Elon Musk’s dad isn’t at all proud of his son for good reason

We now know where Elon Musk got his art of provocation. The father of the billionaire head of Tesla and Space X, Errol, was recently a guest on the Australian radio show The Kyle and Jackie O Show and surprised more than one from the start of his interview. After a glowing introduction to Elon Musk, the show host asked a simple question: “Are you proud of him?” And Errol Musk did not hesitate for a second to answer “no”.

The entrepreneur’s 79-year-old father quickly justified his answer. “We are a family that has been doing a lot of things for a long time. It’s not like we suddenly started doing something, he said. The children traveled with me around the world when they were young. They did some very interesting things. We went to the Amazon together, for example. We went to China when it was quite difficult to get there.”

Showing affection for his son despite this remark, and emphasizing his success as an entrepreneur, Errol Musk however added that Elon Musk was today “not as happy as he would like to be” and that the latter felt like 5 years behind. “I know it sounds weird, but he feels like he’s fallen behind,” he said. Undoubtedly the mentality of all visionaries…

Note that during this interview Errol Musk confided with a smile that he currently did not drive a Tesla but a Bentley and a Rolls Royce. Another little provocation…
