Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos are getting divorced after 25 years of marriage

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos tweets his divorce announcement

Amazon, formed 25 years ago, this week eclipsed Microsoft to become the world's most valuable listed company.

"We have chose to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends", the statement read.

Two days ago, reports said Jeff and 48 year old Mackenzie who had stuck with each other in a marriage that lasted 25 years were parting ways through a divorce.

Jeff made the announcement on his Twitter account on Wednesday, . and said the couple shared a great life together and will remain friends.

The duo expressed their gratitude and further wrote, "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". This means that any property or debt acquired during the marriage will be shared equally between the couple by the court if they can not negotiate an agreement themselves. Some have run the numbers to find out that if Bezos were to split his eye-watering $137 billion fortune with his wife, it could make her the wealthiest woman in the world.

"During a blockbuster four-month investigation, The ENQUIRER tracked Bezos, who turns 55 on January 12, and secret lover Sanchez across five states and 64,000, 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", the National Enquirer wrote in a story teasing its upcoming investigation. It also worth noting that the two have four children between them.


Amazon shares ended up 0.2 percent on Wednesday.

"When you have loving and supportive people in your life, like MacKenzie, my parents, my grandfather, my grandmother, you end up being able to take risks", he said. MacKenzie's primary influence on Bezos and Amazon was to provide encouragement in the early years and support through tumultuous times, one of the people said.

In 2012, they donated US$2.5 million to a Washington-state campaign to legalise same-sex nuptials there.

From modest beginnings, Amazon branched out into nearly every product category, taking on established retailers such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

She was one of the first employees of Amazon at its founding and in 2014 launched Bystander Revolution, an anti-bullying organisation. She also heads a company called Black Ops Aviation.

The billionaire, from Albuquerque, New Mexico, is the founder of Amazon. He also owns the Washington Post and rocket company Blue Origin.
