As a reference point, Snoop Dogg or “Snoop Lion,” as he likes to now be called, is worth a roaring $120M, while fellow rapper Jay Z is worth a reported $500 million. Combine that with what Beyonce has stashed away, $300 million, and collectively you’ve got a pretty penny! But that’s peanuts compared to what the world’s 50 richest people have in their bank accounts.. Matter of fact, the LAST guy on this list, Francois Pinault, a French luxury goods mogul, has a net worth of $17.3 billion – with a “B” – About 16 billion more than Snoop and Jay Z and Beyonce combined.. By the way, the second guy on this list is none other than Russian President, Vladimir Putin, who is worth a staggering $70 billion.. Compare that to President Barack Obama who is worth a paltry $12 million..abc_wn_putin_nt_110607_ssh
