Elon Musk denies romance rumors with wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin

What happened now? Elon Musk has denied reports that he had an affair with the wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin, which ended the couple’s friendship and led to Brin’s divorce from Nicole Shanahan. Tesla’s CEO says he’s still friends with his fellow billionaire and the report is based on “random third-party rumours.”

The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources, said Musk had an affair with Brin’s wife last fall. The incident reportedly took place in Miami during an Art Basel event in late December, shortly after Musk broke up with then-girlfriend Claire Boucher, better known by her stage name Grimes.

Sources say Brin and Shanahan were separated during the romance but were still living together due to family issues caused by the Covid-19 lockdown and problems with their three-year-old daughter. Brin named December 15, 2021 as the date for the couple’s divorce in the divorce papers.

The report also claims that Musk knelt before Brin at a party earlier this year and apologized for the fling while begging for forgiveness. While Brin has acknowledged his apology, he still doesn’t speak to Musk regularly.

Musk and Brin have been friends for many years. The world’s richest man regularly crashed at his fellow billionaire’s Silicon Valley home, and Brin helped Tesla in its fight during the 2008 financial crisis by handing over $500,000 to Musk.

In recent months, Brin has reportedly sold his personal investments in Musk’s company, though this has not been confirmed.

Musk tweeted a response to the report yesterday. “It’s completely pointless. Sergey and I are friends and last night we were at a party together! I saw Nicole only twice in three years, and both times surrounded by many other people. Nothing romantic. Responding to another tweet, Musk wrote: “I haven’t had sex in a long time (sigh). »

Musk rarely makes headlines these days. He is currently facing legal action brought by Twitter for not acquiring the platform. His personal life is often in the spotlight as well, including the revelation that he secretly fathered twins by a Neuralink top executive last year, bringing his total number of children to nine. He has long warned of the declining birth rate in the United States and its potentially devastating impact on civilization. “I mean I’m doing my part haha,” he recently tweeted.
