Model at 74 and mother of the owner of Tesla and Space X: «My son is not interested in material things. His house in Texas is so small that I stay in the garage “

NEW YORK – Maye Musk he’s a celebrity of his own, not just because he brought into the world one of the most famous and talked about men on the planet. Elegant, proudly botox free, at 74 she is called to pose all over the world. Her autobiography of her, released in 2019, has been translated into 30 languages, in May she appeared in a bathing suit on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. During Paris fashion week she was Dior’s beauty ambassador, and that’s where she a reporter for the Times he met her for a long profile on the Sunday edition of the London newspaper. «They hire me for my wrinkles – she immediately says – no one has ever asked me to change». As for her gray hair, she swears her career took off when she stopped dyeing it in her fifties and cut it.

Direct and witty, her favorite topic throughout the interview remains her son Elon
(despite the great appreciation also for the other two, Kimbal and Tosca). From an early age he calls him “Genius Boy”: «He was always intent on absorbing information, we could ask him anything. And that was before the internet. I guess now we could call it the internet ». Life for Maye and her kids hasn’t always been easy. Her ex-husband Erroll, defined as “a terrible human being” by Elon who lived alone with him for a while, told her she was stupid, and ugly: “I remember thinking: I can’t be that ugly, model. But she beat me, so I didn’t contest it. ”

Eventually he took the three boys and moved from South Africa where they lived to Canada. They lost her luggage and she had to use Tosca and Elon’s clothes “because I couldn’t afford to buy new ones.” Even long after the marriage ended, she was “terrified of not being able to feed my boys.”

Now he lives in New York, in an apartment, he says, «not big»: «I don’t need wasted space because with it comes the responsibilities. I said to my children: “This is the most beautiful place I have ever lived in” ».

Even the beloved Elon, assures, even with his 270 billion dollars that make him the richest man in the world

is not that interested in material goods and lives in a relatively modest place a Boca Chica, the SpaceX headquarters in Texasmuch that when he goes to see him «I have to sleep in the garage. You can’t have a luxury home near a missile launch site “.

Maye claims she doesn’t interfere with her children’s decisions (and luckily, she confesses she didn’t want Musk to build an electric car and rockets), but she’s a real hen. Her Twitter account, over 780,000 followers, is full of the hashtag #proudmom, proud mom. O tiger mother, if Elon is attacked: when the Wall Street Journal wrote that the patron of Tesla and Space X allegedly having an affair with the wife of his old friend, Sergey Brin of Google, Maye was not diplomatic: «« @WSJ It’s not supposed, it’s made up by you. As always. Who pays you to lie this time? ‘

On the verbal excesses of the firstborn glissa: “He has a quirky sense of humor and doesn’t always realize that some people might not like it or understand it.” If the slightly nerdy boy made it, he says, it is also thanks to his brother: “Many geniuses end up in a basement making geniuses, but without applying that genius”, and it was Kimbal, one year younger , to pull him out (now he is also on the Tesla and Space X boards). As for Elon, he can now easily mingle with “other shy people”: “All his engineers are shy and a bit nerdy.”
