Elon Musk & Grimes are no longer following each other on social media, did they split?

Grimes and Elon Musk have been together for, at most, something like four months. If Azealia Banks was right about them, Elon only needed a date for the Met Gala as some sort of face-saving stunt after he and Amber Heard broke up. Grimes and Elon always insisted that they became friendly because they were both nerdy emo-types and they became friends online first, for what it’s worth. Their relationship has been controversial and weird, even without all of Azealia Banks’ claims about them (Banks is still spilling tea about them too). And now Grimes and Elon might be over?

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and indie musician Grimes appear to have stopped following each other on social media after a difficult week in the spotlight that sent Telsa stock tumbling down nearly 20%. Neither follows the other on Instagram despite publicly interacting on the social media site in June, and Musk unfollowed Grimes on Twitter early Sunday. As of Sunday afternoon, Grimes still follows Musk on Twitter.

It’s unclear whether the pair remains a couple. A spokesman for Musk declined to comment, and a representative for Grimes did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The couple, who reportedly met on Twitter, flirted on the platform, and first made their relationship public at the Met Gala in May, have been a central figure of tech gossip in recent weeks as Musk’s increasingly erratic behavior has caused confusion to Tesla investors and board members alike.

If you believe Azealia, Elon’s erratic behavior might be explained by the fact that Grimes got him into weed and now he gets high all the time and tweets about stock prices, which means that the SEC is investigating him and Azealia Banks’ claim that Grimes is running all over town, telling everyone Elon’s business is probably dead on. But would Elon break up with Grimes over it? I have no idea. Maybe?

    I read somewhere that Tesla’s board had been informed of Elon’s fondness for recreational drugs. How could she “introduce” him to weed? He wasn’t living in the tunnels, he’s just into digging them. Either way, run Grimey, run!

    • Jessie says:

      The board said they were aware he had used recreational drugs. Which isn’t exactly surprising. The guy’s a Burning Man regular, and some of the board has gone there with him. They likely know he’s used recreational drugs because they’ve used recreational drugs with him.

      • Wellsie says:

        Well, there you go. I find the idea of blaming this young woman for his choices absolutely ridiculous.

    Why didn’t my comment go through? I didn’t violate any commenting guidelines.

      Happens to me all the time…

      • Marilyn’s Empty Pill Bottle says:

        Really? It’s so weird. I had some great insight to share too. Bummer. 😂😂

      • somefakename says:

        me too! every time i have something useful to say! because of it i only occasionally come here now ,mostly to see what the same old people are saying over and over. sad.

  3. Jessie says:

    They were/are living together, so no, it wasn’t just about having a date for the Met Gala. One of Grimes texts talks about wanting to have a child with him in a few months. They were really in deep.

    Pretty sure they broke up when Azealia started posting Grimes text’s. There’s been nothing actually bad in there so far, just dumb and embarrassing, but anyone who tells Azealia Banks of all people anything remotely private is a giant liability. Plus if I was Elon I’d be hugely pissed off if my girlfriend didn’t warn me her houseguest was a lunatic who has form for this sort of thing.

    • Steph says:

      Obviously Grimes wanted to get pregnant lol.

    • Aren says:

      This is something I don’t understand, who is Banks and why was she asked to be with them? Is she from a well-connected family? rich?
      All I get when I search for her is gossip. Also, Elon said he didn’t know her, so I don’t understand why everybody assumed what she said was a fact.

      • Marie says:

        She’s a rapper/singer. She and Grimes were going to collab on some music, so Grimes invited her to stay with them in LA. There was a misunderstanding about Grimes and Elon going out of town for a couple of days of Azealia’s trip out there (she was meant to be out there over a week). They left her at the house over the weekend, and within a day she basically melted down and started trashing them. She arrived on Friday and by the time they got back on Sunday she’d called them every name under the sun and left.

        She didn’t meet Elon. They saw each other from a distance in the house for a second on the Friday when she arrived, but then he and Grimes left, and she was gone when they came back.

        She was in their house (well, staying in their guesthouse) and she has some dirt on Grimes via their text conversations, but she hasn’t provided any receipts for any of her juicier claims, and her story has changed a few times. People are ignoring that and her well-earned reputation because they don’t like Musk.

      • Aren says:

        @Marie, oh wow, I understand now.
        Thank you very much.

    • jules says:

      They both give me the heebiejeebies so it’s too bad. They seemed like a good match.

    I think Musk may be having a breakdown. His tweets have been erratic and odd. Like accusing the rescue diver as a pedophile just because he wasn’t impressed by his submarine?

    I laugh at his well-crafted PR image. When he was doing a press tour of his autobiography, his press people were saying that Iron Man was based off him. Like WTF? Iron Man appeared in a Marvel comic in 1963.

    • Marie says:

      It was a biography, not an autobiography, and Musk didn’t do press for it.

      When making the Iron Man movie both RDJ and Jon Favreau met with Musk and spent time in his factories, and they did base some things on him and on SpaceX/Tesla. He even has a cameo as himself in the second film.

    Justine, wherever you are, you get a lawyer, girl. He’s admitted to work all day and night and doing drugs, so I’m not sure whose watching all 5 boys, but probably the nannies. They are better off with mom.

    • Marie says:

      He’s had more than 50% physical custody for a decade now, and his kids are 12 and 14. Unless they choose not to live with him or he’s putting them in danger, him losing custody isn’t happening. If people in LA lost custody because of Ambien and weed, half the city would lose their kids.

      By all accounts, even Justine’s, he’s completely devoted to his kids. They go with him pretty much everywhere and their school is inside SpaceX.

      • Millenial says:

        I definitely think he’s on something more serious that Ambien and weed. Even if that were the case, it’s clearly interfering with his daily life.

    • Kate says:

      I remember reading Justine’s blog back in the day. She was refreshingly open about all the help they had, all the time their kids were with nannies, and I remember she said she wouldn’t have had children if she hadn’t been able to afford that kind of lifestyle. She was totally unashamed about that, so no reason to think she’d take issue with Elon using nannies a lot.

  6. Amelie says:

    I’ve always thought Elon Musk is weird, but not irresponsible enough to tweet random things while high and to send his own company stock plunging. I think it’s so random Azealia Banks is the one contributing to his “downfall” of sorts. I wish Amber Heard would spill the tea on her relationship with Elon, I feel like she probably saw a lot of this erratic behavior which may be why they broke up.

    • LOL says:

      Amber was with a full schedule and had aquaman and parts in other movies, she was working a lot, Grimes on other hand was always with him and engaging in justifying his erratic behavior via Twitter.
      I think that amber has a lot of inside information on him too, but I doubt she would say something or share informations with someone like Azealia Banks ( her Instagram stories are hilarious about this mess, but that girl is completely crazy).

  7. Jess says:

    Of course he’s going to break up with her and blame her for all of this, my god what a wonderful mess this is, lol. I’ve been following the drama, so much fun getting the inside scoop with those screenshots. Banks is really calling them out, love it.

  8. Rae says:

    I still can’t get my head around these two being together.

  9. Pandy says:

    Not sure who Grimes is but laughing at her goth girl get up. She should be dating Marilyn Manson with that look.
