Elon Musk's yet another love life was made public.

Billionaire Elon Musk reportedly got down on one knee and begged Google co-founder Sergey Brin for forgiveness after Musk’s alleged affair with Brin’s wife Nicole Shanahan at a swank art festival in Miami Beach late last year.

The hook-up occurred after he and Canadian pop singer Grimes broke up in September at the annual Art Basel event in December 2021.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Tesla founder apologized to his longtime friend at a party earlier this year. The sources also added that although Brin professes Musk's remorse, he still doesn't speak to him regularly.

The affair of Musk with his close friend’s wife, Shanahan, prompted Brin to file for divorce in January 2022 citing irreconcilable differences. 

Brin and Shanahan are separated but are still living together with a divorce proceeding. She is reportedly seeking more than $1 billion from Brin which is much more than their prenuptial agreement.

Brin and legal tech founder Shanahan married in 2018 and welcomed a daughter in late 2018. With his first wife (married in 2007) biotech analyst and entrepreneur Anne Wojcicki, he has two children- a son born in late 2008 and a daughter born in late 2011. This marriage ended in divorce in 2015 after Brin had an affair with Google Glass's marketing director Amanda Rosenberg.

Space X founder Elon Musk has had strings of relationships- and children. With ex-wife Justine Wilson, he has five children- Griffin, Vivian Jenna, Kai, Saxon, and Damian. He welcomed two children with ex-girlfriend Grimes and in November 2021, welcomed twins with the director of operations and special projects at Neuralink Shivon Zilis.

Musk’s 76-year-old father recently broke the news that he has fathered two children with his stepdaughter.
