Is Cameron Diaz quietly dating Tesla & Paypal billionaire Elon Musk?

Is Cameron Diaz hittin’ it with a billionaire? Well… at least it’s not P. Diddy. According to Page Six, Camy has been getting frisky with Paypal co-founder and Tesla CEO Elon Musk (can you believe someone actually has the name “Elon Musk”?). You can read’s Musk’s Wiki here – he seems like an honest-to-God genius and business wunderkind. He’s also only one year older than Camy, which makes this relationship incredibly age-appropriate. Yay?

Cameron Diaz has been spending time with billionaire Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk, sources exclusively tell Page Six.

Diaz, 40, and Musk, 41, got to know each other after she bought one of the electric sports cars earlier this year, we hear.

But sources tell us Musk — said to be the inspiration for “Iron Man” genius billionaire Tony Stark played by Robert Downey Jr. — has gotten close to Diaz and has been increasingly traveling to Los Angeles from Tesla headquarters in Palo Alto. He’s been going to LA so regularly, Musk often arrives without giving his colleagues a heads-up he’s in town. The reason, we’re told, is because he’s “visiting Cameron.”

Sources said Diaz, who is filming the romantic comedy “The Other Woman” alongside Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, is a big fan of Musk, a South African-born entrepreneur who launched software companies Zip2 and PayPal and space exploration firm Space X before launching Tesla Motors.

Diaz bought a Tesla Model S EV earlier this year, an energy-friendly electric sedan with no emissions and a top speed of about 130 mph.

Musk, worth $4.5 billion, has been married and divorced twice, most recently to British actress Talulah Riley, 27, with whom he split in 2012 and later reconciled. The couple in mid-May attended the Maxim Hot 100 party together in LA, where Riley is living.

Diaz, meanwhile, split with New York Yankee third baseman Alex Rodriguez two years ago, and appears to have been unattached since.

While reps for neither Diaz nor Musk got back to us, perhaps the single Diaz is looking to settle down. On Monday, passengers on a Delta flight from Nice, France, overheard the actress going “gaga” over Uma Thurman and Arpad Busson’s daughter Luna, whom Busson held close to his chest in a Baby Bjorn.

After Thurman showed off Luna to Diaz and fellow passenger Nicole Kidman, Diaz “gushed how she’s wanted to have a baby,” an onlooker told us.

That bit about Elon and his ex-wife is really the only shady part, I think. Elon was married to actress Talulah Riley for two years, they divorced last summer and then reconciled last December. I’m including a photo of Elon and Talulah together last year (below). Elon Musk is worth a reported $1.5 billion (give or take), but his settlement to Talulah was a mere £2.5 million! That’s interesting. So is Camy getting on some other lady’s man? Or have Elon and Talulah called it quits again, or is Elon just dating both of them at the same time? Huh.

    Honestly? Who hasn’t she “dated”?

  2. Lucy says:

    That first picture of her is horrendous

  3. Dani says:

    Looks like Cameron (as much as I like her) is in it for the same reason as his ex wife is/was. $$$$

  4. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I thought he was interesting until I read the part about him marrying a 27-year-old.
    *sigh* So predictable…

  5. allons-y alonso says:

    I liked Talulah Riley in Doctor Who – she was adorable in the library episode as Miss Evangalista

  6. Chrissie says:

    I went to UPenn’s Wharton graduation and they mentioned this guy like 6 times as being one of the most successful Wharton graduates of recent. He’s kind of gross looking…guess he has a good personality?

    • JM says:

      Yeah, his GREEN personality.

    • xxx says:

      This is a bad photo of him. He’s not a male model, but he’s attractive. He’s also a self-made man and he’s achievements are incredible!! He is not only a CEO and founder of companies, he’s the lead designer in 2 of them. His mind is incredible. He has also committed to leaving most of his fortune to philanthropy.

      I used to always go for tall, dark, BUILT guys, super attractive, but not always so smart… Then the guy who I fell for in the end was short, slightly ginger, okay looking, but the most incredible mind and personality and who can always make me laugh. He also has had amazing career achievements that just blow my mind due to his hard work and just going for it. Personality trumps looks.

    Cameron is going to turkey baste a baby with Elon’s musk.

  8. Harpreet says:

    Kaiser, you must read this article by his ex-wife, he told her during their wedding dance that he was the “Alpha” in their marriage!

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Dude sounds like a HUMONGOUS asshole.

      “And no matter how many highlights I got, Elon pushed me to be blonder. “Go platinum,” he kept saying, and I kept refusing.”

      D*CK. BAG.

      Maybe I’m a bitch but I still side-eye any chick that would get involved with a guy like that in the first place. Not blaming her for his douchebaggery but I always suspect that women get pulled into it by the dollar signs and then 5 kids later, realize they aren’t getting the attention they deserve because the guy is married to his job.

      I guess it’s hard for me to respect women who aren’t astute enough to see that inevitable outcome coming from a mile away.

      • Sumodo1 says:

        5 kids. “Go platinum.” Bestie with the nextie. WHOA! This woman is a saint–and Elon Musk is a royal handjob.

      • mabooski says:

        maybe it is just you…I mean, why even suggest that she was somehow privy to and therefore deserving of his mistreatment? Like, that IS what happens, a horrid and manipulative partner isn’t going to show his worst traits first is he?

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Where and how exactly did I suggest that she deserved his mistreatment? I’m asking you to point out where I suggested that.
        *waits*
        Yeah that’s what I thought.

        Really, just don’t do that. Don’t put words in my mouth.

        Is it REALLY incomprehensible to think that a guy who runs two billion dollar enterprises might not have enough time to be really involved with his wife and five kids? I mean REALLY? Is it that big of a surprise when it turns out he’s never there?

        She’s either naive or she wanted the dream house and the $$ and didn’t think about the actual difficulty that would come with having a relationship with a guy that works 60 hours a week, that’s all I’m saying. Either way she was blind to it and everyone has some level of accountability in their life decisions. Vilify him all you want but he didn’t snatch her off the street and force her to marry him.

      • Isabelle says:

        Elon wrote a letter responding to his ex-wife and she has made several comments as well. She apparently went in a depression after they lost a baby and their marriage didn’t survive it. He worked all the time and she said he ‘changed’ (please, men don’t change, we just open our eyes to see the real them). Always two sides to every divorce. Elon plans on retiring on Mars, so anyone that ends up with him, is asking for a wandering man.

      • Drea says:

        @TheOriginalKitten – He wasn’t a wealthy entrepreneur who runs two billion dollar enterprises when his first wife met him – they were college sweethearts.

      • mabooski says:

        ‘I guess it’s hard for me to respect women who aren’t astute enough to see that inevitable outcome coming from a mile away’

        Her inability to detect that he was a knob before it was to late means that you find it hard respect her? I’m not putting any words in your mouth boo.

        and to echo Drea; He wasn’t a wealthy entrepreneur who runs two billion dollar enterprises when his first wife met him – they were college sweethearts.

        thus refuting your laim that she was ‘drawn in by the $$$’

    • Liv says:

      Why is Cameron always giving in to douchebags? Ugh!

    • drdoolittling says:

      Thanks for the link. That man sounds HORRIBLE. Cameron is an idiot if she think he will treat her any differently than he did his other “conquests”. What a self-absorbed, egotistical douchewad.

  9. MistyNinja says:

    Hahhhaaaa. He has a boogie in his nose.

  10. goodquestion says:

    I guess those new boobs have paid off for her.

  11. megan says:

    I can’t stand her. I don’t even know when I started to not like her since I love Something about Mary but she’s someone who just looking at annoys me.

    Anyway this wouldn’t be the first time Cam entered a relationship where the guy was with someone else. She did fool around with Diddy when he was still boning Cassie

    • Thinker says:

      That’s on Diddy. I don’t even know who Cassie is, I would guess Cameron doesn’t either. Sounds like casual hook ups from all their perspectives anyway, doubtful any of those 3 expected/was looking for monogamy. If Cassie was expecting monogamy from Diddy, then it’s really only him who has to explain why he broke her trust.

