The Musk Family Drama
Errol Musk is the father of the world’s richest man, Elon Musk. Yes, Musk can sometimes vary between 1-2-3, but as of June 2023, he is again the wealthiest man in the world. The father-son duo has publicly spoken about the battles in their relationship.
But the drama involving Jana Bezuidenhout is definitely the biggest one. It raised the most eyebrows. In an interview with an Australian radio show, The Kyle and Jackie O Show, Errol opened up about his relationship with Jana.
He admitted to having two children with his stepdaughter, explaining he has been married to her mother Heide for two years during the 1990s.
Errol and Elon’s relationship
Errol Musk has seven children. His son has 10. Fun fact: Errol has two children with his stepdaughter. The Musk family name is one of the most recognizable on the planet, but little do we know about the patriarch of the big family, Errol Musk.
Unlike his son, Errol has flown under the radar for a large part of his life. He began his business by owning an emerald mine in Zambia, and at one point, he made more money than he could physically handle.
He said, “We were very wealthy. We had so much money at times we couldn’t even close our safe”. He explained that one person would hold the money down while a second would slam the safe door shut. And there would still be notes sticking out.
As for his relationship with SpaceX founder, Errol admits they have an acrimonious relationship. The two are estranged.
In one interview, Elon called his father a terrible human being and an evil person. He said, “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 … It’s so terrible, you can’t believe it.”
He also said there is no way to repair that relationship. Elon explained, “In my experience, there is nothing you can do. Nothing, nothing. I wish. I’ve tried everything. I tried threats, rewards, intellectual arguments, emotional arguments, everything to try to change my father for the better, and he… no way, it just got worse.”
On the other side, Errol says that “Elon needs to grow up and get over himself”. He added in an interview with Daily Mail, “I’m not going to hit back. I’m going to wait until he comes to his senses. He’s having a tantrum, like a spoilt child. He can’t have what he wants and now I am apparently an evil monster”.
Now let’s talk about Jana Bezuidenhout, the woman in the middle of the family drama. She gave birth to a baby girl in 2019, a daughter with her stepfather Errol Musk. They have another child, Elliot Rush, which they welcomed in 2017.
Errol is her stepfather, he and her mother Heide have two biological children together. But they also raised Jana, who was 4 when Errol became her stepfather.
Errol and Heide divorced after 18 months of marriage. Jana’s first pregnancy stunned the Musk family and led to a fallout between Elon and his father.
Here is an interesting fact. In one interview, the older Musk said “The only purpose for humans to be on earth is to procreate”.
Speaking about how the family reacted to the news, Errol said, “They still don’t like it. They still feel a bit creepy about it, because she’s their sister. Their half-sister”.
Jana is a South African media personality, born in March 1988. She was only four years old when the wealthy businessman married her mother, Heide Bezuidenhout.
She grew up with Errol as her father figure, along with the rest of her half-siblings. They lived on his property in South Africa. By the time her parents divorced, she was in her early 20s and chose to maintain a relationship with her stepfather.
There is no information about her professional career or educational background. Her Instagram account has been inactive since 2018. In September 2021, she changed her Facebook relationship status to “in a relationship”.
Relationship with Errol Musk
When Errol and Heide split, he did not see or hear from Jana for several years. According to his words, she called him in 2014 to say that she was battling.
Errol explained that she had an eight-year-old daughter at the time. He says he knew Jana was a lovely girl. The wealthy businessman offered to help her and that is how their romantic relationship developed.
They are no longer together as of June 2023.
Their first son Elliot was born in 2017, with their baby girl arriving in 2019.
How Elon Musk Reacted to Their Relationship?
When Errol told Tesla CEO Elon Musk that he has a child with his stepdaughter, Elon told him “he was really busy”. Errol said, “I notified all my children. I said take it or leave it. And my youngest son, Kimbal, his initial reaction was, it happens”.
Elon was, “Okay, I got it, but I am really busy right now. I’ll speak to you in due course”. He then talked about his daughters. They were surprised because Jana is their half-sister.
Loving Her Body
Errol Musk and his first wife Maye Musk have three children together, Elon, Kimbal Musk, and Tosca Musk. When asked if he would love to have a third child with Jana, he replied, “God, are you kidding? Have you seen what she looks like?”
He continued, “I mean, she’s tall. She’s five foot nine. She’s thin. She walks like an antelope, with grace. You watch her walk and you think, Jesus God, what is that? Who walks like that? She has long hands, long fingers. Everything looks good, you know? Her face is so beautiful. There are no words for it”.
Here is an interesting fact, their second child was unplanned. Errol said, “I haven’t checked her DNA. But she looks just like my other daughters. She looks like Rose and Tosca mixed up. She looks exactly like Rushi and she behaves like him. So it’s pretty obvious you know”.
Speaking about the huge age gap, he said, “But I realized she’s two generations behind whereas her mother was one generation behind when I married her. So any man who marries a woman, even if you feel very sprightly, it’s going to be nice for a while. But there’s a big gap … And that gap is going to show itself. I married her mother when she was 25 and I was 45. She was probably one of the best-looking women I’ve ever seen in my life.”
