Elon Musk denies that he had a brief affair with Google co-founder Sergey Brin’s wife. Yesterday, articles exploded on Twitter and in the news after the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported, citing unnamed sources, that Elon Musk had a brief affair with Nicole Shanahan.

According to the article, Sergey Brin and Nicole Shanahan filed for divorce this year as a result of the affair, which also ended the tech billionaires’ long friendship with Mr Elon Musk. But the funny part now is Elon Musk in a tweet claimed that this is all bs and he is still friends with Mr Brin.

This is total bs. Sergey and I are friends and were at a party together last night! I’ve only seen Nicole twice in three years, both times with many other people around. Nothing romantic.
