Elon Musk is “semi-separated” with his partner, Canadian singer Grimes, reports the BBC. As the founder and boss of SpaceX explains, their professional duties mean that they have to spend most of their time away from each other. The couple have a child, and Musk also has five children from one of their previous relationships.
Elon Musk reported a “half-separation” in an interview with Page Six, the BBC writes. He said that while “they still love each other, see each other a lot, and are on great terms,” their careers have seen them spend a lot of time away from each other. Grimes did not comment on these reports, the BBC notes.
The couple started dating in 2018. Their first child was born in May last year. Musk told Page Six that he and Grimes intend to continue raising a son named X Æ A-Xii together.
“My work for SpaceX and Tesla requires me to either spend most of my time in Texas or travel overseas, and she mainly works in Los Angeles,” Musk said in an interview, explaining where their relationship has reached.
According to the BBC, the couple was last seen together at the Met Gala. The “Fashion Oscars” event was held on September 13 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Elon Musk divorced three times
Before he began dating Grimes, Elon Musk was married to Canadian writer Justine Wilson, with whom he has five sons: the 17-year-old twins Griffin and Xavier, and two years younger triplets: Damian, Saxon and Kai.
He has also twice married the British actress Talulah Riley known from the series “Westworld”. They got married for the first time in 2010, but divorced two years later. In 2013, they got married again. The second time their marriage lasted three years.
