Well hellooo! Again!
One of our favorite movies Mrs. Doubtfire is getting a sequel! We can hardly believe it!
The same person who has been for the past three years - Carlos Slim!
According to the Forbes Rich List for 2012, the Mexican tycoon has once again held onto the number one position, with an estimated worth of $69 billion!
Meanwhile, Microsoft's Bill Gates came in second place with $61 billion, while Warren Buffet had the third spot with $44 billion!
Other notable money bags this year include the youngest billionaire to make the list, 'Spanx' founder Sarah Blakely, Facebook's Mark Zuckberg in the 35 spot with a net worth of $17.5 billion, and Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling dropping off the list as she's fallen below the $1 billion mark, due to Britain's high taxes, and her donation of $150 million to charity!
Wow! So selfless!
Can't fault her for that!
