The richest couple in the world unveiled the terms of their divorce agreement on Thursday, which will decide the fate of one of the world’s largest companies by market value, Amazon.
Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man, founder of the Amazon e-commerce website, and his wife, who was separated after revealing his involvement in a relationship with a Los Angeles broadcaster, he will receive 75 percent of the company’s shares and all voting rights, And the wife will have only $ 36 billion of Jeff’s wealth, which does not make her the richest woman in the world, although it may be the most expensive divorce settlement ever.
As part of the disengagement, McKinsey Bezos will also give up her interests in the Washington Post, which her husband bought for only $ 250 million in a surprise deal in 2013.
The Guardian says the announcement answers questions about the direction the largest e-retailer will go since the news of the couple’s separation has been revealed. The company will remain under the control of Jeff Bezos.
