MacKenzie Scott, the ex-wife to Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder, has reportedly filed for divorce from Dan Jewett — less than two years after they tied the knot.

The billionaire philanthropist and Jewett, a science teacher at the prestigious Seattle school, got married in a low-key ceremony in March 2021.

But according to the New York Times, Scott, 52, filed for divorce from the teacher at the King County Superior Court in Washington on Monday.

The media outlet, citing court documents, also said Jewett did not oppose the petition.

It is understood that the divorce petition provides that “any division of property is laid out in a separation contract, agreed to by the couple, which is not public”.

The petition further added that the pair still live together in King County in the United States.

In the petition, Scott did not provide any reason for her decision to leave Jewett.

Last year, the duo acknowledged their union in a touching letter addressed to the public via a page on their website.

The divorce move comes about three years after Scott’s high-profile split from Bezos in April 2019.

Scott and the Amazon founder had parted ways after agreeing to a record-setting sum of $35 billion as the settlement.

They were married for 25 years.
