MacKenzie Scott, who once walked away with nearly $37 billion after getting a divorce from Jeff Bezos, is having marital issues for the second time. After her split from billionaire Jeff Bezos in 2019, MacKenzie Scott got married to Dan Jewett, a science teacher, but things took a turn recently as MacKenzie Scott filed for a divorce. It was announced in March 2021 that novelist MacKenzie Scott got married to the chemistry teacher. The novelist has a fortune worth around $34 billion thanks to her 4% stake in Amazon. People on social media trolled her saying that she should pay Dan Jewett.
