The world’s richest man, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and his wife MacKenzie have agreed a record-breaking divorce settlement of at least $35bn.

全世界最富有的男人,亞馬遜創辦人傑夫.貝佐斯與妻子瑪肯西,已同意一項價值至少350億美元的創紀錄離婚協議。

Amazon confirmed on Thursday that MacKenzie is expected to hold 4% of the company’s common stock pending a court approval of their divorce decree. Based on Amazon’s current market value, that amount would be worth roughly $35 billion.

亞馬遜週四證實,一旦法院裁定他們離婚,瑪肯西可望持有該公司4%的普通股。根據亞馬遜當前市值,瑪肯西持股價值約350億美元。

Bezos’current net worth is estimated at $114 billion, which is down from $150 billion as a result of the divorce settlement. According to Forbes magazine, the settlement makes MacKenzie the third wealthiest woman in the world.

由於這項離婚協議,貝佐斯當前身價估計將從原本的1500億美元,降至1140億美元。根據「富比世」雜誌,這項協議使瑪肯西成為全球第三富有的女人。

The couple announced they were splitting up in January, ending a 25-year marriage. The separation turned into a media firestorm after the National Enquirer claimed to have evidence that Bezos had been having an affair with a former news anchor, Lauren Sanchez.

這對夫妻是在今年1月宣布他們將要離婚,結束這段25年的婚姻。在「國家詢問報」宣稱掌握證據,貝佐斯與前新聞主播蘿倫.桑琪絲有婚外情後,這起離異新聞成為媒體爭相報導的焦點。
