Grimes is doing a very Grimes thing after Elon Musk split and creating a ‘lesbian space commune’

Grimes has spoken out in the aftermath of her split with Tesla CEO Elon Musk, joking that she’ll be setting up a ‘lesbian space commune’ – and are we surprised?

Following 50-year-old Elon confirming on Friday that the couple had ‘semi-separated’, the musician offered her public comment on the matter.

In an email to Page Six on Monday she wrote: ‘I’ll be colonizing [one of Jupiter’s moons] Europa separately from Elon for the lesbian space commune.’

It certainly ranks highly in the more imaginative celebrity comments on relationship splits, and also appears to be a humorous reference to her ex-partner’s company SpaceX’s $178 million (£131m) contract with NASA, which focuses on icy Europa’s conditions and if it could be habitable.

We probably shouldn’t be surprised at all anyway, seeing as it comes from a woman who recently revealed her son calls her by her fist name (which is Claire, by the way), because she ‘doesn’t identify’ with the word ‘mother’.

The couple, who went public in May 2018, share 16-month-old son X Æ A-Xii, and will focus on co-parenting him together.

In his statement to Page Six, billionaire Elon said: ‘We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms.’

He also blamed work schedules on keeping them apart, with Elon being based ‘primarily in Texas or travelling overseas’ with SpaceX and Tesla, and Grimes mainly based in LA.

Proving that they remain friendly, Elon added: ‘She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room.’ 

The pair were seen together in New York City after the Met Gala just two weeks ago, where Grimes showcased a futuristic look complete with sword, as well as enjoying a holiday in Florence together in August, where they enjoyed a private trip to the Uffizi Galleries, followed by dinner at Buca Mario restaurant.

Elon has previously been married three times, first to author Justine Wilson, with whom he has 17-year-old twins Griffin and Xavier and triplets Damian, Saxon and Kai, 15, and twice to British actress Talulah Riley.

They first tied the knot in 2010 before divorcing two years later, and then married again in 2013 before a second divorce in 2016.
