Elon Musk, the richest person in the world, lives “below the poverty line”, as revealed by his ex-partner Grimes in a recent interview with Vanity Fair magazine. The singer, who has two children together with the South African tycoon, has spoken about her life before and after meeting Musk, and assures that, even though “she was deeply on the extreme left” and became a “capitalist democrat When he began his relationship with the tycoon, he really “does not live like a billionaire.”

In the interview, Grimes tells a curious anecdote about an old and damaged mattress that the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX had in his Los Angeles home. He claims that Elon Musk refused to buy a new mattress even though it had a hole in the side where she slept. Instead, he proposed to replace it with the one the singer had in her house.

“The guy (referring to Musk) lives below the poverty line sometimes. To the point where I was like: can we not live in a very insecure $40,000 house? Where do the neighbors record us, and we don’t Is there security, and where am I eating peanut butter for eight days in a row?

Curiously, Elon Musk himself, who according to Forbes has a net worth of more than 220,000 million dollars, has on occasion boasted of his “humble” life and, specifically, of his only residential home: a prefabricated house of 50,000 dollars that the tycoon has in Boca Chica, on land that he rents from SpaceX. He has another house in the Bay Area, but he only uses it “for events.” The businessman has also been seen eating a spiropapa at a Mexican fair in Texas, like any other citizen. If it wasn’t, yes, because he and his son were surrounded by five bodyguards.
