Grimes jokes about a ‘lesbian space community’ amid Elon Musk split
Some couples divide property after they separate. Elon Musk and Grimes share the space.
Grimes exclusively told Page Six via email, “I’m going to colonize [one of Jupiter’s moons] Europa separately from Elon for the lesbian space community.
The ironic answer seems to refer to Musk and SpaceX’s $178 million deal with NASA to help them reach Jupiter’s ice-crusted moon Europa to see if it might be habitable. The planet has 79 moons.
On Friday, Page Six exclusively revealed that Musk and Grimes are stepping down after three years together, but are continuing to co-parent one-year-old son X Æ A-Xii.
“We are half separated but we still love each other, see each other frequently and are on good terms,” Musk, 50, told us.
“It’s mostly that my job at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be mostly in Texas or traveling overseas and her job is mostly in Los Angeles. She stays with me now and baby X is in the adjoining room.
In March, Grimes, 33, who now appears as a judge on the Fox competition show “Alter Ego,” said she wanted to help Musk colonize Mars.
“Ready to die with the red earth of Mars under my feet”, she posted on Instagram from the Starbase launch site in Texas.
She also said she would move to the dusty planet after the age of 50 and do “manual labor until death”, adding, “but hopefully that can change”.
In an interview, she said she would like to “make my consciousness live in some kind of humanoid vessel that can talk and move freely, and then that body can go to Mars and other planets with my spirit inside.”
Musk’s mission with his company SpaceX is to bring humans to the Red Planet by 2026.
