Elon Musk has just become the world’s richest man according to the Bloomberg wealth Inditex. With his net worth now being over $188.5 billion, Musk has surpassed Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.
Although a billionaire, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO takes a relatively small salary from his companies. His main source of income comes from his shares within his own businesses. In fact, Tesla’s stock value went up by 700% last year, making it the highest valued automobile company.
However, the 49-year-old entrepreneur is not solely known for his financial and technological achievements. Prolific Twitter user, Musk has gotten himself a reputation of meme lover and maker. From countless 420 jokes to his numerous Burning Man references, his tweets are always causing a stir.
In addition, Musk is in close connection with some of the highest profiled celebrities. His long term girlfriend and the mother of his newborn son is none other than singer-songwriter Grimes. The pair attended the Met Gala in 2018, where Grimes was seen wearing a custom Tesla choker and reportedly wearing a dress designed by Musk himself. The billionaire has also been seen with the likes of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Travis Scott, Jared Leto and many more. In fact, Musk and West seem to be close friends, often showcasing their bromance on Twitter.
Over the past few years, the billionaire has completely changed the meaning of entrepreneur. Whilst the world’s richest people like to keep a low profile and maintain a level of seriousness in each action, Musk does not hesitate to show his ‘cool’ side. One way or another, Musk always gets people talking.
