Jeff Bezos’ ex-wife MacKenzie Scott is officially single again after finalizing her divorce from her second husband

  • Bezos’ ex-wife MacKenzie Scott, 52, has finalized her divorce from new husband 
  • Scott married a chemistry teacher at her child’s school, Dan Jewett, in 2021
  • The two signed a pre-nuptial agreement and Jewett did not contest the divorce 

The ex-wife of Jeff Bezos has finalized her second divorce less than two years after marrying a chemistry teacher at her child’s private school.

MacKenzie Scott, 52, officially split with teacher Dan Jewett, according to court papers signed by a Washington state judge, TMZ reported.

The two married in March 2021, two years after Bezos was exposed having an affair with then-mistress Lauren Sanchez, who is now his partner.

Scott and Jewett signed a pre-nuptial agreement before their marriage in California and Jewett did not contest the divorce, which was filed in Washington state, where they were both living.

Scott filed for the divorce from Jewett last September but despite the pre-nup it is not yet known how her $37.5 million Seattle mansion will be divided between them.

Bezos was married to Scott for nearly 25 years and they have four children together. 

Scott famously won $36 billion from her split with Bezos in 2019 and is one of the wealthiest women in the world. Since the split she has since donated about $12.8 billion to hundreds of charities.

Bloomberg estimates Scott’s net worth at more than $28 billion.

In March of 2021, Scott used the Giving Pledge site to announce her marriage to Jewett by adding his name to a vow to donate the majority of their wealth to charity. 

After she filed for divorce he was removed from that page, leaving a photo of Scott alone.  

It is currently unknown what will happen to the $37.5 million Seattle mansion Scott reportedly purchased in 2019 following her divorce with Bezos

There are no plans for alimony payments, split custody of Scott's four children that she shares with Bezos, nor did the couple indicate they had a child together in their short year together in the divorce petition filed on Wednesday in Washington State

Jewett’s name was also edited out of a Medium post that Scott wrote last year about their philanthropy.

He reportedly stopped teaching at the school last year, noting that his high-profile presence at the private academy had become a distraction.

Given Scott and Jewett’s proclivity for privacy, the full terms of their divorce will likely remain a secret.

Domenic Romano, founder and managing attorney of the Romano Law firm, noted that it was uncommon for someone of Scott’s wealth to have gotten married without a prenuptial agreement.

Scott, who has remained relatively quite about her full assets, reportedly owned three large estates, two in Beverly Hills and one in Seattle, with the billionaire giving the two California properties away to charity last year.
