Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzine decided to part ways and are divorcing after 25 years. The couple said, “After a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends.”
The couple met in New York at D.E. Shaw.
Jeff was the first person to interview MacKenzie for a role at the hedge fund and they ended up having offices next to each other, according to a 2013 interview with Vogue.
They married in 1993 and a year later drove across the country to Seattle, where Jeff founded Amazon. They have four children.
