Elon Musk’s dad says he’s NOT PROUD of his billionaire son and told him to take diet pills


Elon Musk’s father admitted he wasn’t proud of his billionaire son, didn’t drive a Tesla and explained why he got married and had a baby with his stepdaughter in an interview with the radio.

Errol Musk, 76, called the Kyle and Jackie O Show on Australian radio Monday morning for a bizarre 20-minute interview.

The Tesla CEO’s father told the hosts that Elon had “passed the mark” of what he considered success, but said the Musk family had “done a lot of things for a long time”.

‘Your offspring is a genius. He’s worth so much money and has created so much that you can’t take that away from him. Are you proud? asked one of the hosts.

He initially differed when asked where Elon got his genie from, suggesting it may have been the milkman who visited them rather than Errol or his mother Maye.

Musk then said he wasn’t proud: “No. You know, we’re a family that’s been doing a lot of things for a long time, it’s not like we suddenly started doing something.”

Errol said his kids have been doing ‘interesting things’ for a long time and he hasn’t once received a handout from his billionaire son and it was Elon’s younger brother Kimbal who was his “pride and his joy”.

He also clarified that Kimbal himself was a billionaire, but not as rich as Elon, the richest man in the world.

Errol said his billionaire son wasn’t as happy as he could be about his success and said he felt like he was five years behind, even suggesting he might be an underachiever.

“He’s frustrated with the progress and that’s understandable,” the 76-year-old said.

When pressed on what Elon would do if he was actually “on schedule,” he told Kyle and Jackie O that he would have his scholarship long overdue.

“I know it sounds crazy, but we tend to think like that as a family. He’s 50 now and I still think of him as a little boy. But he’s 50, I mean he’s an old man .

Referring to recent shirtless photos of his son on a boat in Greece, he said he encouraged his son to eat better and take a supplement.

“Elon is very solid but he eats badly,” he told the hosts.

Errol even said he recommended garcinia cambogia — a supplement that can supposedly help with weight loss without extra exercise or diet — to his son.

Errol said Elon was “heavily built” but “eat badly” and said he recommended his son garcinia cambogia – a supplement believed to help with weight loss without exercise or additional dieting.

Errol then revealed he had never received a gift from his billionaire son (pictured in May) and it was his younger brother Kimbal who was his ‘pride and joy’

Musk was asked if he drives a Tesla, to which he replied that he drives a Bentley, Rolls Royce and Mercedes-Benz instead.

He also said his son doesn’t just give him money: “We are a very frugal and miserly family. If I want to spend anything, I have to answer 100 questions about why,” he explained.

‘Elon lives a very frugal life. He’s up for work at six o’clock.

He joked that Elon would send him on his spaceship as a “guinea pig”.

Errol said he fears that Elon, who is currently single, will never find a woman who will give up his career to be part of his life, as Kimbal’s wife, Cristiana Wyly, did despite her upbringing and her mastery.

He said of his son, “He loves people, he loves humanity” and fondly remembers when he was 14 and it was his birthday, buying him a Louie Armstrong tape titled “What a Wonderful World “.

“She’s with him all the time and it’s very, very nice,” he said of the couple. ‘Elon is not [have that] and I worry about him”.

Musk was then asked about his relationship with his 34-year-old stepdaughter, Jana Bezuidenhout, with whom he shares two young children.

This came after he joked that he was still a ladies’ man: “I have yet to meet the man who doesn’t want to be a ladies’ man, so when I meet that man I’ll let you know” .

He said he was married to Jana’s mother for two years in the 1990s and did not see or speak to Bezuidenhout after the divorce until 2014.

He said it was when she contacted him during a difficult time that their friendship turned into romance.

Errol had to interrupt when one of the hosts suggested Jana was his biological daughter: ‘No, no, that’s totally normal,’ he said, despite the 42-year age gap .

Musk was then bizarrely asked what his son’s Elon penis looked like and if it was circumcised.

“I’m going to have her send a picture,” Errol joked.

Last month, the 76-year-old revealed he had a daughter with Bezuidenhout in 2019, a year after having their first child, Elliot Rush, now five.

He told The Sun he’d like the kids to live with him, but the last time they visited, “the kids were starting to piss me off.”

Musk, however, refused to rule out having any more children, saying, “The only thing we’re on Earth for is to reproduce.”

Errol told the publication that his CEO son shared the opinions of his three sisters, who were frightened by the relationship he had with their half-sister.

‘They still don’t like it. They still feel a little scary about it, because it’s their sister. Their half-sister,” Errol said.

Meanwhile, it also emerged that Elon welcomed twins last November with a senior executive at one of his companies, Shivon Zilis, 36.

The twins arrived just weeks before Musk had a second child via surrogate with his Canadian pop star girlfriend Claire Boucher, who goes by the name Grimes.

The father of ten also has five children with his first wife, Canadian author Justine Musk.

A sixth child, their first, died of sudden infant death syndrome when he was just ten weeks old in 2002, prompting them to resort to in vitro fertilization.

Then Justine gave birth to twins – Vivian and Griffin – in 2004, followed by triplets – Kai, Saxon and Damian – in 2006.

Their eldest child, Vivian, 18, recently filed a legal request to change her first name to indicate that she is transgender and her last name to signal that she does not “want to be related to my biological father in any way. be it, shape or form”. ‘.
