Canadian Artist Initiates Legal Proceedings Involving Their Three Children
Canadian artist and performer Grimes, born Claire Boucher, has initiated legal proceedings against her ex-partner, Tesla co-founder Elon Musk, concerning their three children. Grimes filed a “petition to establish parental relationship” on September 29, as confirmed by court records obtained by Page Six.
The petition seeks to establish the legal parentage of a child when the parents are unmarried. While the docket for the case is publicly accessible, the specific details of the filings have been sealed. As of now, Elon Musk has not responded to Grimes’ petition, and there have been no requests for child support or custody rights.
Grimes, 35, and Musk, 52, began their relationship in 2018, experiencing an on-again, off-again dynamic until their final separation in September 2021. During their time together, they welcomed three children into their family.
Grimes has sued Elon Musk over parental rights, filing a petition last week against the billionaire mogul with whom she has three children, according to a court docket. https://t.co/9zTdjbkuhN

Their firstborn, a son named X Æ A-Xii, was born in May 2020. Later, the couple quietly welcomed their daughter, Exa Dark Sideræl, also known as Y, in December 2021, via a surrogate. In a surprising revelation from journalist Walter Isaacson’s “Elon Musk” biography, it was disclosed that the couple had a third child, a son named Techno Mechanicus, affectionately referred to as Tau. The birthdate of Tau has not been publicly disclosed.
Grimes’ recent legal action follows a plea she made on Twitter, where she implored Elon Musk to grant her access to their son, indicating a possible ongoing dispute regarding parental rights and visitation.
