Taking a solemn stride into the California courts on September 29th, the creator of the hit “Genesis” has submitted a “petition to establish parental relationship”, according to documents secured by Page Six. This step, pivotal and poignant, seeks a formal declaration from the judicial system, recognizing the legal parents of a child when matrimonial ties are absent.
While the case’s ledger is available to the public’s prying eyes, the internal documents remain under seal, shrouded in a veil of secrecy and pending Musk’s response to the petition laid forth by Grimes.
The 35-year-old musician and Musk, aged 52, entered into a romantic endeavor in 2018, navigating through the waves of an intermittent relationship until it ultimately foundered in September 2021. Their familial journey began with the birth of their son, X Æ A-Xii, in May 2020 and subsequently expanded with the arrival of their daughter, Exa Dark Sideræl, affectionately known as Y, delivered via surrogate in December 2021.
A revelation from Walter Isaacson’s biography of the SpaceX mastermind in September unmasked the existence of a third progeny, a son named Techno Mechanicus or “Tau”. The circumstances of Tau’s arrival into the world remain enshrouded in mystery.
This legal move by Grimes follows a public appeal to Musk on Twitter just weeks prior, imploring him to permit her to see their son. After images of Musk’s twins, Strider and Azure – with Shivon Zilis – were shared by Isaacson, Grimes vented her anguish in a now-vanished tweet, pleading for communication and access to her child. Her emotional expression highlighted a heart-wrenching chasm in the family dynamic, which she asserted was tearing her own family asunder.
However, in a subsequent public exchange, Grimes relayed that she and Zilis, 37, have sought to “de-escalate” the hostility. In a message infused with a glimmer of hope and solidarity between the mothers, she stated, “We respect each other a lot and we’re excited to become friends and have the kids grow up together.” Zilis reciprocated with positivity, indicating that everything “ended up for the best.”
Behind the tapestry of this highly-publicized affair, Musk, father to 11 children and a thrice-divorced man, along with Zilis, covertly welcomed twins into their lives in November 2021, post his separation from Grimes. This birth remained concealed from public knowledge until eight months subsequent, weaving an additional layer into the complex narrative of these interconnected lives.
