Elon Musk has been thrust into the spotlight once again, this time over allegations that he fathered children with one of his employees…

advertisement

Now, the billionaire philanthropist already has a lot of children, eight to be exact…

  via Getty Images  

Or so we thought!

Scroll on to find out all the latest.

Elon Musk is the complete embodiment of a classic eccentric billionaire.

  via Getty Images  

Being the founder, CEO, and Chief Engineering Designer of not only Tesla but SpaceX too, he has an awful lot going for him.

advertisement

As it currently stands, Tesla is the world’s leading electric car company…

  via Getty Images  

With almost 500,000 vehicles being bought and distributed in 2020 alone. The company is pioneering the future of electric car travel with Musk as its CEO.

And then there’s Space X…

  via Getty Images  

Space X became the first private company to successfully launch, orbit, and recover a spacecraft, as well as the first to send a spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS).

advertisement

And due to his accomplishments, Musk has cashed in a serious amount of money since starting his businesses…

  via Getty Images  

Back in January 2021, according to the BBC, Musk finally became the richest man in the world, knocking Jeff Bezos out of 1st place.

Quite the achievement, I know!

  via Getty Images  

However, the feud between Musk and Bezos had been ongoing all year, with the pair yo-yo-ing between 1st and 2nd place.

advertisement

Well, until late last year…

  via Getty Images  

Musk saw a jump of 4.9 percent for the stock price of Tesla at the start of the year – an increase that came just days after finishing the first trading session of the year where they saw an increase of 3.4 percent.

advertisement

Musk’s net worth subsequently soared shortly after to a staggering $188 billion, as per Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index.

  via Getty Images  

And with Jeff Bezos’ net worth standing at $187 billion, Elon Musk was ultimately placed as the world’s richest man.

advertisement

Things just kept getting better for Musk, and as of September 7th, he was reportedly worth over $200 billion…

  via Getty Images  

Making him the 3rd person in the world to ever reach that milestone, behind Jeff Bezos and Bernard Arnault, CEO of French luxury brands Moët, Hennessy, and Louis Vuitton.

advertisement

A great achievement for Musk!

  via Getty Images  

And of course, he went about the news in the most typical “Elon Musk” way.

advertisement

In response to the news, he simply tweeted, “How strange”…

  via Getty Images  

Before adding, “Well back to work.”

advertisement

Then, almost a month after beating Bezos and becoming the world’s richest man…

  via Getty Images  

He secured his position in 1st place.

advertisement

On October 25th, 2021, Musk left his competitors in the dust as he reportedly gained a further $36 million…

  via Getty Images  

Taking him up to a whopping $269 billion according to Forbes.

advertisement

However, despite being crowned the richest man in the world, it hasn’t all been sunshine and rainbows for the CEO…

  via Getty Images  

In 2021 alone, he split from his long-time girlfriend Grimes, as well as having to pay up for some unpaid taxes due to unrealized gains in Tesla stock. So all in all, it’s been a choppy year.

advertisement

Now, Elon really did make the headlines an awful lot last year.

  via Getty Images  

And it was always in celebration of his success.

He started this year off right, too. The $11 billion in taxes he paid have definitely been a thing of the past for him because he almost tripled what he paid in 2021, and it was only the beginning of 2022.

advertisement

How? You might ask…

  via Getty Images  

It’s all down to his Tesla company.

In 2021, Tesla manufactured 936,000 vehicles, allowing for a rise in stock prices, as per LADbible.

advertisement

And to put his riches into perspective…

  via Getty Images  

By Musk paying $11 billion in taxes last year, he gave 0.0036 percent of his earnings away. Yep, it might make you want to cry yourself to sleep, but that’s the truth.

advertisement

And now, Musk is showing us all just how wealthy he truly is…

  via Getty Images  

By bidding $44 billion for Twitter, which he already had a 9% acquisition in.

advertisement

Musk wrote in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Committee: “I invested in Twitter as I believe in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe, and I believe free speech is a societal imperative for a functioning democracy.

  via Getty Images  

“However, since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company.”

advertisement

Yep, that’s right, Musk met with Twitter executives to discuss the possibility of taking on the company.

  via Getty Images  

As per the Wall Street Journal, he got financing for $46.5 billion in order to make it happen.

