Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has denied having an affair with Nicole Shanahan, the spouse of Sergey Brin, a co-founder of Google.
Following the news that his friendship with Mr. Brin had soured over the alleged affair, Mr. Musk made his remarks.
Mr. Musk called the study “complete BS” in response to a tweet that contained a link to the article.
They were “at a party together last night,” continued Mr. Musk, adding that they are still close friends.
The lengthy friendship between the two well-known technology millionaires came to an end as a result, according to a report, which led Mr. Brin to file for divorce early this year.
However, Mr. Musk wrote, “In three years, Nicole and I have only met twice, and both times, there were many other people there.” “Nothing sentimental”.
Despite having a prenuptial agreement, Mr. Brin and Ms. Shanahan are currently negotiating a divorce settlement that could total $1 billion (£830 million), according to the newspaper.
According to her LinkedIn page, Ms. Shanahan is an attorney based in California and the founder of the Bia-Echo Foundation and legal technology startup ClearAccessIP.
Mr. Musk, who also serves as the CEO of the rocket company SpaceX, is well known for the way he runs his several businesses, but he has also sparked curiosity in his personal life by the media.
This information came to light a few weeks after it was discovered that his daughter Vivian was trying to break things up with him and that she no longer wanted to “be linked with my biological father in any way, shape, or form.”
Mr. Musk is currently embroiled in a legal dispute over his botched $44 billion acquisition of Twitter.
After he announced he was giving up his desire to buy the business, the social networking platform sued him earlier this month.
Mr. Musk has the greatest estimated fortune in the world, valued at more than $240 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
According to the same ranking, Mr. Brin has an estimated net worth of $95 billion, making him the seventh richest person in the world.
