Interestingly, MacKenzie's net worth would also drop to $32.9 billion, according to Bloomberg, as she owns 4% stake in Amazon.
On the other hand, Gates donated billions to charity
With that said, perhaps Gates never would have lost the title of the "world's richest" to Bezos had it not been for the former's philanthropy. Since 1994, Gates has donated $35 billion to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Bezos first overtook Gates in 2017
Notably, Bezos had first surpassed Gates's fortune briefly in July 2017.
While the race remained neck and neck for a while, by 2018, Bezos had added a whopping $78.5 billion to his fortune owing to a 104% surge in the price of Amazon stock.
Last year, Bezos made it to the Forbes 400 list with a worth of $160 billion, ending Gates's 24-year streak.
