Elon Musk is planning to make a change in his personal life amid a cheating scandal

Elon Musk has been in the middle of some serious drama lately, and it surprisingly has nothing to do with Twitter. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Musk had a short-lived affair in December 2021 with Nicole Shanahan, the now-estranged wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Brin was longtime friends with Musk and even gave him $500,000 to go towards Tesla in 2008 when the stock market crashed. However, following the rumor affair, the WSJ reported that there appeared to be serious tensions between the business owners.

in one tweetMusk recently denied the cheating rumors and insisted he is still friends with Brin. He also told the New York Post, “Nicole and Sergey’s divorce has absolutely nothing to do with me … I’ve spoken to both Sergey and Nicole about it and they say the story isn’t theirs [it] Must be a broken phone case two or three shifts away.”

According to People, Brin filed for divorce from Shanahan in January, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split. Though Musk insisted he didn’t come between the couple, both Shanahan and Brin have yet to publicly deny the allegation. Now, Musk revealed that he’s trying to put the rumors behind him and focus on more important issues.

Elon Musk puts his energy into other things

Elon Musk insists he hasn’t had an affair with Sergey Brin’s wife and is fed up with the negative attention he’s getting online. After facing intense criticism for his rumored actions on Twitter, the Tesla mogul decided to respond on the platform and didn’t hold back on how he plans to proceed.

On July 25th he tweeted“The amount of attention on me has gone supernova, which sucks super.” He added, “Will do my best to focus on doing useful things for civilization, with my head down.” Musk received supporting answers, such as a person saying, “The best thing you can honestly do is keep killing it at Tesla.” His friend Jeffrey Skoll also shared one tweet in support of Musk, insisting that “he deserves to be appreciated.”
