Tesla Chief Executive Officer and the world’s richest man Elon Musk’s net worth dropped below $200 billion on Tuesday after he sold $3.95 billion worth of Tesla shares, according to US regulatory filings.

Musk’s fortune slipped below the $200 billion mark just days after he completed his purchase of Twitter for $44 billion.

Investors also dumped Tesla shares on fears that the top executive and largest shareholder of the world’s most valuable electric-vehicle maker is more preoccupied with Twitter.

Between Friday and Tuesday, Musk himself unloaded 19.5 million shares.

According to Forbes, Musk now has a net worth of $194.8 billion, a big part of that coming from his nearly 15% stake in Tesla, which has a market value of $622 billion.
