Elon Musk confirmed he and Grimes are no longer together in a statement to Page Six on September 24. “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently, and are on great terms,” he said. He said that their separation was caused by his work schedule, and that their long-distance relationship. But that they would continue to be good parents to their son. “It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA,” He elaborated. “She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room.”
Page Six reports that Musk and Grimes last saw each other at the Met Gala in May, right before their split. Although they didn’t walk together on the red carpet, the couple reportedly met at the event and then went to a private Met Gala afterparty at Zero Bond in New York City.
