The subject of Elon Musk’s dating past has come up once more. In November 2021, the wealthy co-founder of Tesla allegedly gave birth to twins with Shivon Zilis, one of his top Neuralink staffers, only one month before delivering a kid with on-again, off-again lover Grimes.
But Zilis and Grimes weren’t Musk’s first interest in a woman. See his romances that have made news below.
The computer whiz’s first wife, Justine Musk, formerly Justine Wilson, was married to Musk in 2000. Nevada, their first son, was born in 2002, but at 10 weeks old, he passed away from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
A total of five children were born to the couple: twins Griffin and Vivian in 2004 and triplets Kai, Saxon, and Damian in 2006.
Elon and Justine divorced in 2008, and Justine revealed to Marie Claire in 2010 that Elon viewed her as a “starter wife.”
Six weeks after Musk filed for divorce from Justine, actress Talulah Riley became engaged to him. She later wed the businessman in 2010.
When they originally split at Elon’s request in 2014, the pair hit a tough stretch. 18 months after the couple’s reconciliation and remarriage, Riley filed for divorce.
After Amber Heard’s divorce from Johnny Depp, the creator of SpaceX moved on to her and began seeing her in late 2016.
Due to their busy schedules, she and Musk ended their relationship after just one year.
The separation was painful for Musk, he said, adding that he was “really in love, and it hurt bad,” in a November 2017 interview with Rolling Stone.
They first connected online thanks to a joke about AI that Musk had intended to tweet but saw that Grimes had already posted.
Breakup rumors started to circulate in the autumn of 2018, when Musk and Grimes unfollowed one another on Twitter after rapper Azealia Banks said that she had been waiting for Grimes to arrive visit the billionaire’s Los Angeles estate so they could collaborate on music.
The rapper went on a days-long tirade in which she labeled Musk a “trash ass beta male pig,” Grimes a “dirty-sneaker-inbred-out of the woods-Pabst beer p—y methhead-junkie,” and the duo intended to have a threesome with her.
In a March 2019 interview with WSJ. Magazine, Grimes, however, affirmed that she and the co-founder of PayPal were still dating.
The singer of “Flesh Without Blood” made her pregnancy public in January 2020 by sharing a photo of her growing baby bulge on Instagram.
In May 2020, Grimes and Elon had baby X A-12. While the singer was recuperating after giving birth, the couple debated the pronunciation of the name on Twitter.
