The world was left thoroughly taken aback when it was revealed that the world’s wealthiest man Elon Musk and his partner Claire Elise Boucher well-known for her stage name “Grimes” have welcomed a second child into the world. The pair earlier revealed that they were breaking up and have decided to lovingly co-parent their firstborn, baby X.

Now Grimes has revealed a little more around the “surprise” baby and living with a billionaire.

Grimes says Elon lives like a poor man

One wouldn’t expect to hear that the richest man in the world lives a life that is anything but lavish but Grimes just revealed that her boyfriend and children’s father Elon Musk definitely does not live as if he is the wealthiest person on Earth.

According to a Buzzfeed article, Grimes has shared that Elon, at times, lives below the poverty line adding that sometimes she eats peanut butter for days in a row.

“Bro does not live like a billionaire. … Bro lives at times below the poverty line,” she said.

“To the point where I was like, ‘Can we not live in a very insecure $40,000 house? Where the neighbors, like, film us, and there’s no security, and I’m eating peanut butter for eight days in a row?”

‘Not hoarding’ his wealth

The Canadian singer slammed those who say that the Tesla and Space X founder is “hoarding” wealth because he is saving the money to work on his long-time dream of getting humans to occupy Mars.

“People are like, ‘He’s hoarding money!’ No, he’s spending everything on [research and development],” Grimes shared.

She also added that he is committed to the “expensive” and “dangerous” project for the “benefit of humanity”.
