Amazon boss Jeff Bezos and wife MacKenzie divorce

The American tech billionaire and his wife of 25 years announced the news Wednesday three days before his 55th birthday in a tweet signed by both of them. They have four children together.

We want to make people aware of a development in our lives. As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends,” the tweet says.

The couple last year launched a charitable fund together, dubbed the Day One Fund. The statement Wednesday suggests they will continue to work together on that effort.

We’ve had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures,” the tweet says.

MacKenzie Bezos, a 48-year-old novelist, is often cited in the Amazon origin story as having supported her husband’s move off of Wall Street and into e-commerce.

Shares of Amazon dipped slightly immediately following the announcement before paring those losses.
