A lonely Japanese billionaire is searching for a “life partner” who can accompany him on his upcoming trip to the moon.
Yusaku Maezawa, the billionaire owner of online fashion business Zozotown with a net worth of approximately $2 billion, according to Forbes, famously paid his way to become the first private passenger to visit the moon with Elon Musk’s aerospace company SpaceX.
Maezawa successfully secured the most ever retweets for his Twitter message on January 5, 2020 offering one million yen (approx US$9300) each to 100 randomly selected people who retweeted the message and followed him. More than four million people reportedly retweeted his tweet and followed him.
He is now holding another contest on Twitter. This time the lonely billionaire is hoping to find a “life partner.”
“I want to find a ‘life partner,'” he tweeted. “With that future partner of mine, I want to shout our love and world peace from outer space.”
