The Amazon CEO and his wife MacKenzie have officially finalized their hefty divorce.
Mackenzie says she’s “finished the process of dissolving my marriage with Jeff,” and says she’s given him all of her interests in the Washington Post and 75% of their Amazon stock. She’s also surrendered her interest in Blue Origin, the aerospace company Jeff started in 2000.
Jeff will also be paying out a generous portion of what was the couple’s $149 billion net worth.
Jeff and MacKenzie, who married back in 1993, just six months after meeting and way before Amazon, have four children together ranging in age from 13 to 18.
The ex-couple both went to Princeton, but they met in New York when he was vice president of a hedge fund. After getting married, they quit their Wall Street jobs and moved to Seattle, where Jeff started an online bookstore in his garage- the beginning of Amazon.
MacKenzie is an award-winning novelist and the executive director of an anti-bullying org. called Bystander Revolution.
The division of their assets could’ve been complicated by how much they have, and not only in cash. The pair own 400,000 acres of property and are two of the biggest landholders in the country. But, the split appears to be fair and amicable.
The now-exes announced their plans to split following what they called a ‘trial separation.’ Jeff has already moved on to former So You Think You Can Dance host Lauren Sanchez, who many speculated he was having an affair with while he was married.
Glad the divorce was able to be civil.
