Elon Musk told first wife at their wedding: ‘I’m the alpha’


Elon Musk told his first wife as they danced at their wedding that he was “the alpha on this relationship,” in response to a 2010 essay that has attracted renewed interest because it was learned that the Tesla boss paid $250,000 in hush money to settle sex misconduct claims.

Justine Musk wrote about her 2008 divorce from Musk in a bit for Marie Claire that was titled “I Was a Starter Wife.”

Within the essay, the Canadian writer, who’s mother to 5 of Musk’s children, wrote that she became the tech mogul’s “trophy wife.”

During their first dance at the marriage reception, Justine Musk wrote that her husband whispered to her: “I’m the alpha on this relationship.”

“I shrugged it off, just as I’d later shrug off signing the postnuptial agreement, but as time went on, I learned that he was serious,” Justine Musk wrote.

“He had grown up within the male-dominated culture of South Africa, and the need to compete and dominate that made him so successful in business didn’t magically shut off when he got here home.”

Justine Musk first met Elon Musk after they were college students at Queens University in the Canadian town of Kingston, Ontario.

In January 2000, they wed after moving to Silicon Valley, where Elon Musk became a multimillionaire after selling the web startup Zip2 for $20 million.

Justine Musk wrote that “the vast economic imbalance between us, meant that within the months following our wedding, a certain dynamic began to take hold.”

“Elon’s judgment overruled mine, and he was consistently remarking on the ways he found me lacking,” Justine Musk wrote.

“‘I’m your wife’, I told him repeatedly, ‘not your worker’.”

Based on Justine Musk, Elon replied: “When you were my worker, I’d fire you.”

The couple welcomed their first son, Nevada Alexander Musk, in 2002, but lost him to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) at 10 weeks old.

The couple went on to have a set of twins — Griffin and Xavier Musk — in 2004 and a set of triplets — Kai, Saxon and Damian Musk — in 2006, a complete of 5 children.

Six weeks after filing he filed for divorce from Justine Musk, Elon Musk got engaged to British actress Talulah Riley. The 2 would go on to get married in 2010.

The couple hit a rough patch in 2014 after they divorced at Elon’s request for the primary time. The pair reconciled and remarried 18 months later, just for Riley to file for divorce in 2016.

Later that very same 12 months, Elon Musk began dating Amber Heard shortly after the “Aquaman” actress divorced Johnny Depp.

Unfortunately, she and Musk split after only one 12 months resulting from their intense schedules.

Musk went on to tell Rolling Stone in November 2017 that the split was quite difficult for him, adding he was “really in love, and it hurt bad.”

Musk began dating musician Grimes in April 2018, one month before the couple made their red carpet debut on the Met Gala.

Grimes and Elon welcomed son X Æ A-12 in May 2020, engaging in a Twitter discussion over the name’s pronunciation while the singer recovered from giving birth.

After three years together, the couple split, with Musk confirming via social media that he and the Canadian songstress are “semi-separated” but remain on good terms and proceed to co-parent their 1-year-old son.

“We’re semi-separated but still love one another, see one another ceaselessly and are on great terms,” Musk told us.

In her Vanity Fair cover story released in March 2022, Grimes confirmed the pair were back together after rumors he was dating Australian actress Natasha Bassett. She also revealed she secretly welcomed a second child, a baby girl named Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, via surrogate in December 2021.

Hours after the story was released, she revealed that they had broken up again.
