That is about $500,000,000 for everything they had sex.
No prenup? really?
"Shoulda got that insured, Geico for your money
If you ain't no punk
Holla, "We want prenup! We want prenup!" (Yeah!)
It's somethin' that you need to have
‘Cause when she leave yo' ass, she gon' leave with half"
I mean even Kayne knows this.
Prenups can be and are ignored by judges.
Also they were married long before Amazon was started
Then he should have had a postnuptial agreement.
New tax laws for 2019 also mean that ole Jeffrey doesn't get the tax deduction of alimony payments .. but on the other side.. the alimony is non-taxable ...
Wife of 25 years
Company was started 24 years ago
A prenup wouldn't have done anything since this was created after their marriage as a result she's entitled to half.
68 billion is rub out territory for certain.
just like my account.. twice a month, i get to watch the numbers bounce up.. then a couple days later fall back down after bills clear
though, sadly, with a whole lot less places before the decimal point
So kind of like videogames right? And we all know the lengths people go to win in a videogame. (cheating, lying, hacking, PAYING)
lol, we can make a withdrawal and only the wife would care. We can get our net worth in cash after ordering the bills from the bank (depends on how much you have).
People like Bezos will never see their total worth in cash. Just numbers on a screen.
That's the only thing I think about. As I go up the business ladder, I will be presented with an opportunity to make more money,
by doing the wrong thing to a long time business partner. It's hard to get that rich in business without stepping on a few toes.
I just hope I'm satisfied where I am before that happens.
Best move Jeff made in his life. The money doesn't matter. About the investors nobody cares about freeloaders.
I am usually on the men's side when it comes to divorce but not in this case. She fully supported this little beta and encouraged his "dream" to sell books online. She is pretty damn smart herself, and apparently helped quite a bit to get "Amazon" started at the beginning. Guy becomes famous, starts juicing and falls for the first bit of strange he has probably ever had. She needs to bend him over in court. If he is smart he never marries again, but he will probably be married within the year.
They aren't talking about his wife, they are talking about his mistress Lauren Sanchez.
Let's hope those pictures of Bezo's he sent to his mistress never see the light of day.
Even if she only got 0.1% of his wealth, that is still $130 MILLION. Let that sink in...
Ol' Jeffrey did let it sink in. That's what got him into this mess in the first place.
Please God no.
Welcome to being married. Don't like it, don't get married (or live with a partner in the same home for 7+ years or get an ironclad prenup before marrying. She deserves half and I doubt he's contesting that.
Now she can hang out with Paul Allen's sister, and they can talk about all the hard work and sacrifice they put in to earning their billions.
Yep, prepping the prenup as I type this .
That's some serious pussy-tax
Don't worry there stored on a super secure amazon bucket.
Nah, if he ever remarries without a prenup then he's a stone cold rock hard fucktard.
Wife #1 was there from the start, she is entitled to half by law. I doubt the Amazon biz model will skip a beat.
Unless someone's breaks accidentally fail in a freak car accident. Either one of them. They both have equal billions to hire countless assassins. Hey that sounds like a decent screenplay, I should write that up.
Bill Burr has a fantastic skit on this topic.
It's all funny but starts to get relevant around 2 mins
This is only partly true. He doesn't think it will actually fail, he thinks it will have a massive drop as more competitors enter the market and the fad starts going away. Same with AWS. His strategy is to get in early, move fast, get what capital he can and move on.
To say that Bezos and Gates don't care about making more money is also incorrect. Gates still looks to find ways to make more money as Bezos does. Gates made another $4 Billion this past year. "B"illion.
Well it is a good thing that Amazon makes a good chunk of their profit from AWS then...
And btw, Amazon is still making progressive profits year over year.
Both their online sales and their online cloud infrastructure control the large majority of their markets.
Not sure where you get the diminishing from...
What I mean is, Gates doesn't have a desire to be worth 300B. He stepped down to do other things than become substantially richer.
Earning money from being on the board and stock prices going up isn't the same. I would say he's happier now. Jeff looks like he's taking the same route, albeit with his mistress.
He'll take the fall, but how do you know she didn't dead-bedroom him first.
It will be really weird if Amazon does a face plant after Wife #1 leaves and we find out she was really the brains of the operation.
Anybody got her number?
True, I would say that neither cares about being worth more than they are now, but they both care very much about making more money. It is what they do with it now that has changed. Also for perspective Bill Gates isn't making all that money off of MS Stocks, he actually owns very little MS stock now, he makes most of his money off of other investments and real estate, like most of the wealthy tend to do.
Interesting thoughts. I know almost nothing about her, one wonders what kind of role or influence she had.
69 billion, that's a number, LOL. And Colbert beat you to it, scroll up a little I posted his "indecent proposal".
I will never understand why divorce in most places means that assets are split evenly. I dont get it.
Usually some leftist nonsense about the woman having "empowered" the man to make all that money.
Yet plenty of single successful people out there without a spouse so called "empowering" them.
Thank god the default system here is diferent.
Who needs a law binding contract to empty your bank account? Common law will do the same thing nowadays even without marriage. So, unless you want kids - it's best to have your own place.
Just a minor nitpick - it's not always gendered as you say. It's actually just the primary earner, whomever that is, gets the shaft. Where I live, the non-earner is entitled to 'maintain their standard of living'. Of course, that usually means the earner no longer will be since most people weren't making enough to support two full copies of their lifestyle.
Yes, I think the assumption is that both parties were contributing to the legal partnership (marriage). That's often a poor assumption in divorces, as a leading cause of divorce is someone being a deadbeat. Right up there with coke and hookers.
Does that involve being on True Crimes Daily?
Why would she sign it?
POST Nuptial is COLLECTING money. Maybe you meant PRE-Nuptial?
