Elon Musk has refuted a Wall Street Journal report that claims that he was in a relationship with Google co-founder Sergei Brin’s wife, which has resulted in the couple filing for a divorce. The report also alleged that Musk and Brin are no longer friends.
Musk said the report is a “total BS” and that there was nothing romantic between him and Brin’s now ex-wife Nicole Shanahan.
The Wall Street Journal claims that Musk and Shanahan engaged in an affair for a brief period in December last year at the Art Basel Festival in Miami.
The report also claims that Musk “dropped to one knee” in front of Mr. Brin and apologized, begging forgiveness. Reports say that Brin accepted the apology; however, they are not on any talking terms.
Musk says that the claims made against him in Wall Street Journal reports are false, and there was nothing romantic between Nicole and him. He tweeted that the information is “total BS, Sergei and I are friends and were at a party together last night.”
