The Bezos Children | Net Worth: $200 Billion
It goes without saying that Jeff Bezos stands out among the new generation of wealthy Americans. Bezos is known as the founder and CEO of the tech company Amazon, with various investments and ventures in logistics, e-commerce, and cloud computing. He is currently the world’s richest person, having a net worth of nearly $200 billion as of 2021. He started to gain significant wealth beginning in 2014. His four children stand to inherit much of their father’s wealth. Bezos was once married to MacKenzie Scott but legally separated in 2019. Bezos gave a quarter of his fortunes to Scott, now worth $59 billion as part of their settlement. Furthermore, both have 50/50 custody of their children.
While we don’t know much about them, what is certain is that Bezos has three sons and an adopted daughter. Only one child is known to the public: the eldest son Preston. Preston seems to follow his father’s footsteps by going to his father’s alma mater, Princeton University.
