Maye Musk, the mother of the flamboyant billionaire and owner of Twitter and Tesla, Elon Musk, has been enjoying the picturesque views and delights of Hydra in Greece, after her visit to Santorini. "Hello Hydra, Greece. I spent a wonderful day exploring this beautiful island," tweeted Maye Musk, while thanking CAA Speakers and Golden Yachts.
Meanwhile, Elon Musk has refuted allegations that his father, Errol Musk, financed him with emeralds from an illicit mine, and has revealed that he did not have a happy childhood and grew up in a lower middle-income family. Maye Musk also added, "When we moved to Toronto in 1989, we stayed in a one-bedroom apartment until I found a rent-controlled apartment."
Despite being the owner of Twitter and other successful ventures, Elon Musk claims that he did not inherit anything from anyone nor has he received any large financial gifts. Although his upbringing was modest, he managed to transition from a lower to upper-middle income situation.
"My father founded a small electrical and mechanical engineering company that was prosperous for a period of 20 to 30 years. Unfortunately, the company experienced significant financial difficulties and has essentially been insolvent for the past 25 years, necessitating financial support from my brother and me.
"Despite this, I credit my father with instilling in me the foundational principles of physics, engineering, and construction, which are more valuable than any monetary support he could have provided after high school.
"However, our assistance to him was contingent on him refraining from engaging in any inappropriate conduct. Regrettably, he violated this condition. Nonetheless, due to the well-being of young children involved, we continued to offer financial assistance.
"Regarding the alleged 'emerald mine,' there is absolutely no credible evidence that this mine ever existed. My father had claimed to own a share in a Zambian mine, and for a time, I believed him. However, there are no records or sightings of the mine.
"If the mine had been real, my father would not need financial support from my brother and me."
