After three years together, the Tesla CEO confirmed he and the singer—who share 16-month-old son X Æ A-12 Musk—are pressing pause on their romance. “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms,” Elon told Page Six. “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.”
This news comes shortly after Elon made a solo appearance at Alicia Keys‘ 2021 Met Gala after-party while Grimes walked the famed steps into the event by herself. Just a little more than three years ago, the annual fashion event served as the pair’s red carpet debut.
Two years later, in May 2020, Grimes, 33, and Elon, 50, welcomed their first child together—on the day the Met Gala had been scheduled to take place.
