Amazon boss Jeff Bezos finalises divorce

"Happy to be giving him all my interests in the Washington Post and Blue Origin, and 75% of our Amazon stock plus voting control of my shares to support his continued contributions with the teams of these incredible companies".

Jeff will retain all interest in the Washington Post and space company Blue Origin, as well as 75 percent of shared stock in Amazon.

Based on Thursday's share price, MacKenzie Bezos's stake in Amazon alone is worth $36 billion US.

MacKenzie Bezos, a novelist, said in a tweet Thursday that she was "excited" about her future plans, but didn't say what they were.

But their settlement means Mr Bezos will retain company control of Amazon.

Following the terms being disclosed, Bezos, who remains Amazon's chief executive and largest shareholder, took to Twitter to express his feelings on the end of this chapter.

Also, the H1 chip means that the Powerbeats Pro headphones can be controlled with "Hey Siri" commands. Unfortunately, the Powerbeats Pro are not yet available to purchase, but they are "coming soon".

She also said she was "looking forward" to the next phase of their relationship "as co-parents and friends".

"Those shares are worth more than $35 billion as of 1:30 p.m. She is resourceful and brilliant".

The couple first announced the end of their 25-year marriage in January, shining a spotlight on MacKenzie Bezos, who had stayed out of the limelight, amid speculation about the fate of the couple's combined fortune. The Amazon shares will make her the world's third-richest woman while Jeff Bezos will remain the world's richest person, according to Forbes.

But the following month, Mr Bezos claimed he was blackmailed by a USA tabloid over "intimate" photos of him.

"Rather than capitulate to extortion and blackmail, I've made a decision to publish exactly what they sent me, despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten", Bezos wrote in a blog post. AMI did not respond to requests for comment.

The U.S. tabloid then published alleged photos and intimate text messages between Bezos and his new partner, former television news anchor Lauren Sanchez. They married just six months after they began dating, Jeff Bezos has said.
