South African-born billionaire, Elon Musk reportedly had a sexual relationship with a SpaceX employee who started working at the company as an intern.

ELON MUSK REPORTEDLY HAD SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH SPACEX EMPLOYEE

SpaceX and Tesla CEO, Elon Musk reportedly had a sexual relationship with a SpaceX employee, who started working at the company as an intern. The employee was later hired not long after she finished college, before she ended things. The Wall Street Journal reported that Musk also pursued relationships with other female subordinates at SpaceX.

Musk reportedly also asked one female employee to bear his children. The billionaire, who hails from Pretoria, South Africa, also reportedly carried on a month-long sexual relationship with a third woman, who reported directly to him at SpaceX. The pair later cut ties. The third woman was accused of having an affair with the husband of another SpaceX executive.

The father of 11, reportedly met the then-intern in the early 2010s, when she was an engineering student at college. According to the journal, the woman and Musk went for a meal after she had sent him ideas on how to improve the company. The pair then kissed and bonded over their love for Star Wars.

A year later, Musk reportedly arranged for the woman to be flown in to a resort in Sicily, where they met. The billionaire was attending a conference sponsored by Google at the time. The woman was reportedly booked on a first-class flight to London, and then private jet to Italy. She was also allegedly offered a role on Musk’s executive staff in 2017.

THE WOMAN DENIES EVER HAVING A ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BILLIONAIRE

However, the woman denied that she ever had a romantic relationship with Musk. She was reportedly unhappy at SpaceX because she felt like it was difficult for her ideas to have been taken seriously.

“Elon tried to rekindle our relationship prior to my employment, and I rejected the advance. While there was some initial awkwardness, it was nothing out of the ordinary after a rejection,” she said in a sworn affidavit provided to the Journal by a law firm which also represents Musk and Tesla.

Musk currently has two children, a pair of twins with his SpaceX and Neuralinks employee, Shivon Zilis.  Business Insider broke the news of Musk fathering a “secret” pair of twins with Zilis. The pair reportedly welcomed their twins via In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).

The billionaire welcomed a total of 11 children with three women.
