I thought Grimes and Chelsea Manning getting together was a COVID fever dream I had earlier this year, but, apparently, it was real life. Good for them, I guess? Grimes and Chelsea, both 34, are reportedly living together in- oh! Never mind. Page Six is reporting that they’ve broken up. RIP to this bonkers pairing.
Two sources tell Page Six that Chelsea and Grimes are through. One says that they’ve been “breaking up for a while.” So it’s practically a hobby at this point. Their relationship first came out in March, with an insider telling Page Six:
“They’re getting serious. They U-Hauled it,” a source tells us of the fast-paced nature of their relationship. “They’ve been living together in Austin.”
At the time, Grimes had just re-broken up with Elon Musk, with whom she shares two kids. Their son is 2-year-old X AE23644C (sorry, I was too lazy to Google that shit for the zillionth time, so I just smashed my keyboard), and their daughter is 7-month-old Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, or Y for short. News of their second child, born via surrogate, broke around the same time as Chelsea and Grimes’ relationship. Since then, there have been reports that 51-year-old Elon made twins with Neuralink executive, Shivon Wilson. If that’s true, Elon’s kid count is up to 9. Well, 8, if you subtract his 18-year-old trans daughter, Vivian, who wants nothing to do with him anymore.
But back to this breakup. Luckily, Chelsea made the very smart decision to hang on to her apartment in Brooklyn, so she will not be homeless post-Grimes. The famous whistleblower, who spent 7 years in military prison for leaking classified docs to Wikileaks, has been free since 2020. She has a memoir coming out in October called README.txt. Page Six is reporting that they’ve heard Grimes is already back on the dating scene. So, like, is she really into whistleblowers now? It’s too bad Linda Tripp is dead, those two might have clicked.
