MacKenzie Scott, the ex of Amazon boss and richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos, has remarried a physics and chemistry teacher. Scott is one of the richest women in the world.
She currently ranks 22 on the rich lists of Forbes magazine and Bloomberg news agency, with an estimated net worth of around $ 53 billion.
Scott had been married to Bezos for many years in the community of property. After the divorce, she acquired, among other things, an interest of 4 percent in the webshop group Amazon.
Scott has previously indicated that she wants to donate a large part of the many billions she has leftover from her marriage to Bezos to charity. Last year, for example, she donated more than $ 4 billion to food banks and emergency aid because of the corona crisis.
The value of its stake in Amazon surged at the time as its stock price benefited from the popularity of web shopping due to the corona crisis.
It is not known whether the marriage to her new husband, Dan Jewett, is under a prenuptial agreement. Her new husband supports Scott’s philanthropic pledges, he says. He calls her “the kindest and most considerate person I know”.
Jewett taught at the school of Scott and Bezos’s children, according to American media. Bezos calls his ex’s new husband “a great man” and is happy for them, he writes in a statement.
