The change in ranking came as Tesla shares fell resulting in Musk losing USD 4.6 billion. 

The Bloomberg Billionaires Index, which ranks the world’s 500 wealthiest people, once again has Bezos at the top with a net worth of USD 191.2 billion. 

Musk had overtaken the Amazon boss last month when his net worth crossed USD 185 billion, snatching away a position Bezos had held since 2017.
