Despite their “semi-separation,” Grimes took to Instagram after going out in NYC with an eyebrow-raising book to write that she and “E” are still sharing a home.
Grimes, 33, claims that she and Elon Musk, 50, are still together. On Saturday, Oct. 2, the Vancouver-born musician posted a lengthy statement to Instagram just hours after being seen wandering around New York City while reading Karl Marx’s The Communist Manifesto.
“Full disclosure, I’m still living with e,” she stated in part of her comment, likely referring to her “semi-separated” boyfriend by the nickname “E” – see the photographs here.
Grimes, whose real name is Claire Elise Boucher, then went on to talk about the book she was reading (Marx published the body of work in 1848).
“I was so stressed when the paparazzi wouldn’t stop following me this week, but then I realized it was an opportunity to troll.. I swear this headline omg wtf lol im dead,” she began the update, referring to a screenshot from the same day’s news item.
“I am not a communist…although there are some very good ideas in this book – but personally, I’m more interested in a radical decentralized ubi that I believe might be reached via crypto and gaming,” she continued. “However, I haven’t worked out that concept enough to describe it yet. Regardless, it’s tough to express my political views because the political systems that inspire me the most have yet to be implemented.”
“Anyway, if the paparazzi continue to pursue me, I’ll try to come up with new memes — suggestions welcome!” she finished the post.
In an interview on Sept. 26, the Tesla founder revealed the couple’s breakup. He told Page Six, “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently, and are on wonderful terms.”
Elon, whose mother is supermodel Maye Musk, said he spends most of his time in Los Angeles, but that his work with SpaceX requires him to spend more time in Texas.
Elon and Grimes started dating in 2018 after first meeting on Twitter. Elon and the indie singer made their red carpet debut shortly after, with a spectacular appearance at the Met Gala, where she wore a Tesla logo choker necklace.
The couple kept a low profile in the months that followed until late 2019, when the singer appeared to declare she was expecting a child. During his SNL hosting debut last spring, Grimes also made a brief guest appearance.
On May 4, 2020, Grimes and her husband welcomed their baby, X A-Xii (pronounced “Ash”), into the world. Elon has six other children with his ex-wife Justine, whom he was married to from 2000 to 2008.
