The couple began dating in 2018 and share 1-year-old son X Æ A-Xii.
Elon Musk and Grimes have parted ways. On Thursday, the 50-year-old Tesla CEO confirmed to PageSix that he and the 33-year-old singer have split after three years together, telling the outlet that they "still love each other."
"We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms", said Musk, who shares 1-year-old son X Æ A-Xii with Grimes.
"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", the entrepeneur explained. "She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room."
The former couple began dating in 2018, after meeting through Twitter when discovering that they both came up with the same pun on rococo and the thought experiment Roko’s basilisk. They made their relationship public later that year when they attended the Met Gala together.
The pair welcomed their son, Grimes' first and Musk's sixth, on May 4, 2020.
Musk was previously married to author Justine Wilson from 2000 to 2008. The pair share five sons: 17-year-old twins Griffin and Xavier, as well as 15-year-old triplets Damian, Saxon, and Kai.
The SpaceX founder later married actress Talulah Riley in 2010, though they divorced in 2010. The two remarried in 2013 before divorcing for the second time in 2016. After his split from Riley, Musk dated Amber Heard for several months in 2017.
In a recent interview with Vogue while chronicling her 2021 Met Gala prep, Grimes —whose real name is Claire Boucher— stated that welcoming her first child with Musk opened her up to a previously unknown world of creativity, telling the outlet: "I think having a baby was a big kind of like rebirth for me, like artistically."
