Billionaire Elon Musk was recently spotted partying on a yacht in Mykonos, Greece.
The 51-year-old Tesla CEO was accompanied by the founder of the Staud fashion brand, fashion designer Sarah Staudinger, 33, and her husband, agent Ari Emanuel, 61. His life and career served as the inspiration for the hit HBO series “Entourage.”
Musk was photographed swimming about in the water, drying off with a towel, and enjoying a drink on board the yacht in dozens of photographs shared by the Daily Mail. The pictures ultimately started going viral on Twitter, and even the SpaceX founder couldn’t help but joke about it.
Elon Musk: ‘Maybe I Should Take Off My Shirt More Often … Free The Nip!!’
Haha damn, maybe I should take off my shirt more often … free the nip!!
(already back in the factory btw)

On Monday, the world’s richest man, at least according to Forbes, took to Twitter to comment on a shirtless photo of him that has been going viral online.
“Haha damn, maybe I should take off my shirt more often … free the nip!!” he tweeted, before adding that he was already back in the factory.
Of course, it’s very likely that Musk was just enjoying some R&R over the weekend and was already back to work by Monday when the pictures were finally distributed online. Some people didn’t buy it, but many of his supporters wished him well.
