As stated, Grimes was forced to open up about her third child following the released snippets of Walter Isaacson’s upcoming biography about Musk. One of the teasers reported by The Wall Street Journal claimed the Canadian sensation was angry about the revelation of her ex-lover’s twins with the Neuralink executive.
