Despite Elon Musk denying the reports about having an affair with Nicole Shanahan, wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin, social media is finding it hard to believe. Speculations about the alleged couple's sex life also surfaced after Musk claimed to being a celibate for a long time.
The reports around the alleged affair surfaced following a report in the Wall Street Journal. The article listed the possible reasons behind Brin's recent divestment from projects associated with Musk.
Musk Claims to be a Celibate For Ages
The WSJ article claimed that Musk and Shanahan allegedly had a relationship while in Miami, Florida where they met at the Art Basel event. After the incident, the alleged affair persisted for a brief period of time although Brin and Shanahan were still married and sharing a home.
In a series of tweets, Musk while denying the dating rumors, wrote, "This is total bs. Sergey and I are friends and were at a party together last night! I've only seen Nicole twice in three years, both times with many other people around. Nothing romantic."
Responding to Musk, Twitter user @WholeMarsBlog wrote, "Phew glad to hear that keep your dick in your pants they're out for your head."
In response Musk wrote, "Haven't even had sex in ages (sigh)."
