Jeff Bezos is getting divorced after 25 years, and according to reports, it could get very expensive for the Amazon founder.
TMZ reports that Bezos and his wife MacKenzie do not have a pre-nuptial agreement, which in Washington state could mean that MacKenzie is due half of her husband’s estimated worth of over $137 billion.
And it wouldn’t just be the money – a divorce settlement could also weaken Bezos’ control of Amazon if his wife gets half of his 78 million shares.
Of course, it’s possible that an agreement was worked out well before the divorce papers were filed. The split is reportedly “super-amicable” and the couple promised to remain ‘friends’ when announcing the divorce earlier this week.
