Riley has been married to Elon Musk twice — she first married the tech mogul in 2010, but the couple divorced two years later. The couple reconciled and remarried the following year, only to divorce again in 2016.

Riley and Musk first met at a bar in London in 2008, according to Cosmopolitan. The couple married two years after they met at Dornoch Cathedral in the UK.
Riley was Musk’s second wife — but in an undated article by Marie Claire, Musk’s first wife, Justine Wilson, said there was no bad blood between her and Riley.
“She appears to be a lovely, bright and very young person and fits my ex-husband’s lifestyle and personality better than I ever have,” Wilson wrote in the article.
Riley and Musk first married in 2010 but divorced in 2012. They later rekindled their romance and remarried in 2013 before divorcing again in 2016.
Riley told The Independent in a July interview that she knew it was “strange” to marry Musk and get divorced — twice.
“I suppose the reason for remarrying was simply that being unmarried together felt silly after being married. You know it’s like a habit. We said, ‘This is my husband.’ ‘This is my wife.’ “Oh wait, no, we’re not anymore. We’d better be back,” Riley told the British newspaper.
Riley added that she has a “very deep love and connection” for Musk and that he has remained a “great friend” even after their divorce.
“He’s watching over me. We’re in a happy place now where we’re good to each other, which is really nice. I have the greatest love for him,” she told The Independent.
