Amazon CEO’s ex-wife becomes world’s richest woman


Mackenzie Scott, ex wife of Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos has become the world’s richest woman, according to Bloomberg’s billionaires index.

The index said Scott achieved the feat with a net-worth of $68 billion.

She has overtaken Françoise Bettencourt Meyers, an heiress to L’Oreal who controls 33% of the world’s largest cosmetics maker and counts a net-worth of $66.8 billion.

This also makes her the 12th richest person in the world in a list that features Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk in the top four.

It also comes days after her former husband became the first man in the world to hit $200 billion net-worth.

The jump in her net-worth follows Amazon’s record stock growth amid the coronavirus pandemic which marked a plus in the value of her 4 percent ownership stake in the company.
