The world’s richest man, Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos, and his wife MacKenzie Bezos are to divorce after a 25-year marriage.

The couple announced their split in a joint statement on Wednesday on Twitter.

In a statement, the couple wrote: After a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends.

Bezos has an estimated fortune of more than $160 billion thanks to his stake in online retailer Amazon.

Ms Bezos and her husband first met when she was a student at Princeton University.

She now works as a novelist and the author of two published books.

The couple have four children.
