Mackenzie Scott and Dan Jewett tied the knot.

Jeff Bezos’ ex-wife, Mackenzie Scott has found love again again following her high-profile divorce from the billionaire Amazon founder.

One of the world’s richest women tied the knot with Dan Jewett, a science teacher at a Seattle private school.

The news was announced on Scott’s Giving Pledge page, in which Jewett signed on to help his new wife donate most of their wealth to charity.

Jewett’s blog post says: “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 particular meaning.

“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.”

Scott has an estimated personal fortune of around $53bn and she said in December she had already given away $4bn.

As well as the note on her Giving Pledge page, she also changed her author page on Amazon’s website to: “She lives in Seattle with her four children and her husband, Dan.”

Scott’s ex-husband, Bezos said in a statement: “Dan is such a great guy, and I am happy and excited for the both of them.”
