“It was an amazing four years. I will love you forever,” billionaire futurist Elon Musk tweeted after he divorced his actress wife Talulah Riley in 2012. Musk wasn’t kidding. He remarried Riley a year-and-a-half later. But Musk ultimately decided that “forever” is even longer that a day holding Tesla stock while gas prices plummet. He filed for divorce again on New Year’s Eve 2014. Auld Lang Syne, Talulah Riley.
Musk has a right to spend his remaining time wisely. He recently predicted that the world may be only five years away from a calamitous artificial intelligence invasion, with robots taking over the planet. (Many are comforted that, despite this, Musk’s plans for a Tesla factory in the Nevada desert will take five years to complete. Why bother if the world will be ruled by robots then?) Musk has five sons from a previous 8-year-long marriage that ended in divorce only once. His first wife, Justine Musk, is an awesome Musk-mocking blogger.
