Elon Musk denies involvement in Google co-founder Sergey Brin’s divorce

PEOPLE – “Total bullshit” or real scoop? The very serious wall street journal announces this Monday July 25 that Elon Musk would have an affair with the wife of the co-founder of Google, Sergey Brin, resulting in the latter’s divorce. Information that the founder of Tesla denies as a whole and describes as “big bullshit”, qualifying in passing the national daily of “under tabloid”.

“It’s a big bullshit, Sergey (Brin) and I are friends and were at a party together last night! I’ve only seen Nicole (Shanahan) twice in three years, both times with lots of other people around. Nothing romantic”, defended the billionaire, only a few hours after the publication of the article.

The Wall Street Journal suggests that Sergey Brin, co-founder of the Google search engine, would have asked his wife Nicole for a divorce for this reason, even though the two men have shared a friendship for many years.

Apologies on your knees?

The article evokes “a brief affair last fall” which would have set fire to the powder in the couple and in the Musk-Brin friendship, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Something to encourage Sergey Brin ordered his financial advisers to sell his personal investments in his friend’s companies, according to these same sources. In particular Tesla, in which Sergey Brin had invested half a million dollars, after the sub-prime crisis in 2008. But no sale could be noted at this time by the newspaper.

As for the divorce, it has indeed been recorded, according to the files filed in the Superior Court of Santa Clara County in California. A separation with Nicole Shanahan dated January 2022 – after more than four years of relationship – for “irreconcilable differences”, and which would therefore be due to the short relationship of the founder of PayPal with the wife of Sergey Brin.

contacted by wall street journalSergey Brin’s lawyers declined to comment on the information, unlike Elon Musk.

According to the newspaper’s sources, Elon Musk and Nicole Shanahan would have had this short adventure in December 2021, during the Art Basel event in Miami. After this supposed event, the Tesla boss even knelt down in front of his friend to ask for forgiveness.
