Elon Musk is denying that he had an affair with the wife of old friend Sergey Brin, one of Google’s co-founders. But that might not be enough to salvage their friendship, The Verge reports.
Elon Musk and Nicole Shanahan allegedly had an affair at an Art Basel event in Miami. The dalliance supposedly occurred after Musk and his former girlfriend Grimes broke up. Brin and Shanahan were apparently separated but still living together when the alleged liaison happened, per The Verge.
Eccentric billionaire Musk hit back at the claims on Twitter on Sunday.
“This is total bs,” he said in the tweet. “Sergey and I are friends and were at a party together last night! I’ve only seen Nicole twice in three years, both times with many other people around. Nothing romantic.”
Elon Musk’s History Of Romance
Musk and long-time partner Grimes called it quits back in September 2021. They have one son together. They secretly welcomed a second child – a daughter – via surrogate in December 2021.
Two months ago, new photos of Musk with his new girlfriend, 27-year-old Australian actress Natasha Bassett, went viral.
The couple allegedly went to the Cheval Blanc hotel in St-Barth Isle de France. Photographs show the couple enjoying a quiet lunch at Saint-Tropez, a coastal town in France popular among the rich.
According to DNAIndia.com, the couple started dating exclusively earlier this year.
UK’s Daily Mail reported that Bassett has fallen for Musk’s brains and “not his bank balance.”
Musk was married twice to British actress Talulah Riley and once to author Justine Musk. Elon and Justine have five children together.
He also dated Amber Heard for some period of time before splitting. While the timeline is a little fuzzy, many assume they were together for about a year between 2016 to 2017, which would be following his split from Riley and hers from Johnny Depp.
