Billionaire Seattle philanthropist MacKenzie Scott has filed for divorce from Dan Jewett, the science teacher she married in March 2021, according to the New York Times, which cited the court this week.

Scott filed for divorce in King County Superior Court on Monday, according to the Times, which reported the story on Wednesday, saying it saw one filing. The Times also reported that Scott had deleted Jewett's name from various websites where his name appeared alongside his own. 

Scott was previously married to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, but the couple divorced in 2019 after 25 years of marriage. Jewett is a science teacher at Lakeside School, an exclusive private school in North Seattle best known as the teacher of Microsoft co-founders Bill Gates and Paul Allen, and attended by Scott's children. 

Scott, 52, is an author with a net worth of $34.9 billion, according to Forbes. Bloomberg put this figure at $27.8 billion and placed him 41st in its index of the world's richest people. 

Since her divorce from Bezos, Scott has donated more than $12 billion to numerous charities and nonprofits. The effort is part of his promise and giving pledge, in which wealthy individuals publicly pledge to give more of their wealth to philanthropic causes. 

Jewett's commitment first appeared on a webpage containing Scott's commitment letter. Photos of Scott and Jewett together are also missing. 

In a March 6, 2021 memo, Jewett wrote that it was unwise to plan to give away most of his wealth because, as a teacher, he did not want such a position. "Now, out of compassion, I am married to one of the most generous and kind people I know," Jewett wrote. 

Scott's multi-billion dollar donation has gotten a lot of publicity over the past two years. He gave, for example, $1.67 billion in July 2020; $4 billion in December 2020; and $2.7 billion in June 2021.
