For many, many years, men have always been oppotuned to occupy most, if not all of the positions of world’s top 10 richest people but not anymore. Today, there is a woman on the list of the top ten richest people in the world and she occupies the 9th position with a net worth of 54.5 billion USD. Yes, you read that right.
Her name is Alice Louise Walton. Alice was born on the 7th October 1949 which makes her a septuagenarian. She was born in Newport, Arkansas, USA. Being the only daughter of Sam and Helen Walton, she is an heiress to the fortune of Walmart Inc., an American multinational retail corporation that operates a chain of hypermarkets, discount department stores, and grocery stores and world’s largest company by revenue.
Walton has no children of her own, even after being married to a prominent Louisiana investment banker in 1974 at age 24. The marriage ended 2 and a half years later and up until now, she is still single and unbothered.
Alice Walton does not just have a seat at top ten of the richest people in the world, she is also the wealthiest woman alive, since L’Oréal heiress Liliane Bettencourt died in September 2017 aged 94.
She owns luxury homes in Texas and New York, and spends much of her money on horses and artwork. She has focused on curating art, rather than working for Walmart like her siblings, Rob and Jim Walton. In 2011 she founded the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the museum offers free public admission.
In many interviews, Alice had always made it known that she has no intention of getting into a relationship (marriage) or having a child. Therefore, she has no kids to inherit her enormous wealth when she passes on.
