Amazon's Jeff Bezos has no prenup, $67B on the line

New reports have said that world's richest man and founder of Amazon Jeff Bezos was having an affair with TV host Lauren Sanchez while married to Mackenzie Bezos.

"As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have made a decision to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends", they wrote.

"This is such an over-owned company and this gives them an excuse to say "Maybe I'll trim some back because it adds a new question mark", he said.

According to United States tabloid National Enquirer, Bezos, 54, and Lauren Sanchez, 49, a helicopter pilot and former Fox anchor, have been dating since June.

The couple announced their divorce by releasing a joint statement.

Bacarella, however, said he is not concerned because even if MacKenzie Bezos liquidated a stake that could be as high as eight per cent, there would be no fundamental reason behind the sale. She served as the initial host on Fox's So You Think You Can Dance, and has been a contributor to TV shows including The View, Larry King Live, Showbiz Tonight, and The Joy Behar Show. Sanchez has two children with Whitesell, a WWE/IMG agent.

President Trump on Thursday wished Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos good luck on his divorce - predicting it will be "a beauty". She reportedly met Bezos through Whitesell. He drafted the company's original business plan on a laptop while driving cross-country in the early 1990s to Seattle with MacKenzie Bezos at the wheel.

Making things more complicated, Washington, where the couple resides, is a community property state, which means that all assets and debts accrued during the marriage are considered owned equally by both spouses unless there was a prenuptial agreement stating otherwise.

No information is available on how the couple are dealing with the financial implication of the divorce.

A source told the magazine that Sanchez and her husband had been officially separated since fall.

"It's unlikely there's any risk to the company", said Stuart Slotnick, chairman of the matrimonial department of law firm Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney in New York City. Without such an agreement MacKenzie, 48, would be entitled to half of the 54-year-old Amazon CEO's estimated net worth of $137 billion.

Even if Bezos were exempted from filing a Form 4, he would be required to update promptly the record of his Amazon holdings on file with the SEC if his position in the company changed by 1 per cent or more, said D.C. securities lawyer Thomas Gorman.
