  • Grimes’s mother, Sandy Garossino, had a fiery response to Elon Musk telling his followers to “take the red pill” on Twitter.

  • This comes after sources say Grimes and Elon had relationship issues during her pregnancy.

The world has accepted the fact that Elon Musk and Grimes’s baby boy is named X Æ A-12 Musk. But even though that’s out of the way, there’s still drama going on between the parents behind the scenes, and it’s starting to get a lil messy. At least, messier than you’d want things to be between two people who just welcomed a child together. Allow me to explain!

On Twitter over the weekend, Elon tweeted a bizarre right-wing meme to his 34.3 million followers for some reason, telling them to “take the red pill.”

This tweet, however, understandably annoyed the hell out of Sandy Garossino (Grimes’s mother). In response to Elon’s tweet, she wrote, “If your partner went through a challenging pregnancy and childbirth in the last two weeks…And you were over 16 years old, Would you be blaring MRA bullshit on Twitter right now?”

Sandy later deleted the tweet, but the screenshots are forever.

To make matters worse, Grimes actually Liked her mom’s tweets (before un-Liking them to cover up the evidence. But again, the internet doesn’t forget).

This drama comes after reports that Elon and Grimes’s relationship was on the rocks during her pregnancy. “Elon and Grimes have experienced a lot of ups and downs in their relationship throughout Grimes’s pregnancy and have been on and off,” a source told Us Weekly earlier this month. “Through it all, though, they have and will continue to maintain a close friendship.”

Not entirely sure what this means for Grimes and Elon’s relationship status, but, uh, it’s probably not great!
