Billionaire Elon Musk says that his garage is an acceptable place for his mother to remain when she visits him in Texas.
Maye Musk, 74, revealed the less-than-luxurious sleeping arrangements at SpaceX’s Starbase in a recent interview.
“Yes, but I’ve done lots with the place!” the world’s richest person replied in response to a Recent York Post tweet about it.
Mr Musk, who has a private wealth of $251bn, announced earlier this 12 months that he had sold off all of his residential properties following his move from California to Texas.
The entrepreneur said that he was giving up all his material possessions to devote himself “to Mars and Earth.”
The billionaire now primarily lives in a $50,000 rental home near the SpaceX facility at Boca Chica, Texas, and says he also stays within the spare room at friends’ homes.
Ms Musk, who has worked as a model for five many years, told UK newspaper The Times that her son was not curious about possessions “in any respect” and that when she visits she has to “sleep within the garage.”
“You possibly can’t have a flowery house near a rocket site,” she told the newspaper.
