People are thirsting on newly single Jeff Bezos with the #PickMeDaddyChallenge

That means in the state of Washington where there are "community property rules", couples without a prenup split assets down the middle, thus meaning the Amazon CEO's fortune of $137B could be cut directly in half with a 50/50 split.

Bezos and his wife announced they would divorce on Wednesday.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was sending racy sexts to his glamorous neighbor months before announcing the end of his marriage this week, according to a new report. "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 pursing ventures and adventures".

Sanchez is still married to Hollywood talent mogul husband Patrick Whitesell, and sources say they separated this late past year.

The couple originally met as colleagues at NY hedge fund D.E. Shaw.

Bezos has been photographed over the past four months cavorting with former Extra anchor, So You Think You Can Dance host and Hollywood wife Lauren Sanchez Whitesell. The Bezos have four children. In another exchange, the Amazon boss reportedly wrote, "I want to smell you, I want to breathe you in". He is now worth $137 billion dollars, which includes 400,000 acres of property. That's despite the fact that the breakup comes amid shocking reports this week about Jeff Bezos' reported affair with Sanchez, including allegations that he sent her a slew of steamy texts and pictures.

Federer to launch Australian Open defense against Istomin

Sanchez, 49, also a helicopter pilot with her own aerial production firm, was hired to shoot aerial shots for Blue Origin, a private space company Bezos founded in 2000, the Post reported.

Meanwhile, Jeff and his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie, made it clear in their statement that they had been separated for a "long period".

Bezos is the richest man in the world.

TMZ's sources say Jeff and MacKenzie have known Lauren and Patrick as good friends for 10 years.

Bezos issued a statement on their separation, saying that "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". Should she be granted these billions in the divorce, she would become the richest woman in the world.
