Lauren Sanchez files for divorce from Patrick Whitesell

Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos will retain voting control of his entire $143 billion stake in the company under a divorce settlement with his wife Mac Kenzie Bezos

That will give her a 4% stake of Amazon, according to a court filing pending approval of their divorce. His net worth is an estimated $110 billion.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie Bezos, have finalized their divorce.

After months of speculation surrounding the future of Amazon and the personal valuation of Bezos, the ex-couple revealed on Twitter how their stock is being divided.

According to Forbes, the Amazon shares alone will make MacKenzie the world's third-richest woman while Jeff will remain the world's richest person.

They are asking for joint custody of their two children, and neither is asking for child or spousal support.

The ex-Mrs. Bezos said that she is, "Grateful to have finished the process of dissolving my marriage with Jeff with support from each other and everyone who reached out to us in kindness, and looking forward to next phase as co-parents and friends".

"Excited about my own plans".

"I think the goal was to do as little damage as possible to the Amazon stock and I think they've achieved that", said Emily Pollock, a family and divorce lawyer and partner at Kasowitz, Benson, Torres. She also agreed to transfer all voting rights to her now former husband as well as all her interests in the Washington Post and Blue Origin, Jeff's aerospace firm.

"I'm grateful for her support and for her kindness in this process and am very much looking forward to our new relationship as friends and co-parents", he continued.

'She is resourceful and brilliant and loving and as our futures unroll, I know I'll always be learning from her'. The announcement caused ripples; with worries that Jeff could end up losing his voting power at Amazon or that he together with MacKenzie would liquate their large stakes at the giant online retailer.

When the National Enquirer, controlled by President Donald Trump's ally David Pecker, threatened to release lurid, intimate pictures of Bezos and Sanchez, Bezos fought back by releasing the details of his exchanges publicly.

After Mr Bezos and his wife announced in January that they would part, a U.S. tabloid magazine published details, including private messages, of an extramarital affair with Ms Sánchez. The tabloid's report contained photographs and text messages that Bezos had allegedly sent to Sanchez.
