Celebrity odd couple Grimes and Elon Musk have separated, Page Six reports.

The Tesla Technoking (really) and superstar singer have been together for three years and made headlines when they arrived at the Met Gala together and Grimes (real name Claire Elise Boucher) wore a Tesla logo on her choker. Later, in 2020, they had the world buzzing again when they announced that they welcomed a son together and named him X Æ A-Xii.

Musk told Page Six that he and Grimes are "semi-separated" and continue to co-parent their son. He noted that geography played a part in the relationship's dissolution, saying that Grimes's work sees her primarily in Los Angeles while he has to be in Texas.

"We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms," Musk told the publication. "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 LA. She's staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room."

Grimes and Musk started dating back in 2018. Grimes appeared to attend this year's Met Gala solo — save her sword — but Page Six reports that Musk was in attendance and met up with her inside the event, opting to skip the red carpet. Musk hosted one of the event's after-parties at NYC club Zero Bond. Grimes hasn't commented on the news and will continue as a judge on Fox's new singing competition, Alter Ego.
