Tesla CEO, Elon Musk is now the richest person in the world, passing Jeff Bezos. According to CNBC, Elon Musk just became the richest person in the world, with a net worth of more than $185 billion.⁣

Thursday's increase in Tesla's share price pushed Musk past Jeff Bezos, who had been the richest person since 2017 and is currently worth about $184 billion. Musk's wealth surge over the past year marks the fastest rise to the top of the rich list in history and marks a dramatic financial turnaround for the famed entrepreneur who just 18 months ago was in the headlines for Tesla's rapid cash burn and his personal leverage against Tesla's stock.
