After the Twitter fallout, now Elon Musk is falling out of friendship with Google Co-Founder Sergey Brin. According to the Wall Street Journal, Sergey Brin filed for a divorce at the beginning of this year with his wife Nicole Shanahan after finding out about their fling.
After facing a court trial because of the whole ‘Twitter-to-buy-or-to-not’ scenario, it seems Mr. Musk is juggling many personal and professional issues. On hearing about the affair, Mr. Sergey Brin also asked his financial advisors to sell his investments in Musk’s company.
Their long-term friendship dates back to 2008 when Mr.Brin helped him with $500,000 for Tesla during the financial crisis. Mr.Musk also gave Mr.Brin one of the first electric sports utility vehicles of Tesla. And recently, after the whole situation, there has been some tension between the friends.

According to the Bloomberg Billionaire’s Index, Elon Musk is the world’s richest man with a $242 billion fortune. While Sergey Brin has a net worth of $94.6 billion, being the eighth-wealthiest man.
Now, the Tesla owner took to his favorite place, Twitter to react to this alleged affair. Mr. Musk said, “This is total bs. Sergey and I are friends and were at a party together last night! I’ve only seen Nicole twice in three years, both times with many other people around. Nothing romantic.” He also tweeted in another reply, “Haven’t even had sex in ages (sigh).”
According to people who are familiar with the matter and the WSJ report, this liasion happened between the two at the Art Basel Event in Miami in early December 2021. This was a few months after Mr. Musk’s breakup with Grimes made the news.
This isn’t new that Musk has mixed his business with pleasure. Recently, Musk became the father to twins of a senior executive at Neuralink, according to reports. Musk was alleged to have sexually harassed a Tesla employee, for which he had to pay $250,000 in a settlement.
