It is lonely at the top, it is true, but not for everyone; only for those who were lonely at the bottom. Elon Musk’s personal life was at times rocky, from his early life in a broken home and living with an emotionally abusive father to several alleged trial-and-error relationships. He is a pioneering technology that promises to change the world, but it seems that maintaining a relationship is a rather difficult task that is associated with his world-changing inventions. Here is a glimpse into the romantic relationships of Tesla and SpaceX founder; a guide to Elon Musk’s dating life.
Elon Musk has worked extensively on innovations and inventions such as the space launch vehicle company, SpaceX, a manufacturer of electric cars, Tesla, a concept for a high-speed transport system called Hyperloop and others. Among his many goals to make the world a better place is the reduction of global warming, his most recent project is to inhabit space to reduce the risk of human extinction. The South African-born American investor is simply a rarity, one that appears only a few times in a century.
As beautiful as his world may look from his wealth of contributions to make life easier for humanity, he still seems to have not found what his soul yearns for, someone he can call home – a companion and soul mate. The ever-evolving businessman has not only undertaken numerous business ventures with the goal of changing the world, but he has also had many relationships. So far he has had five relationships with four different people. However, there seems to be something that his multi-billion-dollar investment has not yet been able to bring him, namely a safe and happy relationship.
Musk grew up with his face buried in books, while as a child he was the victim of severe harassment. To make the pain worse, his parents separated and left him alone in the care of his father, whom he described as emotionally abusive. Although living with his father was a decision he made of his own free will, he regretted it and described these years as the worst years of his life. He grew up, never wanted to be alone, and allegedly detested any situation that could lead to such a situation.
To get a better insight into his inner life and probably also a better understanding of his statement to Rolling Stone: “If I’m not in love, if I’m not with a long-term companion, I can’t be happy”, we want to examine the dating history of the super-investor in this Elon Musk Dating Guide.
A Guide To All The Girlfriends He Has Dated or Married
While studying at Queen’s University, Ontario, Musk met the Canadian writer Justine Wilson, a fellow student who would later become his wife. The duo married in 2000 and had six children, all boys, including their first son, Nevada Alexander, who died of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) in 2002 at the age of only 10 weeks. The other five were born through in vitro fertilization (IVF) and include twins: Xavier and Griffin, born in 2004, and triplets: Damian, Kai, and Saxon, born in 2006. Unfortunately, their marriage was not to last a lifetime, as they took the lonely path of separation in 2008 and broke up their almost ten-year relationship.
Since he did not want to be alone, the billionaire investor tried to marry a second time, hoping to find what his heart longs for. Since 2008 he has been dating the British actress Talulah Riley. They entered into a marriage in 2010 and separated two years later.
Nevertheless, the gap was not to remain unbridled for long, as they walked the path of marriage a second time. The duo remarried in July 2013 but filed for divorce in December 2014. Maybe they did not find what they wanted anyway. Or maybe they did find it. Shortly afterward, they withdrew the lawsuit before the duo finally called time for their mating in 2016.
So you might think that the business mogul would not try love again. But that could only be a farce since he is known to have a sensitive soul. One might wonder, if this genius could not find love, what hope is there for the rest of us in this thing called love. But he found love again, this time with Johnny Depp’s former wife, the actress Amber Heard. Yes, you could say that there is hope for us then.
In 2016, Musk began a renewed relationship with the American actress Amber Heard. However, an intense and contradictory schedule made light of their relationship one year later.
