MacKenzie Bezos To Become Richest Woman In The World

Every decision comes at a price. However, rarely we see the price being a whopping $66 Billion. After a 25 year long marriage, Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie have decided to call it quits. The divorce came as surprise to rest of the world when it was announced via a twitter post.

“As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends, We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other.”

“If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again.”

The statement was put out officially and no formal information has been disseminated after.

The couple as claimed by Jeff, was an unusual one. The couple met when Mackenzie was only 23 and was interviewing for a research position at the Manhattan hedge fund. She was aspiring to become a writer but worked at DE Shaw to pay the bills. Soon after she pursued her writing career after getting a degree from Princeton University.

Jeff was 6 years her senior and worked in the office next to hers. They fell in love quickly and got married 6 months after. They loved to Seattle from Manhattan to pursue Jeff’s dream of opening an online book store.

She was there from the very beginning and for anyone who thinks that she wasn’t an imperative part of the company, they are highly mistaken. According to a 1999 Wired report, she negotiated the company’s first freight contracts from a Starbucks attached to a Barnes & Noble near their home. She described the experience while offering a scathing review – on Amazon.com, expectedly – of Brad Stone’s The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon.

Cut to today, MacKenzie, 48, might just become the world’s richest woman after the L’Oréal heiress Françoise Bettencourt Meyers, whose net worth is estimated at $45.6bn. This is only if she receives half of her husband’s wealth, a common practice according to Washington state law in case of a lack of a prenup. If things unfold this way, she will be entitled to a part of the $137 billion and a stake in Amazon.
