Elon Musk Says He and Grimes Are ‘Semi-Separated’ Which Sounds Like the First Billionaire to Get Dumped

Part of billionaires never having to hear the word “no”, is also never having to hear the word “dumped”. Elon Musk, a man with enough money to resurrect Jesus, can always buy the dictionary and scrub the word dumped from existence if things get too real. Such are the conclusions we jump to now that Musk and girlfriend Grimes are going through a break-up semi-separation.

It was just last year that the odd couple welcomed their first baby to the world. But it appears as though parenting, along with a move to a small prefab home in Texas, has put a strain on the relationship.

“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,” Musk commented. “She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room.”

Any man who utters the words “Baby X is in the adjacent room” has got to be a hard man to live with. Nonetheless, Grimes admitted the two are, in fact, still living together in love and harmony.

If Musk is correct in his assertion that whatever’s going on with them is not a breakup but a semi-separation, then it wouldn’t be the first time the billionaire has successfully rekindled the dying embers of love. In 2012 he divorced Westworld actress Tallulah Riley only to marry her again the following year.

Musk has helped reinvent digital payment systems, space exploration, and the automotive industry. If anyone can revamp the boring old breakup model, it’s him.
