Quote:Jeff Bezos has announced he and his wife are divorcing ... and a record $137 BILLION is on the line. Bezos said on Twitter that -- after what he called a trial separation -- he and his wife, MacKenzie, have now decided to end their 25-year marriage.  Bezos, who is 54, made it clear the divorce is amicable, saying, "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." And, this is interesting ... he clearly views the marriage as a success ... "If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again." They met in New York when he was vice president of a hedge fund. He had actually interviewed her for a job. They married in 1993 -- 6 months after they met -- and they quit their Wall Street jobs and moved to Seattle where Jeff opened an online bookstore -- the origin of Amazon. Just like Steve Jobs, Bezos started the bookstore in his garage.

The multi-billion dollar question ... is there a prenup? They live in Washington, which is a community property state. That means any assets accrued during the marriage are split 50/50, unless, of course, there's a prenup. There are signs there was NOT a prenup ... Jeff reportedly became a millionaire in 1997.

This is a developing drama.

The National Enquirer had been following Bezos and his love interest, Lauren Sanchez, for four months.  And they're about to publish steamy photos:

And the plot thickens:  Bezos owns the Washington Post, no friend of Trump.  The National Enquirer's CEO is David Pecker, a friend of Trump.  The Enquirer published hit pieces on Trump's opponents during the campaign, and bought off stories from the women who slept with Trump.  So possibly a political dimension to all of this.

I wonder if Bezos had his ex sign the divorce papers before this exposure?   Huh

All of that Amazon.com money was made while they were married. He quit work at a hedge fund and started Amazon.com in his garage with money borrowed from family. I highly doubt his wife signed a prenup. Prenups had a negative stigma back in the early 90s, and Bezos wasn't worth much. Although Elon Musk's first wife said, she was suckered into signing a prenup after they got married, because Elon told her it was a business requirement. Bezos won't take half, but she will remain a multi-billionaire.

As a guess, I am assuming she stuck it out and supported him while he built Amazon.com, but now that its a huge success and he's a billionaire, she rightfully expected him to pull away and spend more time with her and the family. Unfortunately, he's probably investing even more time at the office. So she leaves the marriage. That said, who knows. She could have been a big fan of Blacked.com, and got caught with her black lover.

My first thought was it would leave a HUGE mark but then I thought "after a divorce, if you have 10 Billion in reserve for a rainy day in case you blow through your 65 Billion, you will be just fine. Then I busted out the calculator and realized it's a mental thing and I'm not spending time worrying about a guy who could buy t-bills and earn over 2 Billion a year in interest!  I'd rather think about my shitty NFL team, or what scenes I'd like to see this year on the forum!

Someone from the press asked Trump about Bezos' divorce as he was getting ready to head south and Trump's answer sure sounded like his friend had given him a heads up on what they had.

I bet that someone who has managed to surpass Bill Gates in total fortune has already a plan about getting a divorce and not giving half of his fortune away

The problem with this is that he wasn't rich when he married her. He was just some guy working at a hedge fund. Good money, but not billionaire money.

And there is no escaping community property. It is specifically designed by feminists to wreck rich people.

He's fucked. But, 67 billion is still a lot of money.

Lauren Sanchez has GoldDigger written all over her.

She bragged and shared her raunchy texts with Bezos with "friends". Seems to jump from one rich dude's bed to a richer dude's bed, until she bagged the richest guy in the world. This will not end well.
