Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and the world's richest man, will have to pay 38,000 million dollars to settle divorce with his wife of almost 26 years, MacKenzie Bezos.
He expects a judge to point out this week's most expensive divorce solution in the world, confirming an agreement that he will see Mrs. Bezos, who will have a 4% stake in the online shopping giant.
The couple, who has four children, got married in 1993, before Mr. Bezos established Amazon from his garage in Seattle.
Mrs. Bezos, 49, who will become the fourth wealthiest woman in the world, promised to give at least half of the settlement to charity.
He announced his intention to make a massive donation on a blog on a website created by The Giving Pledge, an organization founded by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, who encourages superpersonals to devote more than half of their wealth to philanthropic causes .
MacKenzie will be incredible, thoughtful and effective in philanthropy and I am proud of it. Your letter is so beautiful. Go to receive MacKenzie. https://t.co/S2gLLBQyRQ

Mrs. Bezos, author, wrote: "I have a disproportionate amount of money to share.
"My focus on philanthropy will continue to be reflective. It will take time and effort and care. But I will not wait. And I will follow it until the safe is empty."
His generosity was acclaimed by Mr. Bezos on Twitter who expressed his pride for the gesture of his next wife.
