Court documents recently revealed that the Tesla boss has children with a high-ranking employee. Now Elon Musk is reacting with clear words.
A few hours after the news broke, Musk posted several posts on Twitter – with a clear reference. “I’m doing my best to fight the underpopulation crisis. A collapse in the birth rate is by far the greatest threat to civilization,” wrote the 51-year-old. He also congratulated everyone who has “a large family”.
Back in May, Musk published a graph showing that the average number of babies born to women in the United States fell from more than 3.5 in 1960 to just over 1.5 last year. This is definitely not enough.
Twin mother is Musk’s associate
According to the documents, the twins, who were born in November, are mother to Shivon Zilis, who works as a senior manager at Musk’s brain implant company Neuralink. Accordingly, the 51-year-old and the 36-year-old applied to a Texas court in April to change their names. The babies should “have the father’s last name and the mother’s middle name,” it says. The application was granted in May.
