Business mogul Elon Musk is in an ‘on-off’ relationship with Australian actress Natasha Bassett, according to a new report.
On Saturday, Confidential reported that the couple, who were spotted disembarking from Elon’s private jet after his plane landed in Los Angeles last month, have known each other for some time.
“Elon and Natasha have had an on-going relationship for a few years,” an alleged source told Confidential.

“I think their relationship is quite rocky, especially with him having the same kind of on-and-off, on-going relationship with Grimes.”
The newspaper goes on to claim that Elon and Natasha started dating after meeting on the Los Angeles social scene.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Elon Musk for comment.
The report comes after Grimes confirmed on Twitter on Friday that she had split from Elon for the second time, three months after welcoming a second child together via surrogate.

The 33-year-old singer confirmed the couple had ended their relationship in a series of tweets on her new cover interview with Vanity Fair, in which she shared the news of their baby’s arrival, the name revealed of her daughter, Exa Dark Sideræl or ‘Y’ for short, and described Elon, 50, as her ‘boyfriend’.
“Me and E have broken up *again* since this article was written,” she wrote in the tweets that were posted about four hours after her interview was posted online and were “liked” by her ex Elon.
Natasha, 27, grew up in Sydney and moved to New York when she was 19 to attend drama school.

Elon confirmed at the time that he and electronic pop singer, real name Claire Elise Boucher, were planning to co-parent their one-year-old son, according to Page Six.
“We are half separated but we still love each other, see each other frequently and are on good terms,” Elon said.
The CEO of SpaceX and Tesla explained: “It’s mostly that my job at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be mostly in Texas or traveling overseas and her job is mostly in Los Angeles. She stays with me now and Baby X is in the next room.”
