The tycoon Elon Musk He has denied having an affair with Nicole Shbahan who was the wife of the co-founder of Google Sergey Brin, and that this relationship had precipitated the divorce between the two, as The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday. Through Twitter and in response to a question asked on the same social network and commenting on the information published by the newspaper, Musk said: “Sergey and I are friends and we were at a party together last night.”

“I have only seen Nicole twice in three years, both times with many other people around. Nothing romantic,” he said.

According to the Wall Street Journal, which quoted people familiar with the matter, the love affair between Musk and Shbahan ended the long friendship that the Tesla leader had with the Google co-founder. The newspaper recalls that Musk, considered the richest person on the planet and Brin, the eighth, with multimillion-dollar fortunes acknowledged that for years he regularly visited Brin at his home in Silicon Valley (California).

A friendship that extended to business, when during the economic crisis of 2008, Brin contributed about $500,000 to Tesla, when the luxury electric vehicle company was trying to increase its production. According to sources cited by the Washington Street Journal, tensions between the two tycoons have increased in recent months, to the point that Brin has ordered his financial advisers to sell his personal investments in Musk’s companies.

Divorce court papers, filed last January, cite “irreconcilable differences” between the couple as the reason for the split. Always according to the newspaper, Brin and Shbahan had been separated for a year, but living together when the alleged “affair” took place, which occurred in early December.
