Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' divorce finalized, wife MacKenzie gets United States dollars 38 billion

Bezos Divorce Finalizes Sets Stage for $38 Billion Amazon Stake Transfer

Founder and CEO of US-based retailing giant, Amazon.com Inc., billionaire entrepreneur Jeff Bezos, had finalized his divorce at a $38.3 billion settlement after 25 years of conjugal life on Friday, the 5th of July, a Bloomberg report had revealed.

The Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has sent a barbed birthday card to Jeff Bezos to mark Amazon's 25th anniversary, wishing the company "many happy tax returns" and demanding it pays more United Kingdom tax, pays its staff better and improves working conditions.

The settlement has taken MacKenzie to 22nd place on the "Bloomberg Billionaires Index", a ranking of the world's 500 richest people but she has chose to donate half of her $38 billion worth alimony to investor Warren Buffett's philanthropic campaign "the Giving Pledge".

The two married long before Amazon's 1993 creation. He has noticeably refused to sign onto the Giving Pledge, though he praised his ex-wife on Twitter for her philanthropic commitment. "I love you, alive girl". The story was reported on in the mainstream media, especially in the case of the National Enquirer, who published text messages between them.

Tesla was mostly struggling in ramping up the production of its long-promised mass-market electric vehicle, the Tesla Model 3. Handily, the Tesla Model 3 earned a five-star rating for overall crashworthiness throughout all of Euro NCAP's testing .

Her ex-husband will keep most of the couple's shares, representing roughly 12 per cent of Amazon's stock, equal to around $114.8 billion.

Last year Bezos launched a new charity organisation the Bezos Day One Fund, though critics argue that the world's richest man could be far more generous with his wealth.

Both parties have pledged to give away their vast fortunes, however, as the years go by, they continue to generate billions.
