Elon Musk and Grimes
Entrepreneur and musician have “half separated”
Elon Musk confirms that he and his partner Grimes have “half broken up”. His work is supposed to be to blame.
After about three years, Elon Musk (50) and Grimes (33) are apparently largely going their separate ways. The entrepreneur has that in conversation with “Page Six”, the gossip site of the New York Post, confirms. Musk, however, uses the phrase “semi-separated”.
“We still love each other”
“We’re half apart but we still love each other, see each other often and we get along well,” explained Musk. The 50-year-old cites his work for his companies Tesla and SpaceX as the reason for the “half separation”. He often has to travel internationally and stays primarily in Texas, while Grimes is in Los Angeles most of the time. But she is right now with him and their child is in another room.
In May 2018 it was first announced that Musk and the musician are together. In 2020 the two had a son together, whom they gave the unusual name X Æ A-Xii. In a video for Vogue, Grimes explained only recently that her child doesn’t call her “mom”. It feels strange to her to say that she is “mother”. “I don’t identify with that word,” said Grimes. She thinks her son might sense her dislike, so she calls her Claire. The Canadian musician’s real name is Claire Boucher.
