According to a statement from Musk, the duo are “semi-separated.”

They will co-parent their 1-year-old son,  X Æ A-Xii.

“We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms,” Musk told the outlet.

He explained that his career played a role in the split.

“It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room," the billionaire said.

The 33-year-old musician is currently filming a new FOX show called "Alter Ego" where she appears as a judge.

The duo began dating in May 2018. They welcomed baby X in May 2020.

The "Oblivion" singer previously revealed that her son calls her by her first name, Claire, instead of "mom."

"I think having a baby was a big rebirth for me, like artistically," she said, adding, "Being a mother feels weird to say. For some reason, I don't identify with that word."

"Which is also really weird because X, he says 'Claire,' but he doesn't say 'mama.' Which is so...I'm like, 'How are you...?'" she continued. "Like, maybe he can sense my distaste for the word 'mother.'"

The artist and producer added, "I don't even know why I have a distaste for [the word] because I respect…I just, I don't, I can't identify with it, weirdly."
