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

It was only very recently that the world's richest man, Jeff Bezos, announced that he and his wife, MacKenzie have been going through a "trail separation" but now it is being reported that Jeff is having an affair with Lauren.

Yes, there is a lot at stake in divorce, and perhaps even more so for Bezos, the world's richest man as of 2018, per Forbes.

Ms Bezos, a Princeton graduate who is now a novelist, did accounting for Amazon for its first year after it was founded in 1994. "As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have chose to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends", the tweeted statement says.

Amazon shares were mostly unchanged at market close Wednesday after briefly dipping on the announcement in early trading.

Last year, the couple announced plans to commit $2 billion to fund existing nonprofits that help homeless families and also to create a network of preschools in low-income communities. Today the company is worth almost $810 Billion.

According to New York's Post's Page Six, TMZ, and the National Enquirer among others, Bezos is dating former TV news anchor Lauren Sanchez.

From modest beginnings, Amazon branched out into nearly every product category, taking on established retailers such as Wal-Mart. She also heads a company called Black Ops Aviation.

Billionaire Jeff Bezos' divorce from his wife MacKenzie Bezos could become the most expensive in history and has the potential to impact his ownership and control of Amazon if he is forced to sell off shares to fund a settlement.
