Elon Musk’s ex-wife, Justine Wilson, has reportedly revealed the Tesla CEO’s ‘darkest secret’.
The billionaire’s life was explored in an episode of Life Stories and, during the show, his ex was shown opening up about his childhood, claiming that he struggled to fit in with his peers.
She said: “He told me that when he was a kid he hated going to school because the other kids liked to follow him home and throw soda cans at his head.

“In high school, we called them geeks. It was not a compliment.”
One of the reasons that Musk reportedly found his younger years difficult was because he has Asperger’s syndrome.
This didn’t come out until he hosted Saturday Night Live earlier this year.
At the time, he opened up to viewers and said: “I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s to host SNL… Or at least the first to admit it.”
He continued: “I know I sometimes say or post strange things, but that’s just how my brain works.
“To anyone I’ve offended, I just want to say, I reinvented electric cars and I’m sending people to Mars in a rocket ship.
“Did you think I was also going to be a chill, normal dude?”
Recalling this feeling of being ‘different,’ he told Joe Rogan during a podcast that at some points in his childhood, he felt ‘insane’.
Musk admitted: “I thought I was insane because it was clear that other people did not have their minds exploding with ideas.
“I hoped they wouldn’t find out because, like, they put me away or something.”
