Mackenzie Scott, the ex-wife of Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, has married a science teacher, Dan Jewett at her children’s school.
Scott, who is one of the world’s richest women divorced the Amazon founder Jeff Bezos two years ago.
The news of her marriage was revealed via the Giving Pledge philanthropy website.
“Dan is such a great guy, and I am happy and excited for the both of them,” Bezos said in a statement.
Scott, who is worth around $53bn according to Forbes’s most recent estimate, has given away more than $4bn (£2.9bn) of her fortune. She stated that her intention is to give the majority of her fortune away, devoting much of her donations to women-led charities, food banks, and Black colleges.
Scott, who was married to Bezos for 25 years and helped him start Amazon in 1994 is also the author of two novels.
According to her Amazon author page, she lives in Seattle with her four children and her husband, Dan, who teaches at the prestigious school attended by her children.
At the time of their 2019 divorce, Bezos was the richest man in the world, with his stake of more than 16% of Amazon. Scott received 4% of Amazon’s shares as part of their divorce settlement.
Scott currently ranks the 22nd richest person while Bezos is in top spot with a fortune of $177bn.
