Daily US Times: Tech billionaire Elon Musk says he has “semi-separated” from his partner Grimes, a Canadian pop artist.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO told Page Six that while they “still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms”, their careers often keep them apart for long periods of time.

Grimes has not yet commented on the status of her relationship Elon Musk.

Musk and Grimes began dating in 2018 and welcomed their first child, named X Æ A-Xii, in May last year.

Mr Musk said they intend to continue co-parenting their child.

Mr Musk told Page Six: “It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or travelling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room.”

The pair were last seen together last month as they were leaving the Met Gala. Grimes had walked the red carpet alone but was joined by Mr Musk inside the event.

The tech billionaire was previously married to Canadian author Justine Wilson, with whom he has five sons: triplets Damian, Saxon and Kai, 15 and twins Griffin and Xavier, 17.

Mr Musk was also twice married to Westworld actress Talulah Riley. They first wed in 2010 but divorced in 2012 and a year later, they reconciled and remarried in 2013, before divorcing again in 2016.
