Elon Musk, known for his ventures with SpaceX and Tesla, has had multiple marriages and divorces, including two with actress Tallulah Riley.

The first marriage ended in 2012, and they remarried in 2013, only to divorce again in 2016.

Despite their ups and downs, they have remained on good terms. Musk’s first divorce with Justine Musk involved significant financial settlements, including cash, stock in SpaceX, and a car. (Trending: Fox News Star Accused Of Major Scandal)

Musk wrote, “It was an amazing four years. I will love you forever. You will make someone very happy one day.”

Riley said, “I suppose the reason to get remarried was just because it felt silly to be together unmarried after having been married. … We were saying, ‘This is my husband.’ ‘This is my wife.’ ‘Oh, wait, no, we’re not that anymore. We better be that again.'”

Riley described Musk as “the perfect ex-husband.”

“He’s a great friend. He looks out for me. We are in a happy place now, where we’re good to each other, which is really nice. I have the utmost love for him,” reflected Riley.

The settlement was one of the most expensive of its time, and Musk made ongoing financial commitments to Justine.

Additionally, Musk reportedly gave Riley more than $20 million across their two divorces.

Recently, Musk has been involved in a custody battle with singer Grimes over their children.
