MacKenzie Scott, a novelist and billionaire philanthropist once married to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, has filed for divorce from her second husband.

The New York Times said that Scott filed for divorce from Dan Jewett in Washington state on Monday, citing court records. Scott got a divorce from one of the richest men in the world, Jeff Bezos, in 2019 after tabloids wrote about his relationship with a TV host. Scott got $38 billion.

She said she would give all of her money to charity and signed the Giving Pledge, which is a program for very wealthy people who want to help others. Scott has given a lot of money to help good causes, like making housing more affordable.

Scott and Bezos sent their kids to a private school in Seattle where Jewett taught science. In March of last year, they got married.

A friend told the Times that Jewett was “honest, not very edgy… the perfect person to get this money and give it away because they are not greedy at all.”

In a letter published by the Giving Pledge, Jewett said that he was “grateful for the rare opportunity to help give away assets that can do so much good when shared.”

He also said, “It’s a happy accident that I’m married to one of the most generous and kind people I know, and I’ve made a promise with her to use our huge wealth to help other people.”

The Times noticed on Wednesday that Jewett’s letter is no longer on Scott’s Giving Pledge page. The paper also said that “his name was recently taken out of a Medium post-Ms. Scott wrote last year about their gifts, without any fuss,” as well as from Scott’s Amazon page.

In her letter on the Giving Pledge website, Scott writes, “We each have gifts to offer because of an endless number of influences and lucky breaks that we can never fully understand.

“In addition to the things that life has given me, I also have a lot of money to share.”
