Elon Musk joked that his Texas garage was a suitable place for his mother after revealing the subpar sleeping conditions whenever she visited the world’s richest man.
The billionaire reacted to the Post article on Sunday about the dodgy living quarters of his mother Maye Musk.
“Yes, but I did a lot with the place!” the 51-year-old replied to Post tweet.
It came after his 74-year-old model mother downplayed the Tesla founder’s living situation, insisting on The temperature that Musk was “not at all interested” in possessions – and that she has to “sleep in the garage” when she visits him.
“You can’t have a fancy house near a rocket site,” she told the outlet.
Muskwhose net worth is estimated at $229 billion, revealed earlier this year that his primary residence is a rental property in Boca Chica – near his SpaceX facility – that is worth just $50,000.
In April, he said he no longer owned a home and that he sleep in friends room bedrooms.
Musk said last year he was selling his real estate portfolio and giving up all tangible assets to dedicate his life “to Mars and Earth.”
