The world's richest man, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and his wife MacKenzie have agreed a record-breaking divorce settlement of at least $35bn.

世界首富、亚马逊创始人杰夫-贝佐斯和妻子麦肯齐近日达成创纪录的离婚协议,前妻麦肯齐将分得至少350亿美元(约合人民币2351亿元)。

Ms Bezos keeps a 4% stake in the online retail giant, worth $35.6bn on its own.

麦肯齐获得4%的亚马逊股份,价值356亿美元。

Amazon was founded by Jeff Bezos in Seattle in 1994, a year after the couple married, and Ms Bezos was one of its first employees.

1994年,杰夫-贝佐斯在西雅图创建了亚马逊,当时他已经与麦肯齐结婚一年。在企业创立之初,麦肯齐也曾是亚马逊的一名员工。

Both parties tweeted positive comments about the other in the wake of the announced settlement.

在宣布离婚协议之后,双方在推特上互致感谢和祝福。

The two did not provide any further financial details about the settlement.

双方都没有透露离婚协议的更多财务细节。

The Amazon shares alone will make Ms Bezos the world's third-richest woman while Jeff will remain the world's richest person, according to Forbes.

根据《福布斯》的排名,仅亚马逊股份一项财产就使麦肯齐成为全球第三大女富豪,而贝佐斯仍是世界首富。

Jeff Bezos, 55, and MacKenzie, 48, a novelist, married in 1993 and have four children.

55岁的杰夫-贝佐斯和48岁的小说家麦肯齐在1993年结婚,两人有四名子女。

Ms Bezos' tweet is her first and only one since joining the microblogging website this month. In it she stated that she was "grateful to have finished the process of dissolving my marriage to Jeff with support from each other".

这是麦肯齐在上月开通推特账户后的第一条也是唯一一条推文。她写道:“在彼此的支持下,我与贝佐斯解除了婚姻关系,我很感激。”

Mr Bezos tweeted: "I'm so grateful to all my friends and family for reaching out with encouragement and love... MacKenzie most of all."

贝佐斯发推特说:“非常感谢所有的亲友给我的鼓励和爱,尤其要感谢麦肯齐。”

The tweet concluded with: "She is resourceful and brilliant and loving, and as our futures unroll, I know I'll always be learning from her."

推文末尾说:“她非常机智、才华横溢、充满爱心,随着我们人生中下一个阶段的到来,我知道我将永远向她学习。”

Prior to the settlement, Mr Bezos held a 16.3% stake in Amazon. He will retain 75% of that holding but Ms Bezos has transferred all of her voting rights to her former husband.

在离婚协议达成前,贝佐斯持有16.3%的亚马逊股份。他将继续持有这部分股份的75%,但麦肯齐将所有的投票权让给了贝佐斯。

She will also give up her interests in the Washington Post newspaper and Mr Bezos' space travel firm Blue Origin.

麦肯齐还将放弃《华盛顿邮报》和贝佐斯的天空旅行公司“蓝色起源”的所有权益。

Amazon is now vast online retail business. Last year, it generated sales of $232.8bn and it has helped Mr Bezos and his family amass a fortune of $131bn, according to Forbes magazine.

据《福布斯》杂志报道,大型电商亚马逊去年销售额达到2328亿美元,帮助贝佐斯和家人积累了1310亿美元的财富。
