Ok this is going to sound weird, but here we go. Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla electric cars, SpaceX, and an internet-payment website that became known as PayPal, along with a dozen or more other companies, has a dad who he doesn’t talk to. His dad, Errol, divorced his mom years ago, and remarried. Within that new marriage, Errol became a stepfather to then 4-year-old Jana. Fast-forward 26 years later, Errol and Jana just had a baby together. I think that, if I’m doing the math correctly, Elon Musk’s new baby step-nephew is also his half-brother. This makes Errol’s step-grandson also his own son. I think that’s correct.

Jana had just gone through a breakup, and that’s when she started talking to Errol. See, even though they were related through her mom’s marriage to Errol, they weren’t close, and she didn’t spend much time with Errol as a young child. Errol helped her get through the breakup, and that’s when things started happening. Errol says “We were lonely, lost people. One thing led to another — you can call it God’s plan or nature’s plan.” At first when Jana was pregnant, he assumed that the baby was her ex’s who she had just broken up with. He did the paternity test anyway, and that’s when it was confirmed.

Long story short, Errol talked to one of his other daughters about the situation because he thought she would understand and be sympathetic to it. Word got around the family fast, and now everyone is even more angry with Errol than before, with Elon Musk saying about his estranged father that he’s basically pure evil. “My dad will have a carefully thought-out plan of evil… He will plan evil… You have no idea about how bad. Almost every crime you can possibly think of, he has done. Almost every evil thing you could possibly think of, he has done.” Many more details can be seen here.
