Amazon and Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos is no longer the richest man in the world -- and not just because he's invested in spending more time off the planet.

His net worth tumbled $13.9 billion in one day when Amazon's stock price fell 7% last week after the company reported second-quarter growth that was below forecasts.

Arnault oversees luxury goods conglomerate LVMH, which includes Louis Vuitton, Sephora, Tiffany & Co., and Moët & Chandon.

As of Monday, according to MarketWatch, Arnault's net worth was priced at $195.8 billion and Bezos' was at $192.6 billion.

Notably, Bezos broke records last year when he became the first person to ever be worth $200 billion.

LVMH shares fell on Friday, too, causing Arnault to lose $2.9 billion, but he still came out on top of Bezos.
