Jeff Bezos' ex-wife, Mackenzie Scott, becomes richest woman in the world

Ex- wife of Jeff Bezos, Mackenzie Scott, has been named the riches woman in the world, after hitting a total net worth of $67.4 billion.

According to Bloomberg, the achievement is a result of the continuous spike in Amazon share prices, due to the coronavirus pandemic, with one selling at $3,000 at the moment, as against the previous $2000.

Mackenzie was given a 4% stake in Amazon shares, as part of settlement, after ending her 25- year marriage to Bezos, following allegations he cheated with ex- news anchor, Lauren Sanchez.

She now surpasses french author, Francoise Bettencourt Meyers, who used to be number one with a net worth of $66.6 billion.
