Elon Musk has split up from Grimes after three years and a baby together.

The SpaceX founder, 50, confirmed the news the couple had “semi-separated” but they remain on “great terms”.

They have continued to co-parent their one-year-old son X Æ A-Xii Musk together.

Their last sighting was earlier this month at the Met Gala where Grimes, 33, tred the red carpet alone and Mr Musk joined her inside the event.

Mr Musk told Page Six: “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms.

“It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room.”

They welcomed their son into the world in May last year.

Their romance first was on the showbiz radar in May 2018.

Prior to Grimes, Mr Musk had a romantic dalliance with Amber Heard but their relationship ended in heartbreak.

In 2017, the Tesla CEO told Rolling Stone: “I just broke up with my girlfriend,. I was really in love, and it hurt bad.”

“I’ve been in severe emotional pain for the last few weeks,” he said.

“Severe. It took every ounce of will to be able to do the Model 3 event and not look like the most depressed guy around. For most of that day, I was morbid. And then I had to psych myself up: drink a couple of Red Bulls, hang out with positive people and then, like, tell myself: ‘I have all these people depending on me. Alright, do it!’”

Mr Musk also shares his first five sons - Griffin, Xavier, Damian, Saxon and Kai - with his first ex-wife Justine Wilson.
