After divorce from Jeff Bezos in 2019, MacKenzie Scott divorced Dan Jewett in Washington state on Monday. The divorce comes amid tabloid reports that the billionaire was having an affair with a TV host. MacKenzie Scott reportedly received $38 billion from Jeff Bezos, but she is not saying whether her relationship with Jewett was real.
According to a new report, Scott and Jewett have filed for divorce. Jewett taught chemistry at the private school where Scott’s children attend, and the two are now separating. Although Scott is notoriously private, he hasn’t yet issued a statement. He did not respond to a request for comment. The couple is not sharing much information about their divorce, but it’s likely that Jewett won’t fight the divorce. The divorce filing says that the property division and other details will remain private.
Jewett and Scott were married in California. The couple also live in the Seattle area. Jewett hasn’t filed a motion for a restraining order, and Scott hasn’t filed an appeal. The couple’s divorce may be final as soon as December. This will give them the opportunity to file federal taxes as individuals in 2022.
