Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos ‘has been having an eight month affair with a 49-year-old TV anchor, sharing selfies together’ and only announced his $140bn split from wife of 25 years because the fling was to be made public

The Amazon’s CEO and his wife of 25 years, who have four children together, announced their decision to divorce in a joint statement on Wednesday. “We want to make people aware of a development in our lives,” the statement began. “As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends.”

“My assumption, especially since they live in Washington state where property is split between husband and wife, my assumption is that she is going to get a significant amount of shares,”.

According to multiple reports, the Amazon CEO has been secretly seeing former Good Day L.A. co-host Lauren Sanchez. The news of their alleged relationship comes just hours after Bezos announced that he and his wife MacKenzie Bezos were getting a divorce after 25 years of marriage.

Photos of Bezos, 54, and Sanchez, 49, are set to hit the newsstands on Thursday, in an edition of the National Enquirer that the magazine says ‘exposes WHAT REALLY tore apart Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie after 25 years’.

Neither Bezos nor Whitesell has commented publicly about their rumored relationship.

MacKenzie Bezos Could Become World’s Richest Woman With Divorce

The Forbes editor predicted MacKenzie will “get shares in the company” because Bezos’ wealth is tied in directly with Amazon stock. Kroll believes the shares will be in her name, but he will “probably still be voting with them”. Even in MacKenzie gets 50 percent of the shares, she would still be one of the wealthiest people in the world. Kroll explained, “If she were to get half, which is within the realm of possibility, she would be the 5th richest person in the world. She would by far be the richest woman in the world.” 

So far, there’s every indication that the Bezoses’ split will be an amicable one.
