Jeff Bezos, The World's Wealthiest Groom, Prepares For A Massive Prenup To Protect His $138 Billion In His Second Marriage
The engagement of Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sánchez has provided delight to the pair and set up their attorneys for success. Bezos, the world's richest groom, and Sánchez, a successful businesswoman, will marry.
Bezos and Sánchez got engaged aboard the Koru, a $500 million superyacht. The stunning brunette confidently presented a 20-carat engagement ring worth $2.5 million in Cannes, France.
Bezos, 59, did not have a prenuptial agreement for his first marriage to MacKenzie Scott, which cost him $38 billion, but it is likely that he will protect his multibillion-dollar fortune in his second marriage to Sánchez, 53.
Sánchez, a wealthy entrepreneur, also has to protect her assets. Their upcoming marriage is complicated by their shared property and philanthropy.
The stakes are enormous for this power couple financially. Forbes estimates Bezos's net worth at $138 billion, making him the world's third-richest person after LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault and Tesla Inc. CEO Elon Musk.
Bezos remains one of the world's wealthiest despite Amazon's stock price decrease last year, which reduced his net worth by $57 billion.
Amazon has become a global behemoth since its 1997 founding, dominating multiple industries and growing globally.
The organization serves customers in 40 countries, from India to Brazil and most of Europe. Its impact extends beyond online retail, with projects like Amazon Web Services (AWS) providing infrastructure for major websites and enterprises worldwide.
Amazon purchased MGM's huge entertainment collection for $8.5 billion in 2022, a major move in the entertainment sector. Famous film franchises like James Bond and a large TV episode collection were acquired.
Amazon Prime Video holds exclusive rights to "Thursday Night Football" and drew 15 million viewers for its first game.
