The 35-year-old music star spoke out on social media following a report about an upcoming biography, which confirmed that the two – who have son X Æ A-12, 3, and daughter Exa Dark Sideræl, 20 months – welcomed a third baby.
The message came after the names of Elon‘s 19-month-old twins with Neuralink executive Shivon Zilis, who were born about a month before Elon and Grimes welcomed their second child together, were revealed.

“Hey, I wud prefer to not breathe any more life into this current press cycle but I want to de-escalate the narrative atm,” she wrote.
“I spoke with Shivon at length finally, which was long overdue. This wasn’t her fault, plz don’t be angry at her! We respect each other a lot and we’re excited to become friends and have the kids grow up together.”
She went on to apologize to biographer Walter Isaacson, who previously shared a photo of Elon and Shivon with their twins. (In a since-deleted post, Grimes wrote that the situation was “utterly ripping my family apart.”)
“I truly apologize for responding to Walter like that. As u can imagine, that was a very gut level reaction to a thing that has been very hard for me. Communication about the twins wasn’t handled super well in the past, but I now totally understand what happened and totally forgive the situation,” she said.
“Women are so often pitted against each other. Speaking with Shivon, it’s very evident she’s an amazing human and we both just want what’s best for our kids.”
She also said she wishes she could show “how cute little Techno is,” adding, “but my priority rn is keeping my babies out of the public eye.”
Shivon confirmed that the two were on good terms.
“At the end of the day it all ended up for the best!” she responded.
“Thank you for taking the time to really connect and understand each other. So glad we had such a wonderful talk, was insanely overdue. You’re a total badass and I respect you very much as well. I can’t wait for kiddo play date and congrats on baby Tau as well!”
