Justine Musk (born Jennifer Justine Wilson;[1] born September 2, 1972[2][3]) is a Canadian author. She was the first wife to billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk.

Career[edit]

Musk is author of the contemporary fantasy novel BloodAngel,[4] published in 2005 by the ROC imprint of Penguin Books. Her second book, Uninvited, was released in 2007, and is an unrelated work intended for young adult readers. A sequel to BloodAngel, Lord of Bones, was released in 2008.[5] Musk is one of the first people to ever use a site like Pinterest to plan out a novel.[6]

Personal life[edit]

She married Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and SpaceX, in January 2000. Their first son, Nevada, was born in 2002 and died of sudden infant death syndrome at the age of 10 weeks.[7]

Through IVF, she later gave birth to twin boys, Griffin and Xavier, in 2004; followed by triplets Damian, Saxon and Kai in 2006.[8] On September 13, 2008, she announced that she was divorcing Musk. She later wrote an article for Marie Claire about their relationship.[7] She claims to have been a "model ex-wife", on good terms with Musk's second ex-wife, Talulah Riley.[9][10]
