This is the man we are trusting with the future of electric cars?

Cock tax is evil and men are stupid.

But none are more stupid than Elon Musk who has divorced his wife for the second time.

When the South African billionaire Elon Musk split up with his wife Talulah Riley for the first time, he told the whole world.

“It was an amazing four years. I will love you forever,” the entrepreneur tweeted to the British actress in January 2012. “You will make someone very happy one day.”

Eighteen months later, that happy person appeared to be him as the couple tied the knot again in July 2013.

Yet the rekindled romance did not last. On Wednesday – the day many people make vows for the coming year – the couple officially split up for the second time. Mr Musk filed for divorce in a Los Angeles court on New Year’s Eve.

The couple said they were splitting amicably and that Mr Musk agreed to give Riley $16 million in cash and other assets as part of a financial settlement, according to a joint statement. The divorce papers said property would be split based on a prenuptial agreement.

The couple first wed in 2010. They had no children together, but Mr Musk has five sons from a previous marriage.   

Mr Musk and Ms Riley, who has featured in such films as Pride and Prejudice and St Trinians, were together for a year after they remarried. However they have lived apart the past five months while Ms Riley wrote and directed her first feature film, “Scottish Mussel” in the UK.

The two said they remain friends. This time round, Mr Musk has not tweeted news of the divorce.

Before his marriage to Ms Riley, Mr Munk was married to Canadian novelist Justine Musk for eight years. She later described herself as his “starter wife”.

After their split, her blog became an internet sensation with millions around the world logging on for regular updates.

In a later magazine interview she said: “As we danced at our wedding reception, Elon told me, “I am the alpha in this relationship.” I shrugged it off, just as I would later shrug off signing the postnuptial agreement, but as time went on, I learned that he was serious.”

Mr Musk responded by denying on his website that he had “run off” with Ms Riley.

He said: “It is worth mentioning that Talulah, as anyone who knows her would attest, is one of the most kind hearted and gentle people in the world. The cliché that has been propagated, of me abandoning a devoted wife to “run off” with a young actress, could not have been more falsely applied.”
