(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Tesla CEO Elon Musk had an affair with the wife of his friend Sergey Brin, the co-founder of Google’s parent company, Alphabet, and Musk vehemently denied the claim.
In its report, the Journal said Brin’s divorce from his wife Nicole Shanahan was prompted by Shanahan’s affair with Musk. It claimed that the affair not only ended their marriage but also ended the friendship between Musk and Brin.
After the report came out, Musk wrote on Twitter that he had only seen Nicole Shanahan twice in the last three years and it was always around other people. He flatly stated there was nothing romantic between them.
The Tesla CEO then attacked the Wall Street Journal, saying the outlet “has run so man bs hit pieces on me and Tesla I’ve lost count!”
Musk also told the New York Post that Brin and Shanahan’s divorce had nothing to do with him and he was certain both of them would confirm that. After the Journal’s story came out, Musk said he called both Brin and Shanahan who said the “scoop” didn’t come from them.
Musk told the Post that the Journal story “must be a case of broken telephone, two or three layers removed.”
Meanwhile, Sawyer Merritt posted a photo of Musk and Brin on Twitter which he said Musk had given the New York Post as proof that the story was false.
Musk replied to the tweet saying, “A picture is worth 1000 tweets.” In a second reply, Musk noted that the picture had been taken the previous day.
