The Washington Post published an article alleging that Elon Musk had an affair with the wife of Google Co-Founder Sergey Brin. Musk vehemently denies this claim, posting on Twitter: "This is total bs. Sergey and I are friends and were at a party together last night! I've only seen Nicole twice in three years, both times with many other people around. Nothing romantic."
Musk later posted, "Yeah, the character assassination attacks have reached a new level this year, but the articles are all nothing-burgers. I work crazy hours, so there just isn’t much time for shenanigans. None of the key people involved in these alleged wrongdoings were even interviewed!"
