Elon Musk spends NYE with son X amid Grimes legal battle


Controversial X owner Elon Musk – who is currently embroiled in a custody battle with his musician ex Grimes — rang in the New Year with their three-year-old son X Æ A-Xii (or “X” for short) in St. Barts.

The richest man in the world, worth an estimated $251 billion by Forbes, tells us he was on the luxe Caribbean isle to visit a friend for a few days and “just spent time with family and close friends.”

“My son, li’l X, was with me,” he told Page Six.

While a spy had mistakenly told us they spotted Musk dancing with his “arms in the air” at a party thrown by Palm Tree Crew and that he hung with Tom Brady and snowboarder Shaun White, he tells us that’s inaccurate. He said he actually went to a bash at WhatsApp founder Jan Koum’s house “for a few hours” on New Year’s Eve, but generally had a quiet time with friends and family.

“I do recall meeting Shaun White and Tom Brady briefly,” Musk tells us, but it wasn’t at the Palm Tree Crew soiree.

Musk and Grimes have been locked in a contentious battle over X and their two other children, 1-year-old Exa Dark Sideræl, and Techno “Tau” Mechanicus.

The “Genesis” singer filed a “petition to establish parental relationship” in September in California, which makes the court identify the legal parents of a child when they are unmarried. She had earlier pleaded with Musk to “let me see my son” on social media.

Just three days before Grimes filed, the SpaceX founder had filed suit in Texas seeking to become the kids’ legal parent, claiming he has had “actual care, control, and possession of each child since the birth of each child,” and that the kids were living in the Lone Star State.

The former couple have been fighting it out ever since, battling over jurisdiction and other matters.

Grimes and Musk dated off and on from 2018 until their split in March 2022.

Musk welcomed twins with his Neuralink executive Shivon Zilis in November 2021. He also has triplets Saxon, Kai and Damian, 17, and twins Griffin and Vivian, 19, with ex-wife Justine Wilson.

St. Barts is always a hub for the rich and for the famous this time of year. Other A Listers spotted on the island for the holidays included Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, Jeff Bezos and fiancée Lauren Sánchez, Madonna, Mike Tyson, and Don Lemon and his fiance Tim Malone.
