Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos once again becomes the richest person on the planet after briefly ceding his title to Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, thanks to his Amazon stock.
After the markets closed on Friday, Forbes says Jeff is now worth $109.9 billion, moving him back ahead of Bill and his $105.8 billion net worth.
Amazon shares fell 7 per cent in after-hours trading on Thursday, leaving Bezos down to $103.9 billion. While Bill Gates is currently worth $105.7 billion.
Bezos ended Gates' 24-year run as the richest man in 2018 and became the first man on earth with a net worth of $160 billion.
Bezos first joined The Forbes 400 list of richest Americans in 1998, one year after Amazon went public, with a net worth of $1.6 billion.
The Bezos couple finalised their divorce in April in what was reported as the biggest divorce settlement in history, entitling MacKenzie Bezos to Jeff Bezos' stocks worth around $36 billion.
