MacKenzie Bezos will become the world’s fourth-richest woman after her divorce from Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos is finalised.

She’ll receive a 4% Amazon stake, currently worth about $36bn, as part of the settlement, according to a filing on Thursday from the Seattle-based company. The divorce is expected to be completed in about 90 days.

Jeff Bezos will continue to exercise sole voting authority over the shares, according to the filing. He will probably remain the world’s richest person, with a 12% Amazon stake that’s currently valued at $107bn.

He’ll also keep assets including the Washington Post and space-exploration company Blue Origin, which adds about $4bn to his fortune, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

MacKenzie’s stake in Amazon ranks her behind the $54bn fortune of L’Oreal SA heiress Francoise Bettencourt Meyers, the $44bn held by Alice Walton and the $37bn net worth of Jacqueline Badger Mars.
