Elon Musk’s union with his second wife, Talulah Riley, is over as the judge in their divorce case issued a final decree to officially end their marriage, which was their second. Riley and Musk first married in 2010 and first divorced two years later in 2012. They then remarried 18 months later in 2013, but Musk filed for divorce on New Year’s Eve in 2014, only to withdraw the petition in June of 2015.
Musk is a South American-born Canadian-American business magnate, investor, engineer, and inventor. As of June 2016, he has an estimated net worth of US $11.5 billion, making him the 83rd wealthiest person in the world. He is the founder, CEO, and CTO of SpaceX; co-founder, CEO, and product architect of Tesla Motors; co-founder and chairman of SolarCity; co-chairman of OpenAI; co-founder of Zip2; and founder of X.com which merged with PayPal.
Riley is an English actress who has appeared in films such as Pride & Prejudice, St Trinian’s, The Boat That Rocked, St. Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold and Inception. She was featured on the March 2010 cover of Esquire.
At the time of the first divorce, it was reported that the couple had a prenuptial agreement, which allegedly provided Riley with $16 million. There is no word if the settlement amount in the most recent case is the same, however the prenuptial agreement reportedly provides Riley with a lump sum payment in exchange for a waiver of any spousal support.
According to Musk and RIley, they’ve been separated for the last six months. Through both marriages, the couple had no children. Musk has five children from his first marriage to writer Justine Musk. Riley initiated the current divorce case by filing a divorce petition in March of 2016.
