The founder and CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, is again the richest person in the world. Forbes noted that the wealth of bald-headed men until early 2019 reached 131 billion US dollars, or about 1.1 billion quadrillion.
The amount of Bezos' wealth has increased by 19 billion USD compared to a year ago. Last year, the net worth of Bezos was 100 billion US dollars.
Thus, for two consecutive years, he won the title of rich world man, surpassing the founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates.
The news of the divorce between him and his wife MacKenzie caused investors to worry about the performance of Amazon's business. The concern was that Mackenzie had been an accountant for the company he founded.
The matter of the affair between Bezos and television host Lauren Sanchez is alleged to have led MacKenzie to sue her husband for divorce.
The separation between the two will probably affect the wealth of Bezos. Indeed, the state of Washington requires that divorced couples share equitably their assets during the marriage.
On the other hand, if MacKenzie pocketed half of Bezos' wealth, he would automatically become the richest woman in the world.
Last year, Bezos 'wealth surpassed Bill Gates' record as the richest person in the world for twelve consecutive years from 2001 to 2017. Gates could possibly retain the title if he did not grant 3 , 5 billion US dollars to the foundation he founded.
Bezos and Gates are just two of the names in milinuer dnia over the past two decades. Two other names are Berkshire Hathaway's CEO Warren Buffet and Carlos Slim Helu of Mexico.
