Grimes broke his silence over his separation from Elon Musk.

Days after Musk, 50, confirmed their split, Grimes, 33, real name Claire Elise Boucher, joked that she had plans out of this world.

“I will colonize [one of Jupiter’s moons] Europa separately from Elon for the lesbian space community, ”the Canadian musician told Page Six via email when asked about their separation.

Grimes’ response appears to refer to Musk and his company SpaceX’s $ 178 million contract with NASA to help the latter reach Jupiter’s ice-covered moon, Europa, to determine if it can harbor suitable conditions. to life, the outlet noted. The planet has 79 moons.

The Tesla CEO confirmed last week that he and Grimes were “semi-separated” but remained on good terms. He also stated that they would continue to co-parent their 1 year old son, X Æ A-Xii.

“We’re half apart but we still love each other, see each other frequently and are on good terms,” Musk told Page Six on Friday. “It’s mainly that my job at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be mostly in Texas or traveling overseas and her job is mostly in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the next room.”

Earlier this month, Musk attended a party hosted by Google co-founder Sergey Brin’s wife Nicole Shanahan on her own, Page Six noted. Meanwhile, artist “Oblivion” is busy filming the Fox competition show “Alter Ego”, where she is a judge.

Musk and Grimes started dating in 2018. They welcomed their son in May 2020.

In a recent interview with Vogue, Grimes shared that her son called her by first name, Claire, rather than mom or mum.

“I think having a baby has been a big rebirth for me, as artistically,” she said. “Being a mother is weird to say. For some reason I don’t identify with that word.”

She continued, “Which is also very weird because X, he says ‘Claire’ but he doesn’t say ‘mum’. Which is so … I’m like, ‘How are you …?’ Like, maybe he can sense my loathing for the word “mother”.

Grimes also admitted in a previous interview that she felt like she was sacrificing her power when she had “unprotected sex” with Musk, because for her to get pregnant is to sacrifice her body and her freedom. .

“I actually really really love my boyfriend. So I was like, ‘You know sure,'” she told Rolling Stone of Musk. “He’s just really good at deterring me from my bulls – t. I’ve learned a lot about controlling my state of mind.”
