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.

Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon.com Inc., announced on Wednesday that he and his novelist wife MacKenzie were ending their 25-year marriage.

The joint statement the pair put out on Twitter appeared to be amicable with Jeff, 54, and MacKenzie, 48, who share four children, vowing to remain a family and 'cherished friends'.https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6573811/Jeff-Bezos-divorce-affect-fortune-Amazon-control.html

This is probably one of the most expensive divorce in history and for sure Jeff Bezo has anticipated the changes that may occur in his company because of it.

It won't because it's not wages.

They were married for 25 years and got married before all the richness came so she deserves half of the wealth!! And 68 bln as leftover for Bezos is still above poverty line!! He will survive!!

We do not know what efforts and sacrifices she made to create a healthy marriage/ circumstances which made him excel in business. And what also counts for me is that they got married before all that wealth came into play. So it would be no more than fairness if she would get half of the wealth!

She helped as brand ambassador, chauffeur, accountant and administrative assistant at the beginning.

Be careful about your husband when he starts to work out suddenly at his 40s, lol!
