Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is well known for his extreme wealth and his fun hobbies, like throwing dwarves. But he takes the former very seriously. So much so that he's suing Forbes for libel after the magazine reported his worth at $20 billion, ranking him 29th on its annual list of the world's billionaires. Alwaleed says he's worth at least $9.6 billion more.

He has filed a defamation claim against Forbes in a high court in London, according to the Guardian.
