After dismissing a report claiming that Elon Musk had an affair with billionaire Google co-founder Sergey Brin’s wife, Nicole Shanahan, the Tesla CEO shared a photo of himself partying with Brin. He sent the photo to the New York Post late hours after the WSJ reported that Elon-Nicole's alleged affair led to Brin filing for divorce and ended his longtime friendship with Musk. "That was Sergey and me yesterday afternoon!" wrote Elon Musk. The picture showed him laughing and enjoying for the camera with Brin.
Elon Musk denies report of an affair with Nicole Shanahan
Tesla CEO recently denied the reports by WSJ, which claimed that Musk and Shanahan met at an Art Basel event in Miami and went on to be romantically involved. He completely denied the reports, calling them "total bs." He wrote, "This is total bs. Sergey and I are friends and were at a party together last night."
Musk said he has seen Brin's wife twice in three years, both times in the presence of other people, and there was "nothing romantic" between the pair. "I've only seen Nicole twice in three years, both times with many other people around. Nothing romantic," he added. Musk followed up his denial with claims that the publication has engaged in "character assassination" numerous times before and alleged that "none of the key people involved in these alleged wrongdoings were even interviewed!"

Musk is clearly disappointed with the media after reading such allegations about him. "The amount of attention on me has gone supernova, which super sucks. Unfortunately, even trivial articles about me generate a lot of clicks. Will try my best to be heads down focused on doing useful things for civilization," he tweeted.
