Nicole Shanahan Elon Musk: Was There Really An Affair?
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has denied having an affair with Nicole Shanahan, who is married to Sergey Brin, one of the co-founders of Google.
The comments made by Mr. Musk came after it was reported in the Wall Street Journal that his friendship with Mr. Brin had come to an end as a result of the alleged affair.
Mr. Musk replied to the claim as “absolute bs” in response to a link to the piece that was posted on Twitter by someone else. Mr. Musk continued by saying that he and Mr. Brin are still good friends and that the two of them were “at a party together last night!”
The Wall Street Journal reported, citing individuals with knowledge of the situation, that Ms. Shanahan and Mr. Musk were involved in a brief affair toward the end of the previous year.
According to the publication, this led to Mr. Brin filing for divorce early this year, putting an end to the long friendship that had existed between the two high-profile technology millionaires.
But Mr Musk tweeted “I’ve only seen Nicole twice in three years, both times with many other people around. Nothing romantic”.
According to the Wall Street Journal, which cited a person close to Ms. Shanahan as their source, Mr. Brin and his wife were separated but still living together at the time of the alleged affair that took place in December.
In a separate tweet, Mr Musk said “WSJ [Wall Street Journal] has run so many bs hit pieces on me and Tesla I’ve lost count.”
