Everyone is talking about Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie’s impending divorce.
In case you missed it: Bezos, who is one of the world’s richest men, announced today that they have decided to divorce after 25 years of marriage.
This news came as a surprise to many people, and this is because Bezos’s stake in Amazon is worth more than $130 billion. While the parents to four children plan to remain “cherished friends,” as well as “partners” in ventures and projects, many people can’t help but wonder how their divorce proceeding will go. And this is because this divorce could become the most expensive in history, given the complexities of marital law.
And here’s what folks are saying on Twitter:
