There is growing speculation that the world’s richest man, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk met his new girlfriend Natasha Bassett through his mom Maye Musk.

The news of Musk’s new girlfriend comes just a few months after he expected his eighth child with Canadian musician Grimes in December. The couple welcomed their baby via surrogate and Grimes said they were back together after welcoming the baby, but the pair split up again. 

“Me and E have broken up *again* since the writing of this article haha, but he’s my best friend and the love of my life, and my life and art are forever dedicated to The Mission now, I think Devin wrote that part of the story really well. Sique – peace out,” tweeted @Grimezsz.

While the pair may only be dating for a few months it turns out they know each other for years. The Daily Mail reports that 27-year-old Natasha has been friends with Musk’s 74-year-old mom Maye since 2015.

Maye met Natasha and her mom in September 2015. She posted a sweet comment on Natasha’s Instagram account saying how much she enjoyed meeting the actress and her mom Jenny.

“Lovely meeting you both,” she wrote on Instagram.

So, there is speculation that the billionaire’s mom was actually the one to introduce him to the Australian actress. Natasha was photos excitedly chatting to Maye at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of her new film Elvis. 

The actress is believed to have taken Maye as her plus one to the premiere, according to Hollywood Life.

“Elon and Natasha are still going strong and over time Natasha has developed a solid bond with his mother Maye,” said a source to the publication.
