Billionaire Jeff Bezos, founder and chief executive of Amazon.com, and wife MacKenzie Bezos, are divorcing after 25 years of marriage, the couple said in a joint statement on Twitter on Wednesday (January 9).

Jeff Bezos, 54, is the world’s richest person, with a fortune that has soared to more than $160 billion (USD) thanks to his stake in Amazon, which again became Wall Street’s most valuable company this week, surpassing Microsoft Inc.

The couple decided to divorce after a long period of “loving exploration” and trial separation, and expect to continue as partners in joint ventures and projects, according to the statement.
