TESLA CEO Elon Musk was spotted out in public for first time since splitting up with his longterm girlfriend Grimes after the mother of one of his kids dubbed him “immature.”
Earlier this week, The SpaceX founder told Page Six that the pair are “semi-separated” but remain on good terms after a number of public spats, just three years after their Met Gala debut as a couple.

In The Sun’s exclusive pictures, the tech billionaire can be seen casually sipping a cold drink at a Private Airport in Los Angeles on Friday evening after news of their breakup broke.
He donned what appeared to be a leather jacket over a t-shirt and looked unfazed as he strolled out of the building after confirming the couple’s sudden split.
“We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms,” Elon told Page Six.
“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.
“She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room,” he went on – but since the birth of X Æ A-Xii last May, the couple has had a number of reported clashes, including one surrounding the name of their son.
When the singer shared the footage, one user asked her why she was dating a man “who is literally destroying the planet and humanity,” while another asked to confirm that Musk was not a “men’s rights activist.
“He’s not,” she replied. “Def he’s been very immature at points on Twitter but for ex the president of SpaceX is a woman, as is his right hand [person] at Neuralink etc.”
“SR-71, but yes,” Musk wrote, correcting his partner’s mistake and prompting her to hit back, reminding him that she had just given birth to their child.
“I am recovering from surgery and barely alive so may my typos b forgiven but, damnit,” she tweeted. “That was meant to be profound.”
‘GRIMES IS MAD AT ME’
Just four days before she went into labor, the SpaceX founder tweeted: “Grimes is mad at me” after he wrote that he was selling almost all of his physical possessions.
In another shock admission, Musk told the Irish Times that there was nothing much he could do with baby X Æ A-Xii as they are “just eating and pooping machines.”
“Grimes has a much bigger role than me right now,” he explained. “When the kid gets older, there will be more of a role for me.”
“I think just doing what I’ve done with my other kids. If I have a trip for Tesla to China, for example, I’ll bring the kids with me and we’ll go see the Great Wall, or we took the bullet train from Beijing to Xian and saw the Terracotta Warriors.”
‘TURN OFF YOUR PHONE’
Last July, the couple had a very public falling out when the Tesla magnate announced that “pronouns suck”.
Less than impressed by his bold social media statement, Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, replied: “I love you but please turn off ur phone or give me a dall [sic].
“I cannot support hate. Please stop this. I know this isn’t your heart.”
Although the artist quickly deleted the reply, Musk unfollowed his girlfriend the following day.
But apparently, the pair were able to work things out as he re-followed her just seven hours later.
On May 5, 2020, the pair announced the arrival of their little boy, Elon’s sixth child.
The pair initially named their newborn child X Æ A-12.
The name appeared to be partially inspired by one of the songs from 33-year-old Grimes’ last album – 4ÆM.
Unfortunately for the pair, the name was not in accordance with California state law, as the law prohibits Indo-Arabic numerals in names.
To comply with the law, they changed the name to X Æ A-Xii.
‘GRIMES IS FUNDED BY GRIMES’
They were most recently spotted at the 2021 Met Gala together, though Grimes walked the red carpet alone and Elon joined later on inside.
“I think having a baby was a big kind of like rebirth for me, like artistically,” Grimes told Vogue ahead of the gala, adding, “Like, it just like, I don’t know.”
In an interview in 2020, Grimes revealed she didn’t take any financial help from her then-boyfriend Elon.
She claimed she admired how he lived his life and put his money “into making the world better” to Business Insider.
She clarified that Elon does not fund her career and that she would feel guilt if he were to “divert funds from, like, Tesla to my stupid art project.”
The musician said: “Grimes is funded by Grimes. I can’t say the things I say and believe what I believe and then take money from my boyfriend.”
