Elon Musk Says He's Homeless
The Tesla and SpaceX founder is the wealthiest man on the planet, according to ‘Forbes.’
In a recent TED interview, the entrepreneur shared that his life isn’t as luxurious or lavish as it may seem. He shared that he actually doesn’t even own a house and has been couch surfing at his friends’ homes in San Francisco. “I don’t even own a place right now, I’m literally staying at friends’ places… If I travel to the Bay Area, which is where most of Tesla’s engineering is, I basically rotate through friends’ spare bedrooms.”
“I don’t have yacht, I don’t take vacations, so it’s not that my personal consumption is high. One exception is a plane but if I don’t use the plane I have less hours to work,” Musk added. He continued to speak about those who are “hugely offended” by his wealth: “I think there’s some axiomatic flaws that are leading to that conclusion. If, for sure it would be problematic if I was consuming billions of dollars of year in personal consumption but that is not the case.”
As of writing, Musk’s estimated net worth is $269.5 billion USD, according to Forbes.
