According to news reports, the 52-year-old novelist headed into the Washing State King Count Superior Court on Monday, September 26, to fulfill documents needed to move forward with a legal split from her husband.
After being married for only slightly over a year, Jewett, 47, allegedly did not contest to his wife's motions for divorce. And, while many question whether or not the couple signed a prenup prior to their California wedding, it is confirmed the estranged pair did sign a contract detailing terms of the division of marital property between the two.

"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," Jewett wrote at the time of his marriage announcement on Giving Pledge, an organization that encourages wealthy individuals to gift their riches to charities.
The mother-of-four shares four children with her ex-husband, Bezos, however, the parental pair has continually maintained the privacy of them all.
The expert entrepreneur and Scott finalized a $38 billion settlement in 2019, to which the Traps author revealed she was “happy to be giving him all of my interests in the Washington Post and Blue Origin, and 75% of our Amazon stock plus voting control of my shares to support his continued contributions with the teams of these incredible companies.”
Bezos, 58, added to his ex-wife's statement at the time, writing, “I’m grateful for [MacKenzie’s] support and for her kindness in this process and am very much looking forward to our new relationship as friends and co-parents."
