Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos will retain 75 percent of the Amazon share he and his now ex-wife MacKenzie, as part of the settlement agreement she revealed on Thursday.

Jeff responded with a tweet by himself and thanked MacKenzie for her" support and kindness in this process. "
Speculation had happened over what the potential settlement would be between the 55-year-old Bezos and his former wife, with some suggesting that it could cost the tech titan nearly $ 70 billion.

In a mission in The Daily Beast, de Becker said he and other security experts were investigating how anyone could access Bezo's private answering machine to his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez, after some of them were published on The National Enquirer and became an object. for an extortion plot. American Media Inc., which publishes The National Enquirer, is led by David Pecker, who has long-standing ties to President Donald Trump.
