Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is slated to get a divorce from MacKenzie Bezos, his wife of 25 years, the pair announced. "Through the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends". "If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again".

The divorce settlement could prove to be the biggest of all time.

And there may never have been more money than in this case.

In 2013 the billionaire announced that he had bought the Washington Post newspaper.

The Amazon boss confirmed the split on his Twitter account. Amazon, initially an online bookstore, was launched in July 1994 in the couple's garage.

His home in Washington, D.C., is the largest in the district. The couple also has four children, so it's possible some of the Bezos fortune will be diverted into funds for them before Jeff and MacKenzie take their share.

Amazon's stock edged up $2.84 Wednesday to close at $1,659.42. According to Wired, she handled some of the firm's first freight contracts while working at a Barnes & Noble bookstore - a company which would eventually face intense and overpowering competition from Amazon itself. Amazon did not immediately return requests for comment about the status of the Bezos ownership stake or what impact the divorce might have on the company.
