The world's most expensive divorce between Jeff and McKinsey Bezos has not affected Amazon founder Jeff Bezos as the richest man in the world, according to a recent report from Business Insider.
The couple released separate statements last week announcing that they had completed the process of resolving their 25-year marriage. As part of the divorce agreement, McKinsey Bezos said it would give Jeff Bezos 75 percent of their Amazon shares and all of its interests in the Washington Post.
According to reports, Amazon's 25% stake in McKinsey Bezos is sufficient to become one of the richest women in the world, with a net wealth of about $ 35.7 billion at Amazon's current share price.
However, the list of billionaires is not a new place for her ex-husband, Jeff Bezos. The Amazon founder and CEO earned the title of the richest person since Bill Gates passed him in October 2017. Bezos has been steadily building his fortune ever since, and his net worth according to Forbes billionaires was $ 131 billion .
But with the divorce settled, his 75 percent stake will give him nearly 59.1 million shares in Amazon. Based on current market prices, Bezos's share after the divorce is about $ 107.4 billion.
