During an interview, Elon Musk’s father stated that he is not proud of his son, who has become a millionaire, because he believes that Elon is dissatisfied with his own professional advancement.
Errol Musk, who is 76 years old, was asked about his feelings regarding his son Elon’s achievements during the peculiar interview that took place on Monday with the Australia radio program The Kyle and Jackie O Show.
Errol’s response was, “No. You should know that we are a family that has been involved in many activities for a very long time; it’s not like we just started getting involved in something out of the blue.”
The father Musk was afforded more than just the opportunity to criticize his offspring during the course of the conversation.
Errol’s interview touched into the recent news that he fathered two children with his stepdaughter, 35-year-old Jana Bezuidenhout, in addition to discussing Elon, which was the primary focus of the discussion.
Bezuidenhout was only four years old when Errol, who is 42 years her senior, took on the role of stepfather for her. He described the nature of his interaction with her as “very typical.”
These comments were a repetition of those that he had said earlier in which he asserted, “The only thing we are on Earth for is to reproduce.”
“I can’t think of a single good reason not to.”
Errol acknowledged in the interview that he gave on Monday that his brother Elon, who is the CEO of SpaceX and the founder of Tesla, had accomplished a great deal more than his other brothers.
Errol remarked of his family, “They’ve seen a lot of things, and we’ve done a lot of things together,” in reference to his family’s travels to China, the Amazon jungle, and other locations.
“We’ve done a lot of things together,” he said. “However, Elon has in point of fact kind of truly beyond the benchmark.”
Errol Musk followed his discussion of his son by stating that the younger Musk believes he is “behind schedule” in terms of where he wants his various enterprises to go and that he is “not as pleased as he’d want to be.”
Errol explained, “I can understand where he’s coming from; he’s disappointed with the development.” “I am fully aware that this may seem absurd, but in all honesty, that is the way that our family tends to think.
Even though he is fifty years old at this point, I can’t help but picture him as a little child. But he’s 50, and that makes him an elderly man in my book.”
During the course of the conversation, Errol Musk referred to his second son, Kimbal Musk, as the “pride and joy” of his life. This was in comparison to Elon.
According to Business Insider, Kimbal is a restaurateur as well as a chef, and his estimated net worth is in the neighborhood of $700 million. However, Errol stated that Kimbal was also a billionaire.
The interview with Errol took place on Monday, just a few days after his son made the decision to file a countersuit against Twitter.
This decision brought Errol’s legal battle with the social media giant over his attempts to back out of a $44 billion purchase agreement to a new level.
