Elon Musk Says He’s Homeless And ‘Rotates’ Sleeping In His Friends’ Houses

He also doesn’t own a yacht nor goes on holidays

Elon Musk has an estimated net worth of $251 billion, the richest individual in the United States and globally. He’s presently at the center of a $43billion takeover bid of Twitter but has been set back by the company’s board. But despite all of this, the tech guru has said he doesn’t own a home and sleeps on friends’ spare beds. 

Musk admitted he stays with friends in San Francisco’s Bay Area, near Tesla HQ, when working in the city.

The Tesla and Space X founder also told TED in an interview that he doesn’t own a yacht and doesn’t take holidays. “I don’t even own a place right now. I’m literally staying at friends’ places. If I travel to the Bay Area, which is where most of Tesla’s engineering is, I basically rotate through friends’ spare bedrooms,” the 50-Year-Old, who previously had lived in Texas, said.

Musk further stated that an exception is a plane, but if he doesn’t use it, it implies he has fewer hours to work.

When asked by TED’s Chris Anderson [pictured], the head of the conference organization, about people who were heavily offended by billionaires, Musk replied: “I think there are some axiomatic flaws that are leading to that conclusion. For sure, it would be problematic if I was consuming billions of dollars a year in personal consumption, but that is not the case.”

These comments come a month after Musk’s long-term on and off GF Grimes sparked outrage when she said he doesn’t live like a billionaire.

Speaking with Vanity Fair in March, Grimes, who recently gave birth to the couple’s second child, revealed: “Bro lives at times below the poverty line. To the point where I was like, can we not live in a very insecure $40,000 house? Where the neighbors, like, film us, and there’s no security, and I’m eating peanut butter for eight days in a row?” 

However, the mom-of-two faced backlash, especially for comparing Musk’s frugal lifestyle to being poor.
