MacKenzie Bezos will receive 25 percent of the couple’s stock in Amazon, which will leave her with a total of 4 percent stake of the company. That amounts to about $38 billion in purpose.
Yes, but: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos will have an estimated net worth of $118 billion, so MacKenzie Bezos is still a long way from her husband, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Bezos will keep voting control for the company, too.
Flashback: Back in May, MacKenzie Bezos said she will give away half of her fortune to charity, which I wrote about for the Deseret News. She signed the Giving Pledge, “which encourages the world's richest people to dedicate a majority of their wealth to charitable causes, either during their lifetimes or in their wills,” according to CNN.
