Meet Talulah Riley, the Two-Time Ex-Wife of Elon Musk

Riley was married to Elon Musk twice — she first married the tech mogul in 2010, but the pair divorced two years later. The couple reconciled and wed again the following year only to get divorced again in 2016.

Riley and Musk first met in a bar in London in 2008, according to Cosmopolitan. The couple got married in Dornoch Cathedral in the UK two years after they met.

Riley was Musk’s second wife — but in an undated article from Marie Claire, Musk’s first wife, Justine Wilson, said she and Riley had no bad blood between them. 

“She is, by all accounts, a lovely, bright, and very young person, and better fitted to my ex-husband’s lifestyle and personality than I ever was,” Wilson wrote in the article.

Riley and Musk initially married in 2010 but divorced in 2012. They later rekindled their romance and remarried in 2013 before divorcing again in 2016.  

Riley told The Independent in a July interview she knew it was “strange” to marry and divorce Musk — twice. 

“I suppose the reason to get remarried was just because it felt silly to be together unmarried after having been married. You know, it’s like a habit. We were saying, ‘This is my husband.’ ‘This is my wife.’ ‘Oh, wait, no, we’re not that anymore. We better be that again,” Riley told the UK newspaper.

Riley added that she had a “very deep love and connection” with Musk and that he remained a “great friend” even after their divorce.

“He looks out for me. We are in a happy place now, where we’re good to each other, which is really nice. I have the utmost love for him,” she told The Independent.
