Jeff Bezos richest person in the world
Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos is the richest person in the world. He has become the first billionaire in modern history to have a net worth of $200 billion. Not only as a wealthy person, but he has also been in the headlines for other reasons as well. Sometimes he gives one-fourth of his stake in Amazon to his wife in a divorce, and sometimes he records a unique record of highest-earning in lockdown. He has now become the first billionaire in modern history to have a net worth of $200 billion.
The ex-wife also made a record
Bezos’ ex-wife Mackenzie Scott owns a 3.8 percent stake in the $1.68 trillion company. The increase in stakes has also led to a record-breaking increase in his earnings. His net worth has now reached 63 billion dollars. Now she is the second richest woman in the world. He has also beaten L’Oreal’s mistress François Betancourt Meiers. Alice Walton, daughter of Walmart founder Sam Walton, is the richest woman in the world.
