Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Blue Origin, only follows one person on Twitter and they don’t follow him back.

Bezos, it seems, is only interested in following his ex-wife, Mackenzie Scott (formerly Bezos) on the social media network.

And in an odd twist, Scott also only follows one person on Twitter but it is not her ex-husband.

Instead, Scott follows Hadas Gold, CNN’s Jerusalem correspondent.

Bezos and Scott announced their separation in a joint Twitter statement in January 2019.

“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 pursuing ventures and adventure," the statement said.

“Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends."

It is not clear why Bezos only follows his ex-wife on Twitter, as opposed to his current partner US news anchor Lauren Sanchez.

It is also not clear why Scott chooses to follow Gold as neither have spoken about it publicly.

Who is Hadas Gold?

The CNN Jerusalem correspondent previously covered media, tech and politics for CNN from London, focusing on how the three intersected and affected one another.

In 2017, Gold was named one of the "most influential media reporters" by Mediaite.

In 2011, she was awarded a fellowship with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.

Billion-dollar divorces

When the couple divorced, Scott became US$36 billion wealthier, thanks to the settlement, of which she vowed to give at least half to charity.

Since then, she has kept to her promise, donating multiple billions at a time to charitable organisations.

Another high-profile divorce from the billionaires’ club came recently with the announcement that Bill and Melinda Gates were going their separate ways.

The couple announced the decision in a joint statement to Twitter in May this year.

“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” the pair said in the joint statement.

“Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives.”
