion dollars by way of a divorce settlement. This will make Ms. Mackenzie the richest woman in the world. It appears she is happy with this and has agreed for a divorce. CNBC has confirmed the news and brought out that the couple is divorcing after 25 years just like a divorce after 19 years between Jamie Redknapp and Louise.


Jeff Bezos who is also the soul behind Amazon started his business dealing more than two decades back when he started selling books written by his wife, who is a well-known author.

He graduated to making Amazon the biggest e-commerce site in the world with branches all over the USA. It also has a global reach and is popular from India to Europe.

Once the divorce is finalized like the Ant McPartlin and Lisa Armstrong divorce, it is a moot point how much of the share Mackenzie will get in Amazon. A division could seriously affect the profitability of the company.

Nobody can forecast how the events will unfold. The Bezos also own vast lands and properties all over America making the couple the largest holder of real estate in the country. As there is no pre-nuptial agreement, the estate and assets will have to be split.

Jeff Bezos is 54, and his life so far has been remarkably free of scandal.

Now the cat is out of the bag, and it transpires that he is dating a lady who was married to Hollywood talent agent Patrick Whitesell. It appears they have separated now.

End of a fairy tale

Ms. Bezos met her husband when interviewing for a job at a New York hedge fund, according to a 2013 profile in Vogue.

The couple were engaged 25 years back after dating for just three months and got married in another three months and went on to have four children. Ms. Bezos owns about 16 percent shares in Amazon, but it is not known how the division will be done. Eminent lawyers feel that they would have already sewed up an agreement so that the transition can be smooth. All one can say is that a fairy tale has ended.
