Elon Musk and Grimes have broken up, sort of.
"We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms,” Musk exclusively revealed to Page Six. "It's mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in L.A. She's staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room."
Grimes, 33, and Musk, 50, first met over Twitter—the most relatable aspect of their relationship—and Page Six reported in May 2018 that the musician (born Claire Boucher) and the entrepreneurial billionaire were "quietly dating." They welcomed their first child, a son named X Æ A-12 Musk, in May 2020:

The announcement included a full breakdown of the baby's name from Grimes:
•X, the unknown variable ⚔️— Miss Information (@Grimezsz) May 6, 2020
•Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)
•A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent
(A=Archangel, my favorite song)
