Elon Musk’s mother says she slept on a “mattress or blanket” when she visited her billionaire son, who in the past has said she slept in the garage of her home near the SpaceX launch site.
Elon Musk’s mother Maye Musk has some unusual sleeping arrangements when she visits her son.
On Tuesday, she said on Twitter that she had “many memories of sleeping on a mattress or blanket on the floor, on the couch or on the bed in the garage” when she visited her son.
“This happens to @Kimbal @ToscaMusk and me,” Maye tweeted, also referring to her two other children. “We adapt. It’s still better than sleeping on the ground with lions or hyenas in the Kalahari Desert, which is what I did as a kid.”

Elon’s mother made the comment in response to a tweet in which the billionaire said he “slept on a friend’s couch last weekend.”
Not totally wrong. Slept on a friend’s couch last weekend.

This is not the first time the 74-year-old model has mentioned the sleeping arrangements at her son’s house. She told The Times UK last year that she doesn’t sleep in a proper bedroom when she visits SpaceX’s CEO at Boca Chica, the location of the company’s Texas headquarters and Starbase launch site.
“I have to sleep in the garage,” she told the outlet. “You can’t have a fancy house near a rocket site.”
Elon has said in the past that he does not have a “main residence”, although he does live in a “very small” house in Boca Chica worth $45,000.
“My friends come over and stay and they can’t believe I’m living in this house,” he said earlier this month on “The Full Send” podcast.
He said the home, which is 800 to 900 square feet, “is technically a three-bedroom, but it used to be a two-bedroom” before he converted his garage.
The billionaire also has a $50,000, 375-square-foot prefab tiny home that he uses to host guests.
Elon stated in 2020 that he is “selling almost all material possessions” and “will not have a home.”
When asked in a Times UK interview whether Musk was interested in material assets, May said, “No, not in that sense at all.”
Maye has said that her family was not always that wealthy. When Elon was very young, Maye said she was raising three children as a single mother while pursuing two master’s degrees and establishing a career as a model, dietician and nutritionist. According to the book “A Woman Makes a Plan”. ,
May and her family lived in South Africa before moving to Canada in 1989. He said that at that time he had to do five jobs at once to support his family.
Maye also helped Elon and Kimble start Zip2 – their first business that later became PayPal – and donated their entire savings to help them cover office expenses. He called it “the best investment I ever made” in a 2015 interview with Insider.
