According to Forbes, the Amazon Icon lost his title after trading on Thursday, October 24th, when the company’s shares plummeted 7 percent, dropping Bezos’ fortune to $103.9 billion.

The stock isn’t the only reason Bezos is now the second richest man, he could still have been on top, if not for this year’s outrageously costly divorce with his ex-wife, Mackenzie, which took a massive chunk of his fortune.

Following the couple’s divorce, Mackenzie’s net worth stands at $32.7 billion, placing her among the top 20 in the world.
