Recently, Elon Musk became involved in yet another issue, this one involving the ex-wife of Sergey Brin, a co-founder of Google.
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, is frequently the subject of disputes and rumors connected to his personal life. This time, rumors that he briefly had an affair with Sergey Brin’s ex-wife have caused a fight.
Elon Musk denied the rumors and expressed his dissatisfaction, saying that the amount of attention being paid to him is “supernova” and that he intended to be “heads down” and concentrated on his work in order to do “useful things for civilization.”
Elon Musk expressed his disappointment on Twitter by writing, “The amount of attention on me has gone supernova, which totally sucks. Unfortunately, a lot of people click on even minor stories about me:( I’ll do my best to keep my head down and concentrate on contributing to society.
It’s really annoying how much more focus there is on me now. Unfortunately, a lot of people click on even insignificant stories about me:(

This occurs only a day after media reports suggested that Musk had a brief liaison with Sergey Brin’s wife. Following the rumors, sources said that after learning about the romance, Brin had told his advisors to divest assets in Musk’s enterprises.
The Tesla CEO tweeted, denying the allegations, “This is total bs. Sergey and I are friends and were at a party together last night! I’ve only seen Nicole twice in three years, both times with many other people around. Nothing romantic.”
The incident is set against the backdrop of the legal dispute between Twitter and Elon Musk regarding their USD 44 billion proposals to purchase the firm, following which Musk is said to have backed out of the contract.
Elon Musk has also claimed that Twitter has been using a lot of fictitious profiles to make “misleading” claims about him in an effort to harm his image. In response, Twitter sued the creator of SpaceX for allegedly breaking the agreement made between the two parties, according to the court documents.
