Divorcing Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos reportedly had no prenup

Update Jeff and Mac Kenzie Bezos $137B Divorce Involves No Prenup

Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder, was forced to announce his divorce ahead of a tell-all story about his eight-month affair with a former TV presenter, it was reported on Thursday. "As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have chose to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends", the statement shared via Twitter read.

"This is such an over-owned company and this gives them an excuse to say "Maybe I'll trim some back because it adds a new question mark", he said.

The National Enquirer publication which is found in its latest issue released today, said that its team tracked Jeff and Lauren across five states and 40,000 miles, 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 couple, who have been married 25 years, announced their divorce on Wednesday over Twitter. According to SEC filings, Bezos owns approximately 80 million shares of the company.

Even though Bezos wasn't rich at the time, the divorce is likely to make his ex-wife the richest woman in the world. She served as the initial host on Fox's So You Think You Can Dance, and has been a contributor to TV shows including The View, Larry King Live, Showbiz Tonight, and The Joy Behar Show. The wife of Patrick Whitesell, executive chairman of WME-IMG holding company Endeavor, Sanchez is a former anchor of Good Day L.A. on KTLA Channel 5. She also has a 17-year-old son with ex Tony Gonzalez.

Victorian man charged over suspect embassy packages
More than a dozen foreign offices received suspicious packages on Wednesday, including the USA and British missions in Melbourne. The substance in the packages is "suspected to have been sourced from his Shepparton home" in Northern Victoria, police said.

The divorce between Bezos and wife, MacKenzie, may be more complicated than originally expected.

A source told the magazine that Sanchez and her husband had been officially separated since fall.

Citing "sources with direct knowledge", TMZ reports that the Bezos' did not have a prenuptial agreement, so their assets will be split down the middle. Washington state, where the couple plans to divorce, has so-called "50-50" divorce laws, meaning couples generally divide their assets evenly.

The divorce deal could significantly dilute his ownership and control of Amazon. "I'm in the process of converting my Amazon lottery winnings into a much lower price of admission so we can go explore the solar system".

The net worth of Jeff Bezos has been estimated at $137 billion.
