Jeff Bezos traveled to space this week on his private rocket, which reminded everyone of the private-shaped rocket in the classic comedy Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.
Entertainment Tonight will take you down memory lane about the blue origin of the Amazon founder’s pocket rocket:
Meanwhile, Bezos ex-wife Mackenzie Scott gave away billions of dollars to charities in the past year. Via The Nation:
Armed with the fortune of Amazon stock she secured in her divorce from Jeff Bezos—her personal wealth is currently estimated at $65 billion—Scott has garnered widespread accolades for her recent philanthropic giving, including $2.75 billion last month to “historically underfunded and overlooked” groups. These no-strings-attached gifts, Scott noted in a post on Medium, were awarded with a “humbling belief that it would be better if disproportionate wealth were not concentrated in a small number of hands.”
Her divorce happened because Bezos was showing off his pocket rocket on his phone, and the pics intended for his lady friend ended up being given to the National Enquirer. Ouch!
