We’re sure you’ve probably heard of Elon Musk, a 30-year old multi-millionaire known for his technological endevours, and multiple successful avenues of entrepreneurship in the last decade or so. He is currently with singer, and song-writer Grimes. She recently came out with an album by the name of Miss Anthropocene. On surface level these two come from completely differently realms of society, one from music, and one from a business/science standpoint. So how exactly did Elon Musk and Grimes meet?
Back in 2000, Elon Musk married Justine Wilson. The two of them had six children, one of which sadly passed away due to SIDS in 2002. It was the quite the family, with the six boys in the household. In 2008 Musk, and Wilson divorced. After that Musk married Talulah Riley in 2010, then once again divorced in 2012 (only to be remarried, and then divorced again after that). Musk then dated Amber Heard for a little bit before breaking up in 2017.
So with all these marriages, and divorces, how did Musk come to meet Grimes? The turn of events will probably surprise you. The two supposedly met online when consequentially Grimes told a joke, that Musk was going to make on Twitter involving A.I. (Artificial Intelligence). The joke had to do with a thought experiment involving Roko’s Basilisk, and some sort of play on words with “Rococo” a French 18th century style of Baroque. Musk was going to indulge in the wordplay, but Grimes had beaten him to it…3 years earlier.
Grimes (real name Claire Boucher) had never met anyone who had actually understood the joke/wordplay, that is until Musk. This probably has to do with Musk’s background in technology, more specifically AI. Fun fact, Musk actually spoke about his concern about A.I., calling them more dangerous to us “than nukes”. From here the two began a rather passive relationship from the mainstream media, unlike some of Musk’s previous relationships. Who would’ve guessed that about a year later the two would be announcing a baby.
Last month the big announcement was made, in a very strange way. Grimes took to Instagram with a very strange photo of her pregnant belly and a red triangle drawn on it. Many people were left confused, the lack of a caption on the photo didn’t help much. Musk replied to the post with a simple “x is y”. After that Grimes posted a half-naked picture of herself with a photo-shopped picture of a fetus on it (the picture was removed shortly after). At this point many went crazy with speculation that Musk could be the father, which turned out to be true. We’ll have to keep an eye on these two in the next couple of months.
