New details have emerged in the colossal divorce between Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his soon-to-be ex-wife, Mackenzie Bezos, the DailyMail reports.
According to recently obtained court filings, Mackenzie Bezos could get at least $1 billion more than was initially expected in the divorce settlement.
Records also state that the pair continue to live in the same house.
“We were married on September 4, 1993 at Palm Beach Florida,” the divorce petition reads. “We currently live in the same household.”
The couple’s home is an $80 million estate in Mercer Island, Washington, which includes a boat house and guest house, pool and docks on about 10 acres of land.
The financial details of the divorce show that Jeff Bezos would transfer shares worth 4 percent of Amazon’s outstanding common stock to Mackenzie Bezos once the divorce is complete. That may not happen until this summer, as it takes at least 90 days for a divorce case to be completed in Washington State.
Thus, because of Amazon’s rising stock price, Mackenzie Bezos is likely get a larger settlement than first reported. When the divorce was revealed on April 4, Mackenzie was estimated to receive $35.85 billion, but as the stock price has risen, that figure has increased by $1 billion, to $36.87 billion.
The couple did not have a prenuptial agreement, however Mackenzie Bezos will not be receiving spousal support and will have to pay her own attorney fees.
Jeff Bezos’ mistress, Wendy “Lauren” Sanchez, also has filed for divorce from her husband. The Bezos’ announced their split ahead of a National Enquirer story that described the affair earlier this year.
