Elon Musk has denied having a relationship with Sergey's wife

After the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday that Musk, 51, had a "brief affair" with Nicole Shanahan last fall and quoted people familiar with the subject, the founder of Tesla responded on Twitter.

The publication said that Brin and Musk had been close friends for a long time and that Brin had even given Musk $500,000 for Tesla during the 2008 financial crisis. Musk has admitted that he "often crashed" at Brin's house in Silicon Valley.

The duo is escalating

But according to the publication's insiders, animosity between the two business moguls and their teams had escalated since the purported "liaison" in December 2021, when Brin asked his financial advisors to sell his holdings in Musk's enterprises.

Absolute nonsense, Said Musk

Brin and Shanahan hired a private 'temporary judge'

In Santa Clara Superior Court, Brin filed a lawsuit as California worked to clear its backlog. Despite the backed-up courts, the couple will be able to hasten their divorce thanks to the private interim judge.

The petitioner is one of the wealthiest and most well-known technology entrepreneurs in the world and a co-founder of Google. "Of great concern is that such publicity puts their minor child at risk of danger, harassment, and even kidnapping if the case goes public,"

No public interest is involved

Brin's attorney wrote in a filing. "Given the high-profile nature of their relationship, there is likely to be a significant public interest in their divorce and child custody disputes.

Although Larry Page and the Russian-American internet entrepreneur parted ways with the search engine's parent firm Alphabet in 2019, the two co-founded Google in 1998.
