Elon Musk Says He Doesn't Have a Home Right Now and Is Currently Couch Hopping


Elon Musk, currently the richest man in the entire world, says that he does not have a home at the moment. Yes, putting ‘Elon Musk’ and ‘homeless’ together in one statement seems too unbelievable to be true — however, according to the Tesla founder and superstar billionaire, he is couch hopping with the several homes of his friends at the moment. Most believe that this is part of Musk’s personal goal of selling most of his assets to help fund research efforts to improve humanity’s quality of life through his companies such as the previously mentioned automotive company Tesla and aerospace manufacturer Space X.

In an interview with TED’s Chris Anderson, Musk publicly disclosed that he does not own any permanent residence of his own — instead, he relies on the generosity of his friends to get by as he continues to explore more methods to improve and develop humanity and how people live their lives at the moment. It might seem like a tall task for anyone, but with a brilliant mind such as Musk’s taking the lead — it does not come off as a surprise that the tech genius might actually pull it off with enough financial resources and effort.

In the insightful interview which also touched on the future of his companies and his mindset, Musk said, “I don't even own a place right now, I'm literally staying at friends' places. If I travel to the Bay Area, which is where most of Tesla's engineering is, I basically rotate through friends' spare bedrooms." 

It can be remembered that in May 2020, Musk went to Twitter to announce that he will be selling most of his material possessions in order to concentrate on his researching efforts. He wrote online, “I am selling almost all physical possessions. Will own no house.” However, he continued the thread by adding one condition, “Just one stipulation on sale: I own Gene Wilder’s old house. It cannot be torn down or lose any its soul.” 

While Musk seems to be living a simple life — some of his most recent moves seem to say otherwise. And one of the biggest news to date is his acquisition of Twitter for $44 billion. It is baffling that he would make such a large purchase but invests no money into a home and very little into philanthropy and social welfare causes to benefit the community. His spending choices definitely raised a valid question on social media questioning his ethics and morality. Nonetheless, his Twitter grab has impressed myriads of onlookers who anticipate that his takeover will make the platform even better!
