    Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is continuing to grow his status as the world’s richest man as his net worth is skyrocketing over the rest of the top earners in 2022. In the latest Forbes list, Musk increased his net worth to $282 billion, which is over $100 billion richer than Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, whose net worth is $183.6 billion, reports the Daily Mail.

    Musk was one of the biggest beneficiaries from the COVID-19 pandemic, as his net worth sat at just $26.6 billion (roughly Rs 2.02 lakh crores) at the beginning of 2020. In 2020, Musk’s wealth grew by over $110 billion, which is the record for anyone in the history of Forbes tracking such numbers.

    He is also well past the numbers for Microsoft founders Bill Gates ($134.2 billion) and Steve Ballmer ($97 billion), it added.
