The former wife of Jeff Bezos, the richest man on Earth, is recognized as the richest woman in the United States. The state of Mackenzie Bezos is estimated at $ 62.3 billion, writes Forbes.
Over the week, Ms. Bezos’s fortune grew by $ 5.7 billion. This was due to the fact that from July 2 to July 9, Amazon shares rose 10%. As a result, Bezos became richer than Alice Walton, the daughter of Walmart, the founder of the supermarket chain, and took first place in the United States.
In the world, the richest woman is the granddaughter of the founder of L’Oreal, Francoise Betancourt-Mayer, whose fortune is estimated at $ 64 billion. So if Mackenzie Bezos’s fortune increases by another $ 2 billion, then, according to Forbes, she will bypass the Frenchwoman and become the richest woman on earth.
As EADaily reported, Jeff and Mackenzie Bezos divorced a year ago after 25 years of marriage. As a result, Mackenzie got 19.7 million shares (4%) of Amazon, which at that time were valued at $ 38.3 billion.
Bezos and after the divorce remains the richest man on the planet, and Amazon is the most expensive brand in the world.
