If you have friends like that, you don’t need enemies…
The boss of Tesla Elon Musk according to a media report, had an affair with the wife of Sergey Brin – co-founder of Google and longtime friend of Musk. It’s about Brin’s longtime partner, Nicole Shanahan.
According to this According to the Wall Street Journal, the infidelity probably took place at the end of last year, more precisely: at the beginning of December. Musk and Shanahan were together at the Art Basel art fair in Miami, which ran from December 2-4.
In January, Brin then filed for divorce — due to “irreconcilable differences,” according to court documents. Brin discovered the case a few weeks earlier, as reported by the American newspaper. The documents also list the time the couple separated: December 15.
At the time of the alleged affair, Brin and his wife were separated but still together, according to a source close to Shanahan. The two have been married for almost four years and have a daughter (3) together.
pretty bad friends
The two tech billionaires were very good friends: Musk himself once said that he had regularly stayed at Brin’s in Silicon Valley for years. And Brin earned nearly $500,000 for Tesla during the 2008 financial crisis because Musk’s electric car forge had production issues. In return, Musk gave Brin one of the first Tesla SUVs in 2015.
However, The Wall Street Journal also reports that Brin and Shanahan’s marriage was already falling apart. As a result, the corona pandemic and the care of their daughter in particular led the couple to live apart.
Friends also say the Tesla boss personally apologized to Brin: Musk knelt in front of Brin at a party and repeatedly asked for forgiveness. Brin has accepted the apology – but is said to be keeping his distance from Musk for now.
None of the three parties initially responded to a press request, according to the Wall Street Journal. (rob)
