Maye Musk 'sleeps in the garage' when she visits son Elon in Texas

Elon Musk's mum has admitted she sleeps in the garage when visiting her billionaire son in Texas, shortly after he reveals he couch surfs, despite being worth $229 billion.

“You can’t have a fancy house near a rocket site,” she told The Times, adding that he's not interested in material possessions "at all."

It's thought that Musk's primary residence is a rental from SpaceX worth $50,000, and he's said he would give up all of his belongings to devote his life “to Mars and Earth.”
