Elon Musk’s private life is as multifaceted as the entrepreneur’s many business ventures. After quitting Stanford after two days, the billionaire has never looked back. He made it out of tech ballpark when he launched Zip2 with his brother in the mid-1990s, and the siblings sold the company in 1999 for $307 million. Next came Bank X, which eventually became PayPal. By this point, Musk was so wealthy that he could now focus more on his true passions — cars, space, and tweeting.
Musk is known for causing a Twitter controversy or two. So much so, in 2022, Musk decided to buy Twitter. But he also loves rap music. In 2019, Musk launched a record label and released “RIP Harambe,” which laments the controversial and infamous killing of the gorilla, accompanied by a startlingly strange video. In 2020, he released Don’t Doubt Ur Vibe, with a video so phallic it would have left Sigmund Freud speechless. The jury was on the job – don’t give up the day job.
But Musk’s other full-time passion? Women. His many relationships include two ex-wives, Amber Heard, Grimes and Natasha Bassett. Grimes’ relationship with Musk is fluid; They regularly break up and reconcile. In May 2020, Grimes gave birth to their son, X Æ A-Xii, and in December 2021, they welcomed a daughter, Exa Dark Sideræl, as a surrogate. It seems the only thing you can expect from the Space-X boss these days is the unexpected. And guess what? Elon Musk’s personal life just took another unexpected turn.
Elon Musk is single-handedly striving to reverse the US fertility slump
Elon Musk pinned a chart depicting the US “fertility collapse” to the top of his Twitter feed. “The birth rate in the US has been below the minimum sustainable level for about 50 years,” he commented. However, Musk appears to be single-handedly striving to reverse the situation. Insider reports that he and a top executive at the company, Shivon Zilis, secretly welcomed twins last year. In April, the couple applied to have the babies’ last names changed to their father’s. The twins arrived with Grimes just weeks before Musk’s daughter.
While it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of how many children Musk has, Rolling Stone noted that nine descendants were listed in court records.
Musk has struggled with loneliness his entire life. “There’s one thing I said when I was a kid,” he told Rolling Stone. “‘I never want to be alone.’ I would say that. I don’t want to be alone.” Unfortunately, the productive parent now has one less child to keep them company. TMZ obtained documents filed by Musk’s 18-year-old transgender daughter. Her birth name was Xavier Musk but she asked to change it to Vivian Jenna Wilson. “Gender identity and the fact that I no longer want to live with or be related to my biological father in any way,” Wilson wrote as the reason for the name change. Now we just can’t help but wonder what Wilson thinks of her new half-siblings.
