Sad MacKenzie Scott Bezos News

Good Morning America

MacKenzie Scott, ex wife of Jeff Bezos filed for divorce. Ms. Scott married science teacher Dan Jewett a year ago.

Three years ago, she and Jeff Bezos announced they were splitting after 25 years of marriage. After divorcing Jeff Bezos she had over 37 million dollars. She made a pledge to give half to charity.

Per information acquired by the New York Times, Mr. Jewett agreed to the divorce and property division set up in a prenuptial agreement.

Looks like MacKenzie is ready to move on since she immediately removed Jewett’s name from her Amazon author page and Giving Pledge page.

Jewett made a statement on their Giving Pledge page, “In a stroke of happy coincidence, I am married to one of the most generous and kind people I know — and joining her in a commitment to pass on an enormous financial wealth to serve others.”

As well as declaring his plan to give back like his wife, he said, “It is strange to be writing a letter indicating I plan to give away the majority of my wealth during my lifetime, as I have never sought to gather the kind of wealth required to feel like saying such a thing would have particular meaning.”

Jewett worked at Lakeside School, where Scott’s kids attended.
