Adani's overall net worth was $146.9 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, while Bezos' net worth was $145.8 billion.

Bezos' net worth dropped as a result of the recent tech market sell-off, which Bloomberg reported had decreased his wealth by around $45 billion since January.

His ex-wife, MacKenzie Scott, obtained a 4 percent share in Amazon as part of the $38 billion divorce settlement, which has also helped to lower his net worth.

According to Bloomberg, the difference between Bezos and Adani was only $19 million, and the Amazon CEO might regain his second position depending on how Amazon's stock performs.

For numerous years, the creator of Amazon was viewed as the richest man in the world. Before being surpassed by SpaceX founder Elon Musk, Forbes ranked him as such in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
