Jeff Bezos’ Ex-Wife, McKenzie Scott Files For Divorce From Her 2nd Husband
Billionaire philanthropist MacKenzie Scott, who was previously married to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, has filed for divorce from her second husband, Dan Jewett.
Scott, 52, submitted a petition for divorce in the King County Superior Court in Washington State .
According to the New York Times, the petition revealed that information about the former couple’s division of property is in a separate contract that they agreed to. The contract is not available to the public. Jewett, a former Seattle science teacher, did not contest the separation, according to the newspaper.
Jewett and Scott tied the knot in March 2021. Their nuptials came two years after Scott divorced Bezos.
The Amazon founder and Scott had been married since 1993. She was left with 4% stake in Amazon after their divorce, NBC News and Reuters reported at the time.
Their settlement was the most expensive divorce in history as Scott’s Amazon stock was worth more than $36 billion.
Since her separation from Bezos, Scott has made large donations to multiple charities and equity causes.
