Elon Musk is back on the market. The Tesla founder and musician Grimes have reportedly split after three years together.

The couple will continue to co-parent their infant son X Æ A-Xii, pronounced Ex Ash A Twelve.

Elon and Canadian singer Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, 33, met in 2018. They welcomed their son in 2020.

Grimes is best known for her electronic and synthpop music. She featured pop singer Janelle Monae on her track "Venus Fly."

"We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms," Elon told Page Six.

Elon said they grew apart due to his work which requires him to travel extensively.

"It's mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She's staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room."

Elon, 50, moved to Texas in December 2020 following a public spat with California lawmakers over government shutdowns amid the Covid-19 crisis.

Elon, who has six other sons with ex-wife Justine Musk, was less than impressed with the latest addition to his modern family.

"Well, babies are just eating and pooping machines, you know? Right now there's not much I can do," he told the New York Times. "When the kid gets older, there will be more of a role for me."

Elon has been married three times. He divorced Justine Musk in 2008, and he and actress Talulah Riley divorced twice.

He briefly dated actress Amber Heard in 2017.

Idris Elba's wife Sabrina is upset over his increasing temper tantrums. On the couple's new podcast, he shared that he tells her to "leave" if she was afraid of his explosive "anger tantrums".

The 'Suicide Squad' actor recalled feeling "stressed" in the early days of his romance when Sabrina pressed him to put a ring on it.

The couple married in April 2019 after two years together. But when the chemistry faded, Idris began to reveal his true side.

When she questioned his angry outbursts, he suggested they end their relationship.

Speaking on their podcast series, Coupledom, Idris said: "Sabrina and I, very early in our relationship I was very stressed so I had these massive anger tantrums that were like explosions.

"She was like, 'Who are you?'

"I was always the first to say, 'Hey, if you're not happy, leave. Move.' It was kind of like a male instinct."

Idris theorized that they clashed because they both have "strong personalities" but the British star is trying to do better at avoiding conflict.

He said:

"Sabrina and I both have strong personalities and typically it's Sabrina who says, 'Look, I don't want to fight... I've been getting better at it recently but when I do it, I get nothing back. When she does it, I go, 'Thank you.'"

Idris and Sabrina are pictured at a movie premiere with his daughter, Isan Elba, from a previous relationship.

Despite their arguments, the couple recently insisted they are in a "good place" together and love working together on their podcast and new lifestyle brand S'able Labs.

Sabrina said:

"We're newly business partners, but we're also newlyweds. Idris is my best friend. I want to be around this guy every day of my life, so it's really great to be able to see what that morphs into."

And Idris added:

"I'd say we're in a good place. It was a challenging year, but ultimately, when you look to the side and you've got someone that's been there, ride or die, that's really comforting."

Beyonce's mother Tina Knowles-Lawson heaped praise on her son-in-law, rapper Jay Z, calling him a "true man" in a gushing open letter.

Tina, 67, shared the letter to Instagram after it was announced that the "Empire State of Mind" rap star had sold 50 per cent of his champagne brand, Armand de Brignac, to luxury goods company LVMH's Moet Hennessy.

"Jay I salute you and your Latest venture," Tina wrote.

"You are a bad ass brother and I hope that you continue to pave the way for others like you have in the past!! And I have seen such extreme kindness and generosity so many times that people don't even know anything about! You are a true man who has admitted publicly when you've made mistakes in a very brave and classy way! You have in turn influenced the Culture of Young Black Men. You are a Bad Ass brother. I love you so much!!"

She added: "One thing that I’ve noticed about Jay is that he doesn't let what people say bully him into not doing the things that he knows are right."

Tina's open letter sparked rumors that her marriage to actor Richard Lawson is on the rocks. Intuitive social media users noted she referred to Jay Z as a "true man" -- perhaps a dig at her husband?

In a video shared on Instagram, Tina films herself standing perilously close to the edge of a cliff, just feet above rushing water crashing onto jagged rocks.

Tina, who has not had much success with men, captioned the video:

"On the rocks in Big Sur in my Ivy Park coat. Richard IS NOT trying to climb out on those rocks like me . He said NOTHANKYOU !!! we are really social distancing!"

But others noted that Richard, 73, didn't seem to care how close his wife was standing to the cliff's edge. In fact, he seems distracted by his cell phone and is not even watching to make sure she is safe. He's standing at least 20 feet behind her.

