However the Musk name is making the news and it has next to nothing to do with Elon. It's actually Elon's estranged father Errol Musk, 72 and his stepsister Jana Bezuidenhout, 30 that are causing a commotion.
Errol and Jana's mother Heidi were married for 18 years and had 2 children together before getting divorced. Jana was 4 when Errol and Hedi were married and was 22 when the couple got divorced.
Errol apparently reconnected with Jana recently while helping her get over a breakup.
He told the Sunday Time, “We were lonely, lost people. One thing led to another — you can call it God’s plan or nature’s plan.”
This plan of god he speaks of is the 10-month-old son he has had with his former stepdaughter.
Elon and his family members have been estranged from their father publicly for some time now.
According to Errol, his daughter Ali did not react well to the news of her half brother saying, “[I] thought she would be supportive and understanding.”
“She said I was insane, mentally ill. She told the others and they went berserk,” he explained. “They think I’m getting senile and should go into an old age home, not have a life full of fun and a tiny baby.”
And back in November 2017 during an interview with Rolling Stone, Elon called his father Errol “a terrible human being.”
“My dad will have a carefully thought-out plan of evil,” the CEO revealed. “He will plan evil.”
He added, “You have no idea about how bad. Almost every crime you can possibly think of, he has done. Almost every evil thing you could possibly think of, he has done.”
At the time of the interview, Errol's baby son was 5 months old and could be the actions that Elon was condemning.
