Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, put on a tense performance on Thursday night, as he was seen publicly for the first time since his ex-partner Grimes announced earlier in the day that they had secretly welcomed a second child via surrogate, before parting ways for the second time.
Musk arrived at his SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California, just hours after his ex-girlfriend Grimes announced their split in a tweet on March 10. In the latest photographs, which you can see here via DailyMail, the SpaceX founder was dressed extremely casually as he arrived at the site in a graphic t-shirt and a dark pair of trousers. Elon appeared to be moving swiftly as he walked from his car to the building.
Elon’s new photographs surfaced only hours after Vanity Fair published a behind-the-scenes piece on Grimes. The singer, whose real name is Claire Boucher, discussed their relationship status in the piece, referring to him as her “boyfriend” at the time of the interview, but later clarified their relationship status in a tweet after the story was released.
“Me and E have broken up again since the writing of this article haha. But he’s my best friend and the love of my life, and my life and art are forever dedicated to The Mission now.”
Grimes also told the outlet:
“I would probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluid. We live in separate houses. We’re best friends. We see each other all the time. We just have our own thing going on, and I don’t expect other people to understand it.”
Apart from revealing her relationship status with Elon, Grimes also disclosed that the couple had had their second kid via surrogate in December 2021. In May 2020, the couple welcomed their son X Æ A-Xii, whom they call X, and their daughter Y, whom they call Y, but whose full name is Exa Dark Sideræl Musk.
