MacKenzie Bezos announced on Twitter on Thursday that she and Jeff Bezos have completed the process of dissolving their marriage, leaving her with $35.6 billion in Amazon stock.
MacKenzie Bezos said she was “happy” to be giving her ex-husband 75 percent of their stock in Amazon along with voting control of her shares. She also relinquished to him all of her interests in The Washington Post and the Blue Origin aerospace company.
According to CNBC, the settlement would make her the fourth-richest woman in the world. She ranks behind Francoise Bettencourt Meyers, Alice Walton and Jacqueline Mars, according to Bloomberg.
According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, MacKenzie Bezos will retain shares representing about 4 percent of Amazon’s outstanding common stock, making her the third-biggest shareholder at the company, behind her ex-husband and Vanguard. He remains the richest person in the world, even after losing $35.6 billion in Amazon stock.
