After the turmoil that Elon Musk has gone through due to a rumor that said that he was a billionaire slept with Nicole Shanahan, the wife of tech tycoon and co-founder of Google Sergey Brin.
One of the things that triggered him was that part of the rumor claimed that Musk had gotten on one knee and begged for forgiveness.
The Wall Street Journal was the one that claimed that Musk had done that “We are confident in our sourcing, and we stand by our reporting.”
Musk wrote to the The New York Post
Musk immediately went to the New York Post and denied all accusations and reassured that both Brin and he still remained best buddies and there was no problem whatsoever. “I would only kneel to propose marriage.
“And I have not proposed to Sergey,” Musk joked.
When they asked him if he was going to sue the Wall Street Journal to which he replied by email that “Legal action by a public person against a news organization in America is futile. Better to refute on Twitter or ignore, which is what I do most of the time,”.
They did not talk
“I spoke to both Sergey and Nicole about the article and they were both adamant that they had not talked to WSJ, nor authorized anyone to speak on their behalf,” Musk commented.
“Moreover, I was with Sergey from Saturday night to yesterday afternoon with many mutual friends and it was a super positive vibe.”
He saw her only with more people around
Musk also made the affirmation that he had only seen Shanahan two times in the length of three years and “with many people around.
“We were not romantically involved in any way,” Musk said on Twitter
He will focus only on his projects
“The amount of attention on me has gone supernova, which super sucks,” Musk continued the Twitter thread. “Will try my best to be heads down focused on doing useful things for civilization.”
