Is Grimes lesbian? Elon Musk’s ex is reportedly dating whistleblower Chelsea Manning
Hours after Grimes tweeted about splitting with Tesla CEO Elon Musk for the second time, it is being reported that the singer-songwriter is now dating activist and whistleblower Chelsea Manning. The big news comes almost a day after it was revealed that Grimes and Elon Musk had welcomed their second child named Exa Dark Sideræl Musk in December 2021.
According to Page Six, Grimes and Manning are a thing now, and apparently it is getting serious. If the report shared by the publication is to be believed, Grimes and Manning are living together in Austin while the latter still has her apartment in Brooklyn. Social media users quickly thronged to Twitter wondering if the former lover of Elon Musk was lesbian. The Internet also did not shy away from dragging Manning on the micro-blogging site. Elon Musk and Grimes had first split in September 2021after dating for three years. They welcomed their son X Æ A-Xii Musk in May 2020.
Grimes says she and Elon Musk have 'broken up again': Internet says, 'Don't be silly!'
Is Grimes lesbian?
After her first split with Grimes in September 2021, Grimes had joked about starting a lesbian space commune. In an e-mail interview with Page Six back then the musician stated, “I’ll be colonizing [one of Jupiter’s moons] Europa separately from Elon for the lesbian space commune.” The cheeky response seemingly referred to Musk and his SpaceX’s $178 million contract with NASA to help them reach Jupiter’s ice-crusted moon, Europa, to see if it could be inhabitable.
Apart from this, Grimes never really dropped a hint about being lesbian. In fact, she was reportedly papped kissing voice actor and model Noah Centineo at a restaurant in 2021 but nothing really materialized. Circling back to the latest buzz of she dating Manning, the sources told Page Six, “They’re getting serious. They U-Hauled it” adding, “They’ve been living together in Austin.” The two also have been interacting a lot on Twitter off late with the help of likes and replies on Twitter threads. Manning made it to the headlines in early 2010s for leaking hundreds of thousands of documents to WikiLeaks.
The former US soldier, for her part, made headlines in the early 2010s for leaking hundreds of thousands of documents to WikiLeaks. She was sentenced to 35 years in prison after she was found guilty of 20 crimes, including six violations of the Espionage Act. Barack Obama then in 2017 commuted Manning’s remaining prison sentence after she had served seven years and attempted suicide multiple times.
Me and E have broken up *again* since the writing of this article haha, but he’s my best friend and the love of my life, and my life and art are forever dedicated to The Mission now, I think Devin wrote that part of the story rly well.
