Elon Musk’s father, Errol, has revealed his billionaire son’s scathing response after telling him that he and his stepdaughter are having a baby.
Elon Musk is said to have told his father that he was “very busy” after Errol announced that he had a baby with his stepdaughter.
The tech billionaire’s unexpected reaction to shocking news in 2018 is said to be in stark contrast to the reactions of his father Errol Musk’s three “troubled” daughters. Sun USA reports.
Errol, 76, said that when he notified the 51-year-old Tesla founder that he and his stepdaughter Jana Bezuidenhout had welcomed a boy named Elliot Rush, Elon told him: “Okay, I get it, but I’m very busy right now. I will talk to you in due time.”
The revelation came after Errol exclusively revealed how he had his second unplanned child with Yana, 34, in an interview with Bombshell. Sun.
Earlier it was reported that Elon was furious when he learned that his father, an engineer from South Africa, fathered a child with Yana.
The child, affectionately nicknamed Rushi, is now five, and the girl, according to Errol, he also had a daughter with Yana, three years old.
Yana is 42 years younger than Errol, and he raised her from the age of four.
Explaining how he informed his older children of Ruscha’s arrival, Errol said: Sun: “I notified all my children. I said take it or leave it. And my youngest son, Kimbal, the first reaction was: “It happens.”
“Elon said: “Okay, I understand, but now I am very busy. I will talk to you in due time.”
“All three of my daughters said “God” because Yana is their half-sister. Tosca, Rose and Ellie, Alexandra. They’re like, “How could Yana do that?”
“And they still don’t like it. They still feel a little creepy about it because she is their sister. Their half sister.
“They were more worried [than the boys]”.
Errol was married to mother Jana Heide for 18 years and they had daughters Rose and Alexandra.
He had three older children Elon, Kimbal, 49, and Tosca, 47, with first wife May Musk.
When asked Sun if he had a third child with Yana, Errol responded, “God, are you kidding me? Have you seen what she looks like?
I mean, she’s tall. She is five foot nine. She is skinny. She walks like an antelope, with grace.
“You watch her walk and you think, ‘God, what is this? Who walks like this?
“She has long arms, long fingers. Everything looks good, you know? Her face is so beautiful. There are no words for this.”
The couple’s second child was “unplanned”
Errol said Sun his intended second child with Yana was “unplanned”, but he lived with her after the birth of their son.
“I haven’t tested her DNA. But she looks just like my other daughters. She looks like Rose and Tosca got mixed up,” he said.
“She looks exactly like Rushi and acts like him. So it’s pretty obvious, you know.
He added: “It was not planned. But I mean, we lived together. She is [Jana] stayed here for about 18 months after Ruscha was born.
“But I realized that she was two generations behind, while her mother was one generation behind when I married her.
“So any man who marries a woman, even if you feel very cheerful, will be fine for a while. But there is a big gap… And this gap will make itself felt.
“I married her mother when she was 25 and I was 45. She was probably one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen in my life.”
Huge age difference between Errol and Yana
Errol said he no longer lives with Jana, but confirmed that they are “very attached to each other.”
“But the thing is, it’s not practical,” he said. “She is 35 next birthday. So she’s moving on. So in the end, if I’m still around, she might come back to me. It’s difficult.
“I mean, I’d rather they were here. But Yana came and spent a few days here about six months ago. And the kids started to get on my nerves.
“Then I miss them as soon as they leave.”
Regarding more children, Errol said: “The only thing we are here on Earth for is to reproduce.
“If I could have another child, I would. I see no reason not to.
“If I thought about it, neither Elon nor Kimbal would exist.”
Errol said he was no stranger to women claiming they had a child with him.
“I have about six people, women, who claim that their child is now my child. Obviously they are opportunists.
“There was a period in Johannesburg in the eighties when I met different women every night. I’ve had many dates.
“So it’s possible that one of them could actually come back and say it’s your child. It’s possible.
But they didn’t give me anything real. But I have a lot of people claiming.”
Speaking with Sun Earlier this month, Errol hinted at his son Elon’s political ambitions.
He also joked about his son’s number of children after the tech titan confirmed he was having twins with one of his top executives.
Errol said he had a hard time “keeping track” of his grandchildren.
Elon welcomes the twins
On July 6, it was reported that Elon Musk welcomed two more children from Neuralink CEO Shivon Zilis.
Siobhan, 36, is the third woman with whom the entrepreneur has children.
Errol claimed that teachers called his son an extremely offensive insult when he was seven years old.
Musk’s dad reveals details of his relationship with Elon and the mogul’s mom, May, 74.
He denies allegations that he had a bad relationship with his son for many years.
In a 2017 Rolling Stone interview, Elon called his father a “terrible person” and stated that his childhood was “painful and isolated”.
Meanwhile, Elon’s strained relationship with one of his children came into the spotlight last month after the teen filed for a gender reassignment.
The legal document revealed that the former 18-year-old Xavier Alexander Musk wanted to change his gender identity from male to female and become known as Vivian Jenna Wilson.
She said she is changing her name because she “no longer lives with my biological father and does not want to be related to him in any way, shape or form.”
On Father’s Day, Musk tweeted that he loves all his children “very much.”
Upon initial contact with SunYana declined to comment.
Sun contacted Elon’s representative for comment.
