Where did MacKenzie Bezos go with all the millions of dollars?
To be honest, we have always been a little envious of MacKenzie Bezos. Not only was she married to the richest man in the world, but when she divorced him, she walked away with the hugest settlement in history!
In 2019 Jeff Bezos announced on a cold Thursday evening that he would give a 4% stake in Amazon—which at that time was worth more than $35 billion and is worth almost $80 billion today —to his wife, MacKenzie, as part of their pending divorce, making it the largest divorce settlement in history ever.
Bravo! She’s our hero and we think more women should emulate her. If it’s not working out, walk away and smile all the way to the bank.
Here’s a list of other women who are our heroines, living large on their settlements
Alec Wildenstein and Jocelyn Wildenstein, 1999 — $3.8 billion.
Rupert Murdoch and Anna Torv, 1999 — $1.7 billion. …