And they accepted!

advertisement

As impossible as this might sound, there was a reason why his offer was too good to miss…

  via Getty Images  

According to the WSJ, Twitter shareholders wanted a payout from the company, so his bid couldn’t have come at a better time.

advertisement

Musk has already made it clear that he wants to make some changes to the site…

  via Getty Images  

One being longer Tweets and another being the excessive amount of ads being toned down. He also suggested that the site would be better off going private.

advertisement

Investors of the company have previously shared their reluctance to sell to Musk, but have since come around…

  via Getty Images  

So you’re looking at the new owner of Twitter!

advertisement

Musk’s acquisition of Twitter could mean that some huge changes are on the way.

  via Getty Images  

One of which will be that Twitter will be a privately held company, though this doesn’t mean many regulations change, as per Forbes.

advertisement

Of course, Musk’s acquisition of the site has received a very mixed response and left many people asking questions.

  via Getty Images  

Actor and filmmaker, Rob Reiner queried: “Now that Elon Musk is buying Twitter, the question for all of us is: Will he allow a Criminal who used this platform to lie and spread disinformation to try to overthrow the US Government to return and continue his Criminal activity? And if he does, how do we combat it?”

advertisement

While another person expressed their worry…

  via Getty Images  

“I worry that Elon Musk buying twitter might ruin this platform’s reputation for friendly, good-natured and respectful exchanges of views,” they wrote.

advertisement

But, for others, Musk’s acquisition is a positive…

  via Getty Images  

Including for Tucker Carlson who has had his Twitter account reinstated.

advertisement

Just hours after Musk’s purchase was announced, Carlson’s Twitter account was reinstated.

  via Getty Images  

It comes after he was removed from Twitter a matter of weeks ago after it was found that he violated its rules.

advertisement

Carlson announced his return to the platform with a very simple tweet.

  via Getty Images  

“We’re back,” he wrote.

advertisement

According to UNILAD, Carlson spoke about Musk’s purchase on Tucker Carlson Tonight where he described it as “big news.”

  via Getty Images  

“The reason that today’s sale of Twitter is big news, the reason it could turn out to be a pivot point in our history, is that Elon Musk does not agree with the rest of the billionaires in the tech business,” he said. “He thinks everyone should be allowed to talk. Including people who disagree with him.”

advertisement

He also hit the headlines for something huge, albeit not that surprising…

  via Getty Images  

Musk is set to become the world’s first trillionaire by 2024.

advertisement

Finance experts have said that although the billionaire is doing well with the ventures he has in his name…

  via Getty  

Acquiring Twitter has pushed him ahead, meaning that he’s set to become even richer in the future… Like we’re surprised, right?

advertisement

So, where will Musk be in 2 years?

  via Getty Images  

Well, he could have up to $1.3 trillion by 2024, as reported by Joe.

advertisement

Musk will be the first person to reach the milestone of being a trillionaire.

And that’s at the age of fifty-two years old. But, that’s not the most impressive part. Most people become a millionaire by the age of fifty-one, and by then, Musk will more than likely be a trillionaire.

advertisement

According to the news outlet, the procurement and business spend software company has put into perspective just how well Musk is doing.

  via Getty Images  

“Musk’s fortune has shown an annual average increase of 129 percent,” they said. And this increase has occurred since 2017.

advertisement

Many people have shared their opinions…

  via Getty Images  

“How is Elon Musk on the way to trillionaire status while we in a whole recession?!?!” one person questioned.

advertisement

“If Elon Musk becomes a trillionaire and Yorkshire is still in poverty, the world has failed,” somebody else voiced about a county in England.

  via Getty Images  

Another said that they “hoped” Musk would become a trillionaire.

advertisement

But it seems one important person in Musk’s life isn’t impressed by his success and has even stated they want nothing to do with him.

  via Getty Images  

Musk’s transgender daughter has filed to change her name from Xavier Musk to Vivian Jenna Wilson, after her mom Justine Wilson, who was married to Musk from 2000 to 2008.

advertisement

In the documents, which were filed in L.A. County, she states that she wants to identify as female.

  via Getty Images  

But that isn’t the only reason for her name change…

advertisement

The reason she put as to why she wants to change her name is “Gender Identity”…

  via Getty Images  

And also “the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.”

Ouch!

advertisement

She has since been granted a name change and a gender change.

  via Getty Images  

The documents, seen by TMZ, show that Musk’s daughter will be granted a birth certificate that reflects the changes in their life.

advertisement

Since then, Musk has come under fire for apparently fathering ‘secret’ children with one of his employees.

  via Getty Images  

According to a report that has been made public, Musk had twins last year with Shivon Zilis, who was working at his OpenAI company at the time.

advertisement

The documents, obtained by Insider, show that Musk and Zilis filed to change their children’s last names to their middle names back in April.

  via Getty Images  

The story states that the “court documents obtained by Insider show that the tech mogul Elon Musk quietly had twins last November with one of his top executives, Shivon Zilis. In April, Musk, 51, and Zilis, 36, filed a petition to change the twins’ names in order to ‘have their father’s last name and contain their mother’s last name as part of their middle name.’”

advertisement

According to the report, the “twins were born weeks before Musk and Claire Boucher, the musician who performs as Grimes, had their second child via surrogate in December.”

  via Getty Images  

Which makes the situation even messier for Musk.

Details on their relationship are still unclear.
