MacKenzie Bezos announced on Twitter Thursday that she and ex-husband Jeff Bezos have completed the process of dissolving their marriage, leaving her with $35.6 billion in Amazon stock.

MacKenzie said she was “happy” to be giving Jeff 75 percent of their stock in Amazon along with voting control of her shares. She also left Jeff with all of her interests in the Washington Post and Blue Origin, Jeff Bezos’ aerospace company, according to the statement.

According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, MacKenzie will retain shares representing about 4 percent of Amazon’s outstanding common stock, making her the third-biggest shareholder at the company, behind Jeff and Vanguard. Jeff remains the richest man in the world, even after losing $35.6 billion in Amazon stock.

Amazon’s stock was down about half a percent Thursday afternoon following the news.
