Elon Musk and Grimes have split up. The news comes from a recent talk with Page Six by the SpaceX founder, Musk himself. The two share one child together, X Æ A-Xii Musk, who had been born in May 2020.
"We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms," Musk said to Page Six. "It's mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She's staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room."
Grimes and Musk made headlines when they revealed their child's name, the "Violence" musician telling Vogue while getting ready for the Met Gala that "having a baby was a big kind of rebirth for me, like artistically." She walked the red carpet at this year's Met Gala alone, however was joined by Musk once she made her way inside. The two were also spotted walking around New York City together the next morning.
Grimes also made an appearance on Musk's Saturday Night Live episode last May, when Musk acted as the show's host. The singer acted as Princess Peach in a skit that saw Musk playing Wario in a Mario-themed courtroom.
The two first began dating in 2018, when they met over a Twitter exchange about the thought experiment known as Roko's Basilisk. Musk had wanted to make a joke about the thought experiment, only to discover that Grimes had beat him to the punch three years earlier. He reached out to the musician, and the rest is history.
