Will Jeff Bezos' divorce impact Blue Origin $1B funding pledge?

Lauren Sanchez Jeff Bezos and Mackenzie Bezos

The National Enquirer publication which is found in its latest issue released today, said that its team tracked Jeff and Lauren across five states and 40,000 miles, tailed them in private jets, swanky limos, helicopter rides, romantic hikes, five-star hotel hideaways, intimate dinner dates and "quality time" in hidden love nests.

In April he texted her: "I love you, alive girl".

President Trump on Thursday wished Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos good luck on his divorce - predicting it will be "a beauty". "I will show you with my body, and my lips and my eyes, very soon", the tabloid reports. While Washington state divorce law considers all that the couple builds and accrues during their marriage as community property, that doesn't necessarily mean a 50-50 split of assets - including six homes, according to Business Insider - but the court attempts to split assets (and debts), fair and equitably.

The twice-divorced commander-in-chief is a frequent critic of Bezos, who also owns the Washington Post - accusing his paper of being Amazon's "chief lobbyist" and claiming his online emporium is ripping off the US Postal Service.

But the New York Post, citing legal experts and insiders, Bezos' wife will likely want to keep the family fortune essentially intact. The couple originally met as colleagues at NY hedge fund D.E. Shaw.

"We want to make people aware of a development in our lives", Bezos tweeted. "As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have made a decision to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends", read the statement signed by both of them".

Rami Malek thanks ‘beautiful man’ Freddie Mercury in Golden Globes speech
The Netflix show's star Michael Douglas won best actor in a TV series (musical or comedy) for playing an ageing acting coach. Rami Malek took home his own Golden Globe this year for this role as Freddie Mercury in " Bohemian Rhapsody ".

Bacarella, however, said he is not concerned because even if MacKenzie Bezos liquidated a stake that could be as high as eight per cent, there would be no fundamental reason behind the sale.

Reports revealed Whitesell and Sanchez, who have two children, had been officially separated since fall.

"We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other", the statement continued.

The couple will also have to split assets, including the 400,000 acres of property they own. Bezos added that "if we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again".

Sources close to Jeff however told TMZ that the relationship with Lauren began after Jeff and Mackenzie's separation.

However, they say they have evidence of the affair staring several months before their investigation began.
