Jeff Bezos And Wife, MacKenzie Bezos, Announce Divorce

Jeff and Mac Kenzie Bezos attend an event

And there has never been more money than in this case.

Bezos tops the list of rich Americans and is now the wealthiest person in the world with an estimated net worth of $137 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Amazon, initially an online bookstore, was launched in July 1994 in the couple's garage.

Bezos started Amazon after he married MacKenzie and she recalled the early days of the company in a 2013 review on the site.

The Amazon boss confirmed the split on his Twitter account. When Amazon showcased its new biospheres, the plant-filled architectural centerpiece of its Seattle headquarters, the couple toured the building with a horticulturist. Jeff Bezos also bought a mansion in a swanky Washington D.C. neighbourhood previous year for $US23 million.

The pair have four children.

Amazon didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. Ultimately they'll seek a divorce decree stating that the couple's property will be divided according to the agreement. However, affairs in his private life are seemingly not going so well. While Oracle Corp.'s Larry Ellison has been through multiple divorces, none has affected his stake in the software maker.

Shares of Amazon gained 0.24 percent as of 12:54 p.m. ET. That left Amazon with a market value of $US811 billion, more than any other publicly traded company in the US.

The couple announced their decision to divorce in statement signed by both parties and posted to Twitter.

Ms Bezos met her husband when interviewing for a job at a NY hedge fund, according to a 2013 profile in Vogue.

Nobody really knows what "loving exploration" is or why these two broke up, and quite frankly, they probably don't care.

With that kind of settlement, MacKenzie would be the world's richest woman.

MacKenzie Bezos is a novelist, and has written books including "The Testing of Luther Albright" and "Traps".

Amazon, formed 25 years ago, this week eclipsed Microsoft to become the world's most valuable listed company.

The company has since expanded into an e-commerce giant.
