Nicole Shanahan denies having an affair with Elon Musk

Nicole Shanahan, the ex-wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin, denied through her lawyer having had an affair with businessman Elon Musk, as the Wall Street Journal reported last Sunday ( WSJ).

The newspaper, citing sources familiar with the matter, reported last weekend that Brin divorced Shanahan earlier this year after discovering she had had a brief affair late last fall with Musk.

According to a statement from Shanahan’s lawyers, collected by several local media, said relationship never occurred.

“Make no mistake, any suggestion that Nicole had an affair with Elon Musk is not only an outright lie, but also libel,” attorney Bryan Freedam wrote, according to the New York Post.

The WSJ also indicated that the love affair between Musk and Shanahan ended the long-standing friendship that the Tesla leader had with the Google co-founder.

According to sources cited by the WSJ, tensions between the two tycoons have increased in recent months, to the point that Brin ordered his financial advisers to sell his personal investments in Musk’s companies.

Court documents from Brin and Shanahan’s divorce, filed last January, cite “irreconcilable differences” between the couple as the reason for the split.

According to the newspaper, Brin and Shanahan had been separated for a year, but living together, when the alleged “affair” took place in early December.

In recent months, Musk has attracted media attention not only for his business activities at the head of Tesla or the aerospace company SpaceX, but also for his extravagant messages on social networks, the soap opera of the purchase of Twitter that, for the moment, He ended up in court, and because of his romantic relationships.

In May it was learned that a SpaceX flight attendant denounced the businessman for sexual harassment, something that Musk denied, and in July it was learned that the founder of Tesla secretly had a pair of twins in November last year with Shivon Zilis, a project supervisor for her company Neuralink.
