Tech mogul Elon Musk dismissed Sunday reports that he had an affair with Sergey Brin and Nicole Shanahan, allegedly causing the couple to split up.
In response to online rumors about the affair, Musk submitted a photo of himself and Brin hanging out to the New York Post over the weekend. According to the outlet, Musk allegedly replied the claims are “complete BS” and added that he hasn’t “even had sex in ages (sigh).”
In January 2022, Brin and Shanahan announced their separation, claiming “irreconcilable differences” as the cause. The NY Post highlighted that the pair had divorced in December 2021, which was also the month that The Wall Street Journal said Musk and Shanahan had an affair.

According to the news source, Musk emailed the NY Post and said, “Nicole and Sergey’s divorce has absolutely nothing to do with me. I am sure both Nicole and Sergey would confirm that. I spoke with both Sergey and Nicole about this and they say the story isn’t coming from them, so [it] must be a case of broken telephone, two or three layers removed.”
