BREAKING: Jeff Bezos’ ex-wife MacKenzie becomes the world’s richest woman

Jeff Bezos’ ex-wife MacKenzie Scott has become the world’s richest woman after Amazon shares surged amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Scott, who owns a 4 percent stake in the ecommerce giant, has added another $30.3 billion to her bank balance in the last year, taking her net worth to a staggering $67.4 billion, according to Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

The boost comes after Amazon stocks skyrocketed off the back of the pandemic, as stay-at-home orders and shuttered businesses sent consumers flocking to the retail giant for online orders and home deliveries.

Shares have risen from nearly $2,000 to $3,500 since the start of 2020 alone.
