As the richest billionaire in the world, Elon Musk also has an extremely complicated private life and love life.
Recently, the world’s media has reported that the world’s richest billionaire, Elon Musk, continues to be entangled in a love scandal. Accordingly, the Tesla boss was accused of having an affair with Nicole Shanahan – formerly the wife of billionaire Sergey Brin. 2 billionaires used to be close friends, but now do not talk to each other.
Musk is being accused of interfering in the marriage of his best friend Sergey Brin.
Currently, Elon Musk is still denying all related allegations and thinks it is a rumor.
However, even before the rumors with Nicole, Musk was famous for an extremely messy love history. The Tesla boss once confided that he had many heartaches from his childhood, fear of loneliness and could not bear to sleep alone – the cause of a series of complicated and broken relationships later.

The first woman the world knew to go hand in hand with Musk was Justine Wilson. Musk met his first wife, Justine Wilson at Queen’s University, Canada. The two fell in love and got married in 2000.
The two have 6 children together (the first child died at a young age, so only 5 are still alive) and divorced in 2008, after much controversy.
The tumultuous divorce also led to “memoirs” and interviews that revealed many of Musk’s bad habits, such as being patriarchal, treating his wife as a subordinate. The culmination of the divorce was when Wilson reminded her husband that she was his wife, not an employee, to which Musk simply replied, “If you were my employee, I would have fired you.”
Musk and Wilson split in 2008.
Shortly after divorcing his first wife, in the same 2008 Musk began dating British actress Talulah Riley. The two got married in 2010 after 2 years of dating. In 2012, they divorced for the first time and Riley left with a sum of $ 16 million.
This “unstable” couple consumed a lot of media coverage just because there were 2 marriages and 2 divorces, including a “nearly” breakup.
In the summer of 2013, the couple remarried. But then, in December 2014, Riley continued to file for a second divorce and then quickly withdrew.
Finally, in March 2016, Riley asked for a third divorce, and the couple ended that word, without any children together.
However, this relationship later became less turbulent when the two still praised each other and considered each other close friends. As for Riley, she said the two still see each other often and take care of each other.
After Riley, Musk continued to fall in love with actress Amber Heard and had a relationship with her for many months in late 2016 and early 2017. It is reported that he pursued Heard for many years.
According to Johnny Depp, Amber Heard’s husband from 2015 to 2017, the couple had an affair behind his back. A CCTV clip captures the love scene between Musk and Heard in the main elevator of Depp’s apartment. The actor also accused the two of secretly “cuckolding” even just a month after Heard married him.
Musk was once accused of interfering in Johnny Depp’s marriage to Amber Heard.
After Depp and Heard broke up, the couple made their relationship public but soon broke up.
The Tesla boss’s next love interest was female singer Grimes, starting in mid-2018, according to a source, the two met online, when Musk discovered that an AI joke he was about to tweet had already happened. The same idea as Grimes and was posted by her earlier.
By September 2021, the couple confirmed their separate ways. However, just two months later, Musk’s senior female director, Shivon Zilis, filed a lawsuit in a Texas state court to request that the two children have the last name of Elon Musk and the middle name after the mother’s last name. That means Musk had been in a relationship with Ms. Zilis for at least a year before that.
The news about Ms. Shivon Zilis only surfaced earlier this month and had not yet cooled, when the affair with Nicole Shanahan was revealed. According to US media, Musk even had to kneel to apologize to Brin, after being said to be a contributing factor to the couple’s divorce.
