Jeff Bezos, World’s Richest Man Set To Divorce Wife Of 25 Years

Head of Amazon Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie Bezos arrive for the Axel Springer award


The richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos has announced his divorce from his novelist wife of 25 years, Mackenzie.

Bezos took to his verified Twitter handle to release a statement which was signed by him and his soon-to-be- ex-wife.

The couple’s statement read, “We want to make people aware of a development in our lives.


“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.”

“We’ve had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures.

“Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends.”

Mr Bezos is the richest man in modern history. His wealth increased by over $60billion between 2017 and 2018 which places his worth higher than that of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, who had previously topped the rich lists – even at his peak in 1999.


Bezos is currently worth $160bn.
