Does Elon Musk have a new girlfriend? On Thursday, Feb. 17, the 50-year-old billionaire was photographed by the DailyMail deplaning in Los Angeles — accompanied by a red-haired beauty wearing a trench coat and sunglasses. After being touted as Elon’s “mystery woman,” a source close to the Tesla founder revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife that it is, in fact, Australian-born actress Natasha Bassett, 29, who is set to appear in the upcoming Baz Luhrmann film, Elvis. According to our source, Natasha and Elon “have only been dating for a couple of months, but they are already in a monogamous relationship. They are very much into each other and have been spending a tremendous amount of time together.”
Per IMDB, Natasha plays Elvis Presley’s first girlfriend, Dixie Locke, in the new biopic, directed by Baz Luhrmann. The movie is expected to hit theaters on June 24, with Austin Butler playing The King, and Tom Hanks playing his manager. While the rock and roll film may be one of her first big films, Natasha has been working hard in the movie and TV industries for over a decade, making her debut in the 2009 TV movie Dungoona. She even played Britney Spears in the 2017 Lifetime biopic about the singer. HollywoodLife has reached out to both Natasha and Elon’s reps for confirmation, but did not immediately hear back.
If Elon and Natasha have a budding romance, it will be the billionaire’s first relationship since his split from Grimes, 33, in September 2021. The “Shinigami Eyes” singer and entrepreneur broke up after over three years together. The pair also share a son X Æ A-Xii i, who was born in May 2020. After the couple split, Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, revealed that she was “still living” with Elon in an October Instagram post.
Since breaking up, both Elon and Grimes have been incredibly busy. Grimes has released a handful of songs since she and the SpaceX founder have called it a day. Some of her new tunes even seem to reference the breakup and shade her ex, like in “Player of Games.” Meanwhile, Elon was named the Time “Person of the Year“ for 2021, and he spoke about “a lot of work to do” to help expand his electric car company.Click to Subscribe to Get Our Free HollywoodLife Daily Newsletter to get the hottest celeb news.
