Elon Musk Sleeping On Couch Lollll Scaled

The world’s richest man who wants to take Twitter private has seemingly gotten rid of several of his worldly possessions, and currently doesn’t own a house.

In an interview with the head of TED Chris Anderson, which aired yesterday, Monday, April 18th, Anderson questioned Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk about wealth inequality and how people are hugely offended by the notion that an individual can possess the same wealth as a billion or more of the world’s poorest people.

Musk replied by saying, “For sure it would be very problematic if I was consuming billions of dollars in personal consumption, but that is not the case. In fact, I don’t even own a home right now. I’m literally staying at a friend’s places. If I travel to the Bay area, which is where most of Tesla engineering is, I basically rotate through friends’ spare bedrooms.”

I am selling almost all physical possessions. Will own no house.

Musk tweeted back in 2020 that he is selling all his physical possessions, and since has sold off seven of his California homes for about $128 million. The SpaceX CEO was last reported to be living in a $50k house at SpaceX’s Starbase site in Boca Chica, Texas, and it is unknown when he started couch hopping.

My primary home is literally a ~$50k house in Boca Chica / Starbase that I rent from SpaceX. It’s kinda awesome though.

Only house I own is the events house in the Bay Area. If I sold it, the house would see less use, unless bought by a big family, which might happen some day.
