Elon Musk Wife and Girlfriend List
Elon Musk First Tryst with Romance (first wife Justine Musk, 2000 – 2008)
Justine Musk was the entrepreneur’s first wife and it was love at first sight when the couple met while they were studying. It is said that teen love is instantaneous and the romance between the cupid-stricken couple was no different. The couple married in 2000 and shifted to Los Angeles. Their first child, unfortunately, died when he was only 10 weeks old.
The couple went on to have five children, which included twins Griffin, Xavier, and triplets Damian, Saxon, and Kai.
Difference cropped up when the rumors about Musk’s alleged escapades surfaced in the paparazzi. The couple officially separated in 2008. The then Elon Musk wife once had caustically remarked that he was a sort of starter and also alleged that Musk had treated him as disposable.
Moving On Elon Musk’s second wife Talulah Riley, 2010-2016
Within months after his divorce from Justine, Elon found solace with British Actress Talulah Riley and after a brief period of courtship, finally got married in 2010. The marriage lasted for just two years and the two got divorced in 2012. However, the story becomes interesting here. The couple again remarried in 2013 but Elon applied for separation in 2014 which he withdrew later. However, the pressure soon took a toll on the couple’s relationship and ultimately in 2016, the 2nd Elon Musk wife filed for divorce. However, unlike his first divorce, the couple’s relations remain cordial even after the divorce, and both respect and speak very highly of each other.
Elon Musk Girlfriend Amber Heard, 2017-2018
It was one of the shortest relationships if that is the name of this association which saw Musk paying Amber’s pledged payments to the ACLU which Amber had to pay after receiving a hefty amount as settlement after her abusive divorce settlement from Johnny Depp.
A lot has been said about the alleged payments made by Musk which was also acknowledged by Amber Heard. Musk was also absent in the long and messy divorce proceedings between the estranged couple and was also not summoned to testify.

The relationship went a step higher when the couple welcomed their son in 2020 and named him X Æ A-Xii. Now no one can understand the logic of Musk naming his offspring strangely. However, the story had many more twists as the couple split in 2021 and everyone thought that was the end of the story.
However, this was not to be and in December 2021 the couple announced they are going to welcome a baby girl born out of surrogacy.
