Mega Billionaire with an estimated net worth of $251 billion, Elon Musk, who sits at the apex of the world’s richest list has sent a shock wave across the globe with the revelation that he currently doesn’t own his own home.
The richest man also doesn’t own yachts or take vacations that accompany the lifestyle of billionaires, however, he owns a jet to save time on his travels.
Elon Musk was responding to comment regarding how many people criticize billionaires for their wealth, he said crashes on friends’ couches.
“I don’t even own a place right now, I’m literally staying at friends’ places,” Elon Musk said in a video interview with Chris Anderson, head of conference organizers TED, published Monday.
“If I travel to the Bay Area, which is where most of Tesla’s engineering is, I basically rotate through friends’ spare bedrooms,” Musk added.
“For sure, it would be very problematic if I was spending billions of dollars a year in personal consumption, but that is not the case,” Musk told Anderson, adding that he doesn’t own a yacht or really take vacations.
“It’s not as though my personal consumption is high. I mean, the one exception is the plane, but if I don’t use the plane then I have less hours to work,” he said.
