      It's not clear if they're giving the settlement amount or the man's net worth at the time.

        He'll keep the parts of the empire that print money.

        She'll get the rest, the $2 billion charity, the plane, the yacht, the mansion, etc etc.

        Is there some lawsuit against Bezos I haven't heard about? Because rich guys like to get divorced right before a big lawsuit, they transfer their wealth to their ex-wives.

        She'll probably end up with %25 of his net.

        Why not %50 you ask, well the value of his net worth is dependent on him being in control of it, in other words his assets are worth $137 billion in HIS hands. In your or my hands those assets are worth alot less.

        If I was her divorce lawyer, I would ask for a bit less up front, in return for lifetime support payments.

        Cuz this guy is gonna continue printing money, I'd rather have %1 of his take every year than a huge lump sum.

        So I'm calling it right now, she'll probably get something like $17 bn up front and lifetime support which will probably add up to another $21 bn.

        Wow.

        Must be nice being a woman eh.

        Course most em don't get to marry a whale.

        But still. It sounds like a charmed life.

          I hope at least he have all his assets protected in offshore corporations and stuff like that...

          If not... then He is so screwed...

          I give it 2 weeks before she starts claiming that he beat her up and also molested the kids. Just because that way she can get 80% or more.

            In "unrelated" news, Amazon Prime memberships will go from $119/yr to $250/yr.
