Is Jeff Bezos's wife the greatest investor of all time?

6일 전

Jeff Bezos's soon to be ex wife may end up being the richest woman in the world.

In a news announcement several days ago, it was revealed that Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie would be getting a divorce after 25 years of marriage.

This normally wouldn't be headline news except that currently Jeff Bezos is one of the richest people in the world (the richest depending on what day you check Amazon's stock price), with a net worth of roughly $140 billion.

This is especially interesting because Jeff and MacKenzie apparently didn't sign a prenuptial agreement some 25 years ago when they got married.

This means that MacKenzie may be entitled to half of everything Jeff owns!

Which would currently equate to roughly $70 billion.

That would mark this as the largest divorce settlement ever and make MacKenzie the richest woman in the world.

Not a bad return for 25 years!

Perhaps when people start talking about great investors, they need to mention MacKenzie...

Check out what Amazon's stock was worth when she married Jeff and what it is worth now that she is leaving:

As you can see, she was willing to play the long game!

Perhaps we should be asking what her thoughts are on bitcoin! ;)

In her defense though, it doesn't sound like this may have been her first choice.

It sounds like the split likely had to do with Jeff secretly seeing another woman on the side for the last several months, though the timing worked out pretty good for MacKenzie never the less.

Stay informed my friends.

I thought so as well lol. I had not heard about this until now. I started off thinking "Oh. well. That's kind of sad." Until I get to "...likely had to do with Jeff secretly seeing another woman on the side."
Meh. Let her have her 50%.

Your tone is a little offensive. Not everyone is a gold-digger. And when I say everyone I mean every woman because men never get targeted with that stereotype.

Regardless, I'm more interested in that graph. It looks almost exactly the same as Bitcoin did last year before it crashed into the dirt. Great Depression part 2 incoming?

Yea, the tone was mostly meant to be humorous. Divorces are anything but. There was a little blurb at the end about how he was caught cheating, which likely had to do with the divorce. Realistically thinking she planned on marrying him 25 years ago (when he wasn't extremely rich) for his money that would be there 25 years later is pretty ridiculous. Meant to be humorous and ironic only. :)

·

I thought the same thing at first, until I read the comment about him cheating on her. I find the tone to be a bit more humorous now. Maybe OP can chime in.

·
·

Yep, exactly. I probably should point out that she likely likely never married him for his money as he was worth much much less when they first married 25 years prior. It was just meant as a joke. :)

Charts was the first thing I noticed too. My bearish sentiment on the US market over the coming years may come true if AMZN breaks down.

I want to date her 😂👍😂

interesting post @jrcornel, we must also understand what we are calling wealth is mostly in the form of stock, stock option and federal reserve notes (bank credit).

All of the above instruments have assumed value, meaning they are as valuable as what others are willing to trade for it. Should the stock market crash and there are no buyers and only seller, the value of Jeff Bezos and his wife or ex-wife would come down to fair market value, Which could be zero. True wealth is health and understanding.

Great post and perspective @jrcornel
Keep your kung fu strong my friend

Lol. Yes.

lol, have not looked on it that way yet 😄 MacKenzie best investor

Damn, for a smart businessman Jeff Bezos can be really dumb. Lol

She could have tried to work things out if he wasn't this rich, but it is because he is this rich that is why she wants this divorce. She sounds like a con artist to me.

Yah, the worst crime on earth. 😎

·
·
·

Not sure if this is serious or not, but often it is pretty tough to work things out when the other person wants to sleep with someone else... It takes two to stay married.

·
·
·
·

Hmm ok😎

·

After cheating there is not much to do to work things out tbh

·
·

Yah, she hates him that much for cheating on her, but she somehow still loves his money, hahahahaha!!!

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

hahahahahaha!!! OK. The power of women.

·

That is a helluva claim to make about someone you know almost nothing about.

·
·

Well, you have been in a relationship with somebody for almost a lifetime and you want to leave him now because you found out that he was cheating on you. Sounds obvious to me.

·
·
·

lol what? Are you implying that people don't get divorced over cheating unless there is money involved?

·
·
·
·

In this case, yes!!!

She's use to bulls.... I guess. So no wonder she had a good run.

The most outstanding and undervalued strategy of all. I know lots of girls are doing that with different rich guys. But your example is one of the best once :)

There's a nice movie called Heartbreakers. It's about those girls :)

Definitely reposing this. Great post, It's just this proves how outdated the whole marriage agreement it.. She certainly had no contributions towards the success of amazon, which is where the wealth comes from. Her portion of what she takes from the marriage, should be whatever she contributed.. just seems to make more sense this way. Also to those who suggest a prenup, I don't think Jeff could have predicted his future success 25yrs in advance. lol. But at least she wasn't a gold digger (:

He is a moron for cheating... that might have been the most expensive affair in history!

What will be interesting is that most of the net worth is probably stock of the Company which could make her one of the largest shareholders as well!

That's fucking hilarious.

Not sure if she deserves that much of his fortune...but not like we will hear even a fraction of the story. Perhaps she earned her fair share...even if it's far more than most would get for dealing with their crazy spouse.

Unless their marriage was already soured and just not officially separated...but then he was a fool. Or they had an open marriage...and she's using this as an excuse to seize wealth. In either case, she's quite clever.

Most wedding vows don't include to be sexually chaste other than your partner...just many would argue that it's not "honouring and obeying"...but many things could be viewed as against that.

It is unlikely that we will hear about many if any of the other things that could have led to this point. Humans are complex creatures. It is rarely as simple as just "cheating".

Seems like what tiger woods nanny did 😂

Yea, though that was pennies compared to what this lady will get... Also in both cases it sounds like it was the guy that was ready for something else.
