The net worth of Elon Musk, a vocal proponent of Dogecoin, has taken a massive hit this year, with French fashion tycoon Bernard Arnault now reclaiming the title of the world’s richest person

Controversial tech entrepreneur Elon Musk is no longer the world’s richest person, according to Forbes Magazine.

Musk has slipped below French fashion tycoon Bernard Arnault. As of today, the two are valued at $185.4 billion and $185.3 billion, respectively. 

Indian coal magnate Gautam Adani comes in third place with a net worth of $134.8 billion. 

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’s fortune stands at $115 billion. Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett, who is also known as one of the harshest cryptocurrency critics, is also in the top five with a net worth of $107 billion.

Musk’s net worth has taken a severe hit due to the disastrous performance of the Tesla stock, which is down a whopping 57% on the year-to-date basis. At press time, TSLA is down 3.85% as the e-car manufacturer is struggling to deal with slowing demand. 

Arnault serves as the chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton SE, the largest luxury goods company in the world. LVMH controls such prominent brands as Christian Dior, Sephora, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Loewe, Kenzo, and others. 

The French tycoon’s fortune received a boost from LVMH’s stronger-than-expected third-quarter earnings that were reported in November. 

Unlike Tesla cars, luxury goods continue to see strong demand, with  Louis Vuitton and Dior seeing organic growth in 2022.
