hasn't it been known for a while that hes been fucking everyone on his payroll?
Really? Man, Bezos must be really organized about his adultery to have that much sex. LIke you'd need an assistant to just keep track of it all.

Where does he it say that he cheated?
They were married before Amazon and he's the richest man in the world. If you believe his wife is the only person, place, or thing he put his wenis in then I've got a bridge to sell you.
Lol. Some of you are just a riot.
I, as well as millions of New Yorkers were forced to fork over at least $600 for his new base. I think that's a big enough entrance fee to laugh at his expense.

Any proof for these allegations? No? That’s what I figured...

People saying she shouldn’t get half lol.

She gave up all her career for him as she’s a book writer but she gave that up to look after the kids, whilst he was busy with Amazon.

Just came to say that he is worth $137 billions now so start recalculating your numbers lol

Also, there must be richer people out there that no one can even approximate.

He's already on record that she was a cornerstone to Amazon's success. She did the accounting for the entire first year Amazon was started by Jeff/them.

That most people in this thread is banging on about getting half is kinda...fucked up?

Not all women/men are money hungry during divorce and chasing half the other person's wealth.

Doesn't seem to be a lot of drama going on. That said, she'll most likely not get half. His army of lawyers are gonna dig up anything to make him pay as little as possible.

I agree. Seems super shallow to care about getting half when you consider how much he's worth. Even 5% of his wealth is past 'fuck you' money. Past a certain point money is meaningless... I would think she just wants a fair amount and to move on without much drama, seems evident from the statement they put out too.

Y'all are crazy if you think he didn't have a prenup before this.

Prenups are not only for rich people marrying each other. Prenups are great ideas for anyone getting married.



My husband and I agreed on a prenup, even though we're both poor, because it's a financially sound decision in the (unlikely) case of divorce. No one thinks straight during divorces. Prenups are to protect yourself and protect your partner.

More than prenups, there's also lots of estate planning involved. You don't just get half of all the trusts when you split. Many assets will be untouchable.
You know prenups aren't immutable and in a lot of cases are highly contestable. In this situation length of time, four children and the rise of a business are all considerations and after marriage changes.

In most instances just adding children can fuck up a prenup.

So the National Enquirer is claiming the reason Bezos dropped the surprise divorce announcement is because they have pictures which are dropping in an article tomorrow.


Obviously take with a grain of salt (not linking to the promo article itself), but there are a few tidbits which may make tomorrow interesting.

It’s weird that people even care to speculate on what she should or shouldn’t get when we know zero about their relationship.
While I admit it's not mathematically impossible that she's a worse person than him, I think it's astronomically unlikely. So yeah, I think she should get all of his money.

I would actually prefer half-half to her getting everything, if only because on a macro scale, less wealth consolidation is more desirable than merely transferring fortunes between individuals.

Plus it would potentially destabilize Amazon's business practices somewhat.

See post #321 and #322. I should have bet you 9 Whopper juniors that he cheated, which had a higher chance of happening than the sun being in the sky tomorrow at noon.

If the wife is innocent in all this then she absolutely deserves money, especially if she is a stay at home wife/mom. Not sure what amount but certainly deserves it.

Obscenely wealthy man lacking moral fibre cheats on wife of 25 years you say? Quelle Surprise... Hope she gets 90% of his shit, gives away 87% of it and lives a full complete and still obscenely wealthy life.

Jesus Christ. You can all call me a shallow asshole, but I can’t believe the richest man in the world chose to have an affair with the woman pictured below.

He’s worth $137 billion! He can have your pick of any single woman in the world.

And he chooses a 49-year old married mother of three? And she has a terrible face lift and ugly lip fillers.

His wife must feel incredibly insulted.

Gotta be a very weird person to love someone like Bezos. Or you just love such a volume of money you can look at it like it's molecules.
