Meet Elon Musk’s scandal-ridden father Errol.
Elon vs Errol
In a 2017 profile of Elon in Rolling Stone, although the “technologist” said his father is “brilliant at engineering”, he also referred to him as a “terrible human being”.
The Tesla centibillionaire alleged that Errol had done “almost every crime you can think of. It’s so terrible, you can’t believe it”.
According to Musk in his interview with Rolling Stone, Errol allegedly shot and killed three people who broke into his house, out of self-defence.
The father of the SpaceX founder had children with Jana Bezuidenhout, his 34-year-old stepdaughter.
The self-proclaimed “ladies’ man” commented on the whole fiasco? “Elon thought that was not very good. From my point of view, I take life as it comes,” he has been widely quoted as saying.
Errol Musk does not drive a Tesla.
He states Elon is an underachiever and he is disappointed with his centibillionaire son.
On Elon's recent shirtless photos in Greece, the father of the world’s richest man recommended Garcinia Cambogia – a supplement aiding weight loss without the grind of exercise or dieting.
Elon lived with his father after his parents (Maye and Errol) split. He has a close relationship with his mother. He said he had done “'everything to try to change my father for the better and he, no way, it just got worse”.
