After having had a baby with his young step-daughter, he has spoken out about his life and his children's reactions to the news.
Errol Musk, father to tech mogul Elon Musk, has openly bragged about having a baby with his much younger step-daughter after having known her since she was just 4 years old.
As reported by Radar Online, the 72-year-old and his 30-year-old former step-daughter Jana Bezuidenhout had a baby boy together in May of 2017.
Errol claims that he had been consoling her through a breakup when their romance had blossomed.
“We were lonely, lost people,” he explained of the unconventional relationship. “One thing led to another — you can call it God’s plan or nature’s plan.”
Bezuidenhout was just 4 years old when her mother Heidi married Errol. They were married for 18 years, but Errol now claims he never saw Bezuidenhout as his daughter, because she barely spent any time around the family while she was growing up.
Errol does not live with his baby son, but has described him as an "exquisite child." He also explained that Bezuidenhout is a “delightful girl and a wonderful mother.”
When he first told his daughter that he had fathered another child, on the other hand, she was less than ecstatic about the news.
“She said I was insane, mentally ill. She told the others and they went berserk,” he said. “They think I’m getting senile and should go into an old age home, not have a life full of fun and a tiny baby.”
Elon, for his part, has never shared exactly why he and his father are estranged, but an unnamed source who claims to be close to the family stated that his father's paternity scandal and the family affair were the last straw for Elon.
He has not mentioned his new half-brother to the press, but has previously made his disdain for his father well known to the public, calling him a "terrible human being" in 2017.
“My dad will have a carefully thought-out plan of evil. He will plan evil. You have no idea about how bad. Almost every crime you can possibly think of, he has done. Almost every evil thing you could possibly think of, he has done," he said of his father.
