There is no doubt that Elon Musk is a genius when it comes to technology and business and the world’s richest man.
However, many people don’t know that he has also had high-profile relationships with some fantastic women.
One of those women is Talulah Riley, who he married twice! This blog post will take a closer look at Talulah Riley and learn more about her life and relationship with Elon Musk.
Talulah Riley is not a woman who is afraid to take risks. She has made a career out of it.
This British actress has starred in films such as “Pride and Prejudice” and “Inception.” But you may not know that she is also the wife of entrepreneur Elon Musk.
Riley married Elon Musk twice but is now divorced.
This story is even more interesting because they are battling a messy court over their assets.
This blog post will look closely at Talulah Riley and her life with Elon Musk.
Riley’s Early Life And Career
Talulah Jane Riley-Milburn is an English actress and writer born on September 26, 1985.
Riley is the only child of Doug Milburn, the former head of the National Crime Squad, and Una Riley, the proprietor of a security systems company and a public relations firm.
Riley grew up in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. Her father has written episodes of Silent Witness, Prime Suspect, and The Bill as of October 2021
Riley attended independent Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls, Berkhamsted Collegiate School, and Cheltenham Ladies College.
She pursued a degree in Natural Sciences at the Open University while acting in London.
She has acted in movies including Pride & Prejudice (2005), St Trinian’s (2007), and St Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold (2009), as well as Inception, The Boat That Rocked (2009), and Inception 2. (2010), Thor: The Dark World. Riley portrays Angela on the HBO science fiction Western television series Westworld (2016-2018) and Vivienne Westwood in the FX miniseries Pistol (2022).
In 2014, Riley co-founded the Elon Muse fashion label with Amna Abu Sulayman. The brand was aimed at “the modern muses of the world” and was based in Los Angeles and Dubai. However, the label ceased operations after just one year.
Meeting Elon Musk
It is believed that Talulah Riley and Elon Musk first met in 2008 at a London nightclub.
This was when Musk was going through a difficult divorce from his first wife, Justine Wilson.
The two started dating and married just a few months later, in 2010.
Talulah’s Marriage To Elon Musk
They married in 2010 at Scotland’s Dornoch Cathedral. Musk broke their relationship in January 2012, and in March 2012, he filed for divorce.
Musk and Talulah Riley got wedded in July 2013. In a 60 Minutes interview in 2014, the pair revealed that they had patched up their relationship and were once more cohabitating alongside Musk’s five living children from his first marriage to writer Justine Musk.
Musk submitted a second divorce petition on December 31, 2014, but later withdrew it.
Riley and Musk never had biological children together, but she said in an interview with The Independent that she had to put Musk’s family’s needs ahead of hers.
Talulah Riley stepped back from her acting career to be a step-mum Elon Musk, Talulah Riley and Musk’s children from his previous marriage with Justine Musk.
Even so, “it wasn’t a traditional housewife role. “I mean, there were the rockets and the cars, and things were blowing up… a lot was going on – a lot that was very stimulating,” Riley told the publication.
She added that she and Musk’s children were “very involved” in Musk’s projects, describing their relationship as a “family-wide effort.”
Riley filed for a second divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court on March 21, 2016, after six months of living apart.
Talulah and Elon divorced in 2012 but remarried in 2013. However, they ultimately divorced for the second time in 2016.
Riley’s Second Marriage With Musk
Riley told The Independent interview she knew it was “strange” to marry and divorce Musk — twice.
“I suppose the reason to get remarried was just because it felt silly to be together unmarried after having been married. You know, it’s like a habit. We were saying, ‘This is my husband.’ ‘This is my wife.’ ‘Oh, wait, no, we’re not that anymore. We better be that again,” Riley told the UK newspaper.
Riley added that she had a “very deep love and connection” with Musk and that he remained a “great friend” even after their divorce.
“He looks out for me. We are in a happy place now, where we’re good to each other, which is really nice. I have the utmost love for him,” she told The Independent.
Riley Is Dating British Actor Thomas Brodie-Sangster
The “Pistol” co-stars started dating in August 2021 when Riley and Brodie-Sangster were captured in photographs by celebrity news outlet Backgrid holding hands in London. In March, the couple appeared publicly at the British Academy Film Awards Gala Dinner.
The roles that Brodie-Sangster played in “Love, Actually” and the “Maze Runner” series is what made him most well-known. Additionally, he made appearances in “The Queen’s Gambit” and “Game of Thrones.”
Riley currently resides in Hertfordshire with Brodie-Sangster and her pets. In a May interview with The Times, Riley explained how her friendship with Brodie-Sangster developed unanticipatedly.
Riley added in the interview, “We hadn’t indeed acknowledged each other as a romantic possibility or prospective until the moment that we both did. And several months after they had worked together and become excellent friends, it was the exact moment.
Elon Musk’s ex-wife Talulah Riley remains on good terms despite their roller-coaster relationship.
Although she split – for the second time – from Musk in 2016, she recently cemented her friendship with him after appearing on the BBC documentary: The Elon Musk Show.
