If Elon Musk sometimes comes off as a little creepy and intense, he’s actually as easy-breezy as Tom Hanks compared to his pops Errol Musk who Page Six reports had a baby with his stepdaughter, Jana Bezuidenhout. Errol married Jana’s mom when Jana was 4 years old and they now have a 10 month old baby named Elliott. Errol is 72, Jana is 30. As Errol was awarded his bronze medal in the Creep Olympics (Fucked Up Family Tree division) he called baby Elliot an “exquisite child” and said it was “God’s Plan”. Neither God or Drake approve of this message.
Here’s Errol’s version of reality. According to Page Six:
He claimed he did not think of Elliot’s mom, Jana Bezuidenhout, as his stepdaughter — since she was raised away from the family. Years later, after they split, “One thing led to another — you can call it God’s plan or nature’s plan,” Errol said.
I’m sure Woody Allen and Soon Yi sent them a lovely gift basket with a card that read “welcome to the club!”. Sadly it seems the bond between father and child and child’s child sounds like it’s a little more tenuous in the Musk family. Elon is estranged from his father and called him evil and a “terrible human being”. That might explain Errol’s less than romantic handling of the news that he was going to be a daddy again.
When she told him she was pregnant, Errol assumed her ex was the father and insisted on a DNA test. It proved Errol was the dad.
“Jana is a delightful girl and a wonderful mother,” he told the British paper. “She said I changed her life.” He said he helps support his 30-year-old stepdaughter and their son, adding he sees them regularly but does not live with them.
Maybe that’s for the best. Last year Elon said the following about his dad in an interview with Rolling Stone:
“You have no idea about how bad. Almost every crime you can possibly think of, he has done. Almost every evil thing you could possibly think of, he has done. Um…”
Elon never got into details about what exactly his father had done. RS says he did a few little murders, no big whoop. They said “he shot and killed three out of five or six armed people who broke into his home” but was cleared when it was deemed self defense.
According to Elon, “My dad will have a carefully thought-out plan of evil, he will plan evil“. And I’m sure Errol got an other lovely gift basket from fellow countryman Oscar Pistorius for that.
