Elon Musk & Grimes' Relationship Timeline Starts With Them Meeting On Twitter 2 Years Ago
This couple is anything but ordinary!
Maybe finding love on social media is possible! Since they first went public two years ago, Elon Musk and Grimes’ relationship has been a hot topic in celebrity news. The unlikely duo has stuck together despite doubt from outsiders and even recently welcomed their first child together.
According to Page Six, the couple first connected over Twitter, when Musk found out that the Canadian singer had previously made a joke about Rococo Basilisk. The Tesla CEO was looking into joking about the artificial intelligence experiment himself, and reached out to Grimes for her opinion on the matter.
“Grimes said this was the first time in three years that anyone understood the joke. They were both poking fun at AI,” a source told Page Six.
The first Monday in May is widely known as the day that the annual Met Gala is hosted, but in 2018, it was also the day that Musk and Grimes made their red carpet debut as a couple. Before showing off their elaborate outfits, the 48-year-old posted a simple but clever tweet, referring to the couple’s inside joke.
Business Insider reports that the couple appears to have gone through some sort of riff late in the summer of 2018, as both parties unfollowed one another on Instagram. In October of the same year, however, the SpaceX CEO re-followed Grimes on social media.
After a brief bout of drama, things seemed to be going well for the couple. In a March 2019 interview with the Wall Street Journal, the “Oblivion” singer opened up about how the public scrutiny she’s dealt with while dating Musk has been difficult.
“I just thought I could keep going along in my funny little way, and then you casually respond to someone in a tweet and it’s on Fox News, and you’re like, ‘Ugh,’ you know? That was a very disturbing moment,” the 32-year-old explained.
In December of the same year, Business Insider reported that Musk gave Grimes a standing ovation after her performance at the 2019 Game Awards.
Later that month, the couple made an appearance at Kim Kardashian-West’s annual Christmas party and even posed for a photo with Travis Scott, Saweetie, Quavo, Kanye West, and Kardashian.
After the new year rolled around, it wasn’t long until Grimes shocked the internet again, posting what is arguably one of the most controversial and unusualof all time.
There was some speculation floating around as to whether or not Musk was the father of the singer’s unborn baby but in a March interview with Rolling Stone, the Vancouver born star that her 48-year-old boyfriend is the father.
Just when all seemed to be well, trouble in paradise struck again near the end of the month. According to Business Insider, Musk unfollowed Grimes on March 28, only to follow her once again on March 30.
In most recent news, the engineer revealed on his Twitter page that Grimes hadto their child and that both she and the baby were doing well.
The new mother has been silent on social media since Musk shared the news of their latest addition to the family. The couple has yet to reveal the name of their son, but if their eccentric personalities are any indication, the baby is sure to have an unforgettable name.
