Amazon's Jeff Bezos has no prenup, $67B on the line

Meet Lauren Sanchez the lady behind Jeff Bezos expensive divorce lailasnews

They say they followed Bezos and Sanches "across five states and 40,000 miles, 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 tech tycoon and his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie, announced the end of their marriage in a tweet Wednesday - right before Page Six revealed that Bezos is now dating Sanchez, the wife of Hollywood talent mogul Patrick Whitesell.

The joint statement concluded: "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". He and his wife described each other as "cherished friends" and gave the impression it was amicable.

Today, TMZ report that the couple did not have a pre-nuptial agreement and a significant chunk of Bezo's fortune could be on the line.

Bezos issued a statement on their separation, saying that "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".

President Donald Trump wished Amazon founder Jeff Bezos luck in his divorce from his wife MacKenzie, predicting the proceedings will be "a beauty".

Bezos' lawyer told the Enquirer it was "widely known" that Bezos and MacKenzie were "long separated". It's important to note that there was reportedly no prenuptial agreement.

In addition to the stock of Amazon, which recently surpassed Microsoft to become the world's most valuable company (a distinction Apple previously held), the couple also own a vast real estate empire, totaling some 400,000 acres.
