Lately, Elon Musk has had a series of setbacks, between the scandal of the birth of his twins with one of his employees, the tensions he caused in the Ukrainian-Russian war and the takeover of Twitter. With all these problems, the CEO of Tesla has lost around $100 billion in less than a year.

Even for the richest man in the world, life is not always easy, and Elon Musk demonstrated this to us over the past 12 months. Victim of numerous scandals in his private and professional life, the CEO of Tesla would have lost around 100 billion dollars in less than a year, according to a report by Forbes. Thus, the fortune of the billionaire, which exceeded 300 billion dollars in November 2021, is today estimated at $210 billion.

But even with this colossal loss, Elon Musk keeps his place as the richest man in the world. And the gap between his fortune and that of Jeff Bezos – the founder of Amazon and the second richest man in the world – is still very large, with more than 50 billion dollars more for the founder of SpaceX. If the fall in Elon Musk’s personal fortune is partly attributed to his own decisions, the impact of the current economic context cannot be ruled out. Indeed, like everyone else, the billionaire’s finances are also affected by the current slowdown in the global economy.

Despite this immense loss in his fortune, Elon Musk seems to remain confident and continues to make crazy decisions.
