There has been a huge upheaval in the list of the world's rich. Jeff Bezos has snatched the crown of the world's richest man from Elon Musk. A $17.6 billion drop in Elon Musk's fortune on Monday stripped him of his spot as the number one billionaire. Now Jeff Bezos is at number one with a net worth of $200 billion.

Elon Musk is now second in the Bloomberg Billionaires Index with a net worth of $198 billion. At number three is Bernard Arnault. He has a net worth of 197 billion dollars.

Why did Musk's wealth decline?

Shares of Elon Musk's company Tesla took a hit on Monday. Tesla shares fell 7.16 percent to $188.14 on Monday. A large portion of Musk's wealth also comes from Tesla shares.

This reduction has had a direct impact on Musk's net worth. Tesla shares are down nearly 25% so far this year. This is why Elon Musk tops the list of losers with $31.3 billion so far this year. On the other hand, Bezos, the founder of e-commerce company Amazon, has seen a huge jump in his wealth this year. His wealth has increased by more than 23 billion dollars.
