(NYDAILYNEWS) — Talk about fuzzy math.
Crotchety Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a Saudi Arabian worth an estimated $20 billion by Forbes, has cut ties with the financial magazine after he came in at 26th on the latest “Billionaires” list. The crabby prince contends he’s worth $29.6 billion and should be in the top 10, the magazine reported.
So upset is Prince Alwaleed by the perceived slight, he wants nothing more to do with Forbes and has asked the magazine to remove him from the list.
“We have worked very openly with the Forbes team over the years and have on multiple occasions pointed out problems with their methodology that need correction,” read a statement from the Kingdom Holding Company, which the prince owns. “However, after several years of our efforts to correct mistakes falling on deaf ears, we have decided that Forbes has no intention of improving the accuracy of their valuation of our holdings and we have made the decision to move on.”
