Divorce Announcement

Jeff and MacKenzie, who share four children, released a joint statement on his Twitter account on January 9, 2019, to announce their plans to divorce: “We want to make people aware of a development in our lives. As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends. We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other. If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again. We’ve had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures. Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends.”

The estranged couple live in Washington, which is a community property state where all assets and debts accrued during a marriage are considered equally owned by both spouses unless there is a prenup in place. They also have properties in Beverly Hills, New York and Washington, D.C.
