Tesla and Space X CEO Elon Musk has been in the limelight for quite a long time now. The billionaire’s turbulent personal life has attracted harsh and unfair opinions on different social media platforms — with Twitter and Instagram at the forefront. But does Musk care?
Barely a decade ago, Elon said he would “rather stick a fork in my hand than write about my personal life.” Surprisingly, in 2017 he chose to candidly open up about topics he’s not known to discuss in public. Elon is said to have dated quite some Hollywood stars. He has five sons and has been through two divorces already.
Today reports have it that Elon has been dating a top Hollywood musician and celebrity. Besides, the couple welcomed their first baby together in mid-2020. But, who is the lucky girl enjoying Elon Musk’s net worth?
Read on to find out who is Musk’s anonymous girlfriend and how the two met.
Musk and Grimes
Elon Musk has been dating the top musician and record producer Grimes. The couple was first spotted together at the annual Met Gala in May 2018.
Many curious fans were left wondering how two celebrities from entirely different worlds met. We will get to that in a few, though.
First up, who is Grimes?
Canadian Pop Star
Claire Elise Boucher was born on March 17, 1988. She hails from Canada and goes by the stage name Grimes, widely known among her fans. Grimes is a musician, songwriter, and record producer.
The Canadian singer grew up in Vancouver before venturing into music independently late in the 2000s. What’s more? She hit the world stage in 2010 and boasts of five studio albums, with a Juno Award for Electronic Album of the Year.
Also, Grimes has in the pasta been in the headlines for her outspoken advocacy for female artists in the music industry. It is fair to say Grimes is loved and praised alike due to her peculiar features and experimental music (so hard to identify the musician’s genre).
How did Grimes and Musk meet?
Thanks to Twitter, we’d say. Business Insider reports that Elon had planned on tweeting about artificial intelligence — the “Rococo Basilisk” thing, to be precise. To his surprise, Musk realized that Grimes had joked about the “Rococo” thing earlier in her “Flesh Without Blood” music video.
The two are reported to have started tweeting since then. How Musk and Grimes managed to date quietly before stepping out in public together is something we would all love to know.
Moreover, Elon Musk has in the past confessed that he loves Grimes. The controversial business leader revealed that he adores his girlfriend’s “hyperintense work ethic and wild fae artistic creativity.”
Many people would have expected Musk and Grimes’ relationship to end in turmoil — just like the billionaire’s previous relationships. However, it is so fortunate that the couple has stood against all odds to remain steady and robust.
Grimes had been pregnant long before the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Her Instagram posts thrilled her fans worldwide, especially when she revealed that she was expecting Elon Musk’s child.
The couple later welcomed their first child together in May 2020.
