MacKenzie Scott was married to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos for 26 years before divorcing him in 2019. With Dan Jewett, the happiness in love seems to return to her only a little later. But this marriage is now history after a little over a year.
Businesswoman and author MacKenzie Scott has filed for divorce from husband Dan Jewett. That reports The New York Times, citing court documents received Monday by King County Superior Court in Washington state.
The ex-wife of multi-billionaire Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and the former teacher were married in 2021. The couple announced their marriage in a public letter on the Giving Pledge charity campaign website.
At the time, Jewett announced that he would support his wife in the distribution of her wealth. “I am married to one of the most generous and kind people I know – and I join her in the commitment to pass on a huge financial fortune to serve others,” he said.
Separation agreement regulates the division of assets
“The Giving Pledge” is an initiative of billionaires Bill Gates and Warren Buffet and is aimed at extremely wealthy people. Participants pledge to donate a portion of their assets to charity.
The court documents show that Jewett did not contest the divorce. The division of assets is regulated in a divorce agreement, which the couple has agreed to and which is not public.
After the divorce from Bezos, to whom she was married from 1993 to 2019, Scott announced that she wanted to donate a large part of her fortune. According to the New York Times, she has given more than $12 billion to charitable organizations in the past three years.
