MacKenzie Scott and Dan Jewett are parting ways.

MacKenzie, who was previously married to Jeff Bezos before tying the knot with Dan in 2021, filed for divorce from Dan on Sept. 26, per court documents obtained by E! News on Sept. 28. According to the documents, the pair share a written separation contract which MacKenzie is asking the court to uphold in their split. The separation contract will be used to divide their possessions, property, assets and debts.

As for Dan, the court documents show that he signed on Sept. 19 to agree with MacKenzie's petition. Dan's lawyer had no comment when contacted by E! News.

MacKenzie was named the fourth richest woman in the world by Forbes in April, with her net worth reported at $43.6 billion at the time.

She reportedly met Dan through a Seattle school that her four children attended, where he worked as a science teacher, according to The Washington Post. They tied the knot in 2021.

Most Expensive Celeb Divorces

Their marriage came two years after MacKenzie and former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced their divorce following 25 years of marriage. (They share four children who remain largely out of the spotlight.)

In January 2019, Jeff and MacKenzie released a joint statement in which they shared that "after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends."

Hours after the pair had broken the news of their split, multiple outlets reported that Jeff had allegedly been secretly dating former Good Day L.A. co-host Lauren Sanchez.

It was nearly four months later, in April 2019, that Jeff and MacKenzie took to Twitter to announce that they had finalized their divorce. And just one day later, Lauren and her then-husband Patrick Whitesell filed papers to officially end their marriage, which was settled in October.
