Nicole Shanahan Calls Claims About Elon Musk Affair an ‘Outright Lie’

The ex-wife of Sergey Brin was previously rumored to have had a ‘brief affair’ with the 51-year-old business magnate back in December which caused her to split from the Google co-founder.

AceShowbiz -Nicole Shanahan has denied that she had an affair with Elon Musk. The 37-year-old was reported by the Wall Street Journal on Sunday, July 24, to have had a “brief affair” with the 51-year-old business magnate back in December which caused her to split from Google co-founder Sergey Brin.

Having now denied the claims altogether, Nicole described any suggestion of an affair as an “outright lie.” Her lawyer Bryan Freedman told TMZ on Wednesday, July 27, “Make no mistake, any suggestion that Nicole had an affair with Elon Musk is not only an outright lie but also defamatory.”

Nicole’s statement comes just days after Elon, who split from pop singer Grimes in September 2021 but welcomed now-seven-month-old daughter Exa Dark with her when the affair was said to have happened, also denied the claims and insisted that he is still friends with Sergey.

The Tesla founder, who is thought to have borrowed around $500,000 from him during the 2008 financial crisis, tweeted, “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. Haven’t even had sex in ages (sigh).”

Elon Musk denied rumors that he had an affair with Nicole Shanahan.

“WSJ has run so many bs hit pieces on me and Tesla I’ve lost count! It’s embarrassing for them, frankly,” he continued voicing his frustration. “They once wrote an article saying FBI was about to arrest me, so I called FBI to ask what’s up and they said WSJ article was total bs. Just more shortseller fud (sic)”

Elon, who was close friends with Sergey for a number of years, and his fellow multi-billionaire were allegedly no longer on speaking terms. It was claimed that Sergey had intended to sell his personal investments in Elon’s companies.

Back in January 2022, Sergey cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce and noted that December 15, 2021 was their official date of separation.

Family wise, Elon has a total of 10 children from various relationships, while Sergey has 13-year-old Benji and 11-year-old Chloe with ex-wife Anne Wojcicki.
