Elon Musk has confirmed his breakup with longtime girlfriend, Canadian-musician Grimes. After three years together and the birth of a now one-year-old boy, the couple has called things quits.
The SpaceX founder confirmed that he and Grimes, 33 are “semi-separated” but will remain on good terms and work hard at being successful co-parents to their boy, Page Six reports.
Explaining the cause of their spilt, Musk says conflicting schedules got in the way of their romance.
“It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room," he said.
