Elon Musk was convinced that his ex-girlfriend was not real

As popular as it is influential, Elon Musk is considered by many to be a genius. But wouldn’t he be a bit crazy? This crazy theory about his ex-girlfriend, Grimesis in any case perplexing.

Elon Musk: the cliché of the slightly crazy genius

The most ambitious and intelligent people who populate our planet are often seen as a bit crazy, living in their own universe. And when we dwell on the case of the richest man in the world, Elon Musk, it is difficult to think otherwise. A real troll on Twitter, the man sometimes seems to act completely disconnected from reality, as evidenced by the strange names worn by his children.

Given the influence of the CEO of Tesla and Space X, it seems paradoxically obvious that he knows perfectly well what he is doing. So, maybe we should believe him when he is convinced that Grimes, his ex-girlfriend (from 2018 to 2021) with whom he had two children, does not really exist and would only be one “simulation” created by his brain. When he was still in a relationship with her, it was in any case his intimate conviction, according to the author and journalist of Vanity Fair, Devin Gordon.

Grimes, an artist created from scratch by Elon Musk?

The BBC is currently broadcasting a documentary series, The Elon Musk Showdedicated to the multi-billionaire. The latest episode dwells at length on the relationship between him and his ex-girlfriend, Grimes, a 34-year-old singer-songwriter particularly known for electronic influences in her music. Interviewed on this occasion, the journalist Devin Gordon, who exchanges regularly with the singer, affirms that this one repeated to him on several occasions that Musk was sure she wasn’t real…and she agreed with that statement.

[Grimes] told me regularly that Musk has this theory that she’s not real, that she’s a simulation he created that exists in his cerebral cortex. as a kind of perfect companion for him. Sounds a little crazy and maybe even a little creepy, except she agrees [cette théorie]. She was saying that she really feels like this simulation that was perfectly created for him. Devin Gordon

When we know the involvement of Claire Elise Boucher, her real name, for everything related to electronics, and especially Elon Musk’s passion for new technologies, we say to ourselves that the duo could well be convinced that this crazy theory is real. Perhaps our vision is simply too narrow to see reality in the face? Do not hesitate to tell us what you think of this strange case in the comments!
