Whooooa. This is insane. So the creator of Amazon, Jess Bezos and his wife of 25 years, McKenzie are getting a divorce... a $136 billion one. 

Jeff is by far the richest man in the world, worth over $136 BILLION. Most of that is tied up in Amazon stock, so that's probably how MacKenzie will be paid whatever settlement she's getting.


If she gets even HALF her husband's fortune, she'll be the 5th richest person in the world, and by far the richest WOMAN in the world.

She'll also be worth more than Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
