- Jeff Bezos, the world's richest man, has been spending his wealth on other interests aside from space travel
- Reports gathered that his recent house hunting and condos purchase reflects his love for real estate
- Sometime in 2019, the Amazon boss also bought artworks that are worth millions of dollars
The world’s richest person, Jeff Bezos, seems to have picked interest in things to spend his money on aside space travel.
About two years ago, the Amazon CEO said that he would only be putting his wealth into space travel or nothing else, QZ reports.
In the latest report by the same media, below are the new things Bezos is passionate about:
The Amazon boss and his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez reportedly went hunting for houses in Bel Air and Beverly Hills as they considered a 40,000 square feet property at the cost of $225 million (N81,675,000,000). In 2019, he also got three condos in Manhattan for $80 million (N29,040,000,000).
In November 2019, Quartz also reports that the billionaire bought Hurting the Word Radio #2 by Ed Ruscha at Christie’s for $52.5 million (N19,057,500,000) and Vignette 19 by Kerry James Marshall at Sotheby’s for $18.5 million (N6,715,500,000).
There are projections the richest man could spend more on those new interests with the stock he liquefied recently.
In 2018, he spent $2 billion (N726,000,000,000), 1.3% of his net worth, on his foundations. He is, however, not among the billionaires that have signed up for the Giving Pledge, a commitment to give a larger part of one’s wealth to charity.
