In the process, Musk has now surpassed Amazon founder and fellow billionaire Jeff Bezos, who was earlier titled as the richest man in the world.

Now, according to a ‘Forbes’ report, Elon Musk sent a ‘short email’ stating that he wants to send Jeff Bezos a giant statue of the digit ‘2’, along with a silver medal – apparently mocking the fact that the Amazon founder had to settle for the number 2 position in the list of world’s richest men.

The two entrepreneurs are often seen having a celebratory rivalry. However, things got bitter as the space race between the two billionaires took a legal turn. Earlier, in August, Bezos sued America’s leading space agency, NASA, for giving a contract to Musk’s SpaceX.

Bezos became the first-ever to be worth $200 billion, in August 2020. However, Tesla shares surging led to Musk catching up and then becoming the world’s richest person in January this year for a brief period.

As per reports, Bezos and Musk have held the title back and forth multiple times in 2021. As of Tuesday, however, Musk has come to be the richest person in the world again, with Bezos coming in at the second spot and Bernard Arnault, chief of French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH, coming in third.
