The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday that Tesla co-founder Elon Musk had a “brief affair” with Nicole Shanahan, the estranged wife of Sergey Brin, cofounder of Google and Musk’s friend. Brin and Shanahan are currently in the process of divorcing. The report claimed that Musk got down on one knee at an event to beg Brin for forgiveness.
On Sunday night, Musk categorically denied the affair on Twitter while replying to an account that had posted a link to the article, unfortunately also revealing that he hadn’t “had sex in ages.” He tweeted this on his main feed on Monday:
Shanahan, an attorney who founded the social-change investment foundation Bia-Echo, denied WSJ’s reporting on Tuesday through a statement from lawyer Bryan Freedman. “Make no mistake,” Freedman told the Daily Mail’s website, “any suggestion that Nicole had an affair with Elon Musk is not only an outright lie but also defamatory.”
A WSJ spokesperson told Vanity Fair and other media outlets, “We are confident in our sourcing, and we stand by our reporting.”
Sergey Brin, the co-founder of Google and the 7th richest person in the world with a fortune of $93 billion. Between the man who created the famous Android operating system and the Tesla boss, there was a longtime friendship, the relationship between them is extremely close.
In fact, Brin is also the benefactor of Musk, the richest man in the world with a newly announced fortune of up to $253 billion.
“At the height of the recession in 2008, Brin lent Musk $500,000 to save Tesla. Without the support from billionaire Brin, Musk’s electric car company would probably be on the verge of bankruptcy.” – The Wall Street Journal commented.
In response, in 2015, Musk gave you one of Tesla’s first all-electric sports cars.
Thinking that that good friendship would not change, the 51-year-old billionaire fell in love with a “lightning” love affair with the brown-haired beauty Nicole Shanahan, the wife of billionaire Brin.
The time of the affair took place when Mr. Brin and Mrs. Shanahan were separated but still living in the same house. The couple’s marriage has been in trouble since the fall of 2021 when the Covid-19 pandemic prevented them from leaving the house and disagreements over the care of their 3-year-old daughter. Mr. Brin and Mrs. Shanahan were once considered the most perfect couple in the tech world.
Just about a month after the affair was discovered, billionaire Sergey Brin and his second wife filed for divorce on the grounds of “irreconcilable differences”. Sources revealed that billionaire Brin also instructed his financial advisor to sell his personal investments in his companies.Elon Musk.
Currently, Elon Musk – a billionaire with 9 children with many different women – has not yet spoken out when the affair scandal with brown-haired beauty Nicole Shanahan was exposed.
