World’s Richest Man Announces Divorce After 25 Years Of Marriage

Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man and founder of Amazon, on Wednesday, announced his divorce from his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie.

He made the announcement via his Twitter handle.

In a statement signed by him and Mackenzie, Bezos said they had a great life together as a couple and will remain friends.

“We want to make people aware of a development in our lives,” the statement read.

“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.”

The couple married in 1993, one year before Bezos started Amazon.

MacKenzie, 48, is a novelist and founder of Bystander Revolution, an anti-bullying organisation.

The couple have four children.

Bezos was named the richest man on Forbes’ annual world billionaires list of 2018, with a net worth of $112 billion.

He is $22 billion richer than Bill Gates, Microsoft co-founder, who came second place with $90 billion net worth.
