When he tells his legend, Elon Musk sometimes omits important details. For example, he absolutely wouldn’t live in a $50,000 prefab, as he claimed on Twitter. Explanations.
Elon Musk will pay $11 billion in taxes
A gigantic mansion…
Elon Musk is battling Jeff Bezos in the race to be the richest man in the world. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO, unlike his Amazon founding counterpart, would live much more modestly. While Jeff Bezos shelled out $175 million on a huge mansion this year, Elon Musk reportedly for main residence a mobile home of 50,000 dollars located in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic. In addition, a portrait dedicated to him appeared in the magazine Time begins with these words: “The richest man in the world owns no house. »
Widely relayed in the press, this information revealed to build its legend is in truth false. As we learn wall street journal, Elon Musk would live discreetly in the greatest luxury by occupying a mansion of Ken Howery, the co-founder of PayPal, a company in which the eccentric entrepreneur was a key figure. Built near Austin, Texas – which became Elon Musk’s adopted land for mainly tax reasons, this home would quite simply be the most expensive in the state, estimated at $12 million.
the wall street journal details the arrangement by explaining that Ken Howery is currently busy chasing weather phenomena since the end of his mission as Swedish ambassador. Some of his friends would not even know that Elon Musk would occupy this luxury house. As a bonus, the American newspaper suggests that the latter would currently be looking for a new expensive home, still in Texas. He would also have visited some properties without having yet decided.
Elon Musk denied the allegations of wall street journal while Ken Howery would have replied to the article that his friend would occupy his residence only very occasionally.
