ELON MUSK COULDN’T RESIST TAKING SHOTS at Jeff Bezos after overtaking his rival to become the richest man in the world.
The Tesla boss is now worth just under £150 billion, compared to Jeff Bezos‘ £143 billy stack, according to Forbes.
And to celebrate eclipsing the Amazon founder, Musk said he’s going to send him a silver medal and a statue with the number two on it.
Musk gloated about his plans to rub his success in Bezos face to Forbes and said: “I’m sending a giant statue of the digit ‘2’ to Jeffrey B..along with a silver medal.”
Musk’s dig at Bezos is the latest in a long running feud between the pair who have been going at in their battle to reach space first.
A few months ago Bezos’ space company Blue Origin complained when NASA awarded £2.1 billion to Musk’s rival company Space X in order to aid them getting humans on the moon.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
Bezos then followed this up with a lawsuit against Space X, launched through Amazon affiliate company Kuiper over SpaceX’s plans to expand its Starlink satellite network to the Federal Communications Commission.
This led Musk to make another verbal attack on Bezos and he claimed the ex-Amazon boss had retired just to hound his company.
On Twitter, Musk wrote: “Turns out Bezos retired in order to pursue a full-time job filing lawsuits against Space X.”
