Scott’s Divorse from Second Husband
The writer and multi-billionaire philanthropist MacKenzie Scott, who was previously wed to Jeff Bezos, the creator of Amazon, has filed for divorce from her second husband.
According to court documents, Scott filed for divorce husband Dan Jewett in Washington state on Monday, according to the New York Times.
Scott and Bezos’ kids attended a private school in Seattle where Jewett taught science. They were wed in March of last year.
Jewett was described by a friend as “earnest, not very edgy… the perfect person to wind up with this money to give away – no sense of greed at all” in an article in the Times.
Jewett expressed his gratitude for the “extraordinary privilege” of working with others to donate assets that have the potential to accomplish so much good when shared in a letter that was made public by the Giving Pledge.
“By a wonderful accident, I am married to one of the most giving and kind individuals I know, and I am joining her in a promise to pass on an abundance of kindness,” he continued.
The Times reported on Wednesday that Jewett’s letter is no longer visible on Scott’s Giving Pledge page. The newspaper also mentioned Scott’s Amazon page and how “without fanfare, his name was suddenly removed out of a Medium article Ms Scott had written last year about their gifts.”
“We individually come by the gifts we have to contribute by an infinite chain of influences and fortuitous breaks we can never fully grasp,” Scott says in her letter posted on the Giving Pledge website.
“I have a disproportionate quantity of money to share, in addition to whatever gifts life has given me.”
