Tosca Musk, a filmmaker, recently spoke to the Daily Mail about the blessings and challenges that come with bearing the Musk name. She recounted an incident where she was quoted an exorbitant price for a film location, attributing it to the assumption that she, too, possessed vast wealth due to her famous surname.

"The initial cost for the location was quoted as $5,000 per day," she explained to the news outlet. "However, upon hearing my name and presuming that we were affluent, they decided to inflate the price to $25,000."

Tosca Musk further clarified that despite public assumptions, her elder brother does not financially support all her endeavors. She described the situation as a "double-edged sword" when asked about her brother's involvement in her business. Alongside Elon Musk, they also have another sibling, Kimbal Musk, who is recognized as a restaurateur and philanthropist.
