Why did Elon Musk dump musician Grimes after 3 years?
Elon Musk & Grimes have called it quits, unfortunately. They were an easy couple to root for during their run together. After three years together, it’s clear they realized things just weren’t going to work out anymore.
The two, who share a pretty massive age gap of seventeen years, also share a baby boy together. Now that they’re no longer together, it seems they’ll have to figure out the simplest path towards successful co-parenting. Here’s what we know about their super public breakup so far.
Why did Elon Musk & Grimes end things?
Are things even truly over between Elon Musk & Grimes?
According to the BBC, Musk said they “still love each other, see each other frequently, and are on great terms”. He also mentioned that they’re only “semi-separated”, which doesn’t really sound like a genuine breakup if you ask us. He stated that the reason things aren’t working revolves around their busy schedules & varying careers.
More specifically, Musk said, “It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX & Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas, and her work is primarily in L.A. She is staying with me now and baby X is in the adjacent room”. It’s unfortunate that their busy work schedules have gotten in the way of their love. If they were able to be in closer proximity the majority of the time, this might not be the result of their romance.
How did they meet?
Elon Musk & Grimes met for the first time because they both found a super niche joke hilarious on social media causing him to slide into her DMs. She tweeted something funny about A.I., a.k.a. artificial intelligence, and he was super impressed by their shared sense of humor.
The joke they connected over isn’t something most people would easily catch onto but for them, it made all the sense in the world. Even with their seventeen-year age gap, they still obviously had a lot in common. Even though they are focused on two very different industries, they still bonded over their intelligent minds.
Was marriage ever in the cards?
It’s possible that Elon Musk & Grimes discussed the possibility of marriage at one point or another but now that they’ve split after three years of dating, it doesn’t look like marriage is going to be in the cards at any point in time.
Grimes has never been married before so if she were to have married Musk, it would’ve been her first time down the aisle.
Musk has been married before and his ex-wife is named Justine. He was also romantically linked to Tallulah Riley & Amber Heard before getting involved with Grimes. Since he only referred to the breakup as the two of them being “semi-separated”, it’s possible they might completely reconcile at some point in the future. A reconciliation could very easily involve a wedding in the future as well.
Are they dating anyone new?
The relationship between Elon Musk & Grimes just ended so their breakup is still very fresh. That being said, there haven’t been any reports of either individual dating any new people just yet. It’s possible they might get back together or it’s possible they both might move on and start dating new people.
Either way, since they do share their child together, they’re going to progress with co-parenting and it seems that they already have a mature handle on things. Nothing about their breakup seems messy, dramatic, or angry. They appear to still be friendly with each other, still have a lot of respect for each other, and still, love each other very deeply for the most part.
