Finding true love isn’t easy, especially if you’re an entrepreneur who runs one of the world’s largest companies. But it looks like Elon Musk has found the perfect woman to help him de-stress from work—and she’s 24 years old! Welcome to Musk’s life, girlfriend Natasha Bassett!
When and how did they meet?
Elon musk and Natasha Bassett have been romantically linked since June 2015. The couple apparently met at a nightclub in London, where Natasha works as a model. She’s also making plans to move to Los Angeles, just like her boyfriend! It’s unclear how serious their relationship is, but Elon Musk has said that he doesn’t want any more kids—so perhaps she’ll be his queen bee.
The couple reportedly met at a nightclub in London, where Natasha works as a model. After an initial meet-up, they have been dating ever since. She’s also making plans to move to Los Angeles, just like her boyfriend!
Is this an online love story?
Some people are speculating that Natasha Bassett, Elon Musk’s new girlfriend, is actually an online creation. Back in 2012, a profile of Bassett was created on a Russian modelling website by someone who used her real photo and listed her occupation as a self-employed model. The post states that she was 22 years old at the time of publication—but we all know how easy it is to manipulate someone’s age on an internet profile. Musk may be into long shots (pun intended), but he wouldn’t date someone without first doing some research on them… or would he? Maybe Musk prefers redheads after all and Natasha’s just a younger version of Amber Heard?
How did their relationship start?
Well, they say opposites attract, and that’s clearly true in Elon Musk’s case. The billionaire entrepreneur—who previously dated actress Amber Heard—dated musician Grimes in secret for several months. However, some hints of their relationship were on display before they finally made it official. In an Instagram story last August, Grimes shared a selfie with a man who looked like Musk with Elon written across his face.
However, it seems there’s more to their relationship than a simple joke. Just days after posting her Instagram story with Elon’s face, Grimes posted a photo of herself wearing Musk’s signature black Tesla cap and smoking what looks like a joint.
Where have they been spotted together?
Rumours that Elon Musk and Grimes, an electro-pop musician born Claire Boucher, are dating began when they were spotted sitting next to each other at Kanye West’s 2016 New Year’s Eve party. The pair were also photographed together in a photo shared by Grimes. They were seen again in October 2015, attending Burning Man with some friends. And more recently, they have been caught out together on what appears to be date nights; In March of 2017, the paparazzi took photos of them leaving upscale restaurants in Los Angeles together. Although Musk hasn’t gone public about his relationship with Grimes, he does use her song Venus Fly as his phone contact ringtone!
What do we know about Natasha Bassett?
Bassett, who was born in Toronto, also has a handful of acting credits to her name. She played Lila on NBC’s The Blacklist and appeared in Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce on Bravo as Jenny. It’s unclear whether she is still acting or if she plans to quit her day job for Elon. However, at 24 years old, she could be an example of what Tesla CEO Elon Musk is looking for when he says he wants to find a girlfriend between 18 and 20.
While Bassett is still relatively new to Hollywood, she’s not new to dating public figures. Earlier in 2018, Bassett was briefly linked to actor Charlie Sheen after they were spotted hanging out together in Miami. In 2017, she began dating entrepreneur Andrew Warren and was spotted vacationing with him in Bali shortly before news of her relationship with Elon broke. It’s unclear whether Elon has introduced Bassett to his five sons from previous relationships or if he plans to keep his love life separate from his kids—much like how he reportedly keeps them at arm’s length from his business dealings at Tesla.
It’s unclear how much of her free time Bassett gets to spend with Elon and his five children, as she has kept a low profile since news of their relationship broke. According to People magazine, after their first date in late August 2018, they spent hours walking around Piccadilly Circus in London before returning to Elon’s hotel room. It’s unknown whether they have continued seeing each other since then or if Elon will travel to Canada for a romantic rendezvous with Bassett.

She added a caption in which she jokingly referred to him as her stepbrother and tagged him in her post – prompting him to respond and add fuel to the fire by saying: I know…amazing isn’t it?
