Elon Musk ‘Pleading’ With Ex Natasha Bassett To Take Him Back After Split

Elon Musk isn't having the easiest time handling the breakup with ex Natasha Bassett -- and he wants to be with her again.

For nearly a week, Elon Musk, 51, has been soaking up the sun in Mykonos — surrounded by friends and a bevy of beautiful women. Prior to his Grecian getaway, the billionaire Tesla founder’s girlfriend, Natasha Bassett, 27, ended their relationship to focus on her acting career following the highly successful debut of her latest film, Elvis.  But a source close to the former couple told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that he was not handling the breakup as well as he had hoped and that “Elon was pleading with Natasha to get back together with him prior to taking off on this trip to Mykonos, but she kept shutting him down.”

Recent photographs of Elon partying on the yacht did not help his chances, either. On Sunday, July 17, photos surfaced that showed Elon laughing and frolicking in the water with several different beautiful women in Mykonos. The following day, on July 18, photos appeared, which showed Elon shirtless while surrounded by more beautiful women on a friend’s yacht in the waters off the coast of the gorgeous celeb summer hot spot.

“Natasha and those around her believe that Elon was trying to make her jealous by being photographed with all of these gorgeous women,” the source told us. “But this did not make Natasha jealous. This type of behavior is one of the reasons that Natasha decided to end the relationship, and all this does is reassure her that she made the right choice.”

As HollywoodLife previously reported, Natasha’s decision to split with Elon came after he confirmed that he secretly fathered twins with Neuralink exec Shivon Zilis. The twins bring Elon’s total number of children to 10. And although Natasha’s decision to leave Elon allegedly had nothing to do with the twins, who were born in November 2021, the source told us that Natasha “is completely done with this relationship.”

HollywoodLife was the first outlet to EXCLUSIVELY report that Elon was dating Natasha after the two deplane his jet in Los Angeles on February 17. We were also the first outlet to EXCLUSIVELY reveal that Natasha ended the romance. We reached out to reps for both Elon and Natasha, but have not heard back from either party.
