Jeff Bezos is currently the richest man in the world with a 2019 net worth of $143 billion. Now his wife stands to be the richest woman in the world, thanks to probably the biggest payout ever in history for a Divorce settlement of $35 billion.
That figure represents approximately 4% of Amazon shares. Jeff still gets to keep all of the voting rights to himself though, which is a very good thing.
But what, pray tell, is Jeff Bezos net worth as at 2019 now that this huge chunk has been yanked off him?
In July 2018, Jeff was worth $150 billion, making him the richest man on earth and finally crippling the long running record of Microsoft founder, Bill Gates.
His net worth then jumped to $160 million in February 2019 after his company surpassed Microsoft to become the most valuable company in Wall Street.
And here is the kicker:
We hear that even despite the $35 billion divorce settlement significantly decreasing his value, based on current market prices Jeff Bezos’ Net worth is estimated at $107.4 billion.
It looks like the King still retains his crown as the richest man in the world, and Bill Gates whose net worth is an estimated $96.5 billion according to Forbes, is still his underdog…for now.
