The decision to divorce comes after a trial separation, according to a statement posted Wednesday on Jeff Bezos' Twitter account. Both Bezos and MacKenzie signed the announcement that ended with a vow to remain "cherished friends". "If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all over again".

While it's unclear whether the Bezoses have a prenuptial agreement, a split is unlikely to be as acrimonious.

Bezos doesn't splurge on supercars like most billionaires, but that's not to say he doesn't spend money on vehicles.

With a fortune estimated at around $137 billion, Jeff Bezos is rated the world's wealthiest man by Forbes and Bloomberg.

Even though they're divorcing, Bezos and Mackenzie will keep working together on projects.

Why it matters: Jeff Bezos is the founder and public face of one of the world's most successful companies.

Bezos has credited MacKenzie, 48, for her support when he uprooted the young couple from NY to Seattle so he could launch the online bookseller that grew into one of the world's largest retailers.

Under Bezos, Amazon launched the Kindle e-reader and revolutionised the way books are distributed and read.
