Tesla billionaire Elon Musk and his ex-girlfriend Grimes lived in a ‘very insecure $40,000 house’ because he doesn’t lead a billionaire’s lifestyle, the singer has revealed.
In a sit-down interview with Vanity Fair, the 33-year-old singer opened up about her ‘fluid’ relationship with Elon, who has an estimated net worth of $228.7 billion.
She explained that the couple, who reportedly split for the first time in September last year, were romantically involved at the time of the interview and co-parenting their two children, X Æ A-12 and Exa Dark Sideræl, despite living in separate homes.
The singer, who has since split from the Tesla CEO for a second time, explained that the decision to live separately came – at least in part – as a result of his desire to live in a low-cost ‘insecure house’ where neighbors were able to film them.
‘Bro does not live like a billionaire. Bro lives at times below the poverty line,’ she said. ‘To the point where I was like, can we not live in a very insecure $40,000 house? Where the neighbors, like, film us, and there’s no security, and I’m eating peanut butter for eight days in a row?’
The singer insisted they didn’t live like billionaires when together, revealing that Elon was funneling a large portion of his money into his SpaceX Mars program, which is dedicated to landing humans on the planet within the next four years.
‘The Mars project is hard. There’s no income for it,’ Grimes said. ‘There’s no way for it to make money. [His Mars project] is for the benefit of humanity, and it’s dangerous and it’s expensive, and people are like, “He’s hoarding money!” No, he’s spending everything on R&D.’
