Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s “baby mama” Canadian musician Grimes and whistle-blower Chesea Manning have reportedly broken up. 


Chelsea Manning and Grimes, the mother of Elon Musk’s two children, reportedly began dating back in March. Page Six reports that the pair have now called it quits.

A source tells the publication the pair have “been breaking up for a while.” However, a source previously told the publication that the pair were “getting serious. They U-Hauled it. They’ve been living together in Austin.”

March was the same month that Vanity Fair reported that Grimes and Musk welcomed their second child together. At the time Grimes revealed that she and the billionaire had gotten back together after their split in 2021 but by the time the article was published they had broken up again.

“I would probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluid. We live in separate .houses. We’re best friends,” she said to Vanity Fair.

“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,” she wrote on Twitter after the article was published.
