Elon Musk is once again in the headlines but for all the wrong reasons. The billionaire was recently alleged of having an affair with Google founder Sergey Brin’s wife. It turns out there is more to the story than previously reported.

According to Wall Street Journal, the Tesla CEO had a brief affair with Sergey Brin’s wife last fall. This resulted in Google’s co-founder filing for divorce earlier this year which also destroyed the tech billionaires’ long relationship.

The affair is said to have begun a month after Musk had twins with a former executive from one of his companies, and the same month that he had a daughter through surrogacy with his ex-girlfriend Grimes.

The outlet noted, that Elon Musk fell to one knee in front of Brin and sincerely apologized for the wrongdoing, pleading for forgiveness. This incident occurred at a party the two attended earlier this year.

In 2008, at the height of the financial crisis, Sergey invested $500,000 in Tesla. At that time Musk’s company was struggling to increase production. Having said that, the tensions between the two have grown a lot to the point Brin has ordered his financial advisers to sell his personal investments in Mr. Musk’s companies.

Since the start of this year, Elon Musk has been surrounded by controversies. Most recently it came to light that he secretly fathered twins for a former Neuralink executive. He is also being sued by Twitter for backing out of the deal to purchase the platform. It seems Mr. Musk will have to sort out each problem at once.
