It’s always an interesting scroll on Twitter when Elon Musk is trending, and this time followers were given a sneak peek into his life with his partner Grimes. On July 24, Musk took to social media, tweeting, ‘pronouns suck’, and a few minutes later Indie musician Grimes (real name, Claire Boucher) posted a response. The couple has had ups and downs such as the time Musk had tweeted ‘funding secured’, but this time, people are really wondering if the relationship could be over.
Grimes responded to her partner’s tweet, writing, “I love you but please turn off ur phone or give me a dall [sic]. I cannot support hate. Please stop this. I know this isn’t your heart.” The tweet has since been deleted but not before Twitter users had taken screenshots. It’s funny how quickly the Internet had Musk trending with many tweeting that the couple should break up — and most were supporting Grimes.
“I won’t say I can’t wait for this to crash and burn, but I am excited to see if they signed a prenup. Billionaire Grimes lmao,” wrote one user, with another one adding, “grimes don’t be shy and redistribute elon’s money.” Many encouraged Grimes to leave Musk and get rich as one user added, “grimes divorce elon it’s not too late to come back to us.”
“It must be the baby ugh guys were doomed to break up,” wrote one user in the comment section of one of the posts with the screenshot of the couple’s tweets. Grimes and Musk recently welcomed their first child X Æ A-Xii, and people were wondering if the stress of a new child could be the reason. “Bruhhh grimes leave him already get rich take that robot named baby and LIVE YO LIFE GIRLLLLL!” wrote a user while a sympathetic supporter responded: “Bruh let them beee sometimes we all get too emotional after a fight and f**king tweet!”
The Internet also didn’t failed to notice how “tacky” it was for even “the wokest of the woke” to expose their relationship woes to the internet. One user wrote, “u can tell when grimes and musky are on the other sides of the giant mansion they live in bc they start fighting on twitter,” and another added, “Grimes leaving Elon voicemails like ‘Elon anther the fucking phone you thon of a bi**'”.
This is not the first time where people thought the couple might be in trouble with their relationship as in 2018 Business Insider wrote about how they might “be on the rocks”. This was during the whole “funding secured” tweet incident where Musk’s tweet about tech giant Tesla resulted in an SEC investigation. Back then, the duo had unfollowed each other on the gram, and Musk had even unfollowed Grimes on Twitter.
