Elon Musk laughs at wild reports that he broke up with Google co-founder Sergey Brin’s wife — he sent The Post a photo of himself hanging out happily with his old friend, even as the rumors spread.
Musk, 51, insisted that the claims of an affair with Nicole Shanahan, his bestie’s estranged wife, were “total bs” — even joking, “I haven’t even had sex in ages (sigh).”
The world’s richest man also sent The Post a photo of him partying with Brin, 48, who is believed to have cooled down their bromance after the alleged betrayal.
“This photo was taken just two hours ago,” Musk told The Post of the photo of him smiling while rubbing the shoulder with his fellow billionaire.
The Tesla mogul got serious to forcefully deny the widespread Wall Street Journal report that claimed a December affair was behind Brin’s divorce.
“This photo was taken just two hours ago,” Elon Musk told The Post late Sunday as proof that he was still friends with Google co-founder Sergey Brin.
“Nicole and Sergey’s divorce has absolutely nothing to do with me,” Musk insisted by email.
“I’m sure both Nicole and Sergey would confirm that. I’ve talked to Sergey and Nicole about this and they say the story isn’t from them so [it] must be a case of a broken phone two or three layers away,” he said.

And, to avoid the question, I’ve only seen Nicole twice in three years, both times with lots of other people around.
“We weren’t romantically involved in any way,” he insisted.
The Tesla mogul shared a similar post on Twitter while replying to a post claiming he had “beaten” Shanahan and was “apparently no longer friends” with Brin, who had supported Tesla during the 2008 financial crisis.
“This is total bs,” he tweeted.
Elon Musk called the rumor “total b” on Twitter.
“I haven’t had sex in ages (sigh)”, Musk insisted when the Twitter profile he responded to advised him to “keep your d–k in your pants” because “they’re out on your head.”
When another follower asked if that included not having sex during his recent bust-baring vacation, he insisted, “No.”
Musk joked that he “hasn’t had sex in ages (sigh)”.
He dismissed the report as just the latest example of “character assassination attempts” have reached a new level this year.”
“I work crazy hours so there just isn’t much time for shenanigans. None of the key figures involved in these alleged misdeeds were even interviewed!” He wrote.
He suggested that followers call the WSJ, which “should have a high standard of journalism”.
“WSJ should publish stories that really matter to their readers and have a solid factual basis, not random third-party rumors,” he wrote.
