SpaceExes: Elon Musk and Grimes splitting

Mysterious couple Elon Musk and Grimes are calling it quits.

If you thought you never saw these two space lovers together anyway, it's only going to stay that way. Tesla and SpaceX CEO Musk told Page Six that he and the musician are taking some time apart since they work in different areas.

"We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms," Musk told the outlet.

The almost richest man in the world spends most of his time in Texas between Boca Chica, otherwise referred to as Starbase, and Austin, where the newest Tesla Gigafactory is going up. While Grimes confirmed on social media she was living in Austin in February of this year, the life of a musician takes her to LA and overseas. She is currently filming a new Fox show, "Alter Ego," as a judge.

Musk says he and Grimes will continue to co-parent their one-year-old son and the two are currently staying with him.

The power couple made their debut at the 2018 Met Gala; this year Grimes walked the Met Gala red carpet on her own with Musk meeting her inside. What some called an odd match for a number of reasons—age, professions and different lifestyles—grew to be a three-year mostly private relationship, where they seemed to live different lives. They had child X Æ A-Xii in May 2020.

The two have mostly kept "X" out of the public eye, sharing minimal photos on social media, as they do their own couple photos. "I think having a baby was a big kind of like rebirth for me, like artistically," Grimes recently told Vogue.
