Elliot Rush Musk is famous because of his blood connection with the world's richest man, Elon Musk. He is Elon's half-brother. Born in 2017, he is one of the youngest members of the Musk family.
Elliot made it to the news when he was born, but not for good reasons. It was because of his parents. So, who are his parents, and why was his birth considered controversial by some? Well, let's find out.
Elliot & Elon Musk Have The Same Father But Not Mother
Earlier, we mentioned the controversy surrounding Elliot Rush Musk's birth. He is the son of Errol Musk and Jana Bezuidenhout. It made the news for all the wrong reasons because of Elliot's parent's relationship.
By relationship, Jana is Errol's stepdaughter. Yes, you heard it right. He had a kid with his stepdaughter. You are probably disgusted hearing about it. And, so, the controversy happened.
On the other hand, Errol doesn't seem to be affected by any of it and has defended his actions. He believes the only reason we are here is to make babies. This is what he said regarding it:
The only thing we are on Earth for is to reproduce. I can’t see any reason not to.
He Has A Sister As Well
Elliot Rush Musk wasn't the only child who arrived from the contentious relationship between Errol Musk and Jana Bezuidenhout. It is known that they also had another kid, Errol's sister.
It is yet to be known what the daughter's name is. Sources claim that she was born two years later after Elliot in 2019. However, the news of the second child was only revealed by them much later. Even though Errol and Jana are no longer together, they have kept their kids away from the media, especially their daughter.
Elliot's Father's Marriage With Jana's Mother
Errol Musk, before Jana Bezuidenhout, was in a relationship with Heide Bezuidenhout. As mentioned above, Jana is the daughter of Heide. He and Heide were married together for eighteen years. Even though Jana isn't his daughter, he raised her like one.
Errol was married to Heide in 1992. It is known that Heide's previous husband had died in a car crash, and she found herself in the arms of Elliot's father.
How Much Is His Father's Net Worth?
Elliot Rush Musk is still too young to be working and making money. So, instead, we will be looking at the wealth of his father, Errol Musk. His father has an estimated net worth of $2 Million.
Errol's wealth can be attributed to the various professions that he worked on. He has worked as an engineer, pilot, and even in real estate. However, he is not the wealthiest member of the Musk family.
The Musk family is enormous, and the richest one in the family is easily Elon Musk. It's not even a contest. The world's second richest man at the time of this writing, with Bernard Arnault and Family taking over, has an estimated net worth of $163.5 billion.
Heide Bezuidenhout Isn't Errol's Only Wife
It looks like Elliot's father loves marriage. Before Heide, Errol was married to a woman named Maye Musk. The two relationships started in high school.
This ex-couple, Maye and Errol, were married in 1970 and divorced nine years later in 1979. He also had three kids from this marriage. They are Kimbal Musk, Tosca Musk, and his most famous child Elon Musk.
His Father Is An Abusive Husband
Having kids with his stepdaughter is not the only thing that Errol is known for. It is now known that man is abusive, as Elon Musk's mother has revealed from her marriage to him.
Maye Musk has revealed how her marriage with her husband went while talking to PageSix. Eileen Reslen, in her article, has written about how her husband would try to assault him. She said:
When my husband was actually going to beat me up at a social event, my friends took me to my mom’s home, and she didn’t know that I was getting beaten up. I didn’t share it with her. I didn’t share it with my friends until they saw it publicly, and after that he wasn’t allowed to beat me.
The same article also mentions that Maye would have quit the marriage long ago if it wasn't for the law. They are from South Africa, and the country's Divorce Act was only introduced on July 1, 1979. That's the same year she ended her marriage with him.
Does Errol Have More Kids?
Errol has said that people are only here in this world to reproduce. So that begs the question if he has more kids or not. Well, there have been several women who have claimed that Errol is the father of their kids, which Errol has denied.
Errol has talked about many women claiming their kids as his and said they are doing it for publicity and his money. Barsha Roy, one of the writers of SportsKeeda, mentioned in her article what Errol said in an interview regarding all of these controversies.
I have about six people, women who claim that their child is my child right now. Obviously they are opportunists. [But] there was a period in Johannesburg in the ’80s that I was going out with a different woman every night. I had plenty of dates. So it’s quite conceivable that one of them could actually come back and say, ‘This is your child.’ It’s possible.
Elliot's Father Hates Elon Musk
It seems like Elliot Rush Musk's father doesn't have a good relationship with his son Elon Musk. That is what we can make out from his interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show.
In the interview, he claimed his son isn't happy with his accomplishments while also making comparisons with his other son, Kimbal Musk. The Guardian has reported on Errol's interview, and this is what he had to say about the CEO of Tesla:
He is frustrated with progress and it’s understandable. I know it sounds crazy, but we tend to think like that as a family. He’s 50 now and I still think of him as a little boy. But he’s 50, I mean that’s an old man.
Errol and Elon didn't have the best of relationships. There were also rumors that Elon, whose own marriage with Justine Musk didn't end well, was angry when he had Elliot with his stepdaughter Jana. When Elon left South Africa, his father told him he wouldn't make it anywhere and would return home in three months. Of course, that didn't happen, as we all know what Elon went on to achieve.
More About His Elliot's Father
Errol Musk was born in 1976 in South Africa. Besides all of his interviews, his achievements can't be ignored. He is an electromagnetic engineer and entrepreneur and even loves adventures as a pilot and a sailor.
Errol is in a lot of news for things he says, and it's mainly negative. In one such instance, he claimed that he co-owned Emerald Mine, to which Elon noted that his father wasn't telling the truth.
