Mackenzie Scott and Jeff Bezos made headlines in 2019 when the news of their divorce hit mainstream media. But, two years following the split, Scott happily walked down the aisle again.
As reported by The Wall Street Journal on Sunday, Scott married Seattle teacher Dan Jewett. When the two officially wed is unknown.
Bezos seems to be very supportive of the partnership, calling Dan a “great guy.” “I am happy and excited for the both of them,” he told The Wall Street Journal.
Rumors of Scott’s remarriage more than likely began to circulate after Jewett added his name to Scott’s Giving Pledge, an initiative started by Warren Buffet and Bill and Melinda Gates.
Grateful for the opportunity to give back, Jewett never imagined his efforts would be as great as they soon will become.
“It is strange to be writing a letter indicating I plan to give away the majority of my wealth during my lifetime, as I have never sought to gather the kind of wealth required to feel like saying such a thing would have a particular meaning,” Jewett wrote.
“In a stroke of happy coincidence, I am married to one of the most generous and kind people I know — and joining her in a commitment to pass on an enormous financial wealth to serve others,” Jewett continued on.
Jewett is not wrong about his new wife’s generous nature.
After Scott’s split with Bezos, she was left with a 4% stake in Amazon, which then was a whopping $38.3 billion, Bloomberg reported, according to People.
Since then, Scott has been a dedicated philanthropist.
In just the past four months, the 50-year-old has donated about $4.2 billion to 384 organizations.
As of now, Scott is the 22nd richest person in the world, People reported.
