Top 10 World's Richest Men: Bezos Dethrones Elon Musk To Reclaim Title

The Bloomberg Billionaires Index revealed on Monday that the founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, had reclaimed his status as the world’s wealthiest individual, surpassing Elon Musk.

The tracker indicates that Bezos’ net worth has reached $200 billion, surpassing the Tesla chief’s $198 billion.

Over the past few months, Musk, heading X (formerly Twitter) and SpaceX, has experienced a decrease in his wealth exceeding $30 billion, attributed to Tesla’s shares plunging by 25 percent, along with a January court ruling annulling his substantial $55.8 billion Tesla compensation deal, originally agreed upon in 2018.

Bezos, who stepped down from his role at Amazon, still enjoys the fruits of the e-commerce behemoth’s increasing stock value. He retains his status as the company’s largest stakeholder despite divesting $8.5 billion in stocks.
