How did the Bezons power couple ended in divorce?

The divorce of Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie Bezos shocked many followers of Amazon's CEO. Speculation that Jeff was having an affair with the former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez, was released by the National Enquirer.

However, Vox reported that the CEO was already separated from his ex-wife before he and Sanchez started dating.

"He and Mackenzie have been working on this for a long time, and they worked very hard to fix it," said the source of Vox, who wanted to be anonymous.

"Then they became separated, and then Jeff started dating Lauren," the source further explained.

The divorce may create major impacts on Amazon since MacKenzie could have been entitled to half of Jeff's assets, stated under the law in Washington state. If this happens, the Amazon CEO would have to sell some of his stock, which will reduce his company's control.
