- Maye Musk says she has to “sleep in the garage” when she visits her son, Elon Musk, at SpaceX’s Texas headquarters.
- “You can’t have a fancy house near a rocket site,” she told The Times UK.
- Elon has said he lives in a “very small” three-bedroom house in Boca Chica, Texas, worth $45,000.
Elon Musk’s mother, Maye Musk, has some unusual sleeping arrangements when she visits her son.
The 74-year-old supermodel told The Times UK she doesn’t sleep in a proper bedroom when she visits the SpaceX CEO in Boca Chica, the location of the company’s Texas headquarters and Starbase launch site.
“I have to sleep in the garage,” she told the outlet. “You can’t have a fancy house near a rocket site.”
Elon has said he doesn’t have a “main residence,” though he lives in a “very small” house in Boca Chica worth $45,000.
“My friends come and stay and they can’t believe I’m staying in this house,” he said on The Full Send podcast earlier this month.
He said the home, which measures 800 to 900 square feet, was “technically a three-bedroom but it used to be a two-bedroom” before he converted its garage.
The billionaire also owns a $50,000, 375-square-foot prefab tiny home that he uses for guests.
Elon had said in 2020 that he was “selling almost all physical possessions” and “will own no house.”
When asked in the Times UK interview if Elon was interested in material possessions, Maye said, “No, not at all in that sense.”
