Elon Musk Begged for Forgiveness After Affair With Sergey Brin’s Wife


Elon Musk reportedly knelt down to ask Brin’s forgiveness after having an affair with the Google co-founder’s wife. Sources told The Wall Street Journal that the incident happened at a party earlier this year. Although Brin acknowledged the apology, the two tech tycoons did not speak, according to the Wall Street Journal.

After Google co-founder Sergey Brin divorced his wife in January after learning of her alleged affair with Elon Musk, Musk reportedly got down on his knees and begged his old friend for forgiveness.

Sources close to the matter told The Wall Street Journal that the incident happened at a gathering earlier this year, and while Brin acknowledged an apology, the tech giants are currently not speaking.

The fallout stemmed from Musk’s affair with Brin’s wife, Nicole Shanahan, which began at Art Basel in Miami in December 2021, according to the Wall Street Journal. Sources told The Wall Street Journal that Brin and Shanahan were separated at the time but still lived together and were experiencing difficulties related to COVID-19 and caring for their toddler daughter.

Brin filed for divorce in January, citing “irreconcilable differences,” court documents show. In the months that followed, sources said his relationship with Musk had been strained, and Brin directed his financial advisors to sell his investments in Musk’s various businesses. That includes Tesla, where Brin invested $500,000 in 2008.

“I want Sergey and I to move forward with dignity, honesty and harmony for the sake of our children. We are all working towards that,” Shanahan told news site Puck earlier this month.

The alleged affair happened when Musk broke up with his girlfriend Grimes. The pair have two children, one of which was born through a surrogate in the same month of the affair. In the first month of November 2021, Musk quietly gave birth to twins with one of his executives, Shivon Zilis, Insider’s Julia Black reports.

The news comes as Musk has also faced a series of public career challenges, including a contentious legal battle with Twitter after the Tesla CEO pulled out of a $44 billion deal to buy the social media platform.
