Jeff Bezos owns 16 per cent of Amazon, which is now the world's biggest internet company by revenue. As the world's richest man, Oxfam said he could fund the health budget of Ethiopia with just 1 per cent of his estimated £87billion fortune. Mr Bezos founded Amazon in 1994, one year after marrying his novelist wife MacKenzie Bezos. They met while working at hedge fund DE Shaw in New York and the couple later moved to Seattle, where Mr Bezos started his business in his garage. However he now faces the most expensive divorce in history after revealing earlier this month that he would be separating from Mrs Bezos after 25 years of marriage. Source
