Parents, Siblings, and Family
Preston was born in the USA to his billionaire parents, Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie Scott. He is the eldest son of the former couple and has two younger brothers.
Besides his brothers, he also has an adoptive sister, whom his parents adopted from China.
For privacy concerns, Preston is the only one whose name is out in the media, while the name of his younger siblings is still a secret.
While the personal life of Preston and his siblings is private, it is not the case for his parents.
His parents met each other when both of them were working in Manhattan for D.E. Shaw. The two dated for a year before turning into husband and wife in 1993.
After they got married, they left their job at the Shaw and moved to Seattle to start their online bookstore.
They started their bookstore in a rented garage and named it Cadabra but later changed it to Amazon after the river.
While Jeff took the front of the store as its CEO, MacKenzie worked behind the scenes to deal with cheques and contracts.
The former couple became a millionaire in 1997 after the IPO of their company raised 54 million USD. The millionaire then became a billionaire in 1999.
The former couple was doing great and even added more features to their online bookstore to make it one of the leading e-commerce sites.
However, things turned upside down when Jeff started an extramarital affair with the news journalist, Lauren Sánchez.
The former couple was already separated when the intimate texts of Jeff to Lauren became viral.
Finally, the former power couple decided to end their relationship legally and got a divorce in 2019.
Despite the divorce, they maintained a healthy relationship with their children and shared 50-50 custody.
Currently, Jeff is working as the founder and executive of Amzaon and is dating his girlfriend, Lauren.
Meanwhile, MacKenzie is busy with her books and philanthropist works and has married Dan Jewett, a high school chemistry teacher.
Despite Jeff and MacKenzie starting their new life, they are still close to their four children, including Preston.
