Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon is now worth a jaw-dropping $204.6 billion—which is nearly $90 billion more than the world’s second-richest person, Bill Gates, whose own net-worth sits at $116.1 billion.
According to Forbes, Amazon’s stock went up 2% and now Bezos’s net worth is up by $4.9 billion. This makes him the first person in the entire world to be worth a whopping $204.6 billion.
With his wealth, Bezos can finance the entire Kenyan budget for the next 7 years without worries. The Amazon founder could even be more richer had he not gone through the most expensive divorce settlement in history last year.
The move simultaneously pushed his ex-wife MacKenzie Scott, 50, to the brink of becoming the world’s richest woman.
