Jeff Bezos Loses World’s Richest Position To Bill Gates
Jeff Bezos has just lost his position as the richest person on Earth to Bill Gates.
According to Forbes, the Amazon honcho lost his title during after-hours trading Thursday, October 24th when the company’s shares plummeted 7 percent, dropping Bezos’ fortune to $103.9 Billion.
Bill Gate’s net worth stands at $105.7 billion. The stock market isn’t the only reason Jeff is now number 2 and he could still be on top if not for this year’s insanely costly divorce with ex-wife MacKenzie, who took a huge chunk of his fortune.
MacKenzie’s net worth now stands at $32.7 billion, placing her among the top 20 in the world.
