According to Forbes, MacKenzie Scott’s net worth is estimated to be $43.6 billion. While Scott is best known for her philanthropy and her record-breaking divorce settlement with Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos,
She is also the author of two novels under the pen name MacKenzie Bezos: The Testing of Luther Albright, published in 2005, and Traps, published in 2013.
She told Vogue in 2013 that finishing her first novel, which was later named a Los Angeles Times “book of the year” in 2005, had taken “a lot of tears.”
According to Forbes, Scott has given away $12.5 billion to over 1,250 organizations in the last two years alone.
Her unprecedented rate of donating hasn’t depleted her fortune yet; in 2021, she was still the world’s fourth richest woman and 30th richest person.
