Jeff Bezos is currently the richest man in the world, but met the woman, MacKenzie, before he founded the e-commerce company Amazon. They separated and with a record divorce agreement worth $ 35 billion (31 billion euros).
According to the agreement, Bezos owns 75% of the shares the pair held in the e-commerce giant, which gives it control of the company. The number of shares the woman receives guarantees only 4% of the company, but this is equivalent to 31 billion euros.
MacKenzie Bezos, 48, has agreed to abandon participation in the Washington Post and space travel company Blue Origin.
This agreement surpasses the previous record and was almost ten times less: 3.5 billion euros agreed between the art dealer Alec Wilderstein and the wife Jocelyn.
The former former Mrs. Bezos made the announcement on Twitter, saying she was "grateful to have completed the process of dissolving the marriage and having support from each other" and believes that the future will be promising.
Jeff Bezos did the same, and at the same time praising the ex-wife, "extraordinary companion and mother," "a brilliant woman."
