Elon Musk and Grimes have officially broken up and after three years together, her net worth has not even tip-toed near the billionaire’s wealth. 

Musk is the second richest person in the world with a net worth of ​​$197.9 billion but his wealth stands far above that of his ex, who is valued at $3 million. 

In fact, the Canadian singer has repeatedly said she does not take any money from Musk, with who she has a one-year-old son named X Æ A-Xii Musk.

“Grimes is funded by Grimes,” she told Rolling Stone. "I can't say the things I say and believe what I believe and then take money from my boyfriend."

But their net worth is not the only distance between them. Musk has been working in Texas while Grimes is based in California. The long-distance has contributed to their separation.

“We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms,” Musk told Page Six, the first to reveal their breakup. 

“It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room,” he added. 

Grimes may not be leading financially but she was leading on Twitter after the news of their break up. Her name became the most trending topic on Twitter over her former boyfriend's, with fans sharing their views on the breakup.
