Amazon boss Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie are divorcing

Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, said in a media statement that he and his wife "decided to divorce and continue [their] shared lives as friends."

The joint statement from Jeff and MacKenzie was shared on Thursday, and the couple explained that they were incredibly lucky to have met each other. 

They added: "If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again. We've had such a great life together as a married couple."

They are parting on good terms and said that they "see wonderful ahead" for each other and will remain in each other's lives.

Jeff and Mackenzie will continue to be parents, friends, partners in ventures, as well as "individuals pursuing adventures." Jeff said: 

"Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends."

With an estimated worth of $136 billion, Bezos is the richest person in the world. The couple didn't say how their divorce would affect his business. 

Bezos found Amazon more than two decades ago but currently owns only 16% of the company. However, Amazon compromises more than 95% of his fortune. 

If Mackenzie receives half of her husband's assets, it will make her the fifth richest person in the world, and their divorce would be the largest settlement in history, even if the payout is only 1%. 

The couple shares four children and founded the company one year after tying the knot. Apart from her business ventures, Mackenzie is also a creative writing major at Princeton. 

Bezos is the first person in history who exceeded the $100 billion mark and has interesting ways of spending his money. 

He is the largest landowner in the country and owns properties in Washington, California, Texas, and Manhattan. 

He also owns all the rich boy toys, such as private jets, fancy cars, and Blue Origin, a company that will "support large-scale human space flight."
