Elon Musk Explains How He Made Money During College And Early Adulthood

Elon Musk Donates $1Million To Popular YouTuber Mr Beast For #TeamTrees

Tesla CEO Elon Musk had parents who owned an emerald mine, so of course he came from an incredibly rich family, right? Well, no, not according to Elon himself as he fought against the rumour on Twitter earlier this weekend after he started discussions about his Boring Company‘s mission to build traffic reducing underground tunnels.

Conversation quickly turned to how Elon Musk became so rich, and this brought out a number of different rumours. The main rumour being that his parents owned an emerald mine in South Africa.

Elon swiftly corrected the Tweet, and later on added to his story with a series of later tweets.

It’s safe to say that there are plenty of news outlets that are willing to spread false information about Elon Musk to get clicks, so the fact that Elon is so active on Twitter means that these rumours can easily be corrected. It’s just down to use to make sure this information is spread.
