Elon Musk is so wealthy, the UN has claimed that just a fraction of his money could solve world hunger. So just how wealthy is he?
Elon Musk is the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, founder of The Boring Company; and co-founder of Neuralink and OpenAI, just to name some of his best-known business ventures.
In November 2021, a UN official said just two-per-cent of his money could help solve the world hunger problems. The tech billionaire has since responded and said he'll sell some of his Tesla shares if the UN could back their claim.
Now, Jake Paul has pledged to donate $10 million to end world hunger if Elon Musk gives his $6 billion.
