Elon Musk and his mom Maye had a sweet mother-son bonding moment on the red carpet for the 2022 Met Gala. The 50-year-old entrepreneur, who recently bought Twitter for $44 billion, opted to bring his 74-year-old mother along for the high-profile party on Monday, May 2. Bringing his mom to the annual ball came almost three months after he was spotted with actress Natasha Bassett getting a ride on his private jet.
Elon sported a simple black tuxedo with a white shirt and matching bowtie. His mom, who is also a Canadian-South African model, sported a dark velvet, red dress, with a number of pearl necklaces dangling, as she carried a small white purse. She also had a matching flower sitting on the pearl necklace and a matching pair of earrings for the evening.
Elon bringing his mom was a surprise, months after his split from singer Grimes was confirmed by her on Twitter in March. Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher had revealed that the former couple had had a daughter Exa Dark Sideræl Muskaby (the couple also have a son X Æ A-Xii) via surrogate in a March interview. After the interview was published, Grimes revealed that the couple had split up.
Since the couple split, Elon has been seen spending time with Natasha Bassett, an Australian actress. A source close to the couple revealed to HollywoodLife exclusively that the pair have had a great connection since getting together. “Elon started seeing Natasha shortly after his split from Grimes, but it was very casual. He was not looking for anything serious with anyone at the time and neither was she. But they couldn’t deny the unbelievable chemistry between them, and they still can’t. She is now very much his girlfriend,” they said in February.
