MacKenzie Scott and her husband, Dan Jewett, a former science teacher, are divorcing less than two years after they married.
Scott married science teacher Dan Jewett in Seattle this year after divorcing Amazon founder Jeff Bezos in 2019.
Scott’s marriage to Jewett, a former teacher at her children’s school, is no longer going on.
According to a copy of the application, Ms. Scott filed for divorce in King County Superior Court in Washington State on Monday, September 26, 2022.
McKenzie Scott and Dan Jewett announced their marriage in 2021 via a post on their Giving Pledge webpage, a philanthropic organization that encourages the world’s wealthiest people to give away the bulk of their fortune to charity organizations.
Scott has donated billions of dollars as part of her ambition to give away the majority of her money.
“I am married to one of the kindest and lovely women I know — and I am joining her in a vow to pass on great financial fortune to assist others,” Jewett stated in his Giving Pledge letter in 2021. “I’m looking forward to the opportunities for growth and learning that this project with MacKenzie will provide.”
However, Jewett’s note appears to have vanished from the Giving Pledge website, and his name was reportedly deleted from a Medium post-Ms. Scott wrote last year about their gifts, according to The New York Times on Wednesday, September 28.
According to the New York Times, Scott also removed Jewett’s author bio from Amazon.
