Grimes recently made the headlines for welcoming a second child with her on-off billionaire partner Elon Musk. Barely hours after the news dropped, Grimes regained the spotlight following reports that she had started a new relationship with hacker Chelsea Manning.
Although speculation regarding Grimes and Elon’s relationship status emerged after she referred to him as her “boyfriend” in her pregnancy announcement, Grimes subsequently acknowledged their breakup and has been “getting serious” with Manning.
Despite the Wikileaks whistleblower’s past, all indications point towards a bourgeoning relationship for the unlikely pair, seemingly ending Grimes’s entanglement with Musk.
Grimes And Chelsea Manning Are Allegedly Living Together
According to Page Six, Grimes and Chelsea’s relationship is on the fast track, with a source revealing that they “U-Hauled it” and have been “living together in Austin.
Though Grimes and Chelsea’s rumored romance is escalating, the two have been conversing on Twitter for months, with some tweets even hinting at their relationship. Manning replied “vouch” to a tweet from comedian Hasan Minhaj in which Grimes pledged to be a guest on his show. This seemed to refer to behind-the-scenes interactions between Chelsea and Grimes.
Fans in the comment section quickly jumped in on the tweet inquiring from the hacker if there was more to her relationship with Grimes. Manning gave no response to the comments, neither has Grimes come out to publicly confirm the rumors about the relationship.
Regardless of the silence from both quarters, it is most likely that Grimes and Manning would be open to disclosing the status of their relationship sooner than later.
The Singer Welcomed A New Baby With Elon Musk
The rumored couple’s fast-paced relationship comes after Grimes announced her second breakup from Elon in a shocking interview with Vanity Fair. She also revealed she and Elon secretly had a daughter in December 2021. Exa Dark Siderl Musk, or Y for short, is the new baby’s name. Elon and Grimes already have a son, X A-Xii Musk, who goes by the moniker X.
With her alleged relationship with Manning getting more serious by the day, many fans have wondered how Grimes and Musk will co-parent their two children. Musk is renowned for being involved in many business ventures, which might hamper his availability, while Grimes is reportedly working on some new music. With any luck, the pair would work something out in the weeks to come.
Why The Star Might Have Broken Up With Elon Musk
Musk announced in May 2020 that he would be selling all of his belongings and residences. The tech mogul reportedly moved into a $50,000 prefab small house rented from SpaceX after the declaration.
Living such a lifestyle did not go down well with Grimes, who was in a relationship with Musk at the time. In her interview with Vanity Fair, she complained that her former partner lived below the poverty line, saying he refused to buy her a new mattress after they discovered it had a hole in it.
“Like, bro wouldn’t even get a new mattress,” she told the publication.
“Bro does not live like a billionaire. Bro lives at times below the poverty line,” Grimes added. “To the point where I was like, can we not live in a very insecure $40,000 house? Where the neighbors, like, film us, and there’s no security, and I’m eating peanut butter for eight days in a row?”
Grimes Says Her Relationship With Musk Is Fluid
Although Grimes and Musk are no longer lovers, the singer admitted that their connection was still intact, further describing their current relationship as fluid.
“There’s no real word for it,” she said, adding that they are “very fluid.”
“We live in separate houses. We’re best friends. We see each other all the time. We just have our own thing going on, and I don’t expect other people to understand it,” she explained, saying they are happy. “This is the best it’s ever been…. We just need to be free.”
Musk has been sighted with Australian actress Natasha Bassett since his breakup with Grimes.
