Elon Musk Visits Pope Francis Breaks Silence on Twitter
Elon Musk has ended a nine-day Twitter blackout to share a surprise visit with four of his seven children to see Pope Francis. He also even joked about his ill-fitting suit.
Musk posted a tweet on Friday night saying “Honored to meet @Pontifex yesterday.” Four of his five teenage children attended the meeting at the Vatican in Rome with him.
Vivian Jenna Wilson, his fifth teen and former Xavier, revealed last month that she is now transgender and no longer wants to be associated with her billionaire father.
Musk also acknowledged that his black tailored outfit was inappropriate for the occasion, responding to a Twitter user who made fun of it by saying, “My suit is tragic.”
Given that Musk has declared himself an atheist, it is unclear why he decided to meet the pope and what the two men talked about.
Griffin, 18, Vivian’s twin brother, and his 16-year-old triplets Damian, Kai, and Saxon traveled with him.
From 2000 to 2008, Musk was wed to their mother, Canadian author Justine Wilson.
Nevada, their first child, passed away from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) at the age of 10 weeks in 2002. Five children were born to Musk and Wilson: twin boys Xavier and Griffin, now 18; triplet boys Damian, Kai, and Saxon, now 16.
