Grimes and Elon Musk may have recently ended their three-year relationship, but she’s having a little bit of fun with the news. After Musk’s announcement of their separation, the “Violence” singer jokingly said she’s making sure they remain separated — even in outer space.
“I’ll be colonizing Europa [one of Jupiter’s moons] separately from Elon for the lesbian space commune,” Grimes told Page Six on Wednesday (Sept. 29). The 33-year-old — who shares son X Æ A-Xii with Musk — made no other comments pertaining to her and the SpaceX founder’s breakup.
Musk revealed on Friday (Sept. 24) that he and Grimes split, explaining that their work put a strain on their relationship because of the distance. “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms,” he told Page Six. “It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in L.A. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room.”
Billboard previously reached out to Grimes for comment about the breakup.
The former couple welcomed their son in May of last year after two years of dating. Grimes is currently working as a judge on singing competition Alter Ego, but recently spoke about their child in an interview with Vogue, in which she revealed that her little boy has allowed her to be more artistic.
“I think having a baby was a big rebirth for me, artistically. Being a mother feels weird for me to say,” the artist said ahead of attending the Met Gala this year. “X says ‘Claire,’ but he doesn’t say ‘mama.’ Maybe he can sense my taste for the word ‘mother’ — which, I don’t even know why I have a distaste for it, I respect it. I just don’t … I can’t identify with it, weirdly.”
X Æ A-12 is the singer’s first child, while the billionaire has five other sons with author Justine Wilson — twins Griffin and Xavier, 17, and triplets Damian, Saxon and Kai, 15.
