Amazon founder Bezos' divorce final with US$38b settlement

Corbyn wishes Amazon 'many happy tax returns' on its 25th anniversary

It's official. MacKenzie and Jeff Bezos are divorced after 25 years of marriage.

According to a Bloomberg report, a King County judge in Washington (Seattle) signed an order on Friday setting the stage for the transfer of 19.7 million shares of Amazon.com (4 per cent holding that is valued at $38 billion) to MacKenzie.

MacKenzie Bezos becomes the 20th wealthiest billionaire on the 2019 Forbes Rich List, ahead of Telsa's Elon Musk and Alibaba founder Jack Ma.

Corbyn's birthday message to the world's richest man, who has just finalised the world's biggest divorce settlement, worth $38bn, says: "Dear Jeff". The Bezoses announced in April what their divorce agreement entailed: MacKenzie Bezos would grant the Amazon CEO all of her interests in the Washington Post and Blue Origin, and voting control over her stake in the company.

In May, the 49-year-old San Francisco native signed on with the Giving Pledge, an initiative of Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett that challenges the world's richest individuals to give more than half their wealth to charity.

Jeff and Mckenzie married in 1993 and have four children.

But the union collapsed after news emerged in January that Jeff had been allegedly cheating on his wife with former television anchor Lauren Sanchez.

Both parties have pledged to give away their vast fortunes, however, as the years go by, they continue to generate billions.

MacKenzie has made a decision to donate half of her $38 billion worth alimony to investor Warren Buffett " s philanthropic campaign - the Giving Pledge.

"MacKenzie is going to be unbelievable and thoughtful and effective at philanthropy, and I'm proud of her", Bezos tweeted.
