Timeline of Elon Musk’s Love Life
When Elon Musk met his first wife Justine Wilson while studying at Queen’s University, she was a budding writer. The duo fell in love and in 2000, Musk and Wilson got hitched.
In an interview, Wilson told Marie Claire, “He invited me out for ice cream. I said yes, but then blew him off with a note on my dorm-room door. Several hours later, my head bent over my Spanish text in an overheated room in the student center, I heard a polite cough behind me. Elon was smiling awkwardly, two chocolate-chip ice cream cones dripping down his hands. He’s not a man who takes no for an answer.”
The two had a son together who died due to SIDs within two weeks. The relationship started going downward spiral and Elon Musk’s busy working schedule spelled the end of the marriage in 2008.
Just six weeks after filing for divorce with Wilson, Elon Musk got engaged to the British actress Tallulah Riley. The two got married after two years in 2010 and soon divorced in 2012. The two later remarried in 2013 only to separate again in 2016.
Quite contrary to how one might assume Wilson’s views about Tallulah, the two actually like each other and got along well. Justine found the Inception actress bright and lovely and claimed that she was a better fit for Musk’s lifestyle.
