Online retailer CEO Jeff Bezos’ marriage to MacKenzie Bezos is officially over.

A Seattle-area judge finalized the couple’s divorce on Friday, six months after news emerged that Jeff Bezos had been cheating on his wife with former television news anchor Lauren Sanchez.

The pair, who share four children together, announced their split in January via Twitter after 25 years of marriage.

The settlement leaves MacKenzie Bezos with a 4% stake in the online retail hub worth $38.8 billion — thrusting her to the top ranks of the world’s richest people. She’s currently at No. 22 on the Billboards Billionaire Index and only three other women — Francoise Bettencourt Meyers, Alice Walton and Jacqueline Mars — are worth more.
