Jeff Bezos and his soon-to-be ex-wife MacKenzie announced their divorce on Twitter, so it seems fitting that they use the platform to keep us abreast of the proceedings. The duo posted coordinated messages addressing the situation earlier today, with MacKenzie outlining details of the deal.
Mackenzie — who joined Twitter this month, and so far only has one post — is giving up her stake in the Washington Post and Blue Origin, as well as 75 percent of her stock in Amazon. Additionally, she is giving up voting control of her shares.

Meanwhile, Jeff decided to retweet her post and then added some nice words about MacKenzie.

WWD reports that a form 8-K was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission this morning, mentioning the divorce. It outlines that “shares representing approximately 4.0 percent of the company’s outstanding common stock will be registered in MacKenzie T. Bezos’ name as separate property” once the divorce goes through, which should be in about 90 days.
