Eccentric Tesla founder and billionaire Elon Musk and Canadian musician Grimes have split up.
Actually, that’s not entirely accurate; the exact term Musk used was “semi-separated”.
“We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms,” Musk told Page Six.
He pointed to differing work schedules and living in different cities as the reason for the split.
“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.”
WATCH BELOW: Grimes and Musk separate after 3 years together
News of their changed relationship status comes just over three years after their relationship first became public.
In mid-2020, Grimes and Musk welcomed their baby son, who gained instant fame for his eccentric name “X Æ A-Xii Musk”.
Musk and Grimes, whose full name is Claire Elise Boucher, last appeared together at the Met Gala which was less than two weeks ago.
Grimes walked the red carpet alone and was joined by Musk inside.
Ironically, the pair first made their debut at the Met Gala in 2018, where Musk wore a crisp white suit and Grimes donned platform boots and with a black skirt that trailed behind her.
Neither Musk nor Grimes have said anything on their social media accounts about their ‘semi-separation’.
Musk's tweets have a history of sending cryptocurrency prices skyrocketing and plunging.
New digital coin Baby Doge saw its price shoot up by 93 per cent in 24 after he issued this tweet.