Questions: 1. Do you think a "true man" would show more concern for his wife's safety? 2. Do you think the "true man" line was a dig at Richard?

Is there trouble in paradise for Jeezy and his fiancée Jeannie Mai? Insiders whisper that Jeezy and Jeannie are stepping back from their wedding plans.

Jeannie underwent surgery on her throat a few weeks ago, and Jeezy wasn't exactly there holding her hand every step of the way due to his busy schedule - which included a Verzuz battle with rapper Gucci Mane.

MTO News spoke with one of Jeezy's pals, who said, "Jeezy wants to hold off on marriage. They're engaged, so there's no need to rush things."

He added, "Probably [they'll get married] in 2025 or something like that."

When Jeannie was asked about the upcoming nuptials a few months ago, she sounded less than enthusiastic.

Read between the lines:

"Honestly, right now that's not at the top of our lists," she says. "We're so happy we're able to celebrate an engagement right now. I feel like we got work to do, so when it comes to our individual work and our individual projects and the messaging we want to send to people -- even the way that we use our Instagram -- it's really important right now to spread an energy of positivity and uniting one another than it is to be planning a wedding.

Relationships that fly high and then burn up upon reentry to earth are typically referred to as Dopamine relationships. Read here for more info on that.

This is the phase of Jeezy and Jeannie's relationship when that instant attraction they once felt for each other has faded.

Now they must reexamine their relationship to determine if they are equally yoked and if they have anything in common.

Question: When do you think Jeannie and Jeezy will announced their split?

Michelle Obama insists her marriage to former President of the U.S. Barack Obama is not on the rocks, even though it is far from perfect.

The former First Lady, who will celebrate her 28th wedding anniversary with Barack next month, spoke candidly about the ups and downs of her marriage with guest Conan O'Brien on the latest installment of The Michelle Obama Podcast.

Michelle, who reportedly suffers from situational depression, seemed to confirm rumors that she and Barack are often at war with each other.

"There were times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window. And I say that because it's like, you've got to know the feelings will be intense. But that doesn't mean you quit," she says.

She also admitted that they sometimes live apart in the 5 mansions they own. "And these periods can last a long time. They can last years."

Michelle, pictured with Barack during happier times, said no marriage is perfect and she went on to share advice for women looking for that perfect man (hint: he doesn't exist).

Mrs. Obama said searching for a suitable life partner is like assembling an all-star basketball team.

"You want LeBron (James). You don't want the guy, third row on the bench, who didn't make the team, but we often don't think about that," she shares.

"What you're supposed to say, is, 'I have married LeBron. My version of LeBron,'" said Michelle.

Some social media users took that as a diss toward women like singer Monica Arnold, who married L.A. Lakers bench warmer Shannon Brown, only to see him get cut by the team a year later. Brown is now a used car salesman in Atlanta.

The 'Becoming' author also stressed the importance of giving yourself time to see the person you're dating "in an array of situations," and insists, "You can't Tinder your way into a long-term relationship."

"There's no magic way to make that happen except getting the basics of finding somebody, being honest about wanting to be with them, to date them seriously, to plan on making a commitment, to date them, seeing where it goes, and then making it happen," she adds.

Kim Kardashian-West says she has made sacrifices and totally compromises for Kanye West as he goes through a midlife change.

Kim stopped by The Real daytime talk show on Wednesday and suggested the rap musician, who turned his back on secular music, is going through a midlife crisis.

Kanye gave up rap music to preach to the unwashed masses during his popular Sunday Service gospel revival tour. Kim told The Real co-hosts that she supports her 42-year-old husband while he embarks on his religious journey. "I obviously want to honor him and what he's feeling. And he's been going through this life change," she said.

The West Coast socialite revealed she fights with her husband over the differences in their approach to raising their children since he became a born-again Christian.

The 39-year-old mother of four said Kanye removed the televisions from their children's bedrooms and he forbid 6-year-old North West from wearing lipstick.

"He's very cautious about what we have in the house. We got rid of TVs in the kids' room and removed makeup from North's room. He's had this epiphany of being this... not that he wasn't an amazing dad, but being more strict as a dad and very forceful on the imagery that's in our household and what they see."

She said she has had to compromise as Kanye becomes "more strict" as a dad. She said they sometimes fight over his excessive demands. Rumor has it that he went through her closets and ordered her to stop dressing in half naked clothing.

"I think, at the end of the day, that's what marriage is. He's going to do things that I don't agree with and I support him and vice versa."
