Justine, Elon Musk’s first ex-wife, has disputed his account of their infant son’s final moments. Justine, who has five other children with Elon, claimed she was the one who held their 10-week-old son Nevada as he was removed from life support.
Last week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk spoke out about losing his first child, Nevada Alexander Musk, to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), as he explained his decision not to allow Sandy Hook elementary school shooting conspiracy theorist Alex Jones to return to Twitter, which he purchased for $44 billion.
He stated, “In my arms, my firstborn child died. I could feel his last heartbeat. I have no sympathy for anyone who would exploit the deaths of children for personal gain, political gain, or fame.”
When one of Elon’s followers inquired about the infant’s death, Justine replied, “He was placed on life support as a result of a SIDS-related incident. He was pronounced brain dead. Not that it matters to anyone but me, because it was one of the most sacred and defining moments of my life, but I was the one holding him.” “The details are just really important to me,” she later added.
Justine previously relived Nevada’s death in a Marie Claire magazine article, saying, “He had been brain-dead for so long by the time paramedics resuscitated him that he was brain-dead. He was on life support for three days in an Orange County hospital before we decided to remove him from it. When he died, I held him in my arms.”
Elon and Justine divorced in 2008, and the billionaire has two children with singer Grimes and twins with Shivon Zilis, a director at his Neuralink firm.
