Amazon’s Jeff Bezos announces he and wife MacKenzie are getting a divorce

Jeff Bezos, billionaire and founder/CEO of Amazon, is about to be a bachelor.

On Wednesday morning, Bezos announced he and his wife MacKenzie are getting a divorce via a joint statement shared on Twitter.

"We want to make people aware of a development in our lives," the statement began. "As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends."

The pair, who married in 1993, have four children together. Well, five if you count Amazon. And last year they launched the Day One Fund, a charity to help homeless families and create preschools.

Though Jeff and MacKenzie are splitting up, they assured everyone they remain on good terms and have no bad blood between them.

"We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other. If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again," they wrote.

"We’ve had such a great life together as a married couple and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures. Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends."
