Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced that he and his wife of 25 years are divorcing.
The couple will also have to split assets, including the 400,000 acres of property they own.
National Enquirer who first broke the news, says that the relationship began before both couples separated and they have proof. As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have chose to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends. "We've had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures".
A source close to the Bezos told DailyMail.com that the Amazon founder only began seeing Sanchez after separating from his wife, however, the National Enquirer claims the affair went on behind their spouses' backs. He and his wife described each other as "cherished friends" and gave the impression it was amicable. He is now the richest man in the world.
Although the founder, chairman, CEO, and president of Amazon is now listed as the most wealthy man in the world, Jeff Bezos is reportedly set to lose a huge fraction of his fortune due to his impending divorce from his wife of 25 years.
"We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other", the statement reads.
Early on Wednesday morning, after 25 years of marriage, the Amazon chief executive tweeted. It's important to note that there was reportedly no prenuptial agreement.
At one point his fortune soared to more than $160 billion after his company surpassed Microsoft to become Wall Street's most valuable company.
