Elon Musk joked that his Texas garage is a suitable place for his mother after she revealed the poor sleeping arrangements every time she visits the world’s richest man.
The billionaire reacted on Sunday to The Post’s article about his mother Maye Musk’s questionable living quarters.
“Yeah, but I’ve done a lot to the place!” replied the 51-year-old Posten’s tweet.
It came after his 74-year-old model mother downplayed the Tesla founder’s living situation, insisting to The Times that Musk was not interested in possessions “at all”[ads1]; – and that she has to “sleep in the garage” when she visits him.
“You can’t have a fancy house near a rocket site,” she told the outlet.
Musk, whose net worth is an estimated $229 billion, revealed earlier this year that his primary residence is a rental property in Boca Chica — near his SpaceX facility — that is worth just $50,000.
In April, he said he no longer owned a home and was sleeping in friends’ spare bedrooms.
Musk said last year that he sold his real estate portfolio and gave up all material possessions to devote his life “to Mars and Earth.”
