"It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room."

Musk and Grimes, whose real name is Claire Elise Boucher, started dating in 2018 and share a one-year-old son together named X Æ A-Xii.

The pair was last seen together at the 2021 Met Gala in New York City. Grimes, 33, walked the red carpet solo and met up with Musk later inside the event. After the fashion party, they threw a star-studded afterparty at the private club Zero Bond.
