Elon Musk’s wives: Justine Wilson Musk 1st wife, and Talulah Riley Musk 2nd wife – their ages, images, children, Instagram, net worth, pictures, height, zodiac sign, etc.

Elon Musk is arguably one of the richest and most successful men of our time with a shocking net worth of $221.1 billion. Aside from being absurdly rich, Elon is a visionary, serving both as designer and CEO of companies dedicated to the future of transportation, artificial intelligence, and neurotechnology.

Despite these impressive credentials, Elon Musk is a family man! His brood just keeps growing, and there is one thing that Elon Musk doesn’t seem to excel at: marriage. Divorced and currently in a relationship with his girlfriends, Elon was once married to two equally fascinating women: Justine Musk and Talulah Riley.

While Elon Musk once said that he would “rather stick a fork in my hand than write about my personal life”, he has since opened up about his desire to be in a long-term relationship and find his soulmate. He has spoken about how “going to sleep alone kills [him]” and that he “will never be happy without having someone”. While many things seem to come easily to Elon, loneliness is a struggle that has been with him since childhood.

In this article, TheVibely is going to share with you a brief biography about the women who captured Elon Musk’s heart, how he met them, how they divorced, and what’s new for his ex-wives.

How Elon Musk Meet His First Wife?

Elon Musk first met Jennifer Justine Wilson when they were both students at Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada. She recalls how he approached her one afternoon outside her dorm and then asked her out for ice cream. While she agreed to the date, Justine later decided to blow him off in favor of studying. Despite this, Elon showed up, “smiling awkwardly, two chocolate-chip ice cream cones dripping down his hands. He’s not a man who takes no for an answer.Save”I Was a Starter Wife”: Inside America’s Messiest DivorceMarie Claire MagazineJustine Musk Interview on Divorce from PayPal Founder Elon Musk

Justine Wilson wanted to become a writer, a career far from Elon’s world of science and numbers. On one of their dates, she told him: “One day, I want my own books to go right there”. This ambitious passion further drew Elon to Justine, leading him to tell her that “. After Justine obtained her degree in English Literature, she left for Japan to teach English as a Second Language for a year. By this time, she and Elon had gone their separate ways.

But that was far from the end of their relationship. Elon and Justine eventually reconnected. Elon was more successful by this time, and one of the ways he wooed Justine was by giving her his credit card so that she could buy as many books as she wanted. “No man could have said anything sweeter”, she recalls.

The pair were married in January 2000, and two years later, they welcomed their first child together: Nevada Alexander. Unfortunately, Nevada would pass away due to sudden infant death syndrome at the age of 10 weeks. With the help of in vitro fertilisation, Justine was pregnant again and gave birth in 2004 to twin boys, Griffin and Xavier. This was followed by triplets in 2006, three boys named Damian, Saxon, and Kai.

Despite their initial happiness, the pair eventually went on to divorce. Justine felt that she had turned into a mere trophy wife and that Elon didn’t see her as his equal. By 2008, they were divorced. For the sake of their kids, Justine kept Elon’s last name. They shared custody of their five children, though Justine communicates with him through his assistant.

Where Is Justine Musk Now?

Justine has had success in her own right, becoming a published author. She had her first work published in 2005, the horror and contemporary fantasy novel BloodAngel. A sequel, Lord of Bones, was published in 2008. In between the two is an unrelated novel entitled Uninvited, which came out in 2007.

How Did Elon Musk Meet Talulah Riley?

After his divorce from Justine, Elon started dating British actress and bikini bombshell, Talulah Riley. At the time, she was best known for her role as Mary Bennet in the 2005 film Pride and Prejudice. They met when Elon visited London in 2008, giving a lecture to the Royal Aeronautical Society.

A friend of Elon’s took him to a club where a club promoter introduced them to some models, which included Talulah. She recalls that “he seemed quite nervous”, but even with their 20-year age difference, they did hit it off. It turns out that Talulah was interested in physics and quantum mechanics, and was drawn to Elon and his ideas. One of their conversations revolved about colonising Mars!

