Jeff Bezos has reclaimed the world’s richest man title in 24 hours, thanks to the increase of the Amazon stock, TMZ reports.

The Amazon CEO lost his title to Microsoft boss, Bill Gates during after-hours trading on Thursday, according to Forbes, when the company’s shares plummeted 7 percent, dropping Bezos’ fortune to $103.9 billion.

Well, he’s back on top now and we guess he’s a very happy man right now.

According to Forbes, Jeff is now worth $109.9 billion, after the markets closed on Friday, moving him back ahead of Bill Gates and his $105.8 billion net worth.

Aside from the stock, Jeff Bezos’ drop to number 2 was attributed to his divorce with ex-wife MacKenzie, who received a huge amount of his wealth in July. MacKenzie’s net worth now stands at $32.7 billion, placing her among the top 20 in the world.

Jeff and MacKenzie split in January following what they called a trial separation, and Jeff is now seriously dating Lauren Sanchez.
