Elon Musk, 50, has moved on from his ex Grimes with girlfriend Natasha Bassett. The 29-year-old actress, who is starring in the new Elvis biopic, was first spotted leaving the Tesla CEO’s private jet on Thursday, February 17. She tried to protect her identity with a long black trench coat and sunglasses but a source close to Elon confirmed to HollywoodLife that the “mystery woman” is in fact Natasha and weighed in on their relationship status. Our insider claimed Elon and Natasha “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.”
On Memorial Day weekend 2022, Elon even took Natasha as his date to agent Ari Emanuel‘s star-studded wedding in St. Tropez, France. The pair were spotted having a romantic seaside lunch the following day.
Here’s everything you need to know about Elon’s girlfriend of the last few months!
1. Natasha Played Britney Spears
Natasha played one of the biggest pop icons of all time– Britney Spears. The “Toxic” singer has been making headlines for breaking free from the oppressive conservatorship she was placed under by her family. However, Natasha played the singer in the early #FreeBritney days in 2017 in a film for Lifetime. The TV film was met with plenty of criticism but it was a breakout role for the young actress, who was 23 years old when it was made.
Although Britney’s creative team made it clear that she was not involved with the making of the movie and did not approve of it, Natasha thought it painted Brit in “a really positive light.” She also wanted to do the “Circus” singer justice. “I have so much respect and admiration for Britney and what attracted me to doing this movie is that it’s truly a feminist story at its core,” she told Us Weekly at the time. “And as a feminist myself, I was inspired to tell the story of a woman’s journey. She was faced with so many challenges, but she comes out at the end so strong and on top.”
2. Natasha Is In The Upcoming Elvis Biopic
Natasha has a big role in the upcoming Elvis biopic. She plays Elvis Presley’s first girlfriend Dixie Locke in the film.

She announced in the caption that Elvis will be in theaters on June 24, 2022!
She was front and center at the premiere in May 2022 at the Cannes Film Festival, even bringing Elon’s mother Maye Musk, 74, as her date, HollywoodLife reported EXCLUSIVELY. “Elon and Natasha are still going strong and over time Natasha has developed a solid bond with his mother Maye. Maye is the most important person in Elon’s world and the fact that she adores Natasha means so much to him,” the insider spilled.

They have the best view.” She also has a hiking Instagram Story collection pinned to the top of her profile.
5. Natasha Is Passionate About Giving Back
Natasha also uses her platform to raise awareness around important issues like global warming and animal rights.

Their goal is to treat, rehabilitate and release sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife,” she captioned the post. “I watched the nurses rehabilitate a sick koala who is on the road to recovery. Once the koalas are fully recovered, usually after about 6 weeks, they’ll be dropped directly back to where they were found.”