Elon Musk And Talulah Riley’s Engagement And Marriage

It only took 10 days before Talulah and Elon were engaged. Talulah had flown to LA to be with Elon at the time, and after his proposal, she flew back to England to fetch her luggage and parents. They returned immediately to LA, where Elon’s mother came over and everyone got to know each other. It was going to be a long engagement: Talulah and Elon married in 2010 in a storybook wedding in Dornoch Cathedral.

Talulah remembers Elon as very chivalrous and romantic. Despite the distance between them, Elon would find ways to express his love for her. During the filming of St. Trinian’s 2, he sent her 500 roses, along with a bouquet for all the other women on set so that they wouldn’t feel left out.

For Talulah’s birthday, he arranged for the London Community Gospel Choir to sing her happy birthday. As Elon’s wife, she was happy to be a traditional homemaker: she dressed her husband every morning and baked bran muffins for her step-sons. Talulah loved being a stepmother to Elon’s five boys and even became good friends with Justine.Getty

Unfortunately, the marriage fell apart in 2012. Elon tweeted, “It was an amazing four years. I will love you forever. You will make someone very happy one day”. They finalised their divorce with Talulah receiving a $AUD6-million settlement, but mere months later, Talulah Riley became Elon Musk’s wife again! Unfortunately, the second marriage led to divorce yet again in 2016 with an $AUD28.6 million settlement. Despite their separation, Elon and Talulah remain close friends.

Where Is Talulah Riley Now?

After Pride and Prejudice, Talulah Riley is best known for her role in 2010’s Inception and her current work on the television series Westworld. Talulah Riley is reportedly in a relationship with her new boyfriend, actor Thomas Brodie-Sangster.

Is Elon Musk Single? What’s Next For Elon Musk?

Elon Musk is not single. He is in a relationship with two women; Grimes and Natasha Bassett, as of now.

Elon isn’t one to remain single for long. Within the same year, he was dating American actress Amber Heard, who only just exited her marriage with actor Johnny Depp. Unfortunately, there would be no wedding for those two, as they broke up due to their busy schedules. Amber and Elon dated from 2017 to 2018.

In 2018, Elon started dating Canadian singer Grimes. Their relationship coincided with personal controversies: there was a lawsuit against Elon and Grimes was in a feud with Azealia Banks. Their relationship was confirmed when they attended the 2018 Met Gala together, though now it isn’t quite clear where they stand.

Musk and Grimes

Page Six exclusively reported in September 2021 that Musk and Grimes had broken up.

Grimes clarified via Twitter when the interview was published that she and Musk had “broken up again,” writing, “He’s my best friend and the love of my life, and my life and art are forever dedicated to The Mission now.”

The SpaceX founder said last fall that he and Grimes were “semi-separated”, in response to rumors they’d broken up. She went on to release a song that some people interpreted as confirmation of the split, which Grimes confirmed in her comments to Vanity Fair, wasn’t the case.

As far as their current relationship status, Grimes said “there’s no real word for it.”

Grimes and the tech mogul had broken up after three years together. Now, the pair are back together in some sort of capacity. However, Grimes has revealed that they do not live together.

“I would probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluid. We live in separate houses. We’re best friends. We see each other all the time … We just have our own thing going on, and I don’t expect other people to understand it,” she explained to the publication.

She continued, noting that their partnership is “the best it’s ever been” right now. “This is the best it’s ever been,” she said of their happiness. “We just need to be free.”

Musk and Grimes have two children; a boy, and now a girl.

Grimes and Elon’s first baby, X, short for X Æ A-12, was born almost two years ago, in May of 2020. In Grimes’s recent interview with Vanity Fair, she revealed that her first child, X Æ A-XII, was with his father. Grimes and Musk’s daughter, Y, short for Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, was born somewhere in December 2021.

The on-again couple hopes to expand their family, even more, telling Vanity Fair that they have “always wanted at least three or four” children together.

He was most recently rumored to be dating Australian actress Natasha Bassett.
