This is actually not the best of times for Celebrity blogger, Linda Ikeji, as report says the #IamSelfMade blogger has been slammed with a tax bill of N75million by the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).

According to The Capital, a source in the FIRS was quoted to have revealed that the celebrity blogger had for some time, been evading tax payment.

The media outlet reports that the blogger has now been mandated by the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) to pay the money into the agency’s coffers.

Linda Ikeji was also reported to have out-rightly denied ownership of her luxurious Banana Island mansion when quizzed by the FIRS authorities.

The famous blogger purchased the choice property in October 2015 and revealed back then that it was worth well over N500m.

The revenue agency has purportedly initiated measures to prosecute her in a court of law if she refuses to pay the N75m.

Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, has broken his record to become the wealthiest person alive, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Bezos now has a fortune of US$171.6 billion, surpassing his previous high of $167.7 billion.

His previous record was set in 2018, before his divorce from wife Mackenzie Bezos.

The 56-year-old American internet entrepreneur has gained approximately $56.7 billion this year alone.

Much of Bezo’s wealth comes from Amazon, with the CEO owning roughly 57 million shares of the company.

Following Bezos on Bloomberg’s ranking are Bill Gates (with a net worth of $115 billion), Bernard Arnault ($93 billion), and Mark Zuckerberg ($91.2 billion).
