Amazon founder’s ex-wife may become the richest woman post-divorce

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and Mackenzie’s divorce shook the world of technology when it was announced last week.
It was quickly speculated how the shares and profits of Amazon would be divided between the two, said Karin Lundell, a partner at a law firm Rower LLC.
Bezos had taken to Twitter to announce an end to the 25-year long relationship which saw many ups and downs and “trial separation”.According to Bloomberg, Mackenzie could very easily become the richest woman in the world after the division of assets. With $137.2 billion, Jeff Bezos is the world’s richest person and due to her former husband’s assets, Mackenzie would have a net worth of $69 billion.
