Elon Musk Biography

Elon Musk is a South African, Canadian and American entrepreneur and businessman. Born in South to a mining engineer father and a dietician mother, Elon Musk is a serial tech entrepreneur and currently one of the wealthiest persons in the World.

Net Worth

Elon Musk’s net worth in 2021 is 182.1 billion. The sum fluctuates, of course.

Children

Elon Musk is a father of six. His first child, Nevada Alexander Musk, passed away ten weeks after he was born, in 2002. He and his then-wife Justine tried again and had twin boys, Griffin Musk and Xavier Musk, in 2004, via IVF.

Two years later, again via IVF, they had triplets: Kai Musk, Saxon Musk and Damian Musk. Then, two years after their triplets, the couple divorced. The last of Elon Musk’s children is X Æ A-Xii, born in 2020 by the singer Grimes.

Wife/ Spouse

As a wealthy business magnate, Elon Musk is also one of the most desirable men in the world. He’s had a fair share of the ladies, of course. But, after navigating the world of marriage, Elon Musk is content with having a girlfriend called Grimes, a Canadian singer and songwriter.

He was previously married to Justine Musk, an author he met while attending Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, and the British actress Talulah Riley, whom he married and divorced twice.

Education

He might not be the most educated body out there, but Elon Musk has already made his mark in the world. Musk emigrated to Canada from South and was admitted at the Queen’s University in Kingston. After a two-year stint there, he transferred to the University of Pennsylvania in the United States, majoring in physics.

Age

Born in 1971, Elon Musk is currently 50 years old. He celebrated his birthday in June without the noise that usually follows people with limitless resources.

For one who can afford almost everything on earth, Elon Musk’s interest in real estate has declined massively in the past years. And the great man himself has made it clear he is stripping himself of all physical possessions.

True to his words, he’s sold almost all the mansions he possessed previously. For example, his mansion at 954 Somera Rd, Los Angeles, which he bought for $4,300,000 in 2015, has sold for $4,443,000. He’s sold several other properties as well.

At the moment, he’s said to be living in a rented 375sq ft unit box home in a SpaceX facility. The said property costs just $50,000.

Cars

As one of the wealthiest men in the world, Elon Musk can afford just about anything. And oh, he’s got an impressive car collection, too. He owns a McLaren F1 (which he bought after selling PayPal), E-Type Jaguar Roadster, and Lotus Esprit, aka ‘Wet Nellie’.

Others are Aero L-39 Albatros, Hamman BMW M5, Audi Q7, Porsche 911 Turbo, Tesla Cybertruck and Tesla Roadster. It is inevitable he should own a Tesla: He’s, after all, the man behind the car brand.

Nationality

Elon Musk is a citizen of three nations: South Africa, the United States, and Canada. However, many choose to call him a global citizen, given his global impact. He was born South African. However, he moved to the United States soon after and acquired citizenship of the country. He’s also a Canadian (through his mother Maye) and currently in a relationship with Canadian singer Grimes (Claire Elise Boucher), with whom he has a son.

Mother  & Father

Elon Musk’s mother and father are Maye and Errol. The two were said to have met while at Clapham High School and married years later (in 1970). However, by 1979, the marriage was over. They divorced, with Maye Musk claiming that Errol was abusive.

In an interview a year ago, Errol admitted being a terrible father and conceded to his wife’s claims about their relationship. However, he claimed full responsibility for the failure of his marriage to Maye.

When he was married to her, he was still philandering (his personal admission) and thought it was okay (like the French would. Again, his word).

For his part, Elon Musk, who had lived with his father briefly following his divorce from Maye, describe his father as evil and capable of anything. He’s especially wrathful that Errol sired a child, his (Errol’s) stepdaughter Jana Bezuidenhout. Father and son are currently estranged.

The estrangement notwithstanding, there’s no denying Elon inherited his genius from his father. Despite their rift, Elon readily admits Errol has a genius-level IQ. In addition, the older Musk was reportedly the youngest person to obtain an engineer’s certificate in South Africa. Errol is also a pilot.