      Also, Musk left the mother of his 5 sons for an affair with his now ex wife Talulah.

  12. Hahaha says:

    She has to…The young guys dont want her anymore..And she be looking really ruff lately.Poor aging, bored Camzie.The Asian in him, gives him that ietsy pietsy (VERY)little spark. mr Paypall has only money to show.
    CAmZie learned wel: ‘why spend mine,when i can get yours’.

  13. lucy2 says:

    Sounds like an interesting guy, but an odd pairing.

  14. ARI says:

    Am I the only one that adores Cameron she is funny and in my opinion a smart woman.

  15. LAK says:

    Business acumen aside, everything about i’ve ever read about this guy’s personal relationships says he is a huge douchebag. Even if you add in the fact that people embellish/make up stories, there is not one story about him that points to a likable person to date.

    It’s a good thing he has money. he will always be fighting them off.

  16. junegorilla says:

    All of those celebs were together on a commercial flight? What?

  17. Thinker says:

    I think these two make sense. Cameron has a high tolerance for douchebags. Why wouldn’t an environmentalist techy billionaire want Cameron? She’s green, she’s fit, she’s fun, she’s fabulously wealthy and well connected in her own right. Cameron Diaz has no baggage folks! None! Do you know how rare that is in a 40 year old woman?? No kids, no divorces, no debts, no major scandals, nada. She’s like a unicorn.

    In him she sees a very smart, ambitious, eccentric and unique person who intrigues her. I’m glad to see she’s gotten the handsome jerks (aROD cough cough) out of her system. It’s better to be with a smart jerk, at least she’ll grown some depth of understanding in her environmental consciousness. They could be a great marketing team for the next Green Wave of Technology.

  18. megan says:

    Some of you act like Cameron is poor. The girl use to make 20 mil per film she doesn’t need his money. Oh god you made me defend her ughhhh

  19. Miss Kitty says:

    Seriously, that dude is brilliant. Surely he can do better than empty-headed, vain actresses?

  20. Quinn says:

    Whoever told Cameron to pull her hair back clearly hated her. Eek.

  21. KellyinSeattle says:

    I like the white outfit.

  22. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    They both look like their faces are falling off.

    Good match.

  23. Jessica says:

    I’m not sure I believe this story:
    1) Musk lives and works in LA and only travels to Palo Alto when he needs to be there. He has a huge home in Bel-air or something.
    2) There is a Telsa plant in LA, and SpaceX–which he works at–is also in LA. Well, Hawthorne, but that’s in the LA area.
    3) His children live in LA (and I think some other family) so even if he didn’t live full time in LA his traveling there does not mean he’s only going there to see Camy.
    I don’t know, they may be hooking up, but I kind of doubt this story. I think it was a plant from Camy’s camp, I mean the fawning over someone’s kid thing screams “hey Elon, I love kids, I’ll be a great step-mom”. They may have met and she may want to date/marry him and that’s why she leaked this story. Because if it came from anyone, it came from her, she’s the one getting the benefit of this story, not him.

    • Kacy says:

      Agreed. Taluleh just tweeted about him on 5/18 and promoted Tesla on 5/25. Something says that if they had broken up that she would not have done that. Plus I think he reconciled with Taluleh to offset all the bad PR with the two divorces. He wouldn’t be dumb enough to cheat with Camy.

      I am beginning to think that she leaked the Seth Macfarlane rumor as well.

  24. Kath says:

    I don’t get how this guy can have been married twice (including one that lasted 8+ years and provided 5 children) and only be 41 years old. Yes, I mean, of course it is technically possible, but he must have started early!

    Also, I’ve noticed that so many people who were 5+ years older than me a decade or so ago (e.g. Heidi Klum) are suddenly only two years older than me?

    Has anyone else noticed this?
