Divorce makes Bezos' ex-wife world's 3rd richest woman

Jeff Bezos’ wife, MacKenzie, world’s 3rd richest woman after divorce settlement

Ahead of her is Francoise Bettencourt Meyers, the L'Oreal SA heiress worth $54 billion, Alice Walton, the Walmart Inc. heiress worth $44 billion, and Jacqueline Badger Mars, the Mars heiress worth $37 billion. In a tweet announcing the divorce settlement, the latter revealed that Jeff would keep 75 percent of their Amazon stock and all of their ownership of The Washington Post and the Blue Origin Space company.

Looks like Amazon's [NASDAQ:AMZN] CEO Jeff Bezos will hold on to that "richest person in the world" title.

This report is surely interesting, considering the fact that Jeff and MacKenzie just announced that they had finalized their divorce.
