Elon Musk, noted idiot, is a serial monogamist. He once told Rolling Stone “If I’m not in love, if I’m not with a long-term companion, I cannot be happy.” You will see in a time line of his relationships, his jumps from one long term partner to the next. There's a lot to be said about this but I'm no therapist!
To start our journey, we will first take a look at the legendary Justine Musk.
Justine met Elon at college in Canada. While he was born into wealth, Musk lived the life of a fairly normal college guy. His first date with Justine was going out for ice cream. We know a lot about Justine's relationship with Elon thanks to her essay exploring their relationship. The whole thing is worth a read. In it, she talks about Musk's lovebombing, which included supplying her with credit cards to buy "all the books she wanted" and sending her regular bouquets of roses when he transferred to a different college. Things allegedly did not begin to turn until their wedding day, when he whispered in her ear "I'm the alpha".

After that, Musk began to slowly chip away at Justine's self esteem until he turned her into the perfect blonde trophy wife and when she began to rebel against that, going to therapy to find her sense of self with again, he filed for divorce.
Justine, free and thriving
After Justine and Elon divorced in 2008, he cut her off completely financially. Before his divorce was final, Musk began dating the 22 year old actress Talulah Riley.

They got engaged after knowing each other ten days, married in 2010, divorced in 2012, and remarried in 2013. Musk filed for divorce in 2014 but withdrew his filings, allegedly ripping up the divorce papers. Finally, in 2016, Talulah filed for divorce and the couple went through with it.

Early on in their courtship, Elon bought Talulah three engagement rings - One for every day wear, and two incredibly outlandish ones. If you Google her name and Elon, banned source D*ily Fail has allegations of emotional abuse (unsurprising given their on again off again nature) but according to the Rolling Stone profile on Elon linked above, they remain friends after their divorce and care deeply for one another.

In 2016, Musk began dating Amber Heard. They broke up that same year and Musk told Rolling Stone "I was really in love, and it hurt bad."
Their relationship was short and Amber honestly already fit the Musk Model of being thin and blonde with a face of European beauty standards, so she didn't change physically during their relationship but the couple did have embryos frozen so they could plan for a future family, which resulted in a court battle over what to do with them that took place last year. This court fight seems to have permanently soured the relationship between the two.
Amber and Musk dated off and on up until Elon, one fateful night, searched "Rokoko Basilisk" on twitter to see if anyone else has thought of it only to see that musician Grimes had named an alter ego from her album Art Angels Rokoko Basilisk and the rest is history.

To see what began this mess of a trio of posts, take a trip down Grimes Memory Lane here.

Now if you don't mind me, I'm taking a shower and never posting about Elon Musk or Grimes again!
