Musk is no longer world's richest or even second-richest person
Tesla chief Elon Musk lost his spot as the world’s second-richest person on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
Elon Musk’s Twitter posts keep sending Bitcoin prices tumbling. His own fortune is heading in the same direction.
On Monday, Tesla Inc.’s chief executive officer lost his spot as the world’s second-richest person to LVMH Chairman Bernard Arnault as the electric vehicle-maker’s shares fell 2.2%. That was on top of last week’s slump amid a rout in technology stocks and fresh signs of trouble in its China business.
Musk, who held the top spot in the Bloomberg Billionaires Index as recently as March, now has a fortune of $160.6 billion, down 24% from its January high.
