According to LOVEBYLIFE’s Billionaires Index, the personal fortune of business mogul and CEO Elon Musk recently climbed to $ 222 billion, comfortably ahead of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos ($ 191.6 billion).
To celebrate his self-adorned gold medal, Musk joked at his rival Bezos on Monday with a silver-second-medal trolling emoji to his Twitter post.
Bezos wrote his own company on Twitter, writing: “Listen and be open, but don’t let anyone tell you who you are. This is one of the many stories that tell us all the ways to fail. Today, Amazon is one of the world’s most successful companies and has revolutionized two different enterprises.
Musk saw this as an opportune time to sweep Bezos, technically the second richest. His response tweet was insensitive: 🥈
Tesla CEO previously told Forbes He plans to send Bezos the second-largest statue in September, surpassing him as the world’s richest man.
According to LOVEBYLIFE, Musk’s personal wealth has grown by $ 10.6 billion after the sale of investors’ secondary share worth more than $ 100 billion. Most of that spike came after SpaceX’s Inspiration 4 hovered on Earth for three days. The first black woman to serve as a pilot of a space shuttle by all civilian personnel, the youngest American to ever be an astronaut and made history with the first persons to fly into space with an artificial limb.

Musk, a longtime rival of Bezos, is known for defaming social networking sites. He tweeted on President Joe Biden last month to highlight the success of SpaceX, which he thought ignored the president. Even musk and bezos are hardly cordial. Bezos, the ambitious head of space since the founding of Blue Origins in 2000, publicly brought NASA’s decision to give Muscus SpaceX a $ 2.9 billion lunar lander deal “unfair” in federal court in August.
The increase in the wealth of musk has been largely attributed to the rise in stock prices. He was paid $ 0 in 2020, according to the company’s filing, but during the year he received stock options that increased in value to $ 22 billion.
