Elon Musk reportedly had an affair with the wife of Google co-founder and Tesla investor Sergey Brin which led to the falling out between the longtime friends.
However, Tesla CEO has denied such reports first published by The Wall Street Journal yesterday (July 24, 2022), reports Insider.
According to the WSJ report, Musk had a brief affair with Brin's wife Nicole Shanahan in December which led to the divorce of Shanahan and Brin in January.
Musk responded to a tweet that linked to WSJ's report.
"This is total bs. Sergey and I are friends and were at a party together last night!" Musk wrote. "I've only seen Nicole twice in three years, both times with many other people around. Nothing romantic," he wrote.
In a follow-up response, Musk added: "Haven't even had sex in ages (sigh)."
In another tweet, he added that "the character assassination attacks have reached a new level this year, but the articles are all nothing-burgers."
"I work crazy hours, so there just isn't much time for shenanigans," he said.
Musk also criticized The Journal saying it is "supposed to have a high standard for journalism.
But right now, it is like a "tabloid," he wrote.
"WSJ should be running stories that actually matter to their readers and have solid factual basis, not third-party random hearsay," he said.
