After breaking up with singer Grimes, the Tesla boss decided to bring his mother to the Met Gala party.
It’s the “+1” that will never let you down. Elon and Maye Musk appeared arm in arm on the red carpet at the 2022 Met Gala, which took place on Monday, May 2, in New York City. To everyone’s surprise, the boss of Space X and Tesla had chosen his mother as a rider during the event which was themed, the American golden age during the 1870s and 1890s.
The businessman, who recently bought Twitter for 44 billion dollars (41 million euros) was dressed in a black tuxedo on a white chimney and a bow tie. As for the 74-year-old model, she wore a red dress in dark velvet, with several pearl necklaces, as well as a white handbag.

This year, it is therefore not his ex-girlfriend, the singer Grimes, who posed with him in front of the cameras. Together, they are the parents of X Æ A-XII, 1 year old and Exa Dark Sideræl, 4 months, yet born after the announcement of their separation. The 50-year-old is also the father of Nevada Alexander (who died aged 10 weeks), twins Griffin and Xavier, 18, and triplets Kai, Saxon and Damian, 16, from his first marriage to Justine Wilson.

No new girlfriend for the evening
Although Elon Musk chose to share this high-profile evening with his mother, he was spotted three months ago on his private jet with Australian actress Natasha Bassett. While neither has confirmed any relationship, a source close to the magazine HollywoodLife said last February: “Elon started dating Natasha shortly after his split with Grimes. At the time, he wasn’t looking for anything serious with anyone and neither was she.” Before outbidding: “They could not deny the incredible chemistry that there was between them, and she is now his girlfriend”. It remains to be seen whether she will accompany Elon Musk to the next MET Gala. No matter what, Maye will always be there.
