Elon Musk makes his mother sleep in a garage – here’s why

While visiting her son in Texas, Elon Musk’s mother, Maye, made the startling admission that she slept in the garage.

Despite being the mother of the richest man in the world, the 74-year-old claimed she has no need for material possessions. Elon Musk’s mother claimed she had little interest in material things.

In an interview with The Times, the tech attraction’s mother said, “You can’t have a nice house near a rocket facility.”

Musk has a personal net worth of $229 billion. He had already said in April that he “didn’t even own a house right now”. The IT mogul said he was staying “with friends”.

The Tesla owner previously announced that his primary home is a $50,000 SpaceX rental. The company’s Texas office was conveniently located near the house.

Following his announcement to sell all of his material possessions and focus on “Mar and Land,” Musk began liquidating his real estate holdings last summer.

“Nearly all my material possessions are sold. In a May 2020 tweet, he said, “I won’t own any houses. In 2020, the multi-billionaire tweeted, “You don’t need the money,” adding that having money “only weighs you down.”

But unlike Musk, his mother said she had little interest in Mars. In the interview, she said, “You have to have six months of preparation and isolation, and I just don’t like that,” adding that she would comply if her children asked her to.

Three children, Elon, Kimbal and Tosca, were born to Maye and Errol Musk.
