Who is Elon Musk Dating: A Guide To All The Girlfriends He Has Dated or Married

It is lonely at the top, true, but not for everyone; only for those who were lonely at the bottom. Elon Musk’s personal life has been rocky at times from his early life in a broken home and having to live with an emotionally abusive father to several supposed trial and error relationships. He pioneers technology that promises to change the world but it seems that maintaining a relationship is a rather difficult task to combine with his world-transforming inventions. Here’s a look into the romantic relationships of the Tesla and SpaceX founder; a guide through Elon Musk’s dating life.


Elon Musk has been head deep into innovations and inventions such as space launch vehicles company, SpaceX, electric car manufacturing company; Tesla, a concept of high-speed transportation system called Hyperloop among others. His many goals in making the world a better place also include reducing global warming, with his latest venture being to inhabit outer space in order to reduce the risk of human extinction. The South African born American investor is simply a rarity, one who comes around only a few times in a century.

As beautiful as his world may look viewing it from his plethora of contributions to making life easier for mankind, he still seems not to have found what his soul craves for, someone to call home- a companion and a soulmate. The ever-evolving businessman has not only had numerous business ventures hinged on the aim of changing the world, he has also had many relationships. So far, he has been in five relationships, with four different people. However, it seems there is something his multi-billion dollar investment could not get him yet, a secure and happy relationship.

Musk grew up with his face buried in books while falling prey to severe bullying as a child. To make the pains worse, his parents separated leaving him lonely in the care of his father who he described as emotionally abusive. Though living with his father was a choice he took of his own accord, he regretted that and labeled those years as the worst years of his life. He grew up never wanting to be alone and supposedly loathes any situation that could bring about such.

To get a better view of his inside life and probably a better understanding of his statement to Rolling Stone, “If I’m not in love, if I’m not with a long-term companion, I cannot be happy,” let’s explore the dating history of the super-investor through this Elon Musk dating guide.

A Guide To All The Girlfriends He Has Dated or Married

Justine Wilson

While he was pursuing a degree in Queen’s University, Ontario, Musk met Canadian author, Justine Wilson, a fellow student who would later become his wife. The duo got married in 2000 and had six children, all boys, including their first son, Nevada Alexander who died in 2002 from SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) at only 10 weeks old. The other five were born through in vitro fertilization (IVF) and include twins: Xavier and Griffin born in 2004 and triplets: Damian, Kai, and Saxon born in 2006. Unfortunately, their marriage was not meant to last a lifetime as they took the lonely road to separation in 2008 calling it quits on their union of almost a decade.

Not wanting to be alone, the billionaire investor tried marriage a second time with the hope of finding that for which his heart craves. He began dating British actress Talulah Riley in 2008. They tied the knot in 2010 and went their separate ways two years later.

Nevertheless, the gulf was not to be left unbridged for a long time as they walked the marriage avenue a second time. The duo remarried in July 2013 but filed for a divorce in December 2014. Maybe they didn’t find what they wanted anyway. Or maybe, they did. They withdrew the action shortly after before the duo finally called time on their pairing in 2016.

With this, one could think the business mogul wouldn’t try love again. But that could only be a farce as he is known to have a sensitive soul. One may be left to wonder if this genius couldn’t find love, what hope is there for the rest of us at this thing called love. But he did find love again, this time with Johnny Depp‘s former wife, actress Amber Heard. Yeah, you can say that there is hope then for us.
