A 27-year-old Australian actress has captured the heart of tech mogul and world’s wealthiest man, Elon Musk.
Natasha Bassett was photographed last week leaving Musk’s private residence in Los Angeles. Friends confirmed to the Daily Mail that the two began dating shortly after the Tesla CEO split from his last partner, Canadian singer Grimes, five months ago.
One source insisted the actress was captured by the 50-year-old tech executive’s intelligence, not his bank balance.
“She's gorgeous and could have her pick of men but says she adores Elon because he's so smart and interesting to be around,” the friend told the Mail.
“Natasha has been working hard on her career and while Elon is chilled that their relationship is public, he's very supportive of her wish to become famous in her own right, not just as Elon's girlfriend,” the source added.
Bassett is set to star in an upcoming biopic about legendary singer Elvis Presley, where she will play his first girlfriend, Dixie Locke.
The actress starred in TV shows in her native Australia before moving to New York City at the age of 19 on a screenwriting scholarship.
She has since moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting. Her credits include the 2016 comedy “Hail, Caesar!” alongside George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum.
Bassett also played Britney Spears in the unauthorized Lifetime biopic “Britney Ever After,” a decision criticized by the pop icon’s fans. The actress initially defended Spears’s life as a feminist story but spoke out in 2021 as details emerged about her conservatorship.
The Bloomberg Billionaires Index lists Musk as the richest man in the worth with an estimated net worth of $231 billion, to the chagrin of Amazon CEO and current number two, Jeff Bezos.
Musk has one son with Grimes, 33, named X AE A-Xii and five sons with his first wife, author Justine Musk. He has also married and divorced British actress Talulah Riley twice.
