  • Jeff and Mac Kenzie Bezos attend an event

He is now worth an estimated $137bn and this week Amazon overtook Microsoft as the world's most valuable listed company.

Jeff Bezos and wife MacKenzie Bezos have been together for 25 years. MacKenzie Bezos was aware that her husband was dating Sanchez during their separation, according to a person close to Jeff Bezos, who asked not to be named discussing personal matters.

Bezos and MacKenzie announced in a statement on the billionaire's Twitter that they had made a decision to continue their "shared lives as friends".

"During a blockbuster four-month investigation, The ENQUIRER tracked Bezos, who turns 55 on January 12, and secret lover Sanchez across five states and 64,000, tailed them in private jets, swanky limos, helicopter rides, romantic hikes, five-star hotel hideaways, intimate dinner dates and "quality time" in hidden love nests", the National Enquirer wrote in a story teasing its upcoming investigation.

Amazon shares were up 0.2 per cent in midday trading on Wednesday.

Divorce attorney experts told CNBC that MacKenzie would most likely not want to impact her ex's ownership stake because it would ultimately affect the growth of the Bezos family fortune. Today, Bezos owns 16 percent of the company, or 80 million shares, worth about $129 billion at Amazon's current valuation. Earlier this week the company snagged the most valuable us company title with a market value, as of Wednesday, at $800 billion.

Rumor: Peter King says Antonio Brown doesn’t want Steelers to trade him
During the week of New Year's, e multiple rumors circulated the team regarding why Brown sat out the last game of the season. Antonio Brown may not have asked to be traded by the Steelers, but Pittsburgh is certainly entertaining the option.

"If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again", the couple said. They got engaged within three months and were married after six.

According to Bloomberg, an even split of the Amazon founder's U.S. $137bn stash would make MacKenzie Bezos the richest woman in the world, walking away with nearly $69bn.

Last January, the couple donated $33 million to fund college scholarships for US high schoolers with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status, an Obama-era program protecting young immigrants brought to the United States illegally by their parents. "The two of them are sort of thick as thieves right now".

"My office was next door to his, and all day long I listened to that fabulous laugh", she told the publication.

Bezos founded Amazon in 1994, one year after he married MacKenzie. Likewise, Google co-founder Sergey Brin's stake remained unchanged after he and Anne Wojcicki divorced without fanfare in 2015.
