According to a Wall Street Journal report, Elon Musk allegedly ended a long-standing friendship with Google co-founder Sergey Brin after having an affair with his wife, Nicole Shanahan. The couple filed for divorce earlier this year, according to sources with knowledge of the matter, alleging "irreconcilable disagreements."


Musk and Shanahan are said to have started dating after Musk broke up with Claire Boucher, widely known as Grimes, at the prestigious Art Basel event in Miami. According to sources, Brin and Shanahan were still cohabitating at the time even though they were no longer married. According to reports, the couple's relationship was stressed by problems involving the COVID-19 lockdowns and their three-year-old daughter.

Even as the richest man in the world tries to back out of his $44 billion deal to buy Twitter, Musk's personal life and business are inextricably linked. According to an Insider article from earlier this month, Musk and Shivon Zillis, a senior executive at his company Neuralink and a former Tesla worker, had twins. The twins arrived just a few weeks before Musk and Boucher's second child, who made Musk the father of nine children overall, was born via surrogate.


A former SpaceX flight attendant claimed in May that the firm had paid her $250,000 to stay quiet about a Musk-related incident. Musk allegedly exposed himself to the woman, asked for a massage from her, and then asked her out on a date.

As for Brin, Heather Cairns, the human resources manager at Google, once referred to him as "the Google playboy" because of his sexual relationships with staff members. Brin's romance with Google Glass marketing manager Amanda Rosenberg, which took place while he was still married to 23andMe co-creator Anne Wojcicki and she was dating another Google executive, was described in a 2014 Vanity Fair article. Brin and Wojcicki split in 2015, and in 2018, Brin secretly wed Shanahan. According to the WSJ, Shanahan is reportedly asking for a portion of Brin's approximately $100 billion fortune worth over $1 billion as part of the divorce settlement.


The report goes into depth about how close friends Brin and Musk had become. During the 2008 financial crisis, Brin donated $500,000 to Musk's Tesla, and in 2015, Musk gave back by making Brin one of the first people to purchase a Model X. According to sources, Musk went so far as to ask Brin for forgiveness at a party earlier this year, getting down on one knee. According to the story, Brin has instructed advisers to liquidate his personal holdings in Musk's companies and the two still don't speak much.
