Tesla founder Elon Musk is considered the richest person in the world. But life with him is anything but luxurious, according to Grimes, his on-and-off partner. “The guy doesn’t live like a billionaire,” he told Vanity Fair magazine. In contrast, Musk sometimes lives “below the poverty line.”
Speaking to Vanity Fair, the musician recalled how they once found a hole in his mattress when they lived in Los Angeles. He “didn’t even want to buy a new mattress,” he told the magazine. His suggestion: Next time, Grimes should bring his own mattress.
Ex-partner Grimes often felt “caught between worlds” in her relationship with Musk
It wasn’t just broken mattresses that plagued Grimes during her relationship with the billionaire. The singer often felt caught “between two worlds” in society. “When people say I’m a class traitor, that’s not a false statement,” she told the magazine. “Originally I was on the left and I became a capitalist democrat. A lot of people are understandably upset.”
At one point, Musk’s ex-partner Grimes got tired of life as a capitalist democrat and wondered, “Can’t we just live in a regular $40,000 unattended house?” Where the neighbors are filming us, there’s no security, and I’m eating peanut butter for eight days straight?
It’s unclear if Musk wanted to grant Grimes’ wish, but in May 2020 he announced on Twitter that he would be selling all his belongings and would “have no home of his own” in the future. He is believed to have rented a $50,000 prefab from his own company, SpaceX.
Musk and Grimes are said to have secretly welcomed a second child.
In the same interview, Grimes revealed that she and Musk secretly had a second child together, a girl she calls “Y” whose full name is Exa Dark Sideræl. The couple’s eldest son, X Æ A-Xii, pronounced “X,” was born in May 2020. He was born via surrogate, according to Grimes, and is Musk’s seventh child. Musk told Page Six in September that he and Grimes had split after three years of dating. The billionaire was recently seen with Australian actress Natasha Bassett.
