1. Jeff Bezos & MacKenzie Bezos: $35 Billion
It should come as no surprise that the person who tops our list of giving out the most expensive divorce settlement is also among the richest in the world: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. He announced to the world in January 2019 that he and his wife his splitting after 25 years of marriage. As part of the settlement, Business Insider reported that author MacKenzie Bezos granted the Amazon mogul “all of her interests in the Washington Post and Blue Origin,” as well as voting rights in her share of the company. Jeff got 75% of the Amazon stocks they co-owned together. This left Mackenzie with 20 million shares in Amazon which is worth $35 billion. It is this reason she ranks as the third richest woman in the world.
