Australian actress Natasha Bassett is reportedly dating Elon Musk, the richest man on Earth who has a net worth of about $233 billion.
It seems like Bassett caught the eye of Tesla’s CEO after he split up with his long-time partner Grimes in September 2021.
Bassett claims she isn’t in it for the money
The 27-year old Australian actress claimed that it was Musk’s brains that she fell for and “not his bank balance.”
According to sources, the pair has gone exclusive after seeing each other for a couple of months now. “Bassett has been seeing Elon for some time”, said Daily Mail. “They were friends first and only became romantic after he split with Grimes.”
Even after their split, Claire Boucher, or Grimes, had apparently still been living with her 50-year old ex-partner till October. But that seemed to have changed ever since Musk started dating Bassett.
“She’s gorgeous and could have her pick of men but says she adores Elon because he’s so smart and interesting to be around”, Daily Mail’s report claimed.
It also stated that even though Bassett and Musk have “only beeb dating for a couple of months”, they have already committed to each other “in a monogamous relationship”. “They are very much into each other and have been spending a tremendous amount of time together”, the source concluded.
