Amazon’s CEO Took To Twitter To Announce His Divorce
After 25 years of marriage, Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos took to Twitter to announce his divorce from wife MacKenzie. 54-year-old Jeff Bezos shared that the two went through a trial separation before making their decision permanent.
Surprisingly enough, Jeff considers their marriage a success, saying in his statement about their personal choice, “If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again.”

The two met in New York, where Jeff was working as a VP of a hedge fund. MacKenzie and Jeff got married just 6 months after meeting each other, and then went on to quit their jobs on Wall Street to move to Seattle. There, Jeff started what would later be known as Amazon: an online bookstore he ran out of his garage.

Jeff is currently the wealthiest man in the world, and nobody is sure if there is a prenup in place, given he only became a millionaire back in 1997, well after he married MacKenzie. Additionally, they reside in the state of Washington, which is a community property state.
This means that any wealth created during their marriage could very well have to be split 50/50 between them. If that happens, MacKenzie will get $69 billion dollars, leaving her the wealthiest woman in the world.
The two have four children together, ranging in ages from 18 to 13 years old.
Here’s How Much The CEO Of Apple Makes
Ever wonder how much the CEO of Apple makes? Well, Tim Cook pulled in $15.6 million dollars last year, as per a Tuesday Securities and Exchange Commission filing. That means he’s paid about 238 times more than what other Apple employees make on average.
His salary is only $3 million dollars, though. Where did he make the rest of it from? The rest of the $12 million came from cash incentives based upon the company reaching certain goals.
This CEO Posted The Most Absurd Job
One completely out of touch 28-year-old CEO recently took to the site Seek to post a job. It’s for a part-time personal assistant, and prepare yourself for how crazy this is.
“This will be the most challenging and the most rewarding position you’ve ever had,” the job description starts out. Ok. Not too bad.
It goes on to say this is an “opportunity to look inside the mind of a successful, fast-paced, intense, sometimes chaotic, passionate, easygoing, adventurous 28-year-old entrepreneur.”
“If you want to clock in and clock out of your job — this isn’t for you,” it goes on to read.
“Expect after-hours and weekend calls from time to time. Life doesn’t stop when the work day does — high performers work until their tasks are done, NOT just until the clock runs out.”
The CEO goes on to say anyone interested in the position needs to be able to keep up with his “activities and type A personality”, which he does say “isn’t for everyone.” He also goes on to say you have to put up with “profanity” and not “take things personally: it’s NEVER about you!”
“Success here will not happen simply by doing what you’re told,” the description continues. You will also be held personally liable for “making the CEO look good, feel good and perform at a higher level.”
“You will need to know the desired outcomes, prioritise your time and projects — and make your own decisions as to how to best accomplish our goals.”
“From the inner workings of business operations, high-level social soirees, business negotiations, property management and business travel — to handling and owning the challenging moments and tasks that a successful business and bizarre, interesting personal life is built on, you’ll get to experience it all first-hand. With a close relationship, you’ll learn his personality and voice and ultimately manage the majority of his day to day activities, scheduling, correspondence, project management, research and errands — among other activities.”
