No Prenup? Jeff Bezos to Divorce Wife, $137 Billion Up For Grabs

This is set to be the most expensive divorce of all time! Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife Mackenzie Tuttle are calling it quits.

Now for the billion dollar question? Was there a prenup? With $137 billion in the balance, we certainly hope so!

Jeff Bezos and Mackenzie Tuttle were married in 1993 and have four children, ranging in age from 13 to 18. They met in 1992 while she was working at hedge fund D.E. Shaw. Just two years later, Jeff founded Amazon as a bookstore and in 1997 reached millionaire status. He has since become the world’s richest man.

A mutual decision, their divorce comes after 25 years of marriage. The couple separated in 2018. Knowing how much of a stir it would cause, Jeff and Mackenzie have released a joint statement:

“We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other. If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again. We’ve had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures. Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends.”

Jeff & Mackenzie

According to TMZ, the former couple resides in Washington, which is a community property state. Under Washington divorce law, assets could be divided 50/50 unless there is a reason that deems a less equitable division. With more than 400,000 acres of land at their disposal, there’s no telling how this high asset divorce will play out.

Harvey Weinstein Allegedly Reaches $44 Million Lawsuit Settlement

on

According to several news outlets, disgraced entertainment mogul Harvey Weinstein has reached a $44 million settlement with several of his accusers and creditors. With $30 million going to survivors of his depravity and $14 million going to legal fees, Weinstein still isn’t out of the water just yet. The former famed producer is set to go to trial for his many criminal charges in New York this September.

Accused of sexual harassment by more than 80 women, Harvey Weinstein is attempting to settle out of court before standing trial. He is currently only facing criminal charges for sexual violence against two women despite the many complaints waged against him. Since sexual harassment is deemed a civil violation, the outcome of this settlement could set a horrific standard for the treatment of victims of sexual misconduct.

The total sum of $44 million is set to be paid by insurance policies. However, that is contingent upon the finalization of the current agreement. The current deal states $30 million would be split between alleged victims, creditors of his former studio, and some former employees. But there will be no vindication for Weinstein in light of the #MeToo movement which has shed light on many injustices within and outside of the entertainment industry.

As Weinstein continues to hold to his “not guilty” plea, onlookers will have to await the beginning of his criminal trial, which is set for September 9th.

Jussie Smollett’s Case File Unsealed, Prosecution Details Public

In a completely unexpected move, a Cook County judge has ordered Jussie Smollett’s case file to be unsealed. The “Empire” actor was facing 16 charges that were all abruptly dropped by prosecution. His attorney then worked to ensure case particulars would never see the light of day under the guise of maintaining Jussie’s privacy. However, Circuit Judge Steven Watkins has stated the media presence of Smollett and his attorneys proclaiming his innocence has made the need for a sealed case file unnecessary. Now, news media outlets are scrambling to uncover the details of Jussie’s hate crime.

What’s Done In The Dark

Thursday, Judge Watkins read from a 10-page ruling, citing the actions of Smollett were “not the actions of a person seeking to maintain his privacy or simply be let alone.” While acknowledging his status as an actor and performer in the public eye, Watkins expressed where he found fault in Jussie’s behavior. Continuing, “it was not necessary for him to address this so publicly and to such an extent,” Watkins ruled the court could not find good cause to keep the case records sealed.

An attorney from Jussie Smollett’s team would not comment on whether they would attempt to appeal Watkins’ decision. But there was little to be gained immediately from the ruling. As news reps wait for the criminal file to be unsealed, they have access to just a 192-page document which primarily contains the media’s objections to the sealing of the file. However, the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office believes more shall be revealed June 3rd.

Mississippi Mayor Offers $10K for Drug Dealers and Gang Members to Leave Town

Clarksdale Mayor Chuck Espy is prepared to pay a high price for “safety”. Offering up his own money to get drug dealers and gang members out of his city, the Mississippi mayor has proposed a relocation fund that he hopes will improve the quality of life for residents.

During a press conference on Monday, Mayor Espy stated he believed those indulging in criminal behavior are just in the wrong environment. He hopes that the funds would provide them a fresh start elsewhere and is targeting “drug dealers, gang members, and any wannabe criminals” within the limits of Clarksdale. With offers beginning at $10,000, Mayor Espy says now is the time if leave if you’re not going to change.

The relocation fund is just one part of a five point plan which focuses on a no tolerance policy, preservation of lives, rehabilitation programs, and intervention. Although it seems to be a final warning to those of the criminal element, Espy and local Reverend John Givins are emphasizing the opportunity for change is still on the table. In addition to the relocation fund, etiquette classes, education, and cognitive behavioral treatment will be made available to desiring citizens.

In a statement released just before the press conference, Espy communicated the success of a “Corrective Action Plan” has influenced this new approach. He plans to “double-down and implement a systemic approach and use proven models that address crime directly.” The model used in 2018 saw their number of homicides drop exponentially. But that success also came with attacking internal issues within the police department head on.

Describing their circumstance as an inherited 15-year problem, Espy, commissioners, and the police chief have had to crack down on internal corruption and offer solutions for improvement. Providing customer service training, anger management training, community policing, officer education, and formal disciplinary action, the City of Clarksdale is following a model for overall reform and not just policing the citizens.

Do you believe that a relocation stipend is a good idea or will it just fund criminal activity elsewhere?
