Jeff Bezos' Alleged Texts With Lauren Sanchez Surface After Divorce Announcement

Jeff Bezos' Alleged Texts With Lauren Sanchez Surface After Divorce Announcement

The divorce is further complicated by the fact the couple reside in Washington in the USA which is a "community property state" which means all assets and debts accrued during the marriage are considered equally owned by both spouses, unless a prenuptial agreement states otherwise. "As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have made a decision to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends", read the statement signed by both of them".

Most analysts and fund managers are largely sanguine and say the divorce will not lead to any significant change in the company's leadership or its growth prospects.

Amazon did not immediately return a request for comment from Fox News. That was after initially buying a stake in late December and naming Amazon among his "best ideas list".

"His announced divorce gives me pause for thought".

The twice-divorced commander-in-chief is a frequent critic of Bezos, who also owns the Washington Post - accusing his paper of being Amazon's "chief lobbyist" and claiming his online emporium is ripping off the US Postal Service.

The Amazon CEO and MacKenzie, who have been married for 25 years, share four children: three sons and a daughter.

They say they followed Bezos and Sanches "across five states and 40,000 miles, tailed them in private jets, swanky limos, helicopter rides, romantic hikes, five-star hotel hideaways, intimate dinner dates and "quality time" in hidden love nests".

Any transfer of Jeff Bezos' stock would be subject to US Securities and Exchange Commission disclosure requirements. Aside from Amazon, Bezos founded rocket company Blue Origin and bought the Washington Post for $250 million earlier this decade.

Even if MacKenzie Bezos should eventually depart with half of Bezos' wealth, valued at US$137 billion (NZ$202 billion) atop Bloomberg's Billionaires Index, the Amazon founder would remain among the top four most wealthy.

Mr Bezos is the founder and chief executive of Amazon, which recently took Microsoft's spot as the most valuable U.S. firm.

Even though Bezos wasn't rich at the time, the divorce is likely to make his ex-wife the richest woman in the world.

'Their marriage has been off and on for a while, and they tried hard to fix things, but in the fall they officially separated, ' a source told the magazine. Any impact would be short-term in nature.

"He is given control of the company because shareholders like him and his vision, not because he has 50 per cent of the stock".
