The end: DailyMail.com has obtained a number of divorce filings that were submitted in court by Jeff and Mackenzie Bezos (above in 2018 at the VF Oscar party)
Mackenzie Bezos is already pocketing $1 billion more than was initially reported in her divorce settlement from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
Divorce documents and an SEC filing obtained by DailyMail.com reveal that Mr. Bezos will be transferring shares equal to 4 percent of the company’s outstanding common stock when their split is finalized by the court.
That is not expected to happen however until late June of early July, despite reports claiming earlier this month that the pair had finalized the proceedings.
It takes at least 90 days from the initial filing for a divorce to go through in Washington.
This means that the $35.85 billion settlement Ms. Bezos was reported to be receiving on April 4 was not an accurate sum, with that number drastically increasing over the past two weeks thanks to rising stock prices.
In fact, is the divorce was finalized on Friday afternoon, Ms Bezos would be taking home a settlement package whose stock value alone is worth $36.87 billion.
That means Ms Bezos had managed to turn a $1 billion profit in just two weeks.
There are also an number of other details about the couple’s split contained in the Petition for Divorce, which was filed by Mackenzie on March 28 in King County, Washington.
The most surprising of the admissions is shared early on when Ms Bezos is asked to share information about the marriage.
‘We were married on September 4, 1993 at Palm Breach Florida,’ reads the petition.
‘We currently live in the same household.’
Ms Bezos also confirms that the couple did not have a prenuptial agreement, and that the two parties instead relied on a Separation and Property Settlement Agreement to split their marital assets.
That means that Ms Bezos could have made a case to walk off with more than half of her husband’s wealth, but instead will not be getting an spousal support or even her lawyer’s fees covered by her ex.
Those lawyers meanwhile are not Hollywood heavy hitters like some outlets had been reporting, and instead two local law firms are representing the couple.

Mo money, mo problems”: Reports on the settlement are premature as Mr Bezos will not transfer stocks until the split is final (SEC filign above), and the amount is $1 billion higher then it was April 4
The petition was officially filed on April 4, at which point the couple shared the news that they had finalized their split on social media.
There are still approximately 75 days to go however until a judge signs off on that decree, and in that tie Ms Bezos could potentially make billions – or lose them if the stock takes a plunge.
One day after Bezos announced he had filed for divorce his mistress did as well, though the two have not been seen together since before news of their affair broke.
Mr and Ms Bezios first announced their split to get out in front of a National Enquirer report detailing Mr. Bezos’ affair with that msitress, Wendy ‘Lauren’ Sanchez.
The philandering parties will likely not be seen together anytime soon either, with Mr and Ms Bezos living together under the same roof.
The two will have plenty of room to avoid one another though, as that roof is rather vast.
Their marital home in Mercer Island, Washington is actually a $80 million compound with boat house, guest house, docks, and a pool on close to 10 acres of land.
