Grimes sues Elon Musk over parental rights of their three children

Grimes sues Elon Musk over parental rights of their three children – weeks after she begged the Tesla founder to allow her to see their toddler son

  • Genesis singer Grimes filed petition in California court last month
  • The couple share children X Æ A-Xii, Exa Dark Sideræl and Techno Mechanicus
  • It comes weeks after Grimes tweeted ‘let me see my son’

Singer Grimes is suing her ex partner Elon Musk over parental rights of their three children.

The performer, real name Claire Boucher, filed a ‘petition to establish parental relationship’ on September 29 in a California court.

The petition is a means of identifying a child’s legal parents when they are unmarried.

It can be used to begin proceedings for child custody orders and child support orders.

While the docket for the case is public the filings have been sealed, Page Six reports.

Musk and Grimes’ firstborn is a boy named X Æ A-Xii (pictured with his dad during a meeting with Hungarian president Katalin Novák last month) who the couple refer to as X

Musk took X to his meeting with the Hungarian president where the two discussed the demographic crisis 

It does not appear that the X, formerly Twitter, owner has responded to Grimes’ petition.

The Canadian singer, 35, is also yet to request child support or custody rights.

The petition comes just weeks after Grimes issued a public plea to Musk, 52, to see their son. 

In a now-deleted tweet to Shivon Zilis, Musk’s current partner and mother of his twins, Grimes said: ‘Tell Shivon to unblock me and tell Elon to let me see my son or plz respond to my lawyer.

‘I have never even been allowed to see a photo of these children until this moment, despite the situation utterly ripping my family apart.’

Grimes and Musk began dating in 2018 and share three children together. Their firstborn son, named X Æ A-Xii, was born in May 2020.

Their only daughter, Exa Dark Sideræl, nicknamed Y, was welcomed via surrogate in December 2021, the same year the couple split.

Last month it emerged the couple had secretly had a third son, Techno Mechanicus. Little is known about the child, affectionately known as Y, including his exact date of birth.

Details of his arrival were included in Walter Isaacson’s biography of Musk and bring the Tesla co-founder’s brood to 10.

Last week Musk was snapped with X in tow at a meeting with Hungarian President Katalin Novák for talks on the world’s demographic crisis.

He met with the politician in Austin, Texas, after he was unable to make the biannual Demographic Summit in Budapest last week to discuss population collapse.

The entrepreneur, who has fathered 11 children, took to X after the meeting to write: ‘Having children is saving the world’.

Musk is a dad to twins Griffin and Vivian Musk, 18,  and triplets Kai, Jaxon and Damian Musk, 16, with his first wife Justine Wilson. The couple also had a son Nevada who died at 10 weeks of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

He also shares 17-mont-old twins Azure and Strider with Zilis.

Shortly after the birth of his first child with Grimes, the couple revealed they had to change his name slightly from X Æ A-12 to X Æ A-Xii in order for it to comply with Californian laws.

 Yesterday Grimes once again hit back at backlash over her son X’s name, calling it ‘the most bizarre criticism’.

Responding to a post online which questioned the choice she said of her son: ‘He loves his name and mostly ppl think it’s cool. X men etc. x is popular at school lol. 

‘Also, I don’t wanna say his friends names cuz they’re civilians but most millennials named their kids weird names – not just me.’
