MacKenzie Bezos gains 4 percent of Amazon in divorce

Head of Amazon Jeff Bezos and his wife Mac Kenzie Bezos arrive for the Axel Springer award ceremony in Berlin Germany

In her statement, MacKenzie Bezos says that she's granting Jeff Bezos all of her interests in the Washington Post and Blue Origin, and 75% of the Amazon stock co-owned by the pair and voting control over the shares she's retaining.

That was MacKenzie Bezos' first tweet, corresponding with a petition for divorce filed Thursday, according to an Amazon securities filing.

Jeff's 12 percent stake is now worth around $100billion which allows him to retain his title as the richest man in the world because he still has $4billion more than Bill Gates.

She's also "happy to be giving him all of my interests" in the Post, Blue Origin, and 75 percent of the stock, MacKenzie Bezos said.

The former Mrs. Bezos will be left with $35.6 billion while Jeff Bezos will retain a $106.7 billion stake in the company.

"Grateful to have finished the process of dissolving my marriage with Jeff with support from each other and everyone who reach out to us in kindness", MacKenzie Bezos wrote on Twitter.

Their marriage lasted 25 years and produced four children.

While MacKenzie's shares payout is only half what she is entitled to, it is still 10 times more than the second most expensive divorce settlement in history.

Jeff Bezos, in a Twitter message of his own, said his now ex-wife has been "an extraordinary partner, ally, and mother".

Jeff Bezos past year began dating Lauren Sanchez, the wife of Endeavor executive chairman Patrick Whitesell. "Grateful for the past as I look forward to what comes next".

MacKenzie Bezos and Jeff Bezos settled their divorce on Thursday.
