Elon Musk has revealed that his newborn son died in his arms as he explained why Alex Jones is banned from Twitter.

Musk, 51, is currently the world’s richest person boasting a wealth of more than $171 billion.

He is the CEO of the electric car company Tesla and the founder and CEO of the space exploration tech company SpaceX.

In October, Musk bought the social media platform Twitter for $44 billion and became CEO – and he’s since made a number of changes.

Away from work, Musk has 10 children but he very rarely talks about them in public.

With his first wife, Canadian author Justine Wilson, 50, the former couple had twins called Griffin and Vivian through IVF in 2004.

Vivian, now 18, came out as transgender in June 2022 when she filed a request to change her first name and took the last name of her mother.

In 2006, Musk and Wilson welcomed triplet sons Kai, Saxon and Damian before they divorced in 2008.

After two marriages to Westworld star Tallulah Riley, 37, and a whirlwind romance with Aquaman actress Amber Heard, 36, Musk started dating singer Grimes, 34, in 2018.

She gave birth to their son, X Æ A-12, in May 2020. The name violated California law as ‘Æ’ and ‘12’ are not part of the alphabet, so the name was shortened to just ‘X’.

Musk and Grimes split in September 2021, but revealed earlier this year that they had had their first daughter, Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, in December 2021 via a surrogate.

Musk also fathered twins with businesswoman Shivon Zilis in November 2021, according to court documents obtained by Business Insider in July 2022.

Now, in an unusually open moment, Musk has discussed his firstborn child’s tragic death in 2002 while confirming conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ continued ban from Twitter.

Jones, 48, is widely known for his extreme right-wing views and the controversy caused by his claims that the 2012 Sandy Hook School shooting was a ‘hoax’.

The Infowars host repeatedly told his millions of followers that the US government had facilitated a fake shooting at the school.

20 children between six and seven-years-old, and six staff members, lost their lives in the tragedy.

After being sued by the victims’ families, Jones was ordered to pay a total of $1.44 billion to them in reparations.

When someone asked Musk this week if Jones might return to the platform under his rule, he said: “My firstborn child died in my arms.

I felt his last heartbeat. I have no mercy for anyone who would use the deaths of children for gain, politics or fame.”

Nevada, who he shared with his ex-wife Wilson, tragically died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome at 10 weeks old in 2002.

In a personal essay for Marie Claire, Wilson wrote: “Nevada went down for a nap, placed on his back as always, and stopped breathing.

“By the time the paramedics resuscitated him, he had been deprived of oxygen for so long that he was braindead.

“He spent three days on life support in a hospital in Orange County before we made the decision to take him off it. I held him in my arms when he died.”
