Tau was revealed in Musk’s new biography Elon Musk, written by Walter Isaacson who says: “He really wants smart people to have kids,” according to a review in The New York Times.

Musk and Grimes reportedly separated last year whilst Grimes was expecting their second child, Musk secretly became the father of twins with one of his employees, Shivon Zilis.

Last week Grimes posted the statement: “Tell Shivon to unblock me and tell Elon to let me see my son or plz respond to my lawyer,” according to Pitchfork.

She added: “I have never even been allowed to see a photo of these children until this moment, despite the situation utterly ripping my family apart.”

Since then Grimes has Tweeted an apology which reads: “I spoke with Shivon at length finally, which was long overdue. This wasn't her fault, plz don't be angry at her! We respect each other a lot and we're excited to become friends and have the kids grow up together.”

She continued: “Women are so often pitted against each other. Speaking with Shivon, it's very evident she's an amazing human and we both just want what's best for our kids.”

Her statement concludes: “I wish I could show u how cute little Techno is but my priority rn is keeping my babies out of the public eye, Plz respect that at this time”.

A senior Ukrainian official Mykhailo Podolyak has accused Elon Musk of “committing evil” via a Tweet on Musk’s social media channel.
