Elon Musk is the richest man on the planet: according to Forbes, the fortune of the founder of “Tesla” and “Space X” exceeds 268 billion dollars. Not surprisingly, everyone believes that the IT mogul is bathed in gold. Mansions furnished with luxurious furniture, estates with garden and pool – Musk can afford everything. But… doesn’t do that. A former friend of the businessman, Canadian singer Grimes, who bore him two children, said that Elon is satisfied with a rather modest lifestyle, which she called “poor.”
Grimes and Musk have been together since 2018 and announced their separation last September. The actress admitted that in Los Angeles they lived in a very poor house by the standards of this city worth 40 thousand dollars (5 million 320 thousand rubles). For comparison, the average price of decent real estate in the “city of angels” is 900 thousand dollars.
Musk turned out to be quite a pushy roommate. For example, he refused to buy a new mattress when a hole was found in the old one. Instead, the billionaire suggested Grimes bring a mattress from her house and sleep on it. And the businessman, according to the singer, saved on food.
– It got to the point that I told him: maybe we will not live in this completely unsafe house for 40 thousand dollars? Where neighbors like us are filmed, no security, and I have to eat peanut butter for the eighth day in a row? said Grimes in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine.

It seems that Ilona really does not care where he lives and what he sleeps on. Back in May 2020, Musk wrote on Twitter that he was going to sell all his property and would not have his own home, as he is fully focused on his mission to fly to Mars. The billionaire lives in Texas, where he moved from California with Tesla headquarters. Austin Elon decided to move from Los Angeles to the capital of Texas after he came into confrontation with the California authorities due to restrictions on the coronavirus. In addition, next to Austin is the spaceport of his second company “Space X”.
The billionaire did not acquire a luxurious mansion in Texas. Musk lives in a 37-square-meter prefabricated house that he rents from Space X. The cost of such a house is 50 thousand dollars (6 million 650 thousand rubles), and it can be assembled in a day as a designer of ready-made concrete panels. The businessman assures that he is quite satisfied with such a modest home.
– My place of residence is a $ 50,000 house in Boca Chica (the town where the spaceport is located – Ed.), Which I rent from SpaceX. He is great, – said the businessman on Twitter.

However, the billionaire did not always huddle in such modest conditions. Last year, Musk sold his last mansion in Silicon Valley, California. The property went for $ 32 million. This is not even a house, but a whole estate with a centuries-old history. It was founded in 1912 by the French Count de Guigne, who moved from Europe to America after marriage. An aristocrat built a large European-style villa on a huge plot of land with a lake. Musk bought the estate in 2017 for $ 23 million.
If with the real estate of the billionaire now everything is modest and simple, then with personal life, on the contrary, it is difficult and confusing. Grimes, 33, and Musk, 50, have lived together for three years. The pop singer gave birth to the founder of “SpaceX” a son, whom they called by the complex name X Æ A-Xii. After the separation of his parents, the one-and-a-half-year-old child remained living with his mother. Elon assured reporters that he and Grimes remained on good terms and still see each other often. And it really is. Moreover, in the same interview with “Vanity Fair”, the actress said that she and Ilona recently became parents for the second time – they had a daughter. The baby was carried by a surrogate mother. Unlike her brother, the girl received a very short name – Y.

For a businessman this is the seventh child, for Grimes – the second. It became known by chance that their daughter was born. The girl was born in late 2021, but the singer and IT mogul carefully hid the news. During the interview, which took place in the house of the artist, the journalist heard a child crying behind the wall, and Grimes had to admit everything.
Maska’s daughter’s full name is: Exa Dark Sideral. Grimes explained that the girl received the name Exa in honor of the unit of measurement exaflops – the quintillion calculations with a floating point per second. Dark is the English word for “dark”. It is associated with the unknown and dark matter. And Saidiriel is an elven spelling of the word sidereal, associated with stellar time. Older brother Y is also usually abbreviated by his parents – Little X (Little X). Grimes said that after the birth of his sister, the boy lived with his father.
Apparently, the singer and billionaire decided to have a second child before the breakup. Then the couple’s relationship deteriorated, and they broke up, despite the upcoming addition to the family. Elon said he and Grimes broke up because of his job.
“We broke up, but we still love each other, we see each other often and have a wonderful relationship,” the businessman said last September. – My work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to live in Texas and travel a lot abroad. And her work is concentrated in Los Angeles. By the way, she’s next to me now, and baby X is in the next room.
Another girl of the businessman was 27-year-old Australian actress Natasha Bassett.

The birth of a daughter did not prevent Mask from immersing himself in a new relationship. Another girl of the businessman was 27-year-old Australian actress Natasha Bassett. They have been together for several months. Before Grimes, Musk met Hollywood star Amber Heard, the ex-wife of actor Johnny Depp.
Recall that Elon Musk was married twice. He and his first wife, Justina, studied at a university in Canada. They married in 2000, and the family had five sons one after the other. And then he was twisted by secular life, and since then Elon has chosen artists as his companions.

In September 2008, Elon and Justin announced their divorce – Musk cheated on his wife with British actress Tallulah Riley. Elon and Tallulah were married in 2010. And in 2012 they divorced, but a year later they got married again. In March 2016, their final divorce took place – then Musk was already secretly dating actress Amber Heard.
