Today it was announced that Jeff Bezos the founder Amazon will retain control of his Amazon stock following his divorce. His now ex-wife Mackenzie Bezos has agreed to take 4% stake in Amazon but let Jeff Bezos control the voting of that stock. She also agreed to give up her stake in Blue Origin and the Washington Post as part of the divorce.

“MacKenzie most of all. I’m grateful for her support and for her kindness in this process and am very much looking forward to our new relationship as friends and co-parents,” Bezos said in a tweet.

That 4% stake may sound small but it makes her the 4th richest women in the world with a net worth of $37 billion.

Many had worried about what this divorce would mean for the future of Amazon. Now we know that Amazon’s leadership will remain unchanged and with that help Amazon, the Washington Post, and Blue Origin move on from what has been a looming question for some time now.
